Are you a gifted adult or child who is struggling with your uniqueness and understanding your place in the world? Or are you a police officer struggling with the demands and stresses of the job? Through counseling, I guide clients toward healthy functioning in their professions, educations, and relationships.
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
It may be no surprise that everyone struggles with something. But that doesn't necessarily make it any easier to feel or cope with your pain. Perhaps you've reached out to trusted friends or family members for support, but are still looking for additional resources. Or maybe what you're struggling with feels too burdensome or difficult to share with those closest to you. It could be, as is often the case, that your primary concern has to do with the very person you would normally confide in! Whatever the situation, I hope to be the extra measure of support you are looking for.

Marriage & Family Therapist, MS, LMFT
I believe that we are all hard-wired for connection, relationships, and safe attachment. I am passionate about helping my clients learn to become the best version of themselves. I believe that we often get stuck in life attempting to solve problems the same way over and over. Once we get caught in this pattern, especially in relationships, we begin to argue over how we are fighting instead of working through relationship barriers. I help my clients learn new skills that will allow them to break problematic cycles and find new ways to connect with others.

If you are facing challenges you never envisioned and want a safe place for honest conversation, practical feedback, encouragement and hope, please call me.
Hi! I provide in-person and HIPPA-secure online individual, family, and couples therapy for a wide range of concerns, related to anxiety, depression, and life transitions. I also have a therapy dog, Queso (a papillon/corgi mix breed), who enjoys spending time with clients and assists me in providing therapy. Many of my clients love working with Queso the therapy dog, as they can pet him to self-soothe, look at him instead of me, or use him as a distractor to let themselves talk about challenging emotions or events.

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.
What type of therapist is right for me?
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.
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 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.
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.
