I am a generalist counselor licensed in Indiana with over 20 years of experience working as a therapist and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relational issues, early childhood neglect, caregiver issues, and career challenges. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse as well as critical incident trauma.
My counseling style is warm and interactive yet direct. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, motivational and rational-emotive counseling with humor and practicality. We will form a treatment plan and I will tailor our dialog to help you meet your unique goals.
I believe a good therapist periodically is a client as well, and so I know it takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to listen, support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Tara gets me. We connected right away. She is like an old friend. I feel that she really listens to me. She understands where I come from.
