Hi! I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in the state of Indiana. I also have a MS in education and an MS in school counseling. My professional life consists of counseling adults in many different areas of mental/behavioral health and working with teens and young adults both in a school setting and in a behavioral health care setting. My past also consists of working with family relationships and parenting concerns. I have helped people with anxiety, depression, anger management, ADHD, phobias and career changes.
My counseling techniques include cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, rational-emotive therapy, DBT and motivational interviewing. I believe in forming trusting, respectful relationships. I am caring, compassionate and have a sense of humor. I will work hard to learn what counseling techniques work best for you and what you feel most comfortable with.
It is not always easy to take the first step to reach out for help and support. I would enjoy being a part of your journey. I look forward to meeting you!
