A note to my patients--
I grew up in the south, Georgia and Texas, and as many of you know, I do not love the weather in Indiana! Warmer temperatures and being closer to the ocean are things I’ve been dreaming about for some time, and I am looking forward to that change. The hardest part of this, for me, is leaving my practice.
I have thoroughly enjoyed working with all of you over the past four years. I started a private practice, all by myself, with the hope that it would grow. And grow it has! I have had some of the best professional experiences with you all and feel very grateful for the time that we have shared. Though I am so excited for what is coming for my family and me, it is bittersweet leaving you.
I am married with three children, two dogs, and a frog. We have lived in Fishers since 2005, following the completion of my postdoctoral internship at the Hamilton Center in Terre Haute. I attended undergraduate at the University of Kentucky and swam there as well. I was originally pre-med, but fell in love with psychology in PSY 101 and really never looked back. I completed my Masters degree at Morehead State University in Morehead, Kentucky and my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Spalding University in Louisville, Kentucky.
I was involved in a group practice in Fishers for many years and then spent several years in Geriatric and Rehabilitative Psychology recently. I did fall in love with the elderly population but the intense focus on the financial bottom-line was really disheartening and counterproductive to therapy. Therefore, I am heading back to private practice and out on my own. I am looking forward to helping people based solely upon their needs and desires, without unwanted input from insurance companies.
For fun, I drive my kids carpools and go to all their sporting events! Actually, my husband and I love the beach and watching movies. I love our dogs, who are both rescues, and would probably have ten if it weren't for my husband's sense of reason. And if I've got some free time, I love a good book.
