Deciding to come to counseling is a first step toward improving lives. I can help with anxiety, depression, coping skills, communication, and transitions. Talking to someone who can see things from an outside perspective can help you determine how to improve what is not working in your life, set goals, and learn new skills which will move you toward that goal.

Perhaps you find yourself in a challenging life transition, processing a significant event or dealing with an obstacle that has left you feeling unsettled and disconnected from yourself. Whatever brought you here, you should be proud of yourself for taking this step toward personal growth. It's my belief that every person deserves the ability to discover, understand, and become the most authentic version of themselves. When we live authentically, it is about more than just being ourselves, it is understanding and owning who we truly are so that we may find more fulfillment and purpose in our lives.

I believe it is in the context of relationship that we begin to build an understanding of ourselves and the world. Whether these relationships have been helpful, harmful, or somewhere in between, they shape the way we think, feel and behave. Therefore, as counseling begins we will take time to be curious about how your relational experiences have impacted you. We will explore your past and current stories. We will spend time identifying what is currently troubling you, possible origins of unhelpful coping strategies, and then together identify steps you can take to begin to find healing or freedom.

Have you ever heard of the term "Kintsugi" before? It's an ancient Japanese art form wherein an artist takes the broken pieces of a vase, and mends the cracks back together to restore the art piece. Each crack is then highlighted with strokes of shimmery, golden paint. Kintsugi encourages the artist to heartily and radically embrace the pottery's scars to reveal a new and enriched beauty. I have always been inspired by the redeeming process of the Kintsugi art, especially as it relates to counseling. The very art form itself seems to question why brokenness should invalidate worth, pride, beauty, and value.

You’re on a unique journey. Your struggle matters. If you are reading this chances are you may be struggling in a particular area of life or with patterns of thinking, behaving and relating that are no longer serving your deeper intentions. When we are no longer aligned with our deeper intentions we can start to feel anxious or depressed or our relationships can suffer. Often outdated modes of coping learned early in life can become counterproductive. When we can increase positive coping, better regulate our emotions, and understand what our emotions are trying to tell us, we have increased success in all areas of life.

It is a given that by being human we must deal with challenges in life. How we do that depends on the skills learned and adaptations made during our growing up years. We establish patterns of behavior and thinking that often interfere with our relationships and happiness. My goal in therapy is to help others identify their problem-causing patterns and learn to use effective life-management skills. My specialty is working with the present-day effects of childhood traumatic experiences, with a primary focus on relationship management skills.

You seem to have it all together on the outside. You have a lot going for you. On the inside you feel stressed, sad, and that you are never enough. There is so much to balance and often you end up being the last priority. It is so tiring. You feel like obligations are never going to end, and you are often looking for a better tomorrow and unable to focus on today.

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.
