Every experience is an opportunity for learning that continually develops throughout a lifespan. Therapy is work that can enlighten individuals thus and promote change. I believe that change starts from within and can have an impact on the rest of the world. If you are going through a life transition, having difficulty with depression, anxiety, trauma, or grief, I can provide services to help with coping, healing, and growth. You don't have to have a problem to come to therapy. Perhaps, you are exploring new interests, changes, and need help navigating those experiences for clarity.

Betrayal or Brink of Divorce? If people were to observe you from across the room, they might look at you and think everything was perfect. After all, you look pleasant and normal enough. What they wouldn't know by looking at you is that you're managing to hide the confusion, grief, heartbreak, and despair that someone who is experiencing the unraveling of a marriage would understand. Yes, you put up a good front because you have to, but the truth is that you're in the midst of dealing with what is perhaps the biggest disappointment of your life.

I work with individuals to address issues of stress, grief and loss, codependency, anxiety, depression, and trauma, and facilitate performance enhancement and psychospiritual healing. Performance enhancement helps you visualize the person you want to become and remove roadblocks that get in the way of becoming that person. I define a trauma as an event that has a lasting negative effect. EMDR and Braingpotting are two of the therapeutic modalities I utilize to help negative experiences become unstuck and heal the wounds caused by stressors, trauma, and neglect.

In my psychotherapy practice I help clients know and understand themselves better and become experts at their own story. The experience of seeing our story fully can be uncomfortable because we may not like what we see. But with compassion and empathy I walk through that process with each client to courageously see their life and identify the ways they want to change. We work together at the clients pace to grow and break out of the cycles that keep them stuck in order to experience breakthrough and healing.

As you have probably learned by now, life doesn't come with a road map. Life's journeys are uniquely individual! When you feel stuck, overwhelmed or seem to be going in circles, you've hit a boulder. Life transitions can be difficult, sometimes painful and tough to maneuver. They typically involve family relationships, career changes, peer interactions, or are related to loss, terminal illness, or caregiver responsibilities. Often, we experience feelings of anxiety, sadness, loneliness or fear; your not alone. Together, in a supportive, non-judgemental environment, we will explore and clarify these issues and underlying feelings.

My approach is to empower clients with the tools they need to grow and create a life that is enjoyable and productive. I work with individuals who feel overwhelmed by depression, anxiety, deep loss, caretaker fatigue, and professional burnout. My belief is that people are largely defined by their past and present experiences. Both past and present experiences can cause psychological distress, anxiety, depression, or feeling overwhelmed.

My use of the phrase “Top of the Morning” greeting began in my days in the operating rooms of the Houston Medical Center some twenty years ago. It was a break away from the traditional greetings. This gave birth to the idea we can begin every day over if we are willing to change. "Top of the Morning" greets you with a sense of hope. My practice invites you to an holistic, mind, body and spirit approach to therapy. Together, we can build a safe, confidential, and responsible client therapist relationship.

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.
