About Me

I have also earned a Master Addiction Counselor certification from National Association of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors and most recently, completed my training in EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) through EMDRIA (EMDR International Association).In its totality, these credentials say that I am a mental health and addictions specialist who can treat everything from a situational difficulty, a major mental illness, an addiction, a trauma, a relationship problem, or all of them combined.I am also an experienced forensic specialist with a history of being a death penalty mitigator, expert witness and treating those under probation supervision.I carry a full private practice and am a Regional Treating Clinician for the National Football League. My experience also includes being an adjunct instructor for the Indiana University School of Social Work, and numerous speaking engagements for mental health professionals, attorneys, probation officers, corporate employees and the general public. I am also a published author.I am an LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker) and a LCAC (Licensed Clinical Addictions Counselor). The MAC letters after my name stand for Master Addiction Counselor.Away from the office, I enjoy spending my time with family and friends, reading, going to the movies, and spoiling my dogs, cat and my husband Steve. We live on the far Northeast side of Indianapolis.
