Relationships are often the most difficult part of our lives. While they may provide companionship and comfort, they can also be a source of conflict and pain. Regardless of who we are or from where we came, we will each face life events that challenge our sense of self. Our response to each event - a crossroad - can shape the remainder of our journey. I am honored to walk with you as you consider your paths and take those crucial steps.

"A helping hand when life doesn’t make sense” My pursuit has been to provide a helping hand to folks who are hurting, sad, tired, confused, angry, betrayed, discouraged, or disconnected. With all the joys and blessings that life can bring, it can also bring a sense of being uncertain how to proceed or being overwhelmed to the point of dismay. Let me assist you as you sort through some of the challenges you find unpleasantly persistent. I work with individuals, adults, children, and adolescents, and couples and families.

Somewhere along the way, you learned to shrink parts of yourself in order to make others feel more comfortable. You are constantly concerned with what other people think of you, want from you and need from you, and feel you can't prioritize yourself. People-pleasing aka codependency can be a serious issue that wreaks havoc on your life if not addressed and worked through. Seeking approval from others is usually a deep-seeded attachment pattern that was developed in order to get your needs met at one point in time, however, you are not that same person anymore and do not need to rely on those patterns - so it's time to change them.

Oftentimes, "counseling" has a negative connotation - counseling is for people who have something "wrong" with them, or it's for people too weak to handle their problems on their own. I don't buy that. We live in a hurried and difficult world. Pain and confusion seem to shadow us wherever we go. Sometimes our relationships slip. Sometimes we find ourselves puzzled about meaning and purpose. Sometimes we just need someone to help us make healthy choices. In my office here in Houston, you'll find therapy is confidential, safe, and solution-oriented.

New year, same ol' stuff? I get it. You maybe never thought you would "need" therapy, but now you find yourself on the hunt for someone to talk to. You might struggle with feeling as though you can't control your emotions or like you've exhausted all your energy. Maybe this has led to difficulty being present in your relationships, meeting your job or family's demands, or sacrificing your own needs at the expense of others. You may have been a pro at "white knuckling" through all the chaos life threw your way, but now find yourself depleted and overwhelmed.

The need for help is a deep instinct that dwells in each of us. There are times in our lives when we face challenges that leave us feeling overwhelmed, trapped, frustrated, confused, depressed, or anxious. When we reach this point, it is natural to look for direction and support from the people and world around us. If you are feeling at a loss, afraid or frustrated, or if you are struggling with a difficult change in your life, psychotherapy can help move you toward a greater sense of well-being and empowerment.

Life brings you many challenges. You may be dealing with a roadblock and the future you were planning is no longer possible. Maybe you’ve just experienced a loss, are worrying constantly, or feel like a burden. If you’ve been feeling some of these negative emotions but trying to avoid them, you’re not alone. We all struggle at different times and it can be scary to even start the search for help. Many people feel ashamed or weak for seeking therapy, but I’m here to tell you that you are stronger for it. It takes a lot more courage to start therapy than to continue living in pain.

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.
