Regardless of the times, the circumstance or the individual, building a relationship with trust, value and efficacy matters. We also believe that this can look different for everyone. Given that, it is important that prior to finding the right therapeutic approach that meets your specific needs, we must first develop a mutual understanding and rapport with one another that feels supportive in moving forward. Next, it will become our responsibility to listen and understand what it is you would like to address and what your goals are. Your voice, experiences, and perceptions will lead us through this process.

Our experiences, traumas, and unexpected transitions shape our lives and perspectives. Sometimes we need help to process and proceed. Through experience working with people coping with their most difficult moments I've gained a unique understanding of resiliency and finding peace through life's chaos.

As the daughter of a narcissistic or emotionally limited mother, you know what it’s like to be your mother’s saving grace at 9 am and the reason for everything wrong in her life by noon. Your mom very likely made you responsible for her feelings while completely invalidating your own. You were “being difficult” and “too sensitive” when upset. Your slightest mistakes were made out to be your biggest transgressions. Now, without a roadmap, intimacy and relationships are a challenge for you. Intellectually, you know how you got here but making sense of your own mess is painful and confusing.

My strong desire to help others came naturally, growing up with a parent who was a first responder and through exposure to people with developmental disabilities in our community. I’ve tailored my education to support my passion of helping others. In 2021, I graduated from the University of New Hampshire with my Master's in Social Work. All of my jobs have focused on people, from my first job spending summers as a camp counselor with young children to my more recent jobs of working with at-risk youth and their parents, to my current work providing therapy to children, adolescents and adults.

Life is about so much more than going through the motions. But heavy changes or adjustments, grief, anxiety, stress, and struggles with relationships make a full life hard to live. Some days it’s easier to merely function instead of thrive. The goals and fulfillment you once had slip through the cracks. Your wellness is hard to fight for. You’re trying to move on with your pain, but it holds you down like an anchor. You can’t help but see everyone around you rising and moving forward; what happened? How can you begin again and grow?

ALERT: Now taking individual clients for in person or virtual sessions — Attending therapy for the first time can be scary for many. Individuals tend to fear judgment, change, the unknown, and what they might discover in therapy but my aim is to provide a safe and welcoming place for one to talk about their concerns. I strive to create a space that feels safe, grounding and compassionate for all. From this space I believe individuals can improve coping skills, communication skills, improve relationships, establish healthy boundaries, set goals, decrease levels of depression and anxiety along with much more.

We all have ideas about how we "should" feel, what our life "should" look like, and how we are "supposed to" deal with the hard stuff. You're ready to get on with the life you want, but you're finding old stories, old ways of thinking and old habits are holding you back. You’re experiencing signs of depression, you're stressed, feel ashamed, and wondering - is this normal, am I normal? Maybe you've been using alcohol or cannabis, or other ways to zone out, to dull the pain and pass the time but that's starting to cause problems too. If it's hard to see a way forward, therapy can help you gain some clarity.

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.
