-Accepting new Adult clients- Throughout life we travel across a variety of paths. Some paths have a nicely paved sidewalk, no cracks or bumps causing us to stumble along the journey. Most of the time, however, our paths take a little clearing and careful steps to get us to our destination. I am passionate about assisting clients in clearing and learning how to navigate their paths. When we meet together you will be greeted with enthusiasm, humor, and the tools to clear and navigate the tribulations in front of you.

Life is difficult; circumstances challenge each of us and, at some point, we need someone with whom to talk. If you find yourself in this position, and are willing to invest the time and do the work, I would be honored to work with you. Everyone is comprised of biological, psychological, sociological, and spiritual components. If one of those parts are missing or damaged, that person will not be whole, and will experience difficulties. Let us explore this together.

Do you feel plagued by disappointing relationship experiences? Do you avoid interacting with family members, co-workers, and/or romantic partners due to the "possibility" for adverse conflict confrontation? My clients often benefit from self-discovery guidance in order to improve self-confidence and increase self-efficacy. The goal is the ability to positively exert control over their own motivation, behavior, and social environment. It is essential that they believe in their "own" capacity to execute behaviors necessary that will result in personal goal achievement.

As the mama of two young kiddos, who is also coping with life’s transitions, I’ve made it my mission to help mamas thrive throughout their pregnancy and postpartum journey, ensuring a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle for years to come. During my first maternity leave, I thought to myself, if I can help mamas manage their mental health and wellbeing (so they don't have to feel like I do right now), I can prevent kiddos from ever needing to come to see me. So, with that epiphany, I became fully trained to work with Perinatal Mental Health through Postpartum Support International.

Pain. Pain is at the root of what typically initiates the desire for change. We have all endured some type of pain…however our world has somehow taught us to compare it to other’s. When we do this, we tend to not trust or believe that ours is enough to be looked at, enough to be talked about, enough to be held. I promise you whatever it is it deserves to be processed and healed.

Serving Southern WI. Thank you for taking the time to view this webpage. Finding the right therapist can be a difficult task. I bring with me over 30 years of experience in my profession. I am a dually license substance abuse and mental health treatment provider. Being dually licensed means that I have credentials to treatment individuals struggling with either alcohol and substance abuse or mental health issues. As is often the case, being dually credentialed also means I am licensed to treat clients suffering from combination of both substance abuse and mental health issues.

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.
