You want something to change, but don't know where to start. Maybe it's how you feel: Sometimes your thoughts, feelings, emotions, stories, and sensations try to get in the way of moving toward what's meaningful to you. Maybe it's how your relationship feels: Sometimes the communication patterns between the two of you can erode trust and commitment, leaving your relationship bond damaged or broken. Maybe you're haunted by your past: Like broken glass, many traumatic memories can be fragmented and jagged, stored in your mind and body, emotionally wounding you over and over again, until you're left dejected and exhausted. We're wounded in relationships... and we're healed in relationships. Let me help. Here's what I believe: Things can be different. You can effect change in your life, on the inside and on the outside. You can feel better and get better. You can move toward what's meaningful to you. Here's How I Can Help: Internal "Stuff": The thoughts, feelings, emotions, stories, and sensations that try to prevent movement toward what's meaningful to you. External "Stuff": The conflict that lives in the space between committed people that erodes trust and commitment, preventing movement toward the bond. Traumatic Memories: Fragments of emotional intensity trapped in the mind and body, triggering cascades of turbulence that interfere with daily living. I'm a therapist and clinical counselor based in Westfield, IN, and I'm about helping you move toward what's meaningful to you, when your thoughts and feelings try to get in the way. Know this: I want this to work as much as you do, and I will never judge you.

You do not have to continue being unhappy. I work collaboratively with clients to help them identify their needs, strengths, and goals. I take a client centered approach and have experience in multiple treatment modalities that I tailor to fit each client’s expressed goals. Whether a client has a specific issue they know they want to address like depression or post traumatic stress, or they want help exploring why they do the things they do, or they’re dealing with career and life challenges, I look forward to building relationships that expand life skills and move toward solutions. Our daily lives can be very difficult at times. You don’t have to go it alone. Take a therapist on the journey with you.

I am a licensed clinical social worker. I have been providing therapeutic services over the past 7 years. I have worked with clients on a variety of mental health and life struggles such as: depression, anxiety, grief and loss, relationship issues, parenting issues, and trying to figure out what comes next in life. In addition, I have worked with many teens and adults on their LGBQTAI+ journey of finding, accepting, and loving themselves. I always want my clients to feel welcome and accepted when working with me. I want clients to feel comfortable because oftentimes they are sharing very personal information and I always want to be respectful of that. I tailor the therapeutic approach that I use based on the needs of the individual client. Therapy is not a one size fits all and I don't believe in getting stuck in one certain therapy type. Some approaches that I draw from are cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, client focused therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy. No matter what approach I may use, I always look at my clients with a strengths perspective framework.

24 years of experience

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.

It may not feel like it yet, but even through taking these steps, you are making progress! Steady progress is what I work with individuals to achieve through several treatment methods. The approaches that we use may be different for each person, but my hope for each client is that they reach three things: a sense of understanding, a route to self-acceptance/inner peace, and productivity toward reaching their deepest desires. I am a licensed mental health therapist in Kentucky and Indiana. I was born and raised in a city-setting (Louisville, KY), but spent time learning and working in a rural community as a graduate of Western Kentucky University. My counseling style is nurturing but practical. My hope is that with the end of each session, you will feel understood and motivated, and will have a plan of action to work toward your goals. Some of my favorite treatment modalities include solution-focused, narrative, CBT, DBT, and motivational interviewing. I have an open door to all races, religions, ideologies, and sexual-orientations. My specialties include substance abuse treatment, anxiety, stress, anger management, relationship issues, race/discrimination-related issues, life changes, and parenting issues. When I am not working in the role of therapist, I covet time spent with my husband and four kiddos. If you are ready to move forward toward better understanding yourself, your issues, and your solutions, lets get started! Don't wait another day to start working toward the way of life that you deserve.

After 27 years of working in the mental health field, in 3 different countries, I have an appreciation for the fact that life rarely goes according to plan. Perhaps you’re struggling with feeling anxious, depressed, misunderstood, or unfulfilled with some part of your life, or you find yourself longing for deeper, more meaningful relationships. Maybe you’ve lived through traumatic events, whether recent or long past, that have changed you in ways you don’t understand, caused you to react unpredictably, or even made you feel like a stranger to yourself and you’re struggling to cope. Although the idea of making changes can seem overwhelming and scary, sometimes the best way out is through, and you don’t have to face the journey alone. As a therapist, I believe in meeting you where you’re at without judgment; I will walk alongside you with compassion and empathy, and I will help you figure out your own unique way forward. I am trained in a variety of therapeutic models and practices, and I am willing to use whatever tools and methods work best to help you. I practice primarily from a Gestalt model, where you are the expert on yourself, and I am here to help guide you on your journey of self-exploration and healing. Gestalt work often incorporates evidence-based approaches, such as mindfulness and movement, Polyvagal work, guided imagery, co-regulation – all to bring about a sense of safety and build trust together, so you can tell your truth without feeling shamed, judged or revictimized. As we work together, I hope to help relieve feelings of discomfort and identify patterns that aren’t working for you. It is important to me that my clients feel safe and respected as whole people with unique perspectives and diverse backgrounds. I am honored every time a client trusts me with the truth of their lived experience. I am open to looking at things through your eyes and I strive to be respectful and welcoming of whatever makes you uniquely yourself (incl. gender, LGBTQIA+, family/country of origin, race, religion, neurodivergence, intergenerational trauma, etc.). My clinical personality is warm, thoughtful, empathetic, careful, and I value going at your own pace. I think it’s important not to make assumptions about my clients - I like taking the time to listen your unique themes and imagery, and I enjoy learning your patterns and hearing your stories, all of which helps me to better understand who you are, where you’ve been, and what you’re hoping to accomplish. I also believe there is no “one true way” – there are as many pathways to healing and wholeness as there are people walking them. My hope is that after working together, you will feel like you are able to be more comfortable in your own skin and you will be better able to make genuine connections with the environment that you are in, and with the people who matter most to you. The first step is often the most difficult, and the process of beginning therapy with a new person can seem daunting. The fact that you’re here, reading this, means you’ve already found the courage to take that first step. I would be honored to walk with you on the next part of your journey, and regardless of what you choose to do next, remember that you are already Unbroken. Please feel free to contact me for an initial 15-minute phone or telehealth session (at no charge) to discuss whether we might be a good fit/next steps. I look forward to hearing from you and wish you the best!

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 Rising Sun, 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. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Rising Sun or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Rising Sun 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 Rising Sun 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 Rising Sun 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 BetterHelp or clinicians 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).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Rising Sun, Indiana working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. 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. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Rising Sun above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Rising Sun helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Rising Sun therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Rising Sun therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a 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.

A psychologist 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 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 Rising Sun 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 lot of people in IN, providers 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 47040 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Rising Sun 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

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. A Rising Sun 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 Rising Sun, 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.

Rising Sun 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?

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.
