Licensed Clinical Social Worker (IN)
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Indiana. I have owned my own private practice in the Fort Wayne area for 10 years nows. And have been working on-line since 2017. Prior to my own private practice, I worked closely with a Child Psychologist in a family practice setting for almost 10 years. I think of myself as compassionate, accepting and solution focused. My clinical therapy is rooted mostly in Cognitive Behavioral Skills. I believe that how we think and perceive things drives how we feel and that drives how we behave. Learning new approaches to how we choose to view and perceive things allows us to adjust how we feel which adjusts how we behave!
I am also a mother with a special needs child, a wife, a friend, a middle aged women, a sister and a daughter to aging parents. I think my own pain, struggles and growing life skills make me human just like those that I seek to support. I believe I am laid back, down to earth, and extremely positively focused. I believe the best way to solve problems are to talk about them.
I see online therapy is the wave of the future and as a means of supporting those that can not or would not attend in-office thearapy. It's a fantastic way to use technology and works well for those with expert computer skills and those with minimal experience.
So feel free to investigate more, ask questions or just give it a try.
