10 years of experience

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing child and family therapy in Kentucky for 15 years. I work with kids and families to process difficult experiences and improve the way they cope with new stressors. I also assist parents who are looking for support in being the best parent they can be. It's my joy to partner with you and help you explore and clarify your goals, process difficult situations, identify and practice new skills, and leave therapy feeling confident.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session, we will explore your goals for therapy and I'll gather information on how life is going right now as well as your past history. Once we have a clear picture of your goal/s, we'll identify a few strategies to follow up on in the next appointment.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I'm empathetic, supportive and positive-minded so that you can feel accepted and cared about as we work though vulnerable areas in your life. I'll help you find your strengths and challenge yourself to grow into the person you want to be.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is useful in exploring how our most difficult reactions, like fear, anger, shutting down or lashing out, originate from our automatic, often unrecognized, thoughts. I have worked with many clients to identify their problematic reactions, gain understanding, and create new pathways for healing and handling difficulties in their life.

Grief Therapy

It's natural to try and avoid painful things, and losing someone we love can be the hardest situation to face. It's important to spend time working through loss, and the other issues it can bring up. Grief therapy can lessen the hurt much more than trying to push pain away. It is possible to transform a terrible experience into one that grows us and deepens our relationships and life. It would be my honor to help you process the losses in your life.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing explores our desire for change and acknowledges forces that keep change from happening too quickly. This is a wonderful method for anyone who has been stuck on a change they've wanted to make, and it allows for open exploration of the issues you'd like to talk about in therapy.

Parent-Child Interaction (PCIT)

They say there's no manual for parenting, but this may be as close as it gets. PCIT is a two-pronged approach that works first on building an enjoyable deeper connection with your child, then works on setting boundaries your child can respond positively to so that not just behaviors improve but your relationship also. This method provides a concrete framework to lean on while working through difficult child behaviors. It also fills the deeper emotional needs of the child and you as their parent. I recommend this for any parent of young child/ren who feels overwhelmed and wants to make lasting improvements.
