I am a licensed counselor with 15 years experience who enjoys a holistic approach to therapy, including addressing physical and mental health simultaneously through running therapy.

I have over a decade worth of endurance racing experience, finishing an Ironman triathlon, 50K, 13 marathons in 13 states, multiple half marathons, and shorter distance races. She is a running coach through the Road Runners of America and a licensed mental health therapist. I believe that exercise can be a great coping mechanism for dealing with a multitude of issues, including anxiety, depression, and ADHD. Running and walking side by side can help many people feel more comfortable about opening up in therapy. Additionally, therapy sessions that take place in nature can have the added benefit of improving mental health.

What to expect: An intake will be completed virtually. Sequential sessions will be offered in-person at a local Indianapolis park, running and/or walking. Running with me will be at a conversational pace. The point is not to push hard, but to practice coping skills while we are discussing any concerns you may have. We can stop running or walking any time for any reason and can slow down when you may feel we are going too fast. By slowing down, we allow time to process information and can practice running with mindfulness. Therapy sessions are offered at 30, 45, and 55-minute sessions and can be completed virtually or in-person.
