I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Indiana, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Indiana, and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California.
I was a returning adult student and have been very fortunate to work as a team with individuals and families in office settings, residential and group homes, inpatient mental health care, intensive outpatient treatment, probation, and a college academic environment in my work experience and counselor training. What I learned is that many of us may want and/or need help sometimes.
I also have training and experience in addiction treatment, where I enjoyed helping individuals and families work together to believe in themselves and possibility again.
I have had the pleasure of working with individuals, couples, and families from nearby places and immigrant and refugee families from around the world, with the help of professional interpreters, and all of us working together to create a team respectful of languages and cultures.
My counseling philosophy combines humanistic and experiential theories and emotions and cognitive work grounded in family systems theory.
My goal is to work together as a team to individualize treatment and help you meet your goals.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, LGBT, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Depression
