Hello-I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Indiana. I have ten years of counseling experience that includes working with individuals and couples. The majority of my clinical experience comes from working at a non-profit mental health agency in New Orleans, where I worked with a diverse group of clients. My previous career was in the military. In that job I learned that I like working with people on a more intimate personal level which is what brought me to the career of counseling. I earned my master's degree in Mental Health Counseling and my Ph.D. is in Counselor Education. I currently teach mental health counseling to graduate students, and supervise graduate students who are learning how to counsel others.
My approach to counseling is solution-focused. I like to talk with clients about the future when their problem no longer exists. I also focus on the strengths each client has and believe the client has the solution to the problem, they just may need a little guidance in forming that solution. My research interests are in the areas of work and family roles, military members, women's issues, and diversity issues.
When working with clients I like for there to be as much collaboration as possible. You and I will talk about what is working and what is not working in therapy for you. I value genuineness in the counseling relationship. I look forward to working with you and see the courage in your for taking the first step toward change!
