Hello! My name is Machaela, and I am incredibly excited to work with you!

I believe therapy should be restorative and promote wellness. It is not “one size fits all.” I recognize each individual has their own unique lived experience and I believe that you should be treated uniquely rather than engaging within cookie cutter therapy. I desire for our time together to be a safe space where you feel heard and understood as we sort through identified challenges within your life.

I believe we were not made to carry the burdens of life alone but to share in our time of need with the help from others. I’m here to come along side to support you as we work together to achieve desired progress and peace within your life.

Education, Training & Experience:

I attended Indiana Wesleyan University for my undergraduate course work majoring in Psychology and Addiction Studies. I continued my education with IWU where I obtained my master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have clinical experience within inpatient, outpatient, home-based, and private practice settings. I have worked with a variety of populations including children, teenagers, adults, couples, and families ranging from mild life adjustments to severe mental illness. I have been trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and will often implement Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing techniques within our sessions. Regardless of techniques, I will always listen empathetically from a nonjudgmental standpoint. I will never pretend I know you better than you know yourself and your needs. I applaud you for taking the next steps in your journey to healing and very much look forward to serving you!
