My Approach to Helping

**Accepting new patients.** Two office Locations: Indy near the Fashion Mall and Downtown Anderson. In network with many insurance companies and will bill them directly if I am able to.
First, I would like to take a moment to applaud you for taking this difficult first step in the change process towards a better, more positive you. Finding the right person to help you make these positive changes can be challenging. I am here to be your change facilitator, your partner for becoming the person you want to be. If you’re looking to meet your potential, deal with a crisis, address relationship issues, mental health issues, addiction, depression, anxiety, self-esteem image issues and more- I can help. I believe in a client-centered approach.

This is where we work together to find a treatment that works best for you. You are the expert on you! An unconventional and modern approach to therapy. I offer therapy in unique & flexible ways: In office, Teletherapy (like Skype), meeting at a setting of your preference (for an additional fee) or combination of the above.

This gives you the flexibility of therapy on your terms, the choice of location, and your comfort level. I am happy to offer a free 10m in initial phone consultation.. I look forward to hearing from you and creating your own personalized therapy approach together. Let's help you achieve your best!
