What is the greatest thing about being human? We all have the ability to feel intense emotions! What is the worst part of being human? We have the ability to feel intense emotions!
At our best moments, we feel love, joy, peace, and harmony in our lives. We are our best selves. At our worst moments, we feel pain, loneliness, and depression.
It is hard to be our best in those moments. For me, being able to travel along in all those moments with another person is a gift. I have been working with children and families for 30 years who come to me at their worst moments, and I have had the pleasure of seeing them move from those bad moments to heal from them and find their path forward.
I have a Masters in Counseling from Indiana University and am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. Most of my work focuses on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, using a Trauma-Focused approach. I am an experienced Play Therapist with ages 2-12 and with CBT with adolescents. My primary goal is to accept everyone where they are when they first meet me and show them that therapy is about that person and their goals.
