My clients often struggle with anger, anxiety or stress and find themselves in these places because they lack the strategies and tools to either feel better or make the needed changes in their lives. I hope you give me the opportunity to work with you as I will help you identify the problems getting in the way of your success and be sure to explain the "why" behind the skills, strategies and tools that will help you on your way.

I understand reaching out can be extremely difficult, especially to someone you don't know. I applaud you for taking the step as it is not easy to be vulnerable. Often, the past has wounds that are painful to explore and bring to the surface. However, with an encouraging, supportive, and nonjudgmental relationship, I believe healing and growth is possible and obtainable. You are not broken, but rather surviving from the distressing impact of your past. You are the expert of your experiences, and it would be a privilege to walk alongside you as you find the power to change your thoughts and change your life.

Do you feel disconnected? Do you feel a wall between you and a loved one? Do you feel like you are going around and around in circles but never moving forward? When clients come to see me they often feel hurt, numb, confused, frustrated, lost, or alone. I help clients identify the negative patterns they get caught in, connect with themselves and those they care about most, and support them in finding new solutions to old problems.

I am passionate about working with clients challenged by anxiety, stress and fears that prevent them from participating in activities they value, reaching goals, or sustaining satisfying relationships. Many clients come to me when worries, fears or thoughts have become unmanageable. They may have rigid rules, unrealistic expectations or patterns of perfectionism. Some find themselves avoiding situations or people out of fear. Together we explore ways to work through hard emotions, unhelpful thoughts and behavior patterns.

Maybe you've received diagnoses that don't make sense to you, or you've been told your struggles are "all in our head" and you just need to "try harder." Many adults with signs and symptoms of ADHD & Autism share this experience. They are folx who find themselves burnt out and stretched thin after decades of wearing a mask of inauthenticity, trying to fit themselves into the mold that neurotypical society says is the "right" way to be. But what if I told you that's not true? That there is no wrong or right way to be your authentic self in the world, regardless of what you may have been told throughout your life.

Sometimes life can feel like a rollercoaster that we somehow can’t seem to exit, don’t know how we got on it in the first place, and are then having to white knuckle it as best as possible. That is why I went into this field to not only learn tools to help others work through challenges, but also provide a space to feel safe, seen, and fully understood without judgement. My goal as a therapist is to walk alongside you, help you grow, and help curate security with yourself, your relationships, and feel more emotionally balanced.

I believe it is possible to experience peace in any of life’s circumstances. One thing that comes between us and this peace, however, is our thoughts - without intentional direction for our thoughts, we tend to fixate on our fears, anxieties, and doubts. When this happens, we turn inward and lose connection with what we believe in and the people around us. As your counselor, I aim to guide you to a deeper understanding and validation of your current experience while empowering you to refocus your attention on what is true and life-giving, reestablishing a calming connection with your values, beliefs, and loved ones.

Being a person is hard work; our lives are complex and navigating the world is challenging even in the best of circumstances. What we all long for, a sense of wellness, is not just the absence of affliction, it is the presence of vitality. Each of us has the capacity for this vitality, where we live fully and whole-heartedly. Clients who find my services most helpful tend to be those who are looking for a new way of living, who seek a deeper understanding of their feelings, their relationships, and their life.

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.
