We have a new look, a new website,
and a new office location!
Early in 2019, I moved my private practice from downtown Indianapolis to a new location just west of Indy in Plainfield, IN. A little bit country. A little bit city.
This restructuring process resulted in a less clinical, more personal framework that is heavily geared towards personal growth, relational health, spirituality, holistic healing, wellness training, and education —all in a convenient, confidential, and cozy, home-like setting.
Clients will find many of the same services I provided in my downtown office. Rest assured, my love for all things relational will continue to be reflected in the services provided at the new location. A more holistic approach will include attention to matters of the soul (mind, emotions, imaginations, conscience) spirituality, and education. (watch for online courses coming soon).
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, behavioral, and spiritual health and wholeness.
Enjoy traditional individual and marriage counseling plus a variety of services such as marital mediation, soul care, spiritual direction, and online educational courses.
Choosing someone to help you work through relational concerns can be an overwhelming process. Finding someone who understands the complexities of relational systems is a must. As a relationally-focused practitioner, my therapeutic experience and training are in marriage and family therapy. This means I see individuals, couples, and family members 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 non-medicalized, non-pathologizing 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. Special attention is directed towards developing healthy emotions, thinking patterns, imaginations, and calming overactive consciences.
“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.”
