I enjoy assisting others who are struggling with past and or present trauma, feelings of depression , and or anxiety. I like to utilize a strengths-based perspective and problem-solve to solutions and options they can utilize in order to experience relief and even perhaps resolution from their struggles. I like to teach skills they can utilize in order to self-soothe and or calm themselves. Sometimes treatment modalities such as EMDR, Trauma-focused CBT, Sand Tray and or Play Therapy with children can be beneficial to help one look inside themselves and identify the source of their struggles and collaboratively we find an answer.

Over the years and after receiving thousands of initial calls and emails from clients, it is clear that many are unsure of what they need or where to go. We find great pleasure in helping clients navigate this process. As a group practice we are able to provide services for a variety of needs: anxiety, addictions, pain management, depression , relationship issues, psychological testing, individual, life transitions and even helping clients who just want to live their best life! We stand out in our efforts to make this process as smooth as possible. Many providers boast about their training in a particular treatment approach (and this is important) but research suggests that the interventions are only part of the story. The fit between client and clinician, the wellbeing of the clinician, the ease of access and the experience of the treatment process matter as much, and sometimes more, than the particular treatment model used. Pillars of Wellness was founded with the hope of ensuring an ideal client-clinician fit and providing both clients and clinicians with a positive experience. We let our clinicians excel at their craft by giving them the space to create their ideal practice.

I specialize in work with children and adolescents who are dealing with issues such as anxiety, depression , adjustment disorders, school challenges, and behavior problems.
I believe in the value of the therapeutic relationship and the progress that can be made in a safe and supportive setting. My work in the school setting over the past nine years offered an invaluable experience and helped me to understand the challenges and demands our youth face today. When social, educational, and family stress seem to be increasing, therapy can offer a safe haven in which they can build on their strengths and develop new effective coping skills. Together we can work toward a more healthy and joyful self.

I have nearly 10 years of experience in the treatment of men’s issues, depression , anxiety, adjustment, and emotional trauma.
There are many reasons people seek out counseling, but the underlying reasons are that we are looking for change, meaning, or healing. Whatever your individual needs may be, I commend you for taking the first steps in addressing your situation head-on. Each client is unique, and therefore, there is no one right approach that may work best for everyone. Because of this, I use a trauma-informed integrative style to give you, the client, space to be yourself in an empathic and non-judgmental environment.

I have worked with many types of disorders and situations including anxiety, depression , self-esteem, substance use, and trauma.
I think my ideal client has more to do with their attitude than it does their presenting problem. My ideal client is someone who is open to learning and wants to better themselves. Yet, I also love working with difficult clients, particularly males, who have never had an opportunity to talk about or express their feelings. I enjoy working with clients who get to explore and better understand themselves within therapy.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Merrillville. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
