I utilize research based science, philosophy and creative expression to help clients examine their life, create strategies for change and ultimately, move forward in their life.

Change moves through all of us. Our essence is to have compassion, joy and well-being. I believe that all people have the capacity to heal, grow, and have quality lives.I work closely and intimately with clients to achieve the differences that they want. What I believe works is to be completely present with people as they look for changes and then to integrate those solutions in daily life. Therapy isn't about just about what happens in the counseling office. It is also about what unfolds in one's day, one's family, one's relationships. Together we create how.

Do you struggle feeling a sense of trust and connection in your personal relationships? Do you have a fear of being left or difficulty forming an attachment with someone you really care about? Someone who is really important to you? Often this is the case when we've experienced attachment wounds from our earliest caregivers. This wounding becomes a part of nervous system and sets the stage for our adult relationships.

Trauma and chronic stress can leave us disconnected from our sense of self and inner wisdom. This can make life difficult, as your guidance system is not easily accessible and external factors end up steering your life. You may also feel a general lack of safety in your body and this world. Healing past trauma, improving relational patterns and building self-trust, can support you in living a more aligned life. I know how hard this work is, including owning what you Actually want and holding yourself with compassion for what has already occurred.

Life is hard, plain and simple. Life is even more difficult when you or a loved one are struggling with mental health and people around you are constantly invalidating and dismissing those real emotions. The stigma that surrounds mental health is powerful—it can make the idea of therapy seem as though there is something wrong with you, when in reality, there is such power in realizing you need help and reaching out for it. Sharing your story in a confidential space may seem daunting, but ultimately, the process can lead you to greater self-awareness, self-esteem, and most importantly, a more fulfilling 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.
