Early in 2019, I moved my private practice from downtown Indianapolis to a new location just west of Indy in Plainfield, IN.
This restructuring process resulted in a less clinical, more personal framework that is heavily geared towards personal growth, relational health, marital reconciliation, and spirituality—all in a convenient, confidential, and cozy, home-like setting.
Clients will find many of the same services I provided in my downtown office. Still, with a greater emphasis on personal growth, conflict resolution, and harmony with self, others, and God. There will continue to be an emphasis on individual health and well-being. And clients can be assured that my love for marital reconciliation and healing is reflected in the new marital mediation program.
Clients will continue to enjoy the non-pathologizing, relationally focused services with which they are familiar but with an even greater emphasis on relational, emotional, and spiritual health and wholeness.
Enjoy traditional individual and marital counseling plus marital mediation, premarriage preparation, and spiritual direction programs.
When it comes to choosing a therapist there is a lot to consider, such as the type of therapist, their orientation to the therapeutic process, the location, the cost, and availability. As a relationally-focused psychotherapist, my background and training are in marriage and family therapy. This means I see individuals, couples, and family members who are seeking to improve the quality of their relationships, work through conflict, and find a deeper connection with others. In that sense, my practice is similar to many other practitioners.
What makes my practice different is a psychotherapeutic orientation based on family systems theory and a belief that relational, emotional, behavioral, and spiritual distress and pain are traumas to be healed not medical issues or disorders to be treated. In a safe and supportive environment, clients are encouraged to better understand the role intergenerational patterns play in their relationships and how growth in the individual members is the key to the growth of the marital and/or family unit.
“Never underestimate the change one person can bring to the family system. If you change one part of the system, you fundamentally change the entire system.”
