(LCSW)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Indiana. I have worked in the field for 30 years in many capacities, but most extensively as a mental health counselor. My experience is predominantly with adults, young adults and couples of all configurations. My specialty areas include anxiety, relationship issues, assertiveness training, mindfulness techniques, mediation, self-image, and grief and loss.
Counseling services offer people the opportunity to heal suffering, to increase well-being and to explore and ultimately move through emotional and psychological obstacles in their lives. It is my belief that effective counseling is guided by the expertise you have about yourself and your willingness to enter into a mutually respectful and professional relationship with a counselor. The theoretical basis for my practice is Gestalt Theory, which emphasizes present moment awareness, which is shaped by patterns of our past, and realness. I am a trained therapist, yes, but first and foremost, I am a human being, with flaws, fears and failings. What I offer my clients is a human connection and a safe space for them to also be human, without judgement.
I look forward to our work together.

Keirsten is compassionate, professional and helpful. I am not judged and I feel heard. She has helped me explore many parts of myself with truth and humility. I highly recommend Keirsten to anyone who needs a listening ear and who wants to learn more about themselves.

Keirsten asks incredible questions and seems to get to the core of issues. She helps me gain clarity on situations by breaking them down in a way that is digestible and honest. After my sessions I always feel better and more capable to tackle life's challenges.

Keirsten is very attentive and patient. I most appreciate that she allows time and space for me to acknowledge some things on my own while offering necessary guidance and scaffolding along the way. She’s been so resourceful, ensuring I utilize all available options to aid in my healing journey.
Thank you, Keirsten!

She listens very well and asks intuitive questions that make you realize how you’re feeling without her telling you how you feel.
