As children and teens learn who they are and how to navigate being in this world, they can stumble into unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaving. Children and teens suffering from challenges such as depression, anxiety, social anxiety, self-harm or defiance can learn new and healthy ways to think and act and to feel better. Helping children and empowering their parents is my passion. Together through art, talk and play we will explore and utilize the child's and family's strengths. We will build upon joy and face the shadows creating a skill set from which children can draw to live their best lives.

Everything we do involves relationships; so when we are not feeling effective in this part of our lives, other parts suffer as well. Over the past twenty five years I have worked on relationships with teenagers and adults through individual, family and couples work. My specialty is effective communication coaching in order to get needs met in relationships. I do this through the lens of family systems work, asking thoughtful questions and offering perspective. Anyone who is willing to walk through the therapy door and want more out of their relationships is who I welcome in my office.

We all need a place to be seen and be real. To not have to worry about getting judged, saying the wrong thing or hurting the feelings of those whom we love and often confide. I see adolescent and adult individuals looking to develop coping skills for depression or anxiety, process trauma or grief, set healthy boundaries, or simply be heard in a safe and confidential space. We work together to find the tools needed to navigate life's challenges. While our intentional focus will be working towards your identified goals, it's important to acknowledge the unintentional benefits of simply having a space to call your own.

Are you overwhelmed with life and struggling to manage it all? Is it all too much? Do you find yourself saying yes to things that you don't really want to do or don't have time for, but fear disappointing friends, family, colleagues. Yes, life can certainly be overwhelming, especially if you are a highly sensitive person (HSP), and are highly attuned to the needs and emotions of others. It can be incredibly difficult to over empathize with others, while still being attuned to your own needs. Is this impacting your health and sense of wellbeing? Gabor Maté labels this tension, Authenticity vs Attachment.

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.
