Trauma can have a deep impact on the way an individual views themselves, others, and the world. People who have survived trauma can continue to carry the trauma with them by reliving it in their thoughts and dreams, by avoiding certain people, places, and things and experiencing disturbances in their sleep, mood, and startle response. While all of these symptoms can be overwhelming, you do not have to carry them with you for the rest of your life. There are various treatments that have been scientifically proven to positively impact client's lives and help them not just "get over" their trauma, but to overcome it

Through my training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy ( DBT ) and Eye-Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), I can help you both manage stress and distress, process through past wounds that might be holding you back, and work with you to develop a life worth living.
Do you struggle with managing your feelings or tolerating stress and frustration? Is it difficult to be present? Do you find it challenging to state your needs and wants to others in a clear way or compromise with others? Or, are you in the midst of a life transition and finding it more challenging than you thought?

My goal is to make you feel "complete"...so whatever that is, I'm here to help. I work to help you alter, improve, and uplift the challenges you may be facing. Helping you to manage depression, anxiety, behavioral challenges, family conflict, to name a few, is the key to a more positive outlook and a way to leave the past behind. Each person is unique, so each person has their own set of goals to be developed. Each person requires their own personal approach. I can help you by also assisting with connections that can go beyond therapy so that all of your stated needs are addressed.

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.

Trauma impacts us in ways we can’t imagine. It affects human development and rewires our brain. I remember seeing the impact trauma from childhood had for my adult clients. I remember seeing elementary school children and the impact trauma has on their ability to develop healthy relationships. Processing trauma isn’t something you need to do alone. I can still remember meeting with a teen girl and seeing her relief after processing her trauma and expressing how much better she felt. Working through trauma allows my clients to feel relief and feel a decrease in their daily triggers.

Although not exclusively, I use cognitive behavioral therapy (challenging what we are saying to ourselves), dialectical behavior therapy (accepting the need to be able to hold two contradictory truths in our minds simultaneously), and motivational enhancement (improvement of clients' motivation to change) in addressing clients' needs.
My therapeutic focus is on helping clients identify and take responsibility for addressing issues ranging from minor life adjustment problems to serious mental health conditions based in brain chemistry deficits. Licensed as a clinical social worker since 1993, I have worked in the behavioral health field since 1979 in a variety of mental health and addictions-focused settings, including inpatient/hospital, intensive outpatient, outpatient, and educational programs. I also have an LMHC and an LCAC. I consider it an honor to work with clients courageous enough to ask for and accept help in meeting life's challenges.

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.

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 provide strength-based counseling rooted in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
Sometimes life just gets to a point that we need an objective party to weigh-in, provide feedback, and to help identify patterns of coping that are no longer working for us. If you feel stuck you are not alone. I'm glad that you've gotten the courage to seek help! I have been working in the mental health field for over 10 years, and in that time I have solidified my passion for helping others identify and work on problem areas in their lives. I believe in providing a collaborative and non-judgmental space where we can explore barriers together that keep you from being the best version of yourself at this time.

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.

DBT and CBT) to individually help clients achieve their goals.
Effective counseling is all about connection. We seek to be understood, to be known, and to share life with someone else. Counseling provides a safe place to try out ways of connecting with another person, with ourselves, and with our world without fear of hurting others or our own reputation in the process. The majority of my clients come to me wanting to work on navigating life with differences of gender identity and sexuality; taking time to shared in a safe place is vitally important.

Dialectical (DBT) Therapists
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is the treatment most closely associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Therapists practice DBT in both individual and group sessions. The therapy combines elements of CBT to help with regulating emotion through distress tolerance and mindfulness. The goal of Dialectical Behavior Therapy is to alleviate the intense emotional pain associated with BPD. Its core assumption is that change and acceptance are intertwined. We typically think of our efforts to change things as emerging out of non-acceptance. We either decide to accept things as they are or we seek to change: through DBT it's not a case of change or acceptance, but resolving the conflicts to allow for self-acceptance and constructive change.

If you're looking for DBT therapy in Indianapolis or for an Indianapolis DBT therapist these professionals provide dialectical behavior therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy (which is a common misspelling) and dialectical therapy. They provide dialectical counseling, DBT counseling in Indianapolis and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
