Are you finding yourself burnt out? Feeling stuck, isolated, or traumatized by current or historical events? We feel the pressure to better this world but struggle with feelings of hopelessness and powerlessness. At times like these, it is vital to reclaim spaces of joy, safety, and connection within ourselves and the world around us. I am a queer, Jewish, immigrant with firsthand experience of needing to reclaim self within larger narratives of oppression and isolation. I know that this process can often involve navigating trauma and grief. None of us can do this alone.

I work with parents and caregivers who are motivated to improve relationships and restore harmony to their lives. Do you wish your kid(s) would just cooperate? Are you tired of yelling, using bribery and/or punishment? Perhaps you've tried one or more of the popular parenting approaches, but without lasting success. Parenting children and adolescents is hard work, but it can also be fun and rewarding. I help parents who love their children, to like their children.

It takes strength and courage to face your problems head on yet, if we don't we will only continue to live in doubt of ourselves and the world around us. Starting therapy is not an easy choice but, hiding behind our fears will ultimately just leave us feeling stuck. I believe we all have a warrior inside of us that can get us through anything life has to offer and I would like to be a part of the process in your discovery of this internal strength.

Embarking on or returning to therapy is brave, and I'm here to go at your pace. Therapy should be a space where every part of you belongs: where you feel connected, important, and seen. My hope is that over time, you will feel safe enough with me to feel into difficult and upsetting emotions. I will move towards you with curiosity, warmth, and acceptance so that we can go to those hard places together. In our work together, we will also play, be silly, and feel into and towards joy, excitement, and hope. Please note that I primarily work with youth between the ages of 12 and 25 and their families.

At its core, I believe therapy to be about creating space for change. People come to therapy for a variety of reasons—seeking support and healing, desiring change, looking for relief from pain. With a relational and trauma-informed lens, we’ll look at how you landed here, in an effort to find new ways of being that may be kinder to yourself and more congruent with a whole and healthy life. I work with teens, adults, and couples on issues of trauma, anxiety, grief, relationships, life transitions, and identity formation. I have focused much of my work supporting women recovering from trauma.

As a clinical psychologist I work with clients who are attempting to change unrewarding or isolating patterns of relating to others, or struggling to modify unproductive thoughts or feelings. The process of therapy as I practice it relies on developing a trusting and collaborative relationship between client and therapist. It is in this atmosphere of support, encouragement and respect that areas of concern and patterns of behavior can be understood and changed. I work with both individuals and couples. I have advanced training in treating depression, helping couples work productively in relationships, modification of addictive behaviors, and cognitive assessment.

I use a combination of warmth, curiosity, honesty, and respectful humor, and I take a collaborative approach to therapy – while I will always prioritize listening closely to what you’re saying, I’ll also share my own thoughts and perspectives as they arise. I work well with individuals who are actively engaged in therapy and who trust - or would like to trust - their own experience as a valid guide. I see you as the only person who can truly decide what is important to you, and I see myself as someone who can offer some insights and tools that will help you get closer to it.

I strive to help clients understand what is beneath the motivation of using harmful behaviors and attempt to help focus on self-compassion with an understanding that health and wellness is achievable. I like to view myself as a teacher of healthy coping skills where clients are able to over time, enact these skills in their own lives to have the confidence to make changes for themselves. Techniques used to help facilitate our sessions may include family therapy, exposure therapy, journaling and use of psycho-educational resources (homework, books, videos, etc).

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.
