Why I Started ThrivePointe Indiana

When I decided to pursue counseling as a second career I had no idea it would lead to being a business owner! But when Jodie Edwards and Stephanie Shell proposed a partnership to open ThrivePointe locations in Indiana, I knew I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with such amazing women. When we started, we were driven to cultivate a culture of pursuing excellence that is focused on empowering therapists to deliver the highest standard of care to their clients. Seeing lives transformed inspires me and the rest of the team to do our best work every day. We promise to keep improving and innovating, to stay focused on our clients and our mission, and to bring all our energy and passion to the work of providing the best counseling experience in Indiana.

Helping Therapists Thrive

Therapists thrive in an environment where they feel connected, are continually learning, and can see how much their clients are improving. My primary job at ThrivePointe is to cultivate this environment for team members. It’s a high priority for me that therapists feel supported and equipped to do great work. I help team members collect feedback from clients to identify areas of clinical growth and use deliberate practice methods to develop skills that are effective in helping clients improve. Coaching therapists to develop expertise and seeing clients’ lives being transformed as a result has been the greatest joy of my career!

How I Recharge

I’ve been learning indoor rowing techniques recently and the rowing stroke involves a power-generating phase—“the drive” (which is pushing with your legs and pulling the bar back)—and a resting phase—“the recovery” (when your body returns by sliding forward). The recovery phase is as important as the drive. If the recovery phase is practiced effectively the drive phase is even more powerful. Spending time connecting and playing with my family is my recovery sweet spot and they support and inspire me to go out and do great work. Going for a walk on the Monon Trail with my husband, eating a great meal with my parents and siblings, or running around with my nephews and niece are some of my favorite recovery practices.
