About Me

Hi, my name is Bonnie Burke and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) I have worked primarily with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, personality disorders, sexual orientations, adjustment issues and addictions. I am a member of the LGBTQA+ community and I specialize in all areas of life for those in the community, specifically identify, sexuality, relationships and transitioning's.

I have a Master's in Art Therapy from the IUPUI @ Herron School of Art and Design. I prefer to use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Art Therapy. Jungian, Gestalt, Psychodynamic practices and will also use spiritual practices when needed or requested.

I will often use humor to help facilitate the therapeutic alliance and make the healing journey a bit less lonely. My style is conducive to internal processing, not so much for basic coping skills or psychoeducation. Warning: we will talk about your past, your parents and your inner selves. My approach is overall holistic and tailored to your needs and perceptions.

I have been married to my wife for eight years and we have a small zoo, so please excuse the dog barks and the occasional cancellation for a vet trips. I practice what I preach, I will not ask you to do something I myself have not done in terms of clinically executed interventions or practices.

I have lives hours from 10-6ish pm Mon.- Thru., with occasional live hours by special request.

Bonnie has been overwhelmingly understanding of me and my scheduling issues. I had to cancel a session and she was quick to make sure I was safe and okay! And while I was a bit negligent on my end for responses as life got busy, she was always so patient. I was just testing out this app for a month, but thanks to Bonnie, I'll be continuing to renew my account. Sometimes it's just nice to have someone to talk to who validates you. Bonnie is amazing, if you get her, you're gonna love her.

Each conversation I’ve had with Bonnie has provided both insight and catharsis. She listens, she cares and she has a great sense of humor. 10/10.

Bonnie has spent two sessions working with me, and I feel she is helping me already. She’s empathetic and willing to meet me where I am. In these two sessions, I’ve come away with actionable advice, which is helpful for me to use during the week. I appreciate how gentle she has been while encouraging me to try new approaches of processing my emotions.
