My name is Gary. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been in the field for more than 15 years. I am an associate faculty member with a major, nationally accredited university in Indiana.

My main focus of counseling has been with individuals and families, focusing on helping the family and the individual cope better with each other. A great deal of my experience has been working with persons who identify at LGBT. I believe strongly in the strength of the person, and in doing so I wish to help a person pull from their own strength to improve their lives. I am a personable and laid back person who will not tell you what you want to hear, but instead help you find a voice to help you with just about any personal issues you may face.

Hello and welcome! My name is Ellen Minter and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have been working in the helping profession for 17 years. Over the years, I have worked with various populations in various capacities. In addition to being a therapist, I have spent time as a teacher, sexual assault victim advocate, hospice social worker, and direct support professional for the developmentally disabled. I learned many things in these roles and it is those things, accompanied with my own personal life experiences that have most equipped me with the necessary skills and understanding to help you navigate the transitions of your life. My therapeutic style is humorous, warm, and direct. While my role may be to help you feel better, I find that minimizing and appeasement are counterproductive to that goal. Always, I am honest and direct. I am very open-minded and I try to be respectful of all I work with. I have a bit of a multi-modal approach. I find that various techniques from different approaches, can work in conjunction in different situations. Life is hard and unpredictable. I hope to help make things easier for you.

I specialize in helping clients with anxiety and stress, challenges with self-esteem, lack of confidence and motivation, and coping with life changes. I also have experience working with neurodivergent and LGBTQ+ clients. I believe in treating everyone, in and out of therapy, with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. As a collaborative, client-centered therapist and coach, I am dedicated to conversations in which you have the opportunity to identify and define what you want in your life instead of the problems you're currently experiencing. We will explore the habits of thought, behavior, and other blocks you see as getting in your way, and partner in confidence-building conversations about how you want to respond to these challenges to get more of what you want from yourself and in your life, and less of what you don’t. In this process, I will be curious about exceptions to problems, and what helps make these exceptions possible. Finally, we will also talk about how you want to use your time with me to support the plans you develop, and how you want to incorporate the successes you experience into your life -- for results that last.

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

Before seeing your Crawfordsville 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 Crawfordsville.

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 Crawfordsville 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 Crawfordsville counselor can be dependent on your process.

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 Crawfordsville, 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.

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.
