Leveraging an understanding of both family systems and cognitive behavioral approaches to therapy, I seek to find the best way to connect with clients. The work of Gottman and Allendar are foundations for marrige counseling in my practice.
I became a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate (LMHCA) after completing a Master of Arts in Counseling in 2004 at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, TN. I pursued additional coursework and training through Indiana Wesleyan to pursue licensure in the state of Indiana in 2013. Prior to private practice, additional experience was gained in a college counseling center, a private mental health clinic, and the St. Vincent stress center with children and adolescents.
I am trained in EMDR. This therapy founds its base in PTSD but, research has been expanded to show its efficacy in almost every are of counseling. It is particularly useful in getting to the root of the issue and in med resistant diagnoses.
