Yes, therapy can change your life! I understand that it can be a scary step, but it can be one of the bravest things you do for yourself. You no longer have to try to do it all on your own. Through a safe and compassionate approach, I will help you create a roadmap for your healing, inner peace, and self-confidence. And when THERAPY is combined with your FAITH, it can become one of the most powerful practices to create transformations from the inside out. “Do not let your hearts be troubled; do not be afraid." John 14:27

Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, bi-polar disorder, past traumas, work/life interpersonal or relationship stressors? With over 7 years of experience, I am skilled at helping clients to quickly identify their strengths to determine the direction and depth of therapy. I integrate talk therapy and mindfulness practices to guide clients toward feeling better and finding the answers they seek within themselves. Clients I work with quickly decide their level of commitment, and begin exploring how core beliefs, thoughts and past experiences impact them in the here and now, therefore improving insight and power to change.

There are times when we know that we need to make a change in our life. You might be noticing a quiet unrest, a consistent dissatisfaction, or the call to change may come through a life transition---a death, a loss, job or relationship stress, illness suddenly needing to care for elders or children moving home. The circumstances can vary, but the knowledge that change is needed is clear. My goal is to help you discover your true potential while we sort out what needs to be different, and lead you into a life that is worth celebrating.

My priority is to create a therapeutic environment in which clients feel comfortable and accepted. I am here to support your desire to feel better and together we will tend to the root causes of whatever is bringing you to therapy. I’m also a Registered Dance/Movement Therapist, which means that I pay attention to the whole person- mind/body/spirit. In session, we will take time to “be with”emotional discomfort which is much more manageable with support. I hope to create space for your unique process of expression via non-judgement, while simultaneously helping you to identify coping tools that are already stored in your body.

It's the middle of the night and your mind is racing. There seems to always be "one more thing" to do. You've always been so good at crushing your goals. But somewhere along the way, things just started getting harder. Self-doubt and anxiety make decision making seem almost impossible. You're responsible for so many things: your home, your work, your relationships. Sometimes, you may not even remember why you said "yes" to all these things in the first place. So here you are, overwhelmed, unsure, and doing everything you can to "keep it together." You put on your "brave face," hide how you're feeling, and hope no one notices.

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.
