I am a licensed Mental Health Clinician in Indiana with over 10 years of experience working as a mental health and addictions counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, addictions, and other mental health concerns. I also helped many people who have experienced different types of trauma from death, divorce, to physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. I strive to create a safe space for people to share and reflect. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral therapy, psychodynamic, adlerian approach and acceptance and commitment therapy. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage and strength to seek a more fulfilling and happier life, and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
