Anxiety, depression, or even intense stress can often get in the way of living the life we are meant to live. I begin by assisting you in gaining a sense of empowerment and clear plan to move toward or return to your true self. I provide space for you to break down self-destructive thought and behavioral patterns often caused by a history of trauma, abuse, or loss. You soon begin living your potential with improved body, mind, and soul connection. In couples therapy, I assist in healing the partnership by regaining connection and establishing shared meaning for more consistent positive interactions and fulfilling relationship.

I believe healing is a process; with each layer you shed through healing, your values will shift and grow. I work with individuals, 8 years old and up are feeling a sense of stuckness but are not sure where it lives. We will take what you already know about yourself, even if it’s just a bit, and dive into where you seek to go. The clients I work with are eager to make shifts in their life, crave feedback and support, while knowing that change can be a slow process. The goal for each person I work with is that you begin to understand the places in your life where you can live more fully.

My number one intention as your therapist is to help you have a new experience in therapy and in life. I cultivate a space that allows you to approach experiences that you may be avoiding due to fear, the unknown, or a difficult past experience with curiosity, confidence, and compassion. I believe that in doing so, you can receive new insights about your abilities, what you can tolerate, and how you view yourself and others in the world. My approach is dialectic as it is focused on compassion, flexibility, as well as accountability for therapy success inside and outside of session.

His journey to becoming a therapist came from having run addiction recovery groups as a volunteer for nearly 3 ½ years. There he found how much pain people live with, often while working hard to appear as though nothing is wrong. There is something so incredibly powerful about seeing someone being validated and heard. Before returning to Lifestance, he worked at Renaissance Ranch Treatment Center–helping those in the acute phase of addiction recovery.

I believe that all healing starts with developing a sense of connection and empathy with yourself and others. I support clients 16 to 50 years old who desire building the life they always imagined through understanding their drive for change. Each client I connect with seeks to deepen their understanding of self through feedback, cultivates the ability to ask when they want someone to listen and knows that their trauma is not something to be forgotten but a piece within them to be nurtured for rewiring.

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.
