I offer a free, 30-minute consultation. Are you feeling off or not quite yourself? Maybe you function well on the outside but inside you feel anxious, depressed, or disconnected. Maybe you're struggling with existential concerns: meaninglessness, death anxiety, feeling lost or isolated. I have found that the most uplifting and healing moments in life occur when we are completely open and exposed to another person and then accepted for who we are. In my practice, I value my clients whole-heartedly and emphasize your autonomy and personal choice. You are the expert on your own life.

In therapy, I enjoy walking alongside my clients as they experience growth and healing in their lives. We are not what happened to us, we are not a diagnosis, but we are humans who are capable of so many great things and to live a life that we love. I went into this field not to tell people how to fix their lives (which I won’t) but how to create their own change with guidance and exploration. We are in this together and you are not alone.

We all have our ups and downs in life and sometimes life can feel really harsh when we least expect it. Thoughts and memories from your past may be intruding in your current life. In therapy, you will learn to stop the panic, stop the racing thoughts, feel less sad and process the parts of your past that continue to effect you today. I work collaboratively with individuals, drawing on techniques, like EMDR and sand tray, to assist you in moving beyond the symptoms of your struggles to uncover the underlying causes of “stuckness” or suffering.

You keep thinking that this is just a stage or a passing behavior your child is going through. You stay up late searching online for books, articles, or blog posts looking for something new to try because nothing you do is working to help your child. The meltdowns, temper tantrums, yelling and the power struggles in your home are not how you pictured family life. It's too much noise, too much stress and the chaos is draining your energy. This is not the adventure you signed up for or learned about in Parenting 101. It's time for change.

You know all the right things to do, exercise, hobbies, spending time with friends and family, but something is still wrong. You feel like you should be enjoying time with your loved ones but can’t figure out why you don’t. You wonder where the “you” you used to know has gone. You don’t know who you are outside of who you love or what you do. You know what you’re required to do but not what you want to do. You started your career with the belief that you would make a difference in the broken system only to realize that you are now feeling broken.

Growing up as an only child in two culturally different households was tough. It feels like you’re always shape shifting to make everyone else more comfortable. Never getting a chance to relax into yourself. This left me on high alert, constantly second guessing all of my decisions. I didn’t know who I was, I was stuck feeling depleted and anxious to make any moves for fear I would seem foolish, or worse, fail. I became a therapist to help people who feel lost, whip those nagging voices in their head into shape. I'll help you challenge the unhealthy patterns you’ve gotten into because of doubt, shame, and believing the haters.

Traditional talk therapy doesn't always give us the results we want, especially when working with trauma. I work best with clients who prefer a direct approach and have been trying to heal from trauma for a prolonged period of time without a lot of results. I found that spirituality is an important part of the trauma healing process. To me, spirituality looks like connecting with nature and the earth and expands beyond the traditional perspectives. Trauma often comes with addictions and I do not take the abstinence-only perspective on addiction and tend to emphasize harm reduction as an alternative.

Being present with yourself looks like acknowledging and learning what you need which is challenging especially for young people, and those who experience anxiety and depression.

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.
