Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
Addison D. Ahrendts here! I am a passionate child, teen and young adult therapist in the Indianapolis area. I am DBT trained and am accepting clients! Reach out today for a FREE consultation.
ATTENTION PARENTS WHOSE CHILD IS STRUGGLING WITH DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, OR INTERPERSONAL ISSUES (AT SCHOOL OR AT HOME): You have a teenager who needs someone to talk to, but you aren’t sure who they will feel comfortable with. When your child shares their challenging experiences, you want someone who can RELATE. You’re looking for someone who has lived what your child is facing, and who MADE IT THROUGH. Someone who has a shared understanding of the struggles of school, someone who can provide support and empathy, and someone who has already learned to manage and conquer what your adolescent is feeling.
I specialize in helping adolescents navigate the challenges that come with life. Struggling with school, managing relationships with family, friends, and that first crush, and feelings never experienced before- all at the same time! Being a teen is tough, and I not only hold my MSW in Children, Youth & Families, but I too struggled with many of these issues.
I have always had a passion for serving youth. I was a high school teacher for 4 years, I partner with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and I was a counselor for Crisis Text Line. I have a spirit for helping this next generation of children be the best selves they can be. I am DBT trained and am ready to get started helping you become your best self, today!
