Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Indianapolis, IN

About My Clients

My practice accepts adult clients beginning at age 20 years old. I specialize in areas of depression, anxiety, relationships, LGBTQ, grief and bereavement, divorce, perinatal mood/anxiety disorders, parenting, and life adjustments.

My Background and Approach

My background and education include experiences in schools, hospitals, outpatient facilities., and private practice. I am client centered in theoretical orientation in addition to providing CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) and DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) strategies and skills. Acquiring healthy coping skills is incorporated in treatment to improve insight and decrease symptoms. Focusing on emotion regulation, effective communication, distress tolerance, mindfulness, and cognitive awareness is highlighted during therapy sessions. The counseling process is a partnership involving collaboration, respect, and validation.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Everyone deserves self care including emotional, intellectual, physical, social, medical, and personal. I believe therapy offers a space for caring for one's needs in a safe, accepting, and nonjudgemental environment. Focusing on individual strengths and needs is essential for developing positive growth and progress. I look forward to working with you on your personal journey.
