35 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am an Individual, Couple and Family Counselor licensed in the State of Indiana. My undergraduate degree is in Marriage and Family Relations. My Master's Degree is in Counseling Psychology, and my doctoral work is also in Counseling Psychology. I have been a professional counselor for 35 years. I have served numerous clients, with a variety of life issues during this time, including anxiety, depression, relationship/intimacy, parenting concerns, self-esteem, motivation, and domestic violence, as well as many others. My primary counseling style is very relational and respectful. I believe that all persons deserve kindness, sensitivity and understanding. My therapeutic approach includes cognitive-behavioral, rational-emotive and psychoeducational styles. While I would never impose my values or beliefs on anyone, I am a Christian who is comfortable providing biblically-based counseling. I tailor this to each client's request and theology. I have served numerous clients who are of other faiths over the years. Applying biblical principals is as individual as any other aspect of the assistance I provide to each unique client. I love helping others experience growth and health, in themselves and in their relationships. Seeking assistance in this process can be a bit intimidating, and I applaud you for taking this step. I very much look forward to meeting you and helping you in any way I am able.

After all, these are your therapy sessions, and I want you to find value in them. If at any time you have questions regarding my approach, please don’t hesitate to ask.

24 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I hold a Masters and a Ph.D. in counseling psychology and have been licensed as a mental health or professional counselor (LMHC) since 1994. Over the past 25 years, I have worked as an individual counselor with college-aged students and adults in clinical, private practice, and non-profit settings. I also have experience working as an Indiana University (Indianapolis) associate professor in their undergraduate and graduate counseling and psychology programs. My specialty as a counselor is helping you to quickly identify and understand your blind spots and move beyond them. Blind spots are those beliefs or areas of your life that often keep us stuck repeating the same patterns that often cause relationship problems, depression, anxiety, and other issues. Many times in our life, we find ourselves stuck or overwhelmed, not knowing how to move forward. As a counselor, I will encourage, support, and assist you in moving beyond your current situation. Using theories or techniques of cognitive psychology, I help identify the distorted thought patterns that no longer work for you and teach you the tools necessary to grow and move beyond your current challenge. Counseling can help you move beyond a state of helplessness by examining new possibilities and helping you make the changes necessary to create the life you want. The counseling relationship is important to the successful outcome of therapy. By building a relational foundation, you can lessen your defenses and open yourself to the possibilities for change. This foundation enables you to explore yourself and your situation, understand self-defeating behaviors, and make the necessary steps for change. You are an active participant in the counseling process. My approach is warm and empathetic, yet also direct and authentic. It's important to remember that as a counselor, I'm not here to judge you but rather to support, encourage, and guide you as you navigate through challenges.

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

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

Before seeing your Gentryville 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 Gentryville.

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 Gentryville 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 Gentryville 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 Gentryville, 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.
