Life can be hard. We can help.

Accepting New Clients with Telehealth in Indiana

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, M. & S. Counseling Services continues to offer therapy through our telehealth platform to protect the health of our therapist, clients, and community.  This allows  us  to continue  to provide  services to  existing  and  new  clients while honoring “social distancing.”  This is a very difficult time in our community, country, and globally.  We  are  happy  to  support  you  in  a  safe  and secure  manner.    


We will  slowly return  to  in-office sessions  per CDC and  state  recommendations over the next few months.

If You Answered Yes, We Can Help

  

  • We are a small group of independent, licensed clinicians with a wide variety of experience and expertise.  


  • We understand that life can be hard.  Once our clients identify their individual goals, we tailor a plan for treatment to teach you skills that you will use both during therapy and long after you have completed your treatment to help you maintain your progress.  


  •  Therapy  is  a safe  place  to learn new  skills, gain  insight,  practice  self-care,  and  to find purpose  and meaning in everyday  life .  It  is  also  a tool to empower change and to promote healing.      


  •  It’s  very  important that  our clients feel  supported,  understood, and  motivated by  the therapy process.

Our Philosophy

We  believe  that  every  person  can  make  changes  to  create  the life  they want.  It  is easy  for past  trauma,  relational  issues,  life  transitions,  substance use,  and daily stresses  to  keep us  from  feeling  balanced  and healthy .   


Our philosophy for therapy is to help you recognize your strengths, to improve your coping skills, and trust in your ability to overcome any challenges that you may face.
