Owner, Mental Health Therapist

I went to school to learn how to be the “perfect” parent. I double-mastered in early childhood education and family psychotherapy. I spent 8 years studying and working in the most diverse and varied socio-economic part of the country. I worked in classrooms and became a licensed therapist. I dedicated the first decade of my career providing therapeutic and educational support in the community.

Mental Health Therapist

I’m an Indiana native, who graduated from Lawrence North High School and Indiana University Bloomington (go Hoosiers!). After graduating from IU with a degree in Psychology, I obtained my Master’s degree in Social Work. While obtaining this degree, I also had the opportunity of completing my fellowship in Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental & Related Disabilities [LEND] at the Riley Child…

Occupational Therapist

Having a sibling with a disability, I grew up in the waiting room of therapy offices, listening and learning strategies and games used in therapy. When I saw the benefits after copying these same techniques at home, my passion and belief in utilizing therapy to help families thrive was born. Witnessing therapy from a family perspective inspired me to become an occupational therapist.

Speech Language Therapist

As my junior year of high school began, I was stressed about college applications and wondering what career path I should choose. I had always enjoyed working with children, having spent summers babysitting and working as a camp counselor, but I wasn’t sure how to incorporate those into a career.

What does it mean to you to understand and to be understood? Positive experiences and relationships are built on our ability to effectively express ourselves, understand the expressions of others, and connect in meaningful ways with life and those we share it with.

Administrative Assistant

I taught 5th grade at St Joan of Arc for four years and then as a 3rd grade teacher and elementary Math specialist for five years at The Orchard School. Upon the birth of our middle of three children, Paige, I was thrust into a new world of medical needs, therapies, advocating, and a desire to learn more about health and wellness. Paige was born with Down syndrome. I believe in her wholeheartedly, just as I did my students when I was teaching. With the right supports in place, any child, any person can be successful. I am happy to be a part of Mini Minds working to serve families in finding supports to aid in their growth.

Office Manager

I began my career as a Medical Assistant, but the longer I spent in the field the more I developed a passion for working with medical billing! For 15 years, I have worked in a few different medical offices ranging from family chiropractors to geriatric specialists. I am very excited to now find myself at Mini Minds… where insurance policy numbers and diagnosis codes are matched with tiny smiles and huge hearts! Whenever I need a break from the computer, I relax on a couch in our gym area watching everyone play and learn together. I have raised three children of my own and I am now blessed with three grandchildren, so I am no stranger to the ruckus and romping around we see here! Next to my children and grandchildren, my greatest accomplishment is founding a non-profit called Dotted Line Divas. We are a personal care/ hygiene pantry that uses extreme couponing to purchase items for our families!

Mental Health Graduate Intern

As long as I can remember I have always wanted to be in a career field where I can help others. It wasn’t until I went into my sophomore year at Indiana University (go Hoosiers!) that I knew psychology was the route for me, therefore lead me to studying clinical mental health counseling in graduate school at Marian University. I was/still am the friend that everyone comes to when they need to be heard or given support. So, when I decided to be a mental health therapist it wasn’t much of a surprise to everyone!

Mental Health Graduate Intern

I like to think of myself as a professional helper! For as long as I can remember I have always been the kind of person who others come to for help, advice, or just for a listening ear. It’s not a surprise to me that I ended up in this profession as social workers essentially are professional helpers.
