Are you feeling like the rug just got pulled out from under you or that your emotions are too big and overwhelming to cope with? Perhaps you're feeling like you've been dealt a bad hand and are having difficulty managing. I have ten years of experience providing mental health counseling and I can help you. Usually I see in my practice difficulties with adjustments to changes in significant relationships, health, problems with mood, managing stress, or struggles at work, which likely feels overwhelming right now. Life's difficulties and our relation to it, can feel impossible and that we don't have the ability to cope.

I invite you to bring your strengths and motivation to create change in your life. Does ADHD or anxiety impact your life, personally and/or professionally? Perhaps you are challenged by motivation or organization. Or perhaps you feel "stuck" or experience sleep issues. I will work with you to build skills for executive functioning and help you understand and change the root cause of anxiety to build confidence in your life. I offer teletherapy for clients throughout Washington state or coaching for clients throughout the US. Because I live outside Washington, those with severe mental illness are best served by a local practitioner.

I specialize developing a relational space in which self discovery and inner growth can emerge. Less about the functional and directive, this is an emotive, aspirationally impactful approach, based in the long history of the depth/soul work psychotherapy and psychoanalysis have fostered. Therapy is a process, non-linear and creative at times. In that formational space, I am committed to mutual impact, a reflective disposition and the on-going therapeutic process which I earnestly believe can be transformative.

As a neurodivergent person, my approach to therapy is grounded in a deep understanding of the unique and oftentimes disabling experiences associated with having a nontypical neurotype. Drawing from my personal journey, I help with clients who are navigating trauma or looking to foster a more compassionate connection with themselves. In my practice, I prioritize trauma-focused methods such as Internal Family Systems, Lifespan Integration, and psychedelic assisted therapy. These approaches aim to provide a holistic understanding of one's mind-body system and facilitate healing on multiple levels.

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.
