"There can be no transforming of darkness into light ... without emotion." -Jung Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the core of my training. It embraces the belief systems of the past that affect your present. It's a state-of-mind that defines thinking that affects emotional awareness. To become aware is not to change, but to understand and accept. Carrying guilt or shame of the past, triggers the conflict of now. I don't offer advice - I offer choices - a chance to choose your own method of healing that fits you - not something others feel 'should' be. Come. Sit. Talk. Let's wander your path together. Licensed in Kentucky, Ohio, South Carolina, Washington DC, Arizona, and Florida

You've taken the first step! I'm Necole a licensed clinician counselor in the states of Tennessee, Kentucky, and Utah. I've always desired to understand feelings, behaviour and the human mind; always been driven toward solving the questions that start with why. My passion for therapy began after realizing I was helping many clients with the similar concerns related to identity confusion, limited self-awareness, and low self-confidence. Life is pretty complex and sometimes presents us with challenges that require support and therapeutic interventions to achieve balance and overall wellness. Congratulations to you for your courage, and on your decision to seek empowerment and enhance your current emotional well-being. If you are in need of more support for your journey don't hesitate to reach out. Even if we aren't the right fit let me send you in the right direction.

I have approximately 30 years of experience in virtually all clinical settings. I began my career working in a juvenile penitentiary (referred to as a 'youth development center) and after almost 6 years, left that setting and moved on to new opportunities. Along the way, I worked with group homes, foster homes, substance abuse treatment programs, and even provided treatment in a sexual offender treatment program. In 2004 I went solely into private practice and currently operate two offices. I also provided on-site services to businesses that suffer a death or other disruptive event; I have provided over 170 of these services in four states during the last several years. While you don't need any faith to see me, I also offer Christian Counseling. Finally, I am a US Army veteran and understand the challenges and needs of veterans. I operate under a practical approach that seeks to build on a person's strengths to achieve realistic, measurable goals. I utilize primarily cognitive behavioral therapy and reality therapy to help my clients achieve their goals and to live life more fully.

As a therapist specializing in systems theory and a person-centered approach, I want to introduce myself and share how I can support family members of individuals struggling with addiction and anxiety. My name is Lainie, and I have dedicated my practice to helping families navigate complex challenges while fostering understanding, healing, and resilience. In working with families impacted by addiction, I approach therapy from a systems perspective, which means I view the family as an interconnected unit where each member's thoughts, emotions, and behaviors influence and are influenced by others. Through this lens, I aim to help family members recognize and address unhealthy patterns of communication, roles, and dynamics that may be contributing to the addiction cycle. Additionally, I integrate person-centered principles into my practice, emphasizing empathy, unconditional positive regard, and genuine acceptance for each family member's unique experiences and perspectives. I believe that creating a nonjudgmental and supportive space is essential for promoting open dialogue, trust, and collaboration within the family system. For family members of individuals struggling with anxiety, I use systems theory to explore how anxiety impacts the family as a whole and how family dynamics may contribute to or alleviate anxiety symptoms. By helping family members understand the interconnected nature of their experiences, we can work together to identify strengths, coping strategies, and communication skills that promote a healthier and more resilient family system. Overall, my approach combines the systemic understanding of family dynamics with the person-centered focus on individual experiences and needs. I strive to empower family members to communicate effectively, set boundaries, support each other, and navigate challenges with compassion and resilience. Together, we can create a therapeutic journey that promotes healing, growth, and positive change within the family system.

During trying to conceive, pregnancy and the postpartum period, women and new moms are faced with all kinds of intense challenges. Between fluctuating hormones, adjustments to motherhood, and the risk of postpartum mood and anxiety disorders, there could be a number of issues that women face during the perinatal journey. I am committed to working with women and providing them support as they navigate these uncharted waters of motherhood. Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders affect 1 in 5 to 7 moms. You are not alone. With support and help, you can be healthy and enjoy a rich and meaningful life. I am certified through Postpartum Support International in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. This training offered me insight to using interpersonal and CBT therapeutic techniques to work with clients who are struggling with adjustments to parenthood, as well as serious mental health issues that can arise during pregnancy or the postpartum period. If you are concerned that your anxiety in pregnancy is not just nerves, or you’re worried that your struggles are greater than the baby blues, reach out today for specialized care. You are not alone, and with help, you can be well.

I am licensed in Kentucky and Florida with 9 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping individuals with coping with high stress careers/front line workers/emergency professionals, addictions, PTSD/ trauma and abuse, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & LGBTQ related issues. Life has many challenges and no one heals the same way. If you are experiencing trauma let me reassure you- you will NEVER be expected to go over the details of the events that have affected you. We will work on your stressors and challenges in a way that will not leave you feel retraumatized or heavier. By meeting my customers where they are at I create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It can be difficult to talk about sensitive issues, but in a safe environment we are allowed to unload the pain and open up to healing. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in Kentucky. Life is full of change and transitions. We can't always control the events in our lives, but we can choose how we respond to them. My goal as a therapist is to provide education and support to people as they learn how to integrate changes into their life story. I believe we all need someone in our lives who provides a safe, nonjudgmental safe space to ask difficult questions and express unfiltered thoughts and emotions. I do more than listen. I teach coping skills as well as provide direct, respectful feedback.

My mission is to be a servant to others by empowering and helping you on your path to emotional wellness. I have helped children, teens and adults with anxiety, depression, mental health disorders, relationship conflict, and parenting concerns; assisted others to heal from acute abuse, childhood and adult traumas. I am also experienced with persons who have migrated to the US from other countries and the barriers that are encountered with those changes. Whether it be acute crises', life surprises, circumstantial stressors or complex traumas; let me teach you new skills or sharpen the ones you already use to either decrease, eliminate or change negative behaviors or unwanted symptoms. I have worked among many different populations and settings (non-profit organizations, state and government facilities, public education, and now private practice) and have learned to navigate through different challenges and with those experiences I have become a person who is compassionate to unique needs and desires. If there is an area of concern that I'm not able to assist you with I will be honest with you and seek assistance or refer you to a better qualified professional.
