Crisis Resources

As an independent therapist in private practice, I am not able to offer after-hours or emergency services.  

If you or someone you care about is in distress and would like to speak with someone right away, please contact one of the resources below.  

For an additional list of resources by subject area, please check out this list of referrals recommended by the Crisis Text Line.

The Crisis Text Line

Crisis Text Line serves anyone, in any type of crisis, providing access to free, 24/7 support and information via a medium people already use and trust: text.  Text HOME to 741741 from anywhere in the US to text with a trained Crisis Counselor. Crisis Text Line trains volunteers to support people in crisis.  The goal of any conversation is to get you to a calm, safe place.  Sometimes that means providing you with a referral to further help, and sometimes it just means being there and listening.
