In my private practice I believe in a systemic approach to therapy that is individualized for each patient. I use strength based techniques and empower patients to make better choices. It is my willingness to work "out-of-the-box", be creative, and custom fit sessions that has generated positive testimonials. I encourage patients to take the drivers seat in the development and implementation of their treatment plan. This gives you the best chance at positive change and success. My hope is that after every session you feel more focused, balanced, and empowered.

So you've tried therapy before, and it hasn't "worked". You've talked about your problems, they're still there, you're still bothered by your 'stuff' and it doesn't seem like it's ever going to be different. Excellent! Then you're in the right place. We don't just talk about things here, we actually do something about them! Instead of putting a bandaid on it, we're going to dig in and do some trauma work to resolve what's going on. Does that sound like a different approach? Most likely, but I'm a different kind of therapist!

Many people experience challenges in their life, whether it be their marriage, family, or personal life. Transitions, change, and conflict are inevitable, and when individuals are open, courageous, and ready for change, counseling can be very effective. Not every therapist will be good for every situation, and that is why I have spent my career specializing in marriage and family therapy. Many relationships need help at one point or another, but I can help individuals and couples move from confusion to clarity. Are you trying to determine if your relationship is destructive? Difficult? Disappointing?

I am incredibly passionate about increasing the awareness and understanding of Infant Mental Health (Google it, it’s a thing!) and Perinatal Mental Health. Pregnancy, parenting, and all things related can be scary, exciting, and everything in between. And guess what…infants do more than eat, sleep, and poop, and are greatly impacted by their environments. Parents and caregivers deserve to be emotionally well, and there are many factors that can make this difficult, including one’s own history of being parented.

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.
