Immediate Openings Available. Why do people come to therapy? Maybe your stress levels are through the roof, you’re exhausted and all of your mental bandwidth is full. There’s some trauma, guilt, and shame making you feel stuck. Stress is taking up all of your capacity. Sometimes you can't do things as you may not have the mental energy. That to-do list keeps getting longer and you feel guilty for not finishing it. Daily tasks can take so much energy that it’s easier to hide the dirty dishes in the oven before people come over. Seeing someone can help you find relief and reduce procrastination and avoidance.

As free human beings we have the gift of making choices in our life. One big choice is taking the opportunity to reach out for support and guidance when we aren’t operating at our optimal level. We often minimize our mental health needs; however, it is of vital importance to our overall well-being. Whatever your mental health needs are, the key role of a therapist is establishing a good therapeutic relationship. They need to be willing to walk with you for a time on your own individual journey. I am honored to be a therapist and have that opportunity to work with you.

Navigating the intricate twists and turns of our lives can often leave us feeling overwhelmed, searching for support and understanding in a seemingly chaotic world. It takes immense courage to reach out for help during these moments of vulnerability. While society may sometimes paint seeking help as a weakness, in reality, it's a profound display of strength and self-awareness. I approach therapy with a deep respect for your unique story, identity, and the cultural context that shapes your worldview.

My guess is that you are struggling with how to cope with the life that’s around you. Your relationships likely have reoccurring disagreements. You’re stuck in a pattern that you don’t understand or at least don’t know how to change. You may feel overwhelmed, tired, angry, sad. My second guess is you’d like things to change and you’re ready to find someone who can help you do that. You probably want to feel joy, peace, and that you can be fully yourself without fear of what anyone else thinks.

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.
