11 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Indiana. I received a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Purdue University and a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Christian Theological Seminary. I have had the opportunity to work in and gain knowledge from a diverse collection of settings that include elementary, middle and high school, hospital chaplaincy department, private practice and private agency working with families in the child welfare system. Each of these settings have provided me with hands on experience working with individuals and families in crisis, as well as those who are faced with navigating some of life’s challenges such as divorce, loss, and addiction. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I love a systems approach, understanding that we do not exist in a vacuum, but rather are part of larger systems. I take a non-judgmental, warm approach to therapy and I believe in tailoring my therapy towards my clients individual needs. Together we will establish goals and design a path towards a healthier way of being. I draw from a multitude of therapeutic techniques that include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solutions Focused Therapy. The first step towards seeking help is often the most difficult. I am excited that you are here and look forward to taking this journey along side you.

Hi! Thank you for taking the time to read a bit about me! Finding a good fit in a counselor, to share your ups and downs with, is an essential component of feeling positive about your counseling experience. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois with over 25 years of experience. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Michigan and a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work from Michigan State University. I have extensive experience working with clients, experiencing a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting struggles and challenging life transitions. I also have experience working with people in areas of motivation, decision making, career changes and professional development and leadership. My counseling style is collaborative, direct and compassionate. I enjoy working with people, to provide a comfortable and safe space to talk, so that you can be authentic, feel heard, overcome challenges and discover your strengths. In my experience, the openness and trust built between counselor and client is the key to feeling like you can fully be yourself and share openly, without fear of judgement or negative impact on your personal relationships. I see the counselor/client relationship as a team, in which honest communication builds confidence and empowers you, to face difficult circumstances or feelings. There are no two people exactly alike. I believe everyone is unique, valuable and amazing, just by being you! Because of that, there is no “one size fits all” type of therapy. I apply an integrative therapy approach, utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) , Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Solution Focused Therapy to help clients work through their current rough spots. I am also well versed in other therapeutic styles and I am flexible to work together to meet your unique qualities and personality. Your preferred pace, comfort level and feed back will be respected. That is the best part about therapy. It is all about you! It’s a place where you can talk about you, your thoughts, your feelings, your fears, your accomplishments and whatever comes to mind and know that you will be listened to with respect and sensitivity. It takes courage to face tough things in life and to ask for help. Starting counseling can be a big leap into the unknown. I hope that you will give yourself a chance to experience the support and positive growth that you can gain from counseling. I would be honored to work together, as you take the next step!

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Wheatland 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.

Wheatland therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs.

A Wheatland 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.

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

Before seeing your Wheatland 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 Wheatland.

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 Wheatland 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 Wheatland 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 Wheatland, 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.

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.
