16 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Indiana with over 15 years of experience working as a therapist and life coach. I earned a Bachelor of Arts (Major: Psychology) from Indiana University, Bloomington in 2003 and earned a Masters in Social Work (MSW) from Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis in 2008.

I am passionate about empowering and supporting individuals who have been in or are currently in emotionally abusive or toxic relationships. These relationships may include, but are not limited to, love bombing followed by gaslighting, isolation from your friends or family, questioning your own reality, feel as though you've lost your sense of self, and have a desire to leave but can't bring yourself to go through with it or a desire to get back together with your partner even though you know it is not healthy for you. My goal is to educate you on toxic traits and red flags, empower you to find your sense of self again, and equip you with the tools necessary to heal from this silent abuse. My therapy style is warm, interactive, empowering, yet straightforward and forthright. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmas or labels. I believe everyone has power within them to heal and make healthy changes in their lives. My job is to help you find that power so you can rediscover your voice and start creating the life you want to live! My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Columbia City therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Columbia City due to a higher cost of living.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Columbia City?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Columbia City therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Columbia City therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Columbia City therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Columbia City therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in IN, therapists may be booked out with clients.

If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 46725 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Columbia City counselor?

Before seeing your Columbia City therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Columbia City.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Columbia City licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Columbia City counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Columbia City, Indiana can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Columbia City has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
