I'm naturally interested in how people experience their lives and how they achieve self fulfilment and secure happy family and personal relationships. What I do is help people realize their goals by finding out what they want and need out of life, and then work with them to solve the parts of their lives that cause them frustration or pain. My approach helps individuals and couples problem solve and identify what is blocking them from creating a great relationship or what is stopping them from moving on with their lives after a crisis, loss or divorce.

Life can be a wild ride, can't it? We go through all sorts of experiences that involve change and loss, from making new friends to falling in love to saying goodbye, graduating from schools, moving to new places, changing careers, getting married, becoming parents, handling financial ups and downs, going through divorce, retiring, and untold other events. It can be challenging to deal with our unfulfilled hopes, dreams, and expectations when things turn out differently than we hoped. Few of us learned how to process our feelings related to these events. The advice we received was that time heals all wounds. If only it did.

Often times people come to counseling because of other people and relationships. Anxiety and depression usually are what is felt from destabilized relational circumstances. People come to counseling to process what has happened in their life or maybe what was done to them. People want emotional healing.

Dr. Joe exclusively provides psychological testing, at which he has 20+ yrs experience. Testing is a great way to answer questions about what’s going on with a person to guide treatment and document eligibility for services and funding, as well as to demystify mental processes that seem abstract and hard to understand. Testing can clarify diagnoses, give a picture of one’s attentional and emotional state, determine learning and developmental levels, and figure out if an ongoing form of treatment is working. Dr. Joe believes mental health services should be fun and human whenever possible! Special needs can often be accommodated.

I practice in a small town and see all kinds of people with a range of challenges. I am lucky to have done my initial years of practice in a large community mental health setting which exposed me to a wide variety of patients with the full range of difficulties. Offering my support to people as they struggle with deeply personal issues is its own reward and I find this work very satisfying.

I provide psychotherapy, consultation and referral services for adults, and play therapy for children. Anxiety and depression impact most people at some point in their lives. In my work with patients, I strive to listen deeply. In my experience, being truly listened to is rare, and helps a lot. Being with someone who strives to understand you without judgment increases a capacity to feel more love and satisfaction. I know that disturbing thoughts, feelings and behaviors have meaning. When these meanings can be understood, life starts to feel better. This work can help you to begin to heal, but it is a process.

My ideal client is motivated to change, but struggling to find the right path for them. The issues facing them are usually falling into patterns of thinking or behaving that may have served a purpose at some point, but no longer do. I work together to develop their goals and check in regularly to get feedback about the process. I like to develop a connection and share positive reframes of their perceptions, primarily. My reflections help them take objective steps toward reaching their goals. My clients are looking for an objective outsider to share ideas with in order to change the way they think, act and feel.

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.
