I’ve helped individuals who’s struggled with behavior problems, grief, depression, anxiety and other life concerns. My therapeutic style tends to be eclectic in nature, but has foundations in Adlerian and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approaches. My goal is to help people become their best self by learning how their past effects their present and how to use tools in their present to improve their future.

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 enjoy working with a broad spectrum of clients and issues. I enjoy working with clients who challenge themselves, put in effort to help themselves, and who have the courage to look at and see themselves with honesty and curiosity. I continuously work to expand my tools, techniques, and modalities. Recognizing how trauma affects people in various ways, I use EMDR, DBT, IFS, yoga, and mindfulness. I believe that the mind, body, and spirit all impact each other, so work to incorporate elements of physical well-being for clients who are open to incorporating a more holistic approach to their mental health.

My goal is to create a comfortable environment where my clients feel heard and understood. I believe therapy is a place where people can let their guard down and express their authentic thoughts and feelings. By gaining self-awareness, clients can better understand their innate strengths and find ways to incorporate these positive traits into their daily living. I also believe by better understanding their values, individuals can connect with a deeper sense of meaning and purpose, which ultimately contributes to a more fulfilling life.

About 20 years ago I began working as an EAP and addictions counselor. I have followed various interests since. Work in health coaching and personal training during grad school was a blast and helped me appreciate the importance of holistic health. Seminary training gave me personal and professional insights into spirituality. Clinical and occupational expertise allows me to see the whole person in context of their education, career, and personal life. I have followed my passions with some ups and downs and hope to create a collaborative atmosphere, which leverages my insights to help others find, define, and refine their own.

I am a social worker who specializes in couples and sexual-related issues. I do a lot of work with couples around infidelity, trust and sexual issues. I spend much time helping couples overcome the aftermath of affairs and help lead them to a better relationship than they previously had. I also work with individuals with problems like depression, anxiety and loss. I do my sessions exclusively by video and phone and have done teletherapy for about five years. My style is very casual and thoughtful. And I have become very adept at doing teletherapy. I find that most of my clients prefer this format.

What type of Merrillville mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Merrillville?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
