I have been an adjunct psychology professor for undergraduate and graduate studies at Marian University in Indianapolis, IN. I have expertise in treating addictions, mood disorders, anger management, grief, adjustment issues, self-esteem issues, and pornography addiction. I received my master's degree in clinical psychology from the University of Indianapolis. I trained in cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychodynamic theory, dialectical behavioral therapy, client-centered therapy, and motivational enhancement therapy. A therapist must perform good self-care in order to provide good care to others. I achieve my self-care by playing guitar, piano, fishing, and playing with my kids. I look forward to making progress with you on your journey to a healthier you!

I am a highly qualified Licensed Clinical Social Worker [LCSW] with over 25 years of experience dealing with diverse populations of clients that include working with individuals, couples, families, young children, and adolescents. I hold a doctoral degree from Indiana University, 2008, and I received a Master’s degree in Social Work from Case Western Reserve University in 1982. My career involves organizational management, clinical supervision, and extensive experience with completing psychosocial assessments, treatment planning, and collaborating with multidisciplinary teams. I have proven success with engaging clients by empowering them to make positive changes in their lives. I do not view people as fundamentally flawed. I believe people know themselves better than experts in the helping professions. My approach to therapy is based on guiding my clients to work along with me to resolve their identified issues in treatment. A relationship with a therapist is one of the most intimate bonds a person can have in life. Who do you trust with your most private and vulnerable experiences? This is the reason why I take the time to build trust and rapport with my clients. Building trust is a critical part of achieving success in therapy. I am compassionate with strong communication, and interpersonal skills.

22 years of experience as a therapist

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 22 years experience and graduated with Honors. I have experience working with clients with concerns of depression, anxiety/stress, grief and loss, relationship issues, and women’s issues. I may use at anytime during a session any of the following interventions; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Client Centered Therapy, and Stress Management. Oftentimes, the origin of our individual emotional struggles are not always apparent to us. We can become alarmed when these struggles begin to impact on our day to day living and relationships. It is then that clients most often begin to reach out for therapy to gain further insight into their thoughts, actions, and feelings. Distorted thinking patterns can fuel low self esteem and affect every area in a persons life. A once used defense mechanism may no longer be useful or beneficial to your mental health and once identified can be discussed in therapy and clients can learn more adaptive ways of coping. I will do my part to provide a relaxed, compassionate, and validating environment for you to explore your life situation.

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

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300

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

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

Before seeing your 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 Lawrenceburg.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist 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 Lawrenceburg 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 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 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 professional 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 Lawrenceburg, 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?

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.
