About me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Indiana with 6 years of professional work experience. I help clients with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, motivation, self esteem, confidence, and depression.

If we decide to work together we will become a team. We will identify treatment objectives to help us achieve your goals and we will adjust our strategies as we make progress. I am always open to feedback from my clients about the goals we are working on, my approach to the therapy process, and how my clients are feeling about therapy in general.

I look forward to understanding your perspective in how we are working together. I often work with people from many cultural and life backgrounds and look forward to seeing how to incorporate that into our work as well. Together we will combine my skills as a therapist with your strengths and experiences as a person and work to build the life you want.

My personality is calm and easy going. I enjoy laughing at myself. I am comfortable in both more structured approaches to therapy sessions as well as more conversational styles of therapy. Sometimes we will discuss the things you're experiencing in your life, sometimes past experiences, and sometimes we will focus on the tools and strategies I can teach you. Together we will explore how to integrate these techniques into your life and examine the experiences you have as you work toward your goals.

Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started! It is understandable and acceptable if you're not sure what therapy is and how it works, I can answer any questions you have. I look forward to connecting with you and exploring how our time together can build the future you want. Change is possible, healing does happen, and it would be an honor and a privilege to join you in your journey to the life you want.

Brandon understands. Which is not to say he agrees with everything I say! He's honest and fair and encouraging which is exactly what I need. Good match, thank you.

Brandon has been very professional and attentive. He reaches out periodically to check in on how things are going. Have only had one scheduled appt. at this point but so far so good.
