I am a clinical psychologist in private practice in Indianapolis, specializing in the assessment and treatment of problems that bridge the psychological and spiritual realms.  I am particularly focused on unconscious psychological factors that thwart one’s capacity to receive love from God and other people and to love God and others, including the effects of trauma.  In this, I draw from psychodynamic, attachment, interpersonal, Internal Family Systems, and EMDR approaches.  I also specialize is psychological testing and assessment, and frequently teach and present at conferences.  I’ve been a psychologist in Indianapolis for 19 years, have been married for 23 years and have seven children ranging in age from 9 to 23.  I enjoy raising animals, vegetables and fruits on our small farm, reading, and chess.

I am currently interpersonal process group clients on Monday nights, but my individual psychotherapy practice is full. 

Hello, I am a practicum student here at Secure Foundations working on a Master's in Counseling at Marian University Indianapolis. I am originally from Indiana but lived in Austria for six years where I completed a Master's in Theology at the International Theological Institute in Austria. My primary treatment modality is Internal Family Systems therapy, I am also influenced by existential, attachment, and interpersonal theories. My background in philosophy and Catholic Theology underlies how I view various treatment modalities. I love to travel and explore new places, in my free time I enjoy long walks in nature, spending time with family and friends, reading, and taking time to think about interesting topics. As a practicum student, I see clients under the supervision of Dr. Malinoski. I am currently accepting new clients.
