About our counselors
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Social Work from Point Loma Nazarene University, and Master’s degree in Social Work from the Indiana University School of Social Work. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Counselor. I have over sixteen years of experience working in the field.
I think of therapy as a building block for healing and personal growth, and see it as a collaboration between therapist and client. Brene Brown states it best, “We don’t have to do it all alone. We were never meant to”. I hope to provide opportunities for clients to share their stories in an environment that is safe and non-judgmental so that the healing and growth process can begin. I work closely with each person in forming and reaching their own goals.
I enjoy working with both teenagers (11 and older) and adults. My experience includes working with individuals and families that are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, anger management, substance abuse, social skills, family of origin issues, grief and loss, self-esteem and body image issues, and relationship issues. My experience in the field include working in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings. I welcome adolescents ages 11 and older, adults, couples and families. I am in network with commercial Anthem BCBS and United Healthcare plans.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with fourteen years of direct experience. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Anderson University and a Master’s degree in Social Work from Indiana University. I have experience working with individuals, families, and groups in a variety of settings. I have extensive experience with child/adolescent care and adolescent issues. I enjoy serving adolescent and adult populations alike. I am committed to providing quality care to each individual client and take a collaborative, client-centered approach in doing so. I believe in the ability for individuals and families to find healing through their story and relief from mental anguish or emotional pain. I believe therapy provides a unique pathway for individuals and families to begin to explore their emotions, common patterns, influence of past experiences, and therapeutic goals for reaching a desired outcome. I am privileged to be a part of this process and look forward to meeting my client’s goals.
I work with individuals, couples and families in the following areas: depression, anxiety, trauma, social skills, adjustment concerns, ADHD, anger management, self-esteem, post-partum depression, personal growth and relationship issues. I see adults and children from the age of 8 years and older. I am in network with commercial Anthem BCBS plans, and United Healthcare.
LCSW, CYT 200hr
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with six years of practice experience. Both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees were earned at the Indiana University School of Social Work, where I currently am working on obtaining my PhD. My practice experience has allowed me to work with those struggling in the child welfare system, adolescent age groups, ADHD, anxiety, depression, family conflict, self-esteem, and trauma. I am comfortable in using a variety of treatment modalities to address whatever need a client may present with.
My continued schooling and research in clinical social work is focused on complex interpersonal trauma specifically, and the use of yoga as a healing intervention. I am also a certified yoga teacher (200hr) and believe yoga offers healing properties that can be useful in a therapy setting. I understand this treatment integration is not preferred for everyone, but I am happy to explore the benefits of yoga for those interested.
I believe building a trusting client-therapist relationship is a foundational part of healing. To achieve this, I ensure treatment and healing is client-centered, allowing me to meet the client where they are at in their healing process. I am most comfortable collaborating with adult individuals, adolescents (age 13+), couples, families, and those a part of the LGBTQIA+ community. I currently work part time and can only take self-pay clients.
