You have decided to look for a guide through unfamiliar territory, whether it is a new problem or an old nagging issue. I can help you by providing a safe place to take that difficult look at old patterns that no longer work. Becoming mindful of your thoughts, feelings, and judgments can free you to creatively re-imagine yourself and your situation and find new solutions. My thoughtful and intuitive approach can guide you on this journey.

I enjoy assisting others who are struggling with past and or present trauma, feelings of depression, and or anxiety. I like to utilize a strengths-based perspective and problem-solve to solutions and options they can utilize in order to experience relief and even perhaps resolution from their struggles. I like to teach skills they can utilize in order to self-soothe and or calm themselves. Sometimes treatment modalities such as EMDR, Trauma-focused CBT, Sand Tray and or Play Therapy with children can be beneficial to help one look inside themselves and identify the source of their struggles and collaboratively we find an answer.

My focus is to empower families by improving their relationships and communication so family members are more of a support than a burden to each other. Family issues that I commonly treat are couple's communication, sexual issues in a relationship, mixed-agenda couples (where one is considering a divorce), co-parenting after a divorce, behavior issues with children, as well as abuse or neglect in families. I also help families where a member struggles with self-injury, depression, or anxiety.

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 believe that creating a calm, comfortable, and open atmosphere for counseling can allow clients to let their guard down and feel as comfortable with the therapeutic process as possible. My goal is to empower clients to help themselves realize their true self, work on building on their strengths, process and learn from past experiences, and make both positive and pro-active adjustments moving forward.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Merrillville, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.
