About Dr. Herrmann
I did my undergraduate degree at Indiana University Bloomington, graduating in 1983 with a B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Philosophy. After a few years of gaining life experience, I returned to IU and completed a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology in 1992.
As a part of my doctoral program, I completed a one year internship at the Colmery-O’Neil Veterans Hospital in Topeka, Kansas, with rotations on Post-Traumatic Stress, Acute Inpatient, and Outpatient units. My first doctoral position was at the Topeka State Hospital where I was a staff psychologist assigned to one of four adolescent units. During my three years in Topeka, I also did extensive training at the Menninger Clinic, focusing on psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychological testing. I returned to Indiana in 1994 to take a position at the Indiana Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Children’s Home, where I remained for three years doing psychotherapy, psychological testing, and staff consultation. For the next two years, I provided all of the psychological testing for the Whitewater Valley Care Pavilion, an adolescent inpatient setting, while also providing psychotherapy and psychological testing for adults and adolescents on an outpatient basis. At that point, the Bloomington magnet was exerting a strong pull, and I returned in 1999 with a position in the outpatient office of Bloomington Hospital. There, I continued to provide psychotherapy and psychological testing for adolescents and adults. In 2005, I branched out into private practice, which I have continued to the present time.
