I serve clients who struggle with long term emotional distress or who have crisis issues in their lives. Clients who are motivated to understand the conscious and unconscious forces and meanings that shape their experience and their relationships to significant others are specially suited to the kind of work I do. I work largely from the perspective of intersubjective psychoanalytic theory and object relations theory.
I encourage clients when possible and appropriate to participate both in individual and group therapy in my practice, as I believe this provides greater leverage for change and growth.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Indiana, a Certified Group Psychotherapist, and a National Certified Counselor. I am currently a member of the Indianapolis Center for Contemporary Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and the Director of Incircle Residency in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. I serve on the Board of Tri-State Group Psychotherapy Society, the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Group Psychotherapy and have published extensively in the areas of group dynamics, human development, and spirituality and counseling. I am an Associate of the A. K. Rice Institute and a Clinical Member of the American Group Psychotherapy Association. I received my PhD in religion and psychological studies from the University of Chicago in 1982.
