Each one of us has the capacity to change our own path with the help of transformative therapy. Anxiety, depression, frustration, loneliness and feelings of helplessness can impact our daily lives- yet we have the ability to change our perspective. Hope, joy and purpose can be found by processing our feelings to move forward in a positive direction. Helping people heal, begin to affirm who they are, and process their thoughts and feelings to fully embrace their future is the focus of my practice.

Are you feeling alone, anxious, grieved, or deeply sad? Traumatic events and losses in life are very common, yet rarely discussed. They have a far-reaching impact on our lives, our relationships, our health, our work and our play. Also, research has found that the way we were cared for as children greatly impacts our relationships throughout life. For some of us, this can feel very overwhelming. The good news is that we can heal from past hurts and enjoy more contentment and peace of mind starting today. Using scientifically sound practices, we can actually change the way we think, feel, and relate to others.

On the outside, everything seems just fine. But on the inside, you feel overwhelmed, stressed, and broken. You're trying your best to hold it together, but you're slowly crumbling. The obstacles are so intense that you feel like you're drowning inside. Maybe your struggles are personal barriers that you are facing. Maybe your child has challenging behaviors that you can no longer manage. Let me help you get back to the place where you had control of your life and feel happy, healthy, and whole again. Or maybe you've never felt those feelings before, but long to get to that place. You're not in this alone.

Our lives are full of various transitions as we grow. Some transformations may result in distress, some may be positive, all of which impact us and who we are. I believe that our experiences can be problematic when they do not fit our understanding of who and how we show up in the world. Whether you are noticing an unexplainable change, searching for a transition, or experiencing a major life shift, therapy can be a space where that change can play out and be acknowledged with safety. Together we can embrace your authentic experience, make meaning out life fluctuations, and thrive as the most congruent version of you.

Seeking a quiet mind, calm emotions, healthy connection with self and others, and freedom from addiction or trauma? Lost hope and in fear of never learning to respond instead of react or master your mind and emotions? If our mind and body don't know they are safe, they are going to be reacting from a place of survival in all of their interactions. With addiction and mental health, it’s rare a client doesn’t have a history of trauma. None of which we caused or asked for. We all operate out of the lense of our experience. Understanding trauma and the "legacy" of symptoms it leaves behind in the mind AND body is integral in healing.

I know you're feeling stuck right now, and I get it. It's like no matter what you do, you keep running into the same walls. You might have days when it feels like you're not enough, or when you hear that inner voice telling you that you can't do it, that you don't deserve it, or that you're just not worthy. Those are the kinds of thoughts that keep looping in your mind, over and over, pulling you down.

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.
