Therapy Works

As more and more research is conducted, one thing becomes increasingly clear: therapy works. Independent researchers continually find the benefits of psychotherapy not only endure but increase over time. Even more compelling is the finding that the indicators of emotional health for recipients of psychodynamic therapy equal and often exceed those of medication. To see the research for yourself, click here: The Efficacy of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.

Effective therapy actually alters the chemicals in your brain and rewires your neural pathways, transforming the way you process information about yourself and the world. In fact, therapy has even been shown to have a powerful impact on physical diseases. In one study, patients with metastatic breast cancer who received therapy lived an average of 18 months longer than those who did not. You can find out more about how therapy impacts the brain and body by clicking on the following link: Evidence Is In: Psychotherapy Changes the Brain.

Therapists & Specialists

Therapy: The basics.

At the beginning of treatment, it is recommended that you meet with your therapist weekly. Standard sessions are 50-minutes long. You may request longer sessions in advance if you plan ahead and schedule them with your therapist. To set something up, all you have to do is email or call us and determine a time that works for you and for your therapist. To learn more about our team and choose which therapist is best for you, please visit the Therapy Team page.

Therapy in a Nutshell

People don’t come to therapy because they have problems. Everyone has problems. People come to therapy because they feel stuck. Sometimes the same issues resurface over and over in different forms and we’re not sure why. Often we try to address these problems superficially without dealing with their roots, which is why they may continue despite our best efforts.

In therapy, problematic patterns are explored in depth in order to address the underlying causes and thus begin to change the driving forces beneath them. In other words, therapy goes beyond the symptoms and targets the actual disease. I use a unique combination of several research-proven theories, tailored to each individual, which together can help you transform depression, anxiety, and helplessness into freedom, strength, and wholeness.


Paula was regarded as one of the best therapists in Indianapolis for children and families and was highly sought after for her professional guidance. Having the pleasure of getting to know her personally as well as her dedication to her work, I can honestly say it was Indiana’s loss when she moved to California.

I have referred clients to Paula relating to divorce matters. She has always been extremely helpful in moving clients forward positively. She has great insights and can communicate well with people in crisis.

James Reed, Family Law Attorney, Bingham, Greenebaum Doll

I have been nothing but impressed by your responsiveness, your dedication to always doing what is in the best interest of our Veterans, your strong work-ethic, integrity and desire for constant improvement. Thanks for all you do on behalf of those who have put their lives on the line for our nation.

My brother is a Vet, 38 yr old, who has been struggling with addiction to opiates and meth as well as having a psychiatric disorder. In the past 2 years he has been in and out of detox, rehab, the Psychiatric unit and mostly on the streets. Her guidance on the phone has helped me to know when to reach out and when to let go. She has had my brother's back through a very difficult time for both his addiction and bipolar disorder. She is an asset to the VA and would be to any organization providing treatment for addiction and mental health.

Ms. Jones has expertise in providing effective treatment to those with acute and serious mental illness, who come from diverse cultural backgrounds, and fall within a wide range of socioeconomic strata. Despite the many challenges this patient population typically presents, Ms. Jones has always maintained a composed and professional approach to her work with the Veterans and staff alike. She is a dedicated, focused, professional who shows initiative (one of my personal favorite traits--someone who seems to know what to do without being told) and is an incredibly hard worker. Yet, despite her accomplishments and ability, she is a humble, warm, friendly and down-to-earth individual.

I have worked with many therapists in the past, but this is the first time I feel that I am making changes that are deep and lasting. Her counseling has truly helped me become free, even from things I wasn’t aware were affecting me. Brooke integrates many different approaches to provide balanced and effective therapy.

Brooke has really helped me to overcome the problems in my life that I was starting to believe couldn’t change. I now understand where my depression and anxiety came from and they are no longer a part of my life. I now feel a sense of peace and purpose.

Anonymous Client

I’ve recommended Brooke to so many of my friends and colleagues, I’m starting to feel like her personal cheerleader. But it can’t be helped. When I look back on the past year, without a doubt the most difficult year of my life, I can’t believe how far I’ve come.

Anonymous Client

Brooke has been an incredibly positive influence in my life. I first came to Brooke in the midst of a divorce from my high school sweetheart and best friend. With Brooke’s gentle guidance and supervision, I began the most intense period of personal growth in my life.
