In therapy, I strive to create an environment where every client feels heard & understood. I want to walk alongside you and be a support for whatever you need. These areas can include: developing new coping tools, exploring difficult issues, creating healthier relationships, processing trauma through EMDR, conquering anxious and/or depressive thoughts, or grieving life’s losses. Our time together can also simply be a space to discover more about your authentic self.

Have you ever felt overwhelmed with school, work, children, or just life in general? Has life changed unexpectedly? Is past trauma preventing you from experiencing life to its fullest? Have you been dealing with feelings of sadness or hopelessness that do not seem to go away? Do you feel isolated or misunderstood? If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, just know, you are not alone. We all encounter a time when we feel insecure, overwhelmed, scared, or even lost. Sometimes these issues can become unbearable, but with the right tools and a strong ally, we can grow and heal in ways that we never thought possible.

Welcome. I imagine you find yourself considering therapy because at times you struggle with feelings that are overwhelming. You may be experiencing confusion or frustration because certain relationships are consistently challenging or you feel stuck in patterns of behavior that limit your ability to achieve your goals. When we experience these things it makes it difficult to feel connected to ourselves and others. This lack of connection can be lonely and distressing. Some of us have used drugs, alcohol, food, relationships, self-criticism and other self-defeating behaviors to numb the pain of disconnection.

How do you define adulthood in a modern world? No one tells you how to be an adult. Or maybe too many people tell you too many things. And how do you know when you’ve gotten there? The answer to this question is different for everyone. It’s not surprising you’re feeling lost, confused, anxious, or depressed thinking about adulthood. Our brains continue to develop well into our mid-20s, yet society expects us to have things figured out by then. I know I definitely didn’t! People wait much longer to meet the milestones of previous generations, and then are just expected to know how to navigate everything in the meantime.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
