Indianapolis is a city best known for its racing event, the Indianapolis 500. It’s an intense car race where there can only be one winner. In life, it can be a bit like a car race. You may be ahead of the wheel one second, and the next, you may end up crashing and burning. 

A counselor can help you win the race, or at least get very close. Life can throw obstacles at your car, and it’s up to you to avoid them and make it to the finish line. A counselor can help you accomplish this goal and allow you to make it to the end of the race.

My approach to counseling is that each individual has the potential within them to accomplish anything. My job is to help you realize that potential and to make peace with the issues that you face. Notice I never said anything about “getting over” what you have going on, because I believe that there are some things that make that impossible. But, I believe that if you are willing to work with me to achieve your goals, you can achieve the recovery you truly want My journey to the present day has been unconventional to say the least.

Counseling can be a scary prospect, but I am here to make it a safe and comfortable place for you to learn and grow. The most important part of therapy is developing a trusting relationship with your therapist. As your counselor, it is not my job to tell you what to do, instead I will work with you to identify what you decide is the best and healthiest path for you. My approach to therapy is person-centered which means that I work with each client on an individual basis to help them find the best of themselves. I would describe my counseling as a warm and safe...

Having a hard time selecting a therapist?

Finding the right therapist can feel intimidating, but there are simple ways to narrow down your search for the Indianapolis area. First, research what type of therapy you’d like to pursue. Maybe that’s psychodynamic, cognitive behavior therapy or couple’s counseling; just pick what’s right for your needs. Next consider whether the gender of your therapist matters, and finally choose a therapist located near you in the city of Indianapolis, elsewhere in the Marion county.

What is the cost difference between conventional therapy and working with one of our therapists above?

The United States has many therapists who are comfortable charging $200 or more per session, but the average price of a therapy session in Indianapolis ranges from $75-$150. Some therapists in the state of Indiana will work on a sliding scale, meaning they’ll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With our therapists serving both the city of Indianapolis and elsewhere throughout the state of Indiana, you can expect significantly more affordable options with sessions ranging from $40 to $70 per week (billed monthly).

Did you know our therapists are not limited to in-person visits?

Online therapists, including all those listed above able to work with people like you in or around Indianapolis offer creative forms of communication to help people like you receive the best type of treatment for your needs. Whether that’s via sms texting with your therapist, video sessions where you see you one another and talk about your problems, live chat or phone sessions, you and your therapist will find the best way to address your mental health challenges.

How to know if therapy is right for you?

One of the rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is that they are listening to your feelings. Our friends and loved ones often hear us, but they may have a hard time providing objective guidance in the way a therapist can. A therapist wants to support you toward a healthier emotional state. In addition to developing healthier emotions, another benefit of therapy is you have a safe space to discuss problems that you may be hesitant to talk about with people in your everyday life.

Many people have sensitive topics to discuss, an addiction or issue with their relationship that they’re ashamed to speak about with their friends or partner. An Indianapolis therapist can help you confront this issue and find ways to face it and heal. With more than 855,164 people in the city of Indianapolis, finding a therapist can be both costly and hard to do. Our goal with the list of therapists shown above is to get you the support you need today. If you’re looking for a nearby therapist close to 46277 or surrounding zip codes, take a look at other available therapists in the popular nearby cities listed below.
