Contracted Office Staff with Oases Counseling Center


 

Amanda Broadus –  Office Administrator

Hi there! My name is Amanda Broadus, I am a 23-year-old Indiana native, fresh out of college. In December 2020 I acquired my BA in Integrated Public Relations with a minor in psychology from Central Michigan University. Understanding humanity on a deeper level has been a passion of mine since my first psychology course in high school; I believe emotional intelligence is an underrated skillset that can provide good healing in parts of the world.

My role at Oases is connecting you with a counselor who fits your needs best, providing the comfort you need, and making your mental health journey a positive and welcoming experience. When I'm not in my administrative roll you can find me at home with my 2 cuddly cats and every tv streaming service available. Leisure reading, wine tasting, and blogging are a few of my other favorite pass times.

Julia Tothova, MSW, LCSW

"Shame dies when stories are told in safe spaces." (Ann Voskamp).
Life can be very challenging at times and feel overwhelming (especially this past year!) but you do not need to face it alone. I work with individuals to help them deepen their understanding of self in context of their situation and help influence positive change. With warm and empathetic approach, I work with you to help you explore your hardship, and understand patterns, behaviors, and relational dynamics that impact your overall quality of life.
My background is in dual diagnosis treatment which includes multitude of mental health issues and addiction. My work is heavily guided by my belief that human beings are adaptable and resilient. My main goal in my practice is to create a safe, non-judgmental environment to promote growth and healing.
Personally, I am first and foremost a mom to a sweet 10 month old. I was born & raised in Slovakia, grew up in Colorado and have called Indiana my home for the past decade. I have extensive experience working with clients from all backgrounds and am committed to a lifetime of learning from my clients, through research, and from personal experience.

Laura DeArmond, MSW, LCSW

My name is Laura DeArmond and I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and will soon be obtaining my license as a clinical addictions counselor (LCAC). My background is in trauma and substance use. I have extensive history working with teens. With my B.S in Psychology, I worked as a Life Skills Clinician with teens, teaching new skills and support. My career as a therapist has included several years working at Lutherwood residential with teenage males struggling with trauma and conduct disorder, and teenage females that were survivors of commercial sexual exploitation. I then worked at Community North on the youth inpatient psych unit, and an adult detox unit. I am currently working full-time for Inspire Counseling and Support Center/ Transition House, and I am really enjoying the less intensive pace as an outpatient therapist. In my free time, I will be doing anything outdoors - hiking, fishing, mountain biking, kayaking, and camping. I am always spending time with my three daughters and our giant, goofy dog. I also enjoy reading, gardening, cooking, games, going to all the concerts with my partner, and knitting. I am so excited to join the team at Oases, and look forward to providing great client services!

 


Supervised Student Therapists at Oases


 

Julie Moeller

Hi! My name is Julie Moeller. I am a student in the Counselor Education program at Adams State University, working toward a degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am also a Hancock County native and thrilled to be back in my hometown, working with members of the community.

My goal is to help individuals improve their mental health well-being through an empathetic, non-judgmental counseling relationship. Especially now, stress is an epidemic, and we all need tools and support to cope and live well. I want to encourage individuals to see the power of their own choices and perspective, to recognize their ability to grow, and to patiently celebrate small but significant change. I am excited to learn alongside clients as we partner to progress their mental health journeys.

During my training period, I will benefit from the supervision of Kimberly Hage, LCSW as well as the tremendous knowledge of the other Oases Counseling Center providers.

Personally, I am a mother to two teenage girls. In my free time, I enjoy tennis, golf, reading and puzzles.


Mark Abou-Rached

Hello! My name is Mark. I am in my second year of graduate school and will graduate in May 2023 with a Master’s of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adams State University. I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology at Kansas State University. I am bilingual, as I am fluent in Lebanese-Arabic.

I have a passion for helping people become the best versions of themselves, and I believe counseling is a particularly effective way to do that. I provide empathetic and non-judgmental counseling where you can express the most genuine and vulnerable aspects of yourself. Areas I am especially passionate about include: depression, anxiety, autism, relationship issues and self-esteem. I work with clients ages 16 and over.

My favorite activity to do outside of counseling is playing basketball. I have a passion for it and athletics in general have a dear place in my heart. I consider myself to be family oriented and love spending time with those close to me. I am an avid reader, especially on topics related to psychology and counseling.
