    We are Mike and Kim O'Connell! We are both marriage and family therapists in the Indianapolis area and we would love to have the opportunity to journey with you as you encounter important moments in your life.

    Our mission is striving to help people heal their wounds, learn about themselves, build confidence, and apply what they learn from therapy to their life.

    Individual Counseling

     

    Feeling stressed, alone, anxious, maybe even depressed? Going through a transition in life? It’s important to have someone you can trust in the ups and downs of life.

    Individual sessions are typically 45-60 min weekly and offer an opportunity to explore your story and how you cope with life’s challenges.

    We are happy to coordinate with your doctor’s office to help manage medication.

    Couples Counseling

     

    As Marriage and Family Therapists, we have extensive training and experience working with couples. In all relationships, there is a natural give and take. At times, our sense of love or trust may be challenged and it becomes difficult to communicate, be intimate or forgive. Couples may find themselves at a standstill or unable to reconnect.

    Whether you have been together for 50 years or 50 minutes, couples counseling is a great way to restore balance in your relationship and work together to vision your future.

     

    We also offer pre-marital counseling to help prepare engaged couples for marriage.

    Family Counseling

     

    Family is important. Normal challenges cause families to have to adapt. Life transitions, divorce, school challenges, sickness, and death, are just a few examples of some of the challenges families may face. Family therapy helps families to adjust and maintain relationships even through great challenges.

    Prepare-Enrich is the gold standard of couple's assessments with over 45 years of development. Prepare-Enrich uses evidence-based research to help couples gain a better understanding of their relationship, grow in relationship satisfaction, and learn new skills surrounding communication, conflict resolution, stress management, and more. It is an excellent tool to help couples who are preparing for marriage, or for seasoned couples seeking some enrichment surrounding their relationship.

    I want to walk alongside you, your partner, or family as you experience and adjust to transitions in your life. I hope to help you feel more balanced in your identity as together we build a solid foundation of love, care, and kindness for yourself that can help positively impact the relationships that are most important to you.

     

    I use a systemic experiential model to help you recognize family patterns in order to connect with yourself or your partner, to help you feel grounded when anxious, and to create trustworthiness with yourself and others. We will work together to create an important foundation to engage in the work of relational wellness through better communication, increased intimacy, and connectivity with the people who are most important to you.

    Mike has been featured on MTV's Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant!

    I have a passion to journey with individuals and couples as they seek to restore love and trust in their life and relationships.

     

    I specialize in working with couples struggling with communication, intimacy, life transitions, and conflict (including infidelity, addiction, abuse, and trauma).

    I also work with men who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, life transitions, paternity, and relationship struggles.

     

    All clients (individual and couple) will come to understand their behavioral responses caused by our internal experiences of pain, what we refer to as the pain cycle. We will then map out and organize new opportunities for personal responsibility and predictability, referred to as our peace cycle. We will seek together how to practice and strengthen making decisions within our peace cycle instead of making decisions while coping with our pain cycle.
