I strive to provide individualized approaches to fit each unique person by using DBT informed care, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and EMDR.
Finding a therapist that is right for you can feel like an overwhelming task.

I specialize in harm reduction which means I use a person-centered, collaborative approach to help you remove barriers for living by your highest values. This approach focuses on reducing harms caused by substance use or other coping mechanisms. Mental health and substance use recovery is possible and is unique to your values, not to a societal standard of what recovery means.

People seek psychotherapy for different reasons. Sometimes they want to solve a specific problem produced by difficult circumstances; sometimes they want relief from feelings of general unhappiness and anxiety; other times they want to make a change, to feel less stuck, less depressed and more hopeful. Asking for help is the first important step. It gives substance to our desire for change and makes concrete our wish to feel better. This very act of asking says that we feel entitled to support and serious consideration.

My theoretical framework comes from integrating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness, self compassion, and shame reduction into what the client says is working for them.
I believe wellness has different definitions and paths for each person, and I love being a part of my clients' journey in creating, adjusting, and respecting that picture. My concept of quality therapy includes discovery, personally defined healing, creating new connections, and finding ways to take self-compassionate action. I enjoy art, media, and literature and integrate this into my work whenever possible. Clients and colleagues have described me as calm, compassionate, curious, and a bit nerdy. I embrace these identities in my role and enjoy working with a variety of communities and identies.

I offer CBT, DBT, TIC, and ACT as modalities used as interventions.
As your therapist, we will process anxiety, depression, past traumas, reroute negative behaviors, & learn how lived experiences impact the way you view the world currently. My clients often seek therapy because they are wanting to uncover the meanings behind their emotions; together, we are often able to uncover the meaning behind these emotions by better understanding past traumas encountered. Only then, can we replace negative behaviors that have stemmed from these traumas, together. I provide a safe & genuine space for LGBTQ clients & practice from an inclusive & client-centered perspective.

I have expertise in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ) and am passionate about helping my clients live rich, full, and meaningful lives.
What if your own worst thoughts weren't the enemy? What if nothing needs to be removed? My ideal client is someone who is working through some of the hardest phases of their life, someone who might be: going through a faith transition - receiving a new diagnosis - losing a job - suffering due to trauma - parenting a child with a disability - managing increasing anxiety or depression. I want to help increase the amount of space you have to live in. Often when our worlds crumble apart, it feels like we are confined to these small, unlivable corners. My goal is to help expand those spaces so you can move towards what matters.

Focusing on compassion, I am informed by evidence-based treatments such as CBT, ACT , DBT, Mindfulness techniques and Attachment Theory so that I am able to create and navigate trauma-informed interventions to respond to your particular needs.
When faced with challenges and struggling with how to manage them, it can be helpful to come to therapy to sort through the complexities that are in each of our lives. Whether struggling with mood management, behaviors you don't want to engage in anymore, or just feeling too alone and overwhelmed with modern demands, therapy can be a place to learn to separate patterns that are helpful from those that aren’t and to be able to have support to face challenges that enable us to grow into the people and values that matter the most to us.

Life often hands us challenges we do not feel capable of managing. Our thoughts, anxieties, and expectations can be obstacles to living the life we want to lead. Therapy can be difficult, and it can be a safe, kind place to face pain and anxiety, a place to align our lives to our values. The freedom that comes from facing our own thoughts and feelings is worth the effort. I cultivate an environment of trust and compassion to face and overcome life's challenges through CBT, ACT , and relational therapies. I am certified to provide Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) by the Cognitive Behavior Institute (CBI).

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviors to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Indianapolis or for an Indianapolis ACT therapist these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counselors.
