Choosing a counselor can often be a difficult decision. There are many different personality styles and treatment modalities to consider. The therapeutic relationship has a significant importance, and I want potential clients to have some background knowledge on me when they are contemplating choosing me as their therapist. Therefore, I wanted to take this opportunity to share a little more information about myself to help guide you in your decision making process.
I grew up on the Southside of Indianapolis and attended Roncalli High School. I then attended Indiana University Purdue University at Indianapolis where I earned a Bachelor degree in Education and a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. I have worked in both education and clinical settings which has prepared me well for working with individuals of all ages. I was trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) therapy 3 years ago, and love to incorporate this into sessions as needed.
My husband and I have been married for the last 17 years and reside in Greenwood Indiana, which is why I wanted my practice to also be located in Greenwood. I look forward to supporting the amazing members of this community. My husband is a firefighter at WRTFD and a RN at St. Francis Hospital. We have three amazing children who attend Center Grove schools. They keep our hearts full and our lives as busy as can be! So, we absolutely understand all of the stress that accompanies busy working families.
We also have two adorable fur babies. Milo is our newest addition and is a curly haired Bichpoo puppy. He will soon attend puppy training so he can come to work with me to serve as an emotional support animal during sessions for those that would like it. Stay tuned for more updates!
