Hope of healing is at the heart of my work. There are many who have come to believe feeling numb, disconnected, and incredibly lonely is normal. You do not have to live this way. Anxieties and sorrows can spiral into feelings of helplessness, leading to self-isolation, suffering, and uncertainty about how to find support. I am passionate about facilitating time and space for awareness of all that makes you who you are. As a Level One trained IFS (Internal Family Systems) practitioner, I strive to help you access and embrace the inner parts of you, guiding you back to love of Self through understanding and healing.

I am currently focusing on intensive psychotherapy or psychoanalysis to address deeper issues and problems which may not have responded adequately to psychotherapy. The techniques I use enhance self-understanding and are beneficial for relationship issues, entrenched personality traits, and reducing personal limitations. I see children and adults with a variety of issues including: depression, anxiety, personality difficulties, and abuse issues. I also have expertise in mother-infant issues. If you want regular psychotherapy/counseling, I do that too. I will respond faster to phone calls than email. See my website at: beckybaileyphd.com

Trying to figure out the next step can be overwhelming and lonely when we feel stuck. Whether we are trying to navigate relationships, personal and religious beliefs, or sexual/gender orientation- it can be hard! I truly believe you are the expert of your life, and believe the answers are within you. Sometimes we may know where we want to get to but feel the next steps to getting there are unsteady, unfamiliar or not even visible at the moment. Having a place to be able to emotionally process and break down realistic and meaningful steps can help to find clarity and find coping strategies that fit for you.

It’s about helping you see and understand yourself enough that you are able to stop engaging in patterns that you know are working against your growth. It's to help you understand why you feel anxious or depressed yet think shouldn’t be feeling that way. (I assure you there are reasons for why you feel the way you do.) It’s to help you understand why you push people away when you want them to come closer; why you keep returning to those partners and jobs that crush you.

Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate - Jung. We are shaped by our relationships and experiences from early on, then repeat and reinforce familiar patterns, often without realizing it. Over time our ways of adapting, coping and self-protecting can create new problems or become fixed and self-defeating (such as pushing others away because you have been hurt before). I enjoy working with adults grappling with a range of issues. People often come in feeling stuck. They may not know why they feel what they feel, or do what they do. They might feel numb and emotionally disconnected.

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.
