Announcement icon I've been doing TeleHealth since 2014. I'm not seeing anyone in person at this time. I use HIPPA compliant Simple Practice for sessions


As a therapist, I partner with the person I am working with so that we can collaboratively explore options that may fit your needs and bring you where you want to be, and how you want to be in your life. I am available for TeleHealth Sessions throughout Indiana. If you are wanting to tackle issues such as Addiction, Codependency, Trauma, Sexuality, Unmanageable Stress and Anxiety, Feeling Intimidated by a Life Transition ("What is next?") or Feeling Stuck and wanting to make Personal or Career Changes we may want to meet. I use Brainspotting & talk therapies as well as a variety of other treatment methods like CBT DBT.
I offer a non-judgmental, honest & empathetic approach. My big heart & years of experience and trainings come in very handy. It's hard to face challenges and cut through denial and justifications to get "unstuck." I have utmost respect for you and your work with me. Brainspotting is a powerful tool for trauma that underlies so may of our challenges.
Today, Covid, economic uncertainty, modern life, as we now know it, has experienced huge upheavals & people are feeling it acutely. There are so many new stresses in our lives...many people are stressed in ways they never were before. It makes sense. You don't have to figure it out on your own. You may give me a call to see if we are a good fit.
