One Step Forward Counseling is a Veteran Owned private practice. It was opened in 2018 to serve the Indianapolis and surrounding area’s Veterans and First Responders communities.
My mission is to reduce human suffering. I believe in a holistic approach to healing, which includes lifestyle changes. I do not believe in psychotropic medications as a first plan of action and prefer to go that route last. I encourage clients to make changes in sleep, hydration, diet, stress and exercise. I usually request clients get current bloodwork, to help rule out underlying health issues. I am a Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider (CMHIMP). I am also a Certified Brainspotting Therapist.
I tend to be laid back, casual and less structured in my approach, than some in the field. I use the same skills I teach clients and know I am also a work in progress. We are all equals in the therapy room and you can teach me as much as I teach you. I will also always be honest with you.
As an Army Veteran, I specialize in treating Veterans, EMS, Firefighters, Police Officers and their spouses. I understand the fears of losing your job for being depressed or anxious, your insurance reporting back to your job or not wanting to work with civilians. I have been working with the military, fire and police community since 2014. If you talk like an 11 Bravo, you're welcome here. Around 80% of the clients on my caseload are Veterans, First Responders or their spouses.
I was deployed in support of Operations Spartan Shield and Inherent Resolve. I spent time working with Soldiers in Kuwait, Iraq and Jordan. My Army career is where I learned how to truly treat trauma and depression to return people back to duty. My clients appreciate my direct but down to earth approach. I am trained by and was a trainer for Star Behavioral Health Providers, a program that teaches clinicians military competency.
