Because I am a person and not simply a counselor or therapist, I am well acquainted with the pain, loss, and challenges that life can bring. I also am familiar with the desire of wanting more or craving shifts & changes in my life and relationships even when it is hard to articulate exactly what I am seeking.
I consider it a privilege to come alongside my clients in these moments of their lives, recognizing that it is a sacred space into which they invite me.
I specialize in working with individuals & couples adults navigating many kinds of issues & problems. I know that you are more than your current struggle or "problem". Some of my current areas of focus that I work with frequently are with people who are wrestling with issues related to anxiety, grief, relationship, life transitions, & shame. I also have particular interest in working with couples who have a desire for deeper connection & intimacy. Working with women navigating changing roles, life transitions, parenting, & relationships are also specialties of mine.
Each of us carries such unique strengths, struggles, hopes, & desires that have such value & importance in their counseling journey. I seek to honor my
clients throughout the counseling process & see them and their journeys as having immense value.
One reason I chose the field of counseling is because I am familiar with the joys and challenges of being a mother, wife, woman & daughter and
the many other relationships of which I am a part. I also know the way authentic, trusting, safe relationships and spaces have been such a
powerful place of change, growth, and new insight in my own life. I bring both my personal journey and professional training into the work I do in a professional counseling context.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the State of Indiana (License #35002097A). I have a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Wheaton College (Wheaton, IL) and a Master of Arts in Marriage & Family Therapy from Christian Theological Seminary (Indianapolis, IN).
I love working with individuals & couples that find themselves in a place of wanting more, of wanting change, of wanting something to be different--even if it is hard to articulate. Since I place high value on the client-counselor relationship, it is important to me to create a safe & open space for my clients to move towards this sort of growth & newness. I want to help make sure it is a good fit for you. If I can answer any questions about my therapeutic style or process, please feel free to reach out to me.
