Sometimes life gets crazy--but that doesn't mean you are! You feel different, defeated, and depressed. No one understands you. You're overwhelmed and can't imagine how life will ever get any better, so why try? Yet here you are searching for an escape from the numbness creeping up on you. Maybe you are tired of faking your way through each day and want to experience authentic happiness. Let's embark on a journey to help you become who you want to be instead of merely enduring who you are. You can be confident, courageous, and content in life.
Making the decision to begin therapy is a healthy and courageous act that brings with it the potential for growth and healing. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I will work with you to provide confidential and caring services. I have a passion to help individuals, couples and families overcome challenges, grow in their relationships and find meaning and purpose in life. I feel it is important to "meet each client where they are" in their journey.
One of my first goals in therapy is to provide an atmosphere of privacy, safety and confidentiality. Have you ever felt overwhelmed, struggling with images of a traumatic event, never told someone about sexual abuse that still haunts you? Are you trying to get clean from alcohol and or drugs? Plagued by panic attacks or hopelessness? I would love to work with you so you can achieve your goals. I have a blended family of 7 children am a grandmother of 8 beautiful grandchildren. I love camping, hiking, fishing, gardening, puzzles and spending time with my cats.
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.
As a licensed clinical social worker, my role is to partner with you to navigate your experiences and challenges that are affecting you or your loved one's life at home, at work, or at school. In my practice I work with adolescents, adults, and families in a safe, comfortable setting. I have over ten years of clinical experience working with individuals and families who have experienced trauma, anxiety, life transitions, and loss.
I work with children, adolescents and adults who are open to exploring creative possibilities and increasing their self-awareness through engaging in the art making process. Common issues my clients are often experiencing include anger management, anxiety, attention issues, behavioral issues, depression, and emotional dysregulation. Many times these issues are related to trauma experiences and my clients want to address the trauma to be able to move forward in their life to be more productive, happier and developing lasting healthy and genuine relationships with other people.
I believe that every human is inherently good and worthy. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship difficulties, or major life transitions, I am here to help you rediscover the goodness inside of you. I work with women and couples to help them get to know the important parts of themselves and how those parts might be making it difficult for them to be their truest selves.
I am passionate about working with people who have anxiety disorders and OCD - in my experience they are clear how long they have suffered, they work hard in treatment, and, then, they get better. That, to me, is the point of treatment... to feel better and to start doing the things in life you value. Anxiety and OCD can make you feel horribly stuck in fears and upsetting thoughts, often having thoughts that leave you confused or terrified. My treatment specialty, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), aims to make thoughts less scary and to make things that feel impossible... easier.
Currently accepting new clients! Therapy takes bravery, so it's already a good sign that you are looking. If you need a change or want to start on a journey of self-discovery, the next step is to reach out to someone. I look forward to meeting you, learning about you, and helping you to work toward the future you desire.
One of my greatest passions is to see both individuals and families take one step further towards growth and healing. My counseling approach is rooted in compassion and a deep value for each person's worth. For those who are heartbroken, stuck, shame-filled, grief-stricken, numb, fearful, powerless, distrusting, insecure, lonely, paralyzed, depressed, worried, spiraling and disconnected, I offer counseling that not only meets you where you are but also invests in your next step.
Currently accepting new clients! Over the course of our lives, we experience life changes and unexpected events. Therapy is a place where one can process and adjust to these transitions and events. Through my education and experience, I have learned how to help clients work through these changes. Therapy will not only help one learn skills during this time of adjustment, but it will also help one learn how they can utilize these skills and strengths when they need them in the future.
Life isn’t always easy. Sometimes, even the strongest people amongst us need a little bit of help to work through some of life’s more challenging problems.

I’m an Indiana University trained therapist with experience affirming the awesomeness of young adults, LGBTQ+ community and folks with complex trauma that can benefit from EMDR.

Working with pre-teens, teens and young adults is an area I enjoy. I work from a person-centered approach to therapy, integrating other approaches such as CBT, DBT, trauma-informed care and mindfulness. I seek to help clients become their best selves through client-centered care that includes psychoeducation, empathy, self-compassion, learning new coping skills and managing thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
