Let's Connect (812) 414-5287
I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families coping with mood disorders, trauma/abuse histories, anxiety, self-esteem/identity issues, grief/loss, relationship problems, or general change and emotional flexibility concerns. I thrive in work with all types of individuals, but especially with those often ‘othered’ by society, such as people with multiple mental health comorbidities, those living with HIV, members of the LGBTQA community, the neurodivergent, people with disabilities, etc. I advocate for self-acceptance and the deconstruction of shame, and additionally enjoy work with non-binary/transgender populations.
I am a licensed MFT in Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky and practice from a family systems perspective. I utilize a trauma-Informed approach to care and employ a harm reduction perspective with regards to behavioral change. I most often utilize CBT, ACT, EFT, Interpersonal, and Narrative Therapies, as well as Mindfulness-Based, SFBT, and SFT techniques.
I value an authentic, client-centered approach to therapy, and I believe that true therapeutic progress is best achieved when a provider joins with a client from a position of unconditional positive regard and acceptance. I strive to meet clients “where they are at” without judgement, to gain client trust and to work as a team to achieve desired change.
