Hello! I'm a warm, authentic and expert therapist-educator with over 20 years of experience empowering positive change in female clients.
Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Noblesville, IN
I treat women of all ages (15+) who have OCD. OCD is an anxiety disorder and can show up in overthinking, relationships, morality, eating disorders, and overanalyzing conversations/memories/interactions. Persons with OCD also often suffer with anxiety attacks, very difficult and unwanted intrusive thoughts they are afraid to share, and OCD may lead to depression. OCD also presents as washing, checking, and cleaning behaviors. Depression and anxiety commonly co-occur with OCD.
I use psychodynamic, Narrative, IFS, and CBT to treat women of all ages (15+) who have experienced trauma. Family of origin trauma, sexual abuse/assault/rape, medical trauma, violent crime, religious, and interpersonal trauma are all areas in which I have over 20 years of experience in treating. Our goal is to decrease the symptoms that you are having initially, learn coping skills, and use newer therapies that help you to be able to regulate your emotions and release trauma, piece by piece.
My passion is working with women to empower, heal, and help you grow into your true self. No one can define who you are except for you. You are not a sum total of your roles in life. We will use depth psychology, IFS, CBT and other approaches that match your personality and have been shown to be effective in research to achieve healing and growth. I work with high school and college aged young women, expectant mothers, new moms, empty nesters, single women and menopausal women.
