I have two "ideal clients," based on my somewhat distinct skill sets. Right now, I am adding new assessment clients, people who, for a multitude of reasons, require a current psychological assessment. These folks include adults and children who may need assessment of their emotional/personality functioning, educational strengths and weaknesses, or neuropsychological functioning. I can also take a very few individual psychotherapy clients, especially adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, and perhaps uncertainty about the key factors in their lives that interfere with their capacity for joy and personal fulfillment.

Human beings navigate through life utilizing all the skills, logic, and emotions known to them. There are times where it gets difficult and a desire to seek further insight comes from within or encouragement from others. I want to assist in guiding you by seeking to understand, collecting information from the expert "you", and developing a plan to get you where you want to be.

I grew up in Sulphur Springs, and I trained at Indiana Wesleyan University before moving back to my home city! I know that sometimes we all encounter grief and hardships, we feel lost and alone, unable to navigate the next step. You may try multiple avenues to find relief, talking to friends or family, seeking help in books, and often none of it seems to provide any lasting results. Your plans don't come to fruition and you may find yourself empty, anxious, depressed and overwhelmed. I work with stressed and depressed individuals and confused couples.

Hello and a warm virtual welcome! I will like to invite you to a transparent and empathetic safe place that is centered around YOU. A place where there is no right or wrong answer, but one expectation: just BE. Mental Health can be a topic that is very intimidating to discuss with others, but I like to think of mental health as a tune up on your car - you can drive your car for many miles, but eventually you will need adjustments. Like a car, our mind can run, overwork, and eventually break down. However, the good news is that you have an opportunity to get a mental health tune up and make sure your car is running smoothly.

You ignored the problem for as long as possible before reaching out to those around you. You've always relied on your faith to navigate challenges, but it's not working this time. You realize that this has gone on too long. You are anxious, confused, and angry. You don't know what to do or who turn to. You've talked to friends, a therapist and and even a pastor. Nothing has changed! You need help and answers. As Christians you know that you should be doing better. You want to follow the Bible but don't know how. It's so embarrassing not knowing what to do. You know you need guidance, solid tools and scriptural wisdom.

After years of exploring many healing modalities, I’ve found working with the unconscious, more than anything, helps gain insight and understanding that’s necessary to heal quickly, permanently and remove the blocks that get in the way of a happy, successful life. You can’t fix anything until you make it conscious. A wholistic approach that addresses the body, mind and spirit works effectively and will help you to discover the fullness of who you are.

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.
