​                                            DOUG COLGROVE -- I have been a professional Christian counselor and consultant since 1985 and have                                             worked with a wide range of issues with both groups and individuals. I know the world of mental health                                                       from all aspects and I believe I am doing what I am supposed to be doing. It all began when I volunteered as                                               a youth leader for Young Life in Muncie, Indiana.  I began to see how positive relationships can change lives.


                                            I spent the next four years learning about adolescents and their needs in relationships. I knew then that working with others with a relationship with Jesus Christ as the base was what I wanted to do. I pursued a degree in Psychology and Bible from Milligan College, finishing in December of 1987. While there, I worked full time at Woodridge Psychiatric Hospital in the Adolescent and Intensive Treatment units. The experience was life changing! I began to understand others at their weakest moments and learned how to interact with them to rebuild hope.

Coming home from Milligan, I accepted a similar position at St. Francis Hospital in Beech Grove, Indiana.  I worked primarily with the adolescent population. I also pursued my Master’s Degree in Counseling and Counselor Education while at St. Francis, finishing in 1996. In February 1998, I was promoted to the manager of the Employee Assistance program. My ministry there consisted of counseling employees and their family members on a variety of issues as well as educating hospital departments on topics such as (but not limited to) Stress Management, Team building, Effective Communication and Conflict Resolution. In addition, I consulted with business leaders on the management of their employees, use of EA services and methods to improve employee productivity. In 1998, I became certified in Critical Incident Stress Management. In October of 2012, I began a two-year service to the Indiana Chapter of the Employee Assistance Professionals Association as President, and in 2012, I served as Vice President. I concluded the ministry at St. Francis in July 2013.

Concurrent with the position at St. Francis, I began counseling with Christian Counseling Associates (CCA) in 1988 and built a part-time counseling ministry in Hendricks County, Indiana. I served many churches in the area and learned how to effectively use Scripture in counseling under the guidance and mentorship of Rick Sudsberry. I left CCA in 1998 to take on the full time management position at St. Francis. However, in 2013, I partnered again with Rick Sudsberry to provide a full range of counseling services to Hendricks County. This counseling is faith-based and specializes in trauma and attachment. In addition to business leadership experience I gained at St. Francis, I have developed a passion to take those skills and assist ministerial staff with the massive amount of stress and dysfunction that exists in the ministry. This ministry continues to grow and develop.

It has been an amazing journey so far. I have gained so much insight into the behavior of others and have seen so much hope and growth through the life changing use of God’s love. Through it all, I have been blessed to be married to my wonderful wife, Johanna, since 1985. God saw fit to bless us with one child, Michael, who joined us in 1993. During Michael’s youth, I was blessed to serve as President of Ben Davis Little League for 2 years and served on its' board for 6 years.


Some of the specialties that I have developed over the years are: 
Adolescent Issues                                                                                          Trauma Care

                                       RACHEL BENNETT -- I am a mature life-long learner always striving toward the newest and most efficient

                                        ways to help others achieve their goals of a healthier lifestyle.  My philosophy is to use what life has taught

                                        me  wisely and integrate it into the knowledge gained through my studies.  I believe this approach has

                                        allowed me to gain more insight into how we work through our problems and feelings.

                                       I believe nothing happens in life by chance and everything, both good and bad, has some reason.  I value a warm relationship and strive to create a safe place for those who I have the honor to serve and work with in therapy. With the relationship between the client and counselor as the primary source for healing, I incorporate a variety of approaches tailored to the therapeutic needs of the client. Primarily, I use attachment theory, person-centered and strengths based approaches, various experiential therapies, narrative therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy within my work.  I also incorporate a variety of art, music and movement within therapy.

I am certified in Attachment Based Relationship Therapy (ABRT®) which is an experiential model used with children from the age of 2 to adults who have experienced trauma and/or attachment related issues.  ABRT® is often the mode of therapy I use with adoptive/foster families to promote parent to child leadership and relationship bonding.  I work with adults and adolescents struggling with past trauma, PTSD, grief, depression, anxiety or spiritual issues.  I am also certified in Hope Focused Couple Therapy and PREPARE/ENRICH couples therapy models.  Each of these models focus on couple's strengths while building or rebuilding relationship.


At Centers for Hope and Wellness, Inc., we are a small team of Christian counselors and staff who care for people from all walks of life.  We provide services for individuals, couples, families, children, teens and adults.
