20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello and welcome. I am a dually Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Licensed Clinical Addictions Counselor working in the state of Indiana. I consider it my honor to walk this journey with you and thank you for entrusting me with this opportunity. I have been fortunate to serve as a therapist in a variety of settings for nearly two decades. My therapeutic approach can best be describes as person-centered and holistic. I am trained in Illness Management and Recovery, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, addictions approaches, family systems therapy, and a variety of eclectic approaches that can be tailored to fit the needs of each individual client. I truly believe in the therapeutic process and relationship. During sessions, you can expect much support and reinforcement (and some gentle challenging) in a safe and collaborative environment. While we may wish it, therapists do not hold the answers for others. We function more like trail guides so that when you are standing in the dark or unknown, we can illuminate the path that has been there all along. And just as that guide merely shows the path, a therapist cannot do the work for you. This is a team event until you are able to take all the skills and tools you've learned and apply them. My goal is to work myself out of a job for every single client I meet. I believe in the value of work/life balance and will practice what I preach. But I will also promise the gift of 100% of my time and attention when we are together for live video/phone sessions. And we can follow up with chat or email between sessions to ensure you get the best possible experience. I look forward to our journey together.

I am an experienced mental health therapist with expertise in individual, group, and crisis management counseling. My therapeutic approach is based on cognitive-behavioral therapy, strengths-based therapy, and solution-focused therapy, while also considering the systems that contribute to a client's presenting issues.

Currently residing in Lafayette, Indiana, with my family, I am passionate about self-care activities, including playing pickup basketball, weightlifting, yoga, and exploring new hobbies such as golfing and fishing.

I know first-hand that seeking mental health support can be intimidating, discouraging and/or awkward, but it doesn’t have to be. My focus is to create a supportive, safe and client-centered environment in order to allow individuals to be the most genuine and authentic versions of themselves. Together, we'll collaborate to navigate stress and work towards your desired transformation. I received my graduate degree from the University of Southern Indiana in 2015 and went on to complete my clinical training in Atlanta, Georgia. I have been independently-licensed since August, 2020. Currently, I reside in San Antonio, Texas, and I hold licenses in Georgia, Texas and Indiana. Regarding my theoretical orientation, I primarily provide Solution Focused Therapy and Person-Centered Therapy. Yes, I'm very familiar with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (most clinicians are). I may incorporate some elements of CBT; however, by and large, this is not what I do. My approach is non-directive, meaning I likely will not give you a list of tasks to complete in order to feel better (this would be difficult, because I cannot replicate your biology or experiences). Instead, I will be an excellent listener in order to help you process events, thoughts, emotions and behaviors, ask pointed questions in an effort to uncover different thinking patterns, highlight potential barriers to change, help you identify strengths and resources and collaborate with you to work towards your most desired outcome. I operate from the perspective that you are the expert of your own life, and my role is to assist you. Establishing good rapport is critical to the therapeutic process, and I pride myself on being non-judgmental and down-to-earth. Additionally, I fully embrace differences and uniqueness, and I strive to provide culturally-competent care. Keep in mind there are countless "styles" as it relates to therapy. If, for whatever reason, I do not meet your needs or expectations, please know you may change therapists at any time with absolutely no repercussions. I’m eager to learn more about you. Feel free to message me for additional consultation. **Please note that I do not provide emergency mental health services. If you need to speak with a professional immediately, please contact Emergency Medical Services (EMS) at 911 or the National Crisis Hotline at 988.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Darmstadt 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 Darmstadt due to a higher cost of living.

While many psychologists in Darmstadt may not take health insurance, some in the state of Indiana may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Darmstadt 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.

Darmstadt therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs.

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

Before seeing your Darmstadt 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 Darmstadt.

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 Darmstadt 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 Darmstadt 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 Darmstadt, 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.

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.
