Helping Clients Thrive

Many couples and individuals experiencing disconnection in their relationships feel disoriented and isolated. I help my clients regain focus and a clear path forward by fostering a strong working relationship as the foundation for change. In session, you can experience powerful emotions, in a compassionate and safe environment, that give you clarity and hope on your journey towards connection and wellness. I am committed to using effective evidence-based treatments and a collaborative approach to help you reach your goals.

Why I Became a Counselor

Humans are relational beings and we desire to experience connection with one another. We learn how to relate to others through our relational experiences, thoughts about ourselves, and family and cultural experiences. Sometimes we learn and practice behaviors that promote disconnection. And when we experience disconnection, it produces tension, stress, and struggle. However, when we experience connection in relationships – when we are seen, heard, and valued – we develop purpose and meaning for our lives. I became a counselor because I want to help others experience connection and thrive.

Why I Started ThrivePointe Indiana

When I was first offered a position at ThrivePointe, I knew it would be worth the two hour drive every week from Indianapolis. The ThrivePointe culture is focused on empowering therapists to reach their potential and deliver the highest standard of care to their clients. This supportive, positive culture bleeds over into the work of ThrivePointe therapists, creating better results and a better experience for clients. Jodie, Stephanie, and I wanted to bring that experience to the greater Indianapolis area as well. We are committed to helping you achieve your goals by putting together a team of amazing therapists in Indiana who offer effective therapy through evidence-based practices.
