Sometimes life can present struggles for all of us. While problems can seem overwhelming at times, hardships can also result in healthy, positive growth if handled with courage and wisdom. Our goal is to help you manage life’s difficulties in the best way possible. Reaching out for help can feel daunting, so we strive to provide a welcoming, safe environment where you can let your guard down and feel accepted. At life’s crossroads, a warm, compassionate therapeutic relationship can make all the difference in finding the direction you are seeking.
While all of the clinicians at CPD work with adults, many of us have specialties in working with children and adolescents. Several of use specialize in playtherapy for young children and we incorporate parent training when needed. We find that children and teens can benefit from a guiding hand at important developmental phases to help turn the corner in a positive direction.

Dr. Natasha Anderson“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind,” by Dr. Seuss. This quote speaks to some of my thoughts about therapy and personal growth. I feel treatment is about helping an individual embrace and accept who they are, in order to be the best version of themselves possible. Dr. Anderson operates out of both the Muncie office and our Noblesville location, conveniently located in downtown Noblesville.
Ann Robinson, LMHCIn my therapeutic work, I strive to empower my clients, thereby enabling them to recognize their choices, and thus their responsibility/accountability.

Ann provides services at our Muncie location.
