I am licensed in Indiana with 15 years of professional work experience. I have a wide breadth of training in different therapeutic modalities. I am a cancer survivor and fighter and this has deepened my empathy for working with those facing overwhelming obstacles. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, & trauma and abuse. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. I like to help clients learn that peace is within and always accessible at any time. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!
