What would your life be like if you woke up tomorrow and everything was just how you wanted it to be? What would be different? Therapy can help you identify and reach those goals. Whether your focus is individual, with your partner, or with a family member - the process can be beneficial and effective. My job is to help guide you through the choices, decisions, and communication patterns that are stopping you from making those improvements or changes. Therapy does not have to be intimidating or anxiety provoking. It can instead be an interactive, thought-provoking, learning experience.
I work with a variety of clients: individuals, couples, and families. I believe that you are the expert in your own life. I am an Air Force veteran, and my husband is a Marine Corps veteran. I am honored, and trained, to work with military members, veterans, and their families.
It has been my experience as a licensed counselor that clients know themselves better than anyone. I see therapy as a joint venture where our knowledge and skills are combined to create resolutions and new pathways.
A good therapeutic relationship includes trust, authenticity, freedom to express oneself and positive outcomes. I specialize in treating adults who struggle with mood issues such as anxiety, depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Bipolar Disorder.
I completed my B.A. at Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, Kentucky. My Master's degree was also obtained through Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, Kentucky. I am currently enrolled at Capella University where I am finishing my Doctorate in Psychology. I enjoy helping others and making a difference!
Are you needing help with relationships? Having a hard time getting through a loss? Wanting to be a better spouse? Finding that life is hard and needing support? I would love to help! Every client will be warmly welcomed into my office and together we will collaborate to meet goals to help you be the best version of you. To meet these goals, we will use tools from multiple evidenced based approaches; Gottman Couples Therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy as a couple of the options.
Previously, I have worked with behavioral issues, mood disorders, and trauma-related disorders. I am passionate about providing therapy to individuals, couples, and families in order to help healing of their hearts, minds, marriages, and relationships in a healthy and sustainable way.
Have you ever felt lost or empty in your life? Do you feel like you could be fulfilled but you don't know how to get there? Are you going through a transition in your life and need reassurance or guidance from a non-judgmental place? If so, now is a good time to reach out and explore your own inner strength to make life feel whole again. I work with individuals from all ages, couples in different stages of their relationship, and children who are trying to find their own identity in this world.
I always start where you are the moment we meet. Together, we can develop and build skills to improve different aspects of your life. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to understand anxiety and the automatic thoughts we all have in our life. I utilize a solution-focused approach that way you can feel like you are getting the results you want.
I have experienced life's uncertainties as well: Been married and divorced; Started a career later in life; learned boundaries; self-esteem/body image issues. I have grown from this and continue to learn who I am in the process. This is what I also want for my clients: growth and strength from within. We are not seeking perfection, just acceptance of self.
Your authentic self is waiting for you! Challenging or traumatic life experiences often overshadow our authentic selves. We may feel stuck, lack motivation, or chronically procrastinate. Irrational and self defeating thoughts lead to fear, anxiety, depression, excessive worry, and may manifest in physical symptoms. When we live in this cycle too long it becomes our normal. We may recycle past trauma into present relationships. We find harmful ways to cope; such as people pleasing, codependency and addictive behaviors including, but not limited to substance abuse.
It is possible to change. It is never too late to step onto the path you have envisioned. You can learn to control your thoughts. You can heal from past trauma. You can develop intrinsic motivation to take action and meet your goals. I offer an eclectic approach to therapy. I utilize various evidence based practices to best suit the needs of each individual.
We all have the innate power to live the life we have imagined. Wherever you are on your journey I would be honored to guide and support you toward personal empowerment. You deserve to live your best and most authentic life. Honor yourself and contact me today!

Wanting to move toward being the best and most authentic version of yourself? Just needing a bit of help or push? I'm here to do just that in an open-minded, welcoming, and nonjudgmental environment! I believe the counselor and client relationship is a collaboration where the client's experiences and feelings are combined with the counselor's tools and knowledge to help facilitate movement forward, while processing the client's past. I do this utilizing a multitude of evidence based approaches such cognitive behavioral therapy and person-centered therapy.

I have experience in working with various populations including, adults, (men and women) in addiction, residential and intensive out patient. I also have experience working with Autism, low IQ, special needs, ADHD, trauma, sexual abuse, behavioral issues and various traumatic brain injuries. Lastly, I have experience with PTSD, ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, ODD, OCD, other mental health issues, LGBT and diverse cultural backgrounds.
I think that the clinician and client treatment is a team effort. I offer empathy, respect, non judgement and honesty in an open safe environment, so a client is able to express ones emotions. I also think that clients should be prepared to hear what they need to and not what they want to, in order to be able to address real issues. I give homework for clients to work on, if deemed necessary, or to offer a chance to reflect and work on oneself outside of the session.
I use CBT, MI, Solution Focussed, goal focussed, client centered. I look at the client holistically.

If you are having trouble managing complicated emotions or just feel like you are not living up to your full potential, please feel free to reach out. Even the most difficult situations can be made lighter by increasing understanding and working with a licensed therapist who can facilitate growth and healing
I believe in a person-centered approach when working with clients. In sessions I like to explore client's strengths and weaknesses to facilitate growth in each area. I consider myself to be a very psychoeducational therapist, meaning my clients can expect to learn both inside and outside of sessions with supplemental resources or homework materials. I also believe in meeting clients where they are-no matter where you are in your journey or stage of change, human growth and development is lifelong. Are you ready to take this next step in your life?
I have experience working with individual counseling services for adolescent ages 14+, LGBTQ, adult clients, and diverse cultural backgrounds. My experience includes working with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, trauma as well as adjustment issues.
I believe that we are all individuals with unique issues and therapy should be as unique and individualized as we are. I have a passion for helping those who struggle with substance abuse, trauma, self-image/self-esteem, anxiety and relational issues. I feel with encouragement and support, we can process and develop the skills needed to face those issues and move forward. I believe in autonomy and authenticity.
In session, I am transparent and down-to-Earth and I maintain a Humanistic approach during the therapeutic process to assist those I work with to feel as comfortable as possible. Let's face it, talking to a complete stranger about our lives isn't easy, so my belief is to ensure my clients feel completely supported and heard.
Please feel free to contact me via email, phone or through our website. I look forward to getting to know and working with you. Thank you for having enough trust to reach out.
I have experience working with a variety of populations including adolescents, adults, older adults, LGBTQ+, groups and diverse cultural backgrounds. I work with concerns relating to anxiety, depression, bipolar, transitional periods, communication, trauma and addiction. I utilize a person-centered approach focusing on clients as an individual and recognizing an individual is more than their presenting concern.
Viewing therapy as a partnership, I find it important for the client and therapist to work together towards reaching goals, no matter how big or small. I provide an empathetic, open-minded and supportive environment for clients processing emotions and experiences. I utilize multiple evidence-based approaches such as motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral therapy. I have a genuine passion for helping others and a belief that therapy can be a positive element in one's life.
I have experience working with various populations including adolescents over 14, adults, senior citizens, individuals and couples. I also have experience working with Autism, special needs, ADHD, trauma and behavior issues. Lastly I have experience with PTSD, domestic violence, Anxiety, Depression and other mental health issues and diverse cultural backgrounds.

I have always had a passion for helping others and have served many diverse populations including serving as the Social Services Director in long-term care, a Psychotherapist and Targeted Case Manager with the Substance Use Disorder population and a Para Educator in Special Education.
My clients can look forward to a welcoming environment that is client centered, using a strengths based perspective, and evidence based therapy practices.

I love advocating for clients who need a voice and providing resources helping others achieve much success in their own lives.
I am originally from Louisville but resided in Lexington for nearly 30 years and recently returned to Louisville. I am a divorced, doting mother of 4 adult children and grandmother of ten. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and close friends and listening to music. Also, I prefer warmer weather and outdoor activities like walking. I love to smile and am passionate about life and serving others.
I have experience working with all ages, I feel I can best meet the needs of individuals ages 12 and over. Areas of expertise are in management of mood disorders such as bipolar disorder and Major depressive disorder, psychosis, OCD, generalized anxiety disorder, Post traumatic stress disorder and borderline personality disorder. I am also skilled in addressing symptoms related to grief and loss, relationships issues, adjustment disorders and issues specific to LGBTQ population.
My goal is to create an atmosphere that is gentle, person centered and nonjudgmental. I use a variety of evidenced based treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral therapy, CPT and Mindfulness. Research findings have started to recognize the interdependence between emotional, social, spiritual and physical wellbeing, especially in the treatment of PTSD. Consequently, I often use interventions that are Somatic (body) and Cognitive based. Interventions are also tailored in a way that consider an individual's goals, cultural background, beliefs and personality type.
Over the last 18 years I have worked with an array of populations. My specialty is providing hope and coping skills to those experiencing life transitions such as grief and loss, managing a chronic or terminal illness and new mothers. I also have experience running Re-Entry groups for those transitioning from prison back into the community.
Choosing me as your therapist means we will partner to determine your strengths, areas for growth and you will be empowered to take control of your treatment. You can expect empathy and compassion, respect for your dignity and worth, high level of integrity and service. I will utilize evidence-based approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing in an open-minded, welcoming, and non-judgmental environmental.
I have experience working with populations primarily in the age range of 15-75 years old. I provide medication management to individuals as well as provide counseling to individuals, families, couples. I have multiple families/couples that I have treated off/on since 2015. I specialize in anxiety, depression, ADHD assessment/treatment, bipolar, addiction, PTSD, and lifestyle/behavioral changes. I also treat holistically utilizing supplements, herbs, and/or other "alternative" modalities. I do not prescribe benzodiazepines on a long term basis.
The patient should expect an open and honest practitioner who understands the importance of their need to feel a sense of "teamwork," the need to feel validated and heard, and the need to feel a sense of trust with the practitioner. I utilize multiple approaches in the therapeutic process (MBSR, insight-oriented, solution-focused primarily in that order), but initially my goal is to let them know that I am chill, shoot straight from the hip, don't have much of a filter, that I am able to relate to them as a person, and I believe in them. This allows them the freedom to be chill, shoot straight from the hip, and toss out their filter while they are with me. I believe the only difference between honesty and brutal honesty is in the delivery and most people would rather have honesty-which shows my belief in that person's capabilities-over being manipulated/lied to. If I patient desires homework, I have plenty to work on; outside resources are utilized as needed (Voc-Rehab, referral to specialty MD, assistance with finding a specific resource in the community, support groups, etc...). I order labwork, will collaborate with other providers, refer out, and will order pharmacogenomic testing if warranted.
I have experience working with adolescents and adults on a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, ADHD, life transitions, LGBTQIA2S+, trauma, and grief. I specialize in emotional processing through movement, nervous system regulation, and fascial release.
I believe you are the biggest asset when it comes to treatment, and our goal is to create a partnership where we each share our knowledge and skills to create lasting change. I utilize evidence-based approaches including CBT, DBT, and TF-CBT to support you, challenge you, and listen wholeheartedly while you embark on this healing journey.

I have experience working with a variety of different individuals from all walks of life. In graduate school, I specialized in working with children and families suffering from homelessness in LA county. My work then included treatment of anxiety, depression, young children, LGBTQIA+, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, trauma work, PTSD, play therapy, domestic violence, family conflict, parenting issues, and substance abuse. I have continued to work with these populations since graduation, as well as having expanded to include Acquired Brain Injuries and borderline personality disorder. I greatly enjoy working with adult individuals, young children, families, and couples that want to work on a variety of issues.
I believe that therapy should be a collaborative approach between client and therapist. I have a background in utilizing several evidence-based approaches including cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical-behavioral therapy, play therapy, and person-centered therapy. My theoretical orientation tends to be eclectic, due to my belief that each individual is different and therefore will gain the most benefit from an approach that best suits their needs. Upon entering my office, you can expect to be met where you are at with empathy and respect. Through a collaborative approach, we will begin the therapeutic journey and address your concerns.
Life happens and sometimes that can be difficult to handle. I believe that everyone deserves help when they are feeling like their life is full of hardships.

During your session:
I remain neutral and allow your body's healing to come forth. I have many modalities/tools to help. Connection with breath is a big part of the process also. I hold space for you to see and hold your highest potential. It is my goal for you to step away from your session with a lighter mind and connected body/spirit. You should leave your session feeling in your body, and empowered. Everyone is on a different journey so every session for each person may feel a little different. Stay mindful and playful with what comes up and you will be sure to live the best life you can.
With open communication in a safe space, we work on what comes up that day. I hold no judgments for what we discuss. There is also time and space to be in the stillness and quiet. I offer the time with clients to be what they need. I listen to the ebbs and flows of the session. I attempt to balance the art of listening with the art of holding you accountable for your own health.
Through my time in Lindsey Wilson College masters program as well as my time spent as a teacher, coach, and parent I have spent the most time working with preteens, teens, and young adults. I also have experience working with adults, large and small groups, the LGBTQ+ community, and people with diverse cultural backgrounds.
My goal is to create a collaborative, comfortable, and judgment free environment for the client to express emotions and conflicts both big and small. By having these open and honest conversations, the client and I will be able to use evidence-based strategies such cognitive behavioral therapy and person-centered therapy in order to achieve overall wellness.
