I use a collaborative, psychodynamic approach that takes into account the complex factors that make each person’s experience unique including family history, personality style, coping mechanisms, relational patterns, and personal goals.
Are anxiety or feelings of emptiness keeping you disconnected from your own life? Do you feel stuck in unsatisfying patterns that are negatively affecting your well-being or relationships? These symptoms likely started as attempts towards solutions as you adapted to meet life’s challenges or overcome trauma. Except, these solutions are no longer working for you and might be making things worse, but it is not too late to change! You have made the first step by seeking out support in your path towards wellness.

I use an eclectic approach grounded in psychodynamic therapy to help clients gain insight and make meaningful, lasting change.
You're tired of merely surviving. Maybe anxiety has made your world small and lonely, or depression and feelings of worthlessness have kept you disconnected from yourself and your loved ones and have held you back from the life you want. Perhaps you've developed ways of engaging with others and with yourself that once protected you in difficult or traumatic circumstances; however, these patterns now result in pain that is becoming unbearable. Whatever suffering brings you here, you do not have to bear it alone. It is possible to thrive rather than just survive.

Incorporating a psychodynamic and psychoanalytic approach to therapy, my specialty is helping clients obtain the self knowledge they need to make informed and lasting changes.
Reaching out to talk to someone can be hard, but I believe it can also be fun. Asking hard questions together, I help clients build on strengths, manage complexity in their relationships, tap creative resources, and make meaning with art, philosophy, theology, dreams, and the special interests my clients bring.

My approach is psychodynamic , which means I am trained to work on a deep level with clients that are seeking lasting change.
*I AM NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME* For many people, this is a challenging time with unprecedented stressors. I offer a non-judgmental space for my clients to feel supported and understood, while gaining insight into patterns of behavior that no longer serve them. If you feel unhappy, frequently anxious, or alone, having a safe, confidential space to process and gain perspective can open up new possibilities. I work with people who want a deeper understanding of themselves, better relationships, and more freedom and power in their lives.

My approach is relational and psychodynamic (helping you find connections from the present to the past) and I utilize cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness/somatic, and trauma-focused strategies to help you with your goals and overall coping.
I have over 20 years experience and specialize in depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, and pregnancy/postpartum support and mood disorders. If you are concerned about certain life events, moods, or thoughts, counseling often helps to provide clarity, reassurance, and a way through. My goal is to work with you to find coping strategies, resolution, and increased well-being & peace of mind. I enjoy and have experience working with people from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds. I am an EMDR Therapist (EMDRIA trained). My office hours include evenings.

I bring compassion and curiosity to my clinical work as a psychodynamic therapist.
As a licensed psychotherapist, I work with adults (18+) and teens (13+) who are experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and interpersonal conflict. Where as therapy is a highly individualized process, my aim is to offer a reflective space where you may understand your experience, recognize influences, and explore ways in which you relate to yourself and others. My therapeutic approach is insight-oriented and relational, and my goal is to support your ability to identify your emotions and regulate emotional states, recognizing interpersonal and behavioral patterns, and developing more effective coping skills.

My specialty is helping clients notice old patterns that keep them stuck. Once we accept and understand our experience, then we can work towards change. Most people may not realize the root cause of their constant worry, panic or sadness, that's why I'm here to help so we can both discover what's holding you back from feeling healthy. CBT, mindfulness, EMDR and psychodynamic therapy are approaches that can help us become aware of areas that keep us stuck. Healing our hurts opens us to new ways of thinking and responding to life, inviting us to notice possibilities rather than limitations. Allow me to guide you through this process!

I work with clients who are ready for change and are eager to honestly examine their lives-- clients who are ready to explore issues which have generated disappointments, resentments, loneliness, pain, anger, or heartache. Life is hard, and at times we all need someone who will see us, hear us, and help us explore who we are and why we do the things we do. My approach is primarily psychodynamic and it is highly influenced by object relations and attachment theory. I believe our work is a collaborative effort. I provide a compassionate, engaging and respectful environment for clients.

Life can be difficult. At times, we are confronted with painful experiences we would rather avoid. And because we don't deal with the discomfort those situations bring, we keep ourselves stuck - still experiencing and enacting the pain we are trying to avoid. I see psychotherapy as a liberating journey through which we are able to transcend the emotional discomfort painful occurrences bring with them, while learning to relate to our life stories in such a way that they no longer keep us hostage. Through this process, psychological and spiritual growth occurs. Let me walk with you.

My therapy style is based in gaining insight, developing coping skills, and overcoming obstacles that create anxiety and depression. I work with clients to overcome trauma and develop empowerment for the future. In working with Bipolar Disorder, I find education and identifying triggers are paramount to managing symptoms. I will explore with you what has not worked in the past, and what will work going forward.

I enjoy working with clients who come to me in crisis with some awareness that their existing coping resources and skills have been overwhelmed to the point they need some help to grow through the situation. Though it typically begins concretely with stress and conflict management, this work often deepens into fruitful reexamination of personal values, family dynamics, problematic relationship patterns, and existential or spiritual themes. I see individual problems as often having been forged in the crucible of one's family of origin, which has often severely limited one's ability to respond well to all of life's demands.

ATTENTION PARENTS WHOSE CHILD IS STRUGGLING WITH DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, OR INTERPERSONAL ISSUES (AT SCHOOL OR AT HOME): You have a teenager who needs someone to talk to, but you aren’t sure who they will feel comfortable with. When your child shares their challenging experiences, you want someone who can RELATE. You’re looking for someone who has lived what your child is facing, and who MADE IT THROUGH. Someone who has a shared understanding of the struggles of being a teen, someone who can provide support and empathy, and someone who has already learned to manage and conquer what your adolescent is feeling.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Midtown, Indianapolis, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
