20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello & Welcome! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Distance Credentialed Counselor who graduated from the University of Indianapolis with degrees in Psychology and Social Work in 2002. I went on to complete my master's degree in Social Work from Indiana University in 2003. I have over 15 years of experience working with individuals, couples, families, and children. In addition to my work in a private practice environment, I am also actively involved in continuing education and higher education. As an adjunct faculty member and internship supervisor, I am able to train and assist Master of Social Work and Master of Counseling students at Indiana University, Butler University, and the University of Indianapolis. This allows me to remain well-versed in research surrounding counseling theory. I also have extensive social work research experience, and I have enjoyed the opportunity to publish and present this research in textbooks, journals, and at national conferences. My personal counseling style and approach is very conversational, empathic, non-judgmental, compassionate and individualized. I endeavor to establish a quick but strong rapport with you in order for trust and progress to be made. I utilize a variety of theoretical perspectives depending upon your needs and counseling expectations. I most often rely upon Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solutions-Based Therapy, and Mindfulness to assist my clients in making progress toward their goal(s). With a good rapport and regular interaction, I strongly believe that you can make progress in the counseling process. I maintain "office hours" for my BetterHelp clients. I pride myself on responding to email messages within 24 hours to maintain consistency and availability to my clients. We all need help and support at different times in our lives, and it takes courage to begin this process. I would be honored to walk through this journey with you. I look forward to working with you soon!

I have experience in both roles of therapy, as therapist and client. I understand the difficulty in seeking help, being vulnerable and facing personal struggles. I value and respect the lives of each of my clients and admire the strength and resiliency that I am privileged to see in my work every day. In our work together, I will help you connect to these strengths within you and work collaboratively to help overcome the struggles that you face. I believe that each of us has a greater purpose in this life and counseling is one of many tools to help achieve our highest potential. My counseling approach is eclectic, meaning that I draw from a combination of counseling theory and techniques. Each of us is unique in our thoughts, feelings and worldview; therefore, I believe therapy should not be a one-size-fits-all approach. I am continuously researching treatments and perspectives from professionals in the counseling field, and utilize strategies from a holistic perspective, integrating mind, body and spirit for optimum health. If you feel ready to take the next step to a more fulfilling life, I would love to accompany you along that journey!

25 years of experience as a mental health therapist

In my 20 years of experience as a psychotherapist, I've found that when people seek help they're often at their most frustrated, sad, angry, or confused. We can feel lost, alone, and believe others can never really understand how tiring it is to act okay & always be strong when there is only pain & chaos going on inside of us. Maybe you are to the point where you just don't have the energy to do the things you want to do or even used to enjoy doing. You may be struggling with deep emotions or conflicts in your family, and no one else understands. Maybe the confusion and stress is so great that you don’t even know how to put it into words. Therapy is a safe place where you can learn more about who you are, and learn the skills to get you where you want to be in life. I have experience working with adults, adolescents, children, couples, and families struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, or significant life changes. My approach in therapy is meeting you where you are emotionally, and assisting you in setting & achieving your goals. We will work as a team, and use your strengths to develop more constructive thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. My treatment approach combines cognitive-behavioral, rational emotive, and motivational interviewing techniques, all geared toward assisting you in becoming the person you want to be. It takes courage to seek out help and work towards making changes. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you to make the changes you desire.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker whose goal is to help you find your best life possible. I have experience working with many types of issues including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, coping with health issues, divorce, abuse and specifically those victimized by narcissists, high-conflict individuals or antisocial personality disordered partners. Building rapport is fundamental to helping you to feel comfortable in disclosing your experiences, current-life situations, and problematic issues. It also is necessary to foster trust so that the change experience can take place. Counseling is a partnership in which you play a significant role in creating the change. Defining the problem, identifying your strengths, deciding on goals and then finding a pathway to those goals is what counseling is all about. Let's work on achieving those goals! Modalities may include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, and Psychotherapy. An integrated approach can be utilized as well. I am known for being caring, sensitive, empathetic and a good listener. Making a change starts with trust, experience, technique, and motivation. You can find them all here with me and begin to live your best life now.

How to find a therapist for counseling in New Harmony

Finding the best therapist close by in New Harmony can feel challenging, but know that once you narrow your search for a counselor serving your area, you can find a therapist in your city that is accepting new clients and fits your goals. Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services in New Harmony that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing with a therapist.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in New Harmony. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in New Harmony, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the New Harmony region and in the state of Indiana. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in New Harmony or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater New Harmony area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

When you're ready to start your search and find New Harmony therapists, have in mind what type of therapy you'd like your provider to be most experienced with and choose an experienced provider with a practice located near you in the city of New Harmony, elsewhere in Posey, or in the greater state of Indiana.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the New Harmony area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed New Harmony 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 New Harmony due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

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

While many psychologists in New Harmony 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. With a BetterHelp therapist throughout the state of Indiana you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a New Harmony 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.

New Harmony therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of New Harmony therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A New Harmony therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in IN, therapists may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 47631 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your New Harmony 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 New Harmony.

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 New Harmony 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 New Harmony 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 New Harmony, 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.

New Harmony has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. 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.
