Hi there, I'm Lilian. Do you feel overwhelmed by the multiple roles you juggle? Are you beating yourself up about not making time for the important people in your life or exhausted trying to do so? I want to empower people to manage anxiety and change the negative thought trains that are often barriers to battling depression. By working together, we can tackle problems, take small steps to achieve goals & celebrate the positive results! We'll use a strengths-based perspective, putting you in charge of this journey. I especially enjoy working with young adults or anyone going through life transitions & walking along with those dealing with the grief/loss of someone or a pet. Whether you're overwhelmed, experiencing relationship conflicts, or cycles of anxiety and depression, I'm ready to help. It's a brave first step to seek therapy and the changes you make will be worth it! I will treat you with respect & show compassion in combination with truth, and use evidence-based techniques so you can overcome the barriers that have kept you from moving forward in your life. I look forward to meeting you & working with you!

Your story matters. Your life has value. You are worth it. Seeking help through life's difficulties can be daunting. It can, at times, also be met with some disapproval by others who don't understand the position that you are in or the struggles you face. I want to acknowledge your bravery in taking this step to prioritize your mental health. It isn't easy, but I can assure you it will be worth it. A little about me: I am passionate about helping others seek out health and wholeness in their lives. I currently practice as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Indiana. In my 8 years of clinical experience, I have worked in multiple settings (community based mental health, in-home therapy for adults and children, outpatient adult & pediatric therapy) and have experience with a variety of mental health concerns. These include: depression, anxiety, eating disorders, ADHD, ASD, substance abuse, trauma, and more. I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story!

Do you struggle with feeling like the weight of the world is on your shoulders? Do you struggle with finding personal and work-life balance? Do you find it hard to cope with current life stressors and situations? Do you struggle with the pain of your past life experiences presenting itself in your day to day? Can you imagine a place where you are free to be yourself, a place where you can share your thoughts and feelings and be open without the fear of judgment? Being seen, heard and understood is important and necessary to taking the steps on the journey to a healthier you. Hello, I am Felicia and as a therapist, I endeavor to create a space to allow self-awareness, true healing and personal growth to happen. We all have different life experiences and sometimes figuring out how to deal and cope with those experiences is challenging and requires a little help. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, grief, chronic stress, trauma, struggling with relationships or a life transition, change is possible. Through our work together I want to help you meet your goals as you take this journey to feel better. I'll meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome hurdles in your life. I view therapy as a safe space for processing life experiences, emotions, thoughts, and trauma to achieve one’s goals and necessary growth. My goal as a therapist is to collaborate with you to understand your thought processes, address barriers to wellness, and identify ways in which you can achieve your goals. I believe that clients are the experts of their own lives; however, sometimes need an outside perspective to help re-frame our thinking. Asking for help isn't easy and you are not alone! We all need support at times and I would be honored to be that support for you! Thanks again for taking the first step on this journey to a healthier you.

Hi there, I'm Farah Ali. I am a licensed clinical social worker, psychotherapist, and dedicated advocate for my clients. My educational foundation is based in psychology and social justice, having earned my master's degree in social work with a dual concentration in community practice and clinical mental health. Driven by a strong commitment to human rights and social justice, I am dedicated to advocating for every individual I work with and the communities I am part of. My Core Principles as a Therapist: Focusing on Strengths & Empowerment: Central to our work is helping you to more deeply connect to—and really use—your inherent strengths. This means looking for growth opportunities where some might find roadblocks and accessing both internal and external resources to help you make the changes you want to see in your life. Working for Comprehensive Wellness: Therapy is a place where we can work toward mental and emotional wellness, learn how to foster positive relationships, and discover a greater sense of balance and ease in your day-to-day life. Promoting Connection & Authenticity: The relationship we have is vital, which is why I work hard to make sure our relationship is a nurturing space for meaningful growth. Creating Safety in Being Seen: I strive to make our sessions a place where every emotion is valued, encouraged, and supported—yes, even the “bad” or “undesirable” emotions. This is the space we cultivate together in our work, and space that is here to help you more deeply see yourself, and be seen in your authenticity.

Hello, I'm Melissa. Are you looking for a therapist who understands the challenges of raising a family in today's fast paced and stressful world? Do you find it difficult to feel comfortable talking to others about your real feelings because you don't want to be that vulnerable to anyone else? I help individuals struggling with life balance and stress management. I have experience providing individual therapy to clients struggling with current life stressors due to past traumas. These past traumas can hold one back from moving forward in life and finding happiness. I have experience working with diverse client populations. I have worked with children and adolescents in the Dept. of Child Services system, provided behavior support to individuals with developmental disabilities and have worked inpatient with children with dual diagnoses. I am also a single mother of two amazing children and understand on a personal level the stress of raising children, managing the house and maintaining a career. I enjoy listening to others and helping them find the strengths they did not know they had. Life can be tough at times but having someone to talk through problems with can make the difficult times easier.
