It's okay to not be okay, and I am so proud of you for putting in the research to find a therapist who is a good fit for you. A little bit about myself, I was raised in Lexington, KY and after living in Western Kentucky for 11 years, I have returned home to my roots. I graduated from Western Kentucky University with a Masters in Social Work and have worked as a psychotherapist in community mental health, private practice, and assisted care facilities. I would describe myself as quirky, direct, and compassionate. I am a mom of two boys who are my absolute world and the reason for transitioning to online therapy. I absolutely love my job and love working with people to improve their mental health and overall quality of life. You deserve to be heard, believed and encouraged. Giving therapy a shot can feel intimidating but also life-changing and if you're still reading this I hope that you will consider booking an appointment with yours truly :)

Walking with people through life's difficulties and struggles is a privileged, honor, and part of my purpose in life.

Hello! My name is Amaris and I'm happy you're here :) Do you ever feel confused by your behavior? Do you act in ways that are incongruent with who you want to be? Do you struggle with self-doubt and wish you could have more confidence? There are always reasons why people do the things they do. My approach is to help alleviate shame and unnecessary guilt by helping clients understand the “why” behind their emotions and behaviors. I use a trauma-informed approach with all my clients and aim to create an emotionally safe space to explore vulnerable thoughts and feelings. Sometimes personal growth means accepting that you're either going to deal with your stuff, or your stuff is going to deal with you. Therapy is a great place to start the healing process.

Are feelings of fear, unworthiness, guilt or sadness keeping you from reaching your full potential? Are the stories you tell yourself keeping you stuck in the same dysfunctional patterns again and again? Are the expectations of others in your life clashing with who you know to be your authentic self? With someone to hold space for you, it is possible to grow in compassion for yourself. Are you ready to start challenging your inner critic so you can reach your full potential and lead the life you deserve? I’m a licensed clinical social worker in the states of Kentucky and Indiana. My passion is helping women reclaim the parts of themselves that may have been lost as we try to balance it all. We live in a world where we find that it's increasingly hard to live up to others' ideas of who we should be. We "should" ourselves until we're not even sure what we want out of life anymore. Until one day we realize we've lost ourselves. As someone who has made it to the other side of burnout, I can say there is a different way to approach life.

Life can be hard. Sometimes we can feel like we are falling into the same old patterns and asking ourselves the same unhelpful questions. This can be difficult because we often get stuck here rather than finding the growth and progress that we desire. As a therapist, my hope is to help you better understand this feeling of "stuckness” the various things which lead us to this space. I like to understand generational traumas through the lens of attachment theory and help clients find a sense of empowerment in breaking cycles and establishing healthier ways to interact with themselves and others. want to work with clients on addressing this in session to help them feel more in control of themselves and break away from that endless cycle that we can find ourselves in. This can be hard to do because it requires looking at things that are scary and unknown, but as your therapist

This is not the life you pictured, is it? You know things need to change but have no idea where to start. Being a human in this fast-paced society is quite difficult and often times heartbreaking. I strive to place the therapeutic relationship as my primary focus, because until someone feels authentically accepted, change is not going to be possible. You came here to change things in your life but ironically, first you have to learn to accept who and what you are, right in this moment. I can help you get to that place! I mix science of the brain & body in combination with identifying the many loops and patterns we tend to get "stuck" in, to help clients achieve authentic change, and a more peaceful outlook on themselves and their life.

Mental health counseling can help you cope with feelings and situations in everyday life or past experiences. It can help with feelings of anger, fear, anxiety, shyness, and panic. It also can give you tools to help fight low self-esteem and depression. Since everyone experiences grief, sadness, and stress it can be hard to know when it’s time to see a professional. I can help! I believe there is a difference between being nice and kind, nice is saying or doing what you want to hear and kind is saying or doing what needs to be said or done. During my 12 years as a counselor, I have worked as a clinical director in 3 residential facilities and currently working as the clinical supervisor training new counselor.

Dealing with health and physical challenges? All of the chaos and uncertainty in the world today has caused increased stress and anxiety for many folks, which may make your own personal struggles seem insurmountable. You are not alone. The difference is, you have recognized that whatever you have been doing to cope is not working and you are ready to explore other possibilities to manage your concerns.

Life isn’t always sunshine and rainbows; it can be filled with challenges, difficulties, and hardships. I believe that life is all about perspective and the way we react to problems. Our trials and tribulations are opportunities for us to grow into stronger and wiser individuals. When challenges arise, most people ask, "Why?" I encourage my clients to change their mentality by asking, "How?"—how can I use this to grow and learn, make myself smarter and wiser?" With 7 years of sobriety and personal experience battling my own challenges, I know how helpful therapy can be in helping a person rebuild their life and become the person they want to be. I am a firm believer in empowering clients with the tools and knowledge needed to live a more fulfilling and productive life.

I am so glad you have decided to seek help, and I look forward to meeting you on this healing journey. I decided to become a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) therapist because I have always enjoyed helping people realize their potential, and when I was getting out of the army, I had a therapist to help me through that transition, which inspired me to follow this career path. When people experience trauma and stress, there is a tendency to develop a zoomed-in view of the problem and even blame themselves for the root of the problem. I am here to help you develop a more helpful and realistic outlook and note available solutions to what is going on. I have education and experience treating clients with depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder.

I would like to help you find a new path and behaviors that will help you thrive. Chances are other’s expectations of you have either been too much or too little. You may be having difficulty helping yourself. My work involves creating a safe, supportive, non-judgmental therapeutic environment where my clients can process their experiences and explore their emotions and thoughts. I use a combination of evidence-based therapeutic approaches and personalized treatment plans to address the unique needs and goals of each individual. My focus during my psychology career has been working with people who have disabilities. I have worked in a rehabilitation hospital, nursing homes, Church based community counseling and a state rehabilitation center for persons who are blind or visually impaired. I have experience in determining the validity of testing, and in research.

Hi, everyone. I'm Susan. Welcome to my world – an experience in which we engage in a unique partnership on what may be one of the most important journeys of your life. Are you feeling unloved, unappreciated, helpless, hopeless due to some unplanned reality in your life. Do you need healing from adversity such as the ending of a relationship, the loss of employment, an unexpected debilitating illness, the death of a loved one, post-partum depression. These are a few of life occurrences that may have us feeling we will never see the light in the darkness or rise out of the flood of emotion. No matter what the adversity, we each have the inborn resilience to either return to a previous "normal" or carve out a new "normal." On this journey, we are truly partners. Each of us has a part in the process of healing. I rely on my knowledge and skills to guide me in EMDR, CBT, CPT, DPT, or Mindfulness. New coping strategies help to reduce the intensity of symptoms and permit you to face whatever painful occurrence has come into your life. So…I invite you to invite me to share this journey.

Mental health treatment is more relevant than it has been in any other prior era. You may not know what "self care" or "self respect" entail because these topics are often not taught within our major institutions. We are living in an "age of anxiety" and many people are struggling to find meaning while processing the messages conveyed in the social media and digital worlds. I have been working as a therapist in the mental health field for the last 15 years and specialize in addressing mood disorders, psychotic disorders and trauma based difficulties. Mental health and psychology are fields that continue to develop and I enjoy learning as much about these topics as possible. My initial experience in mental health involved working in the community mental health and criminal justice systems. This allowed me to work with a wide variety of life situations and diagnoses within multiple demographics. I have also been in private practice, geriatric, and mental health administrative roles.

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.

As a seasoned therapist my experience includes a wide spectrum of mental health issues. I have a network of physicians, mental health providers, and spiritual advisors whose counsel I seek to help provide the best care for my clients. It is my goal to lead clients to ask the right questions and help them find answers that will result in a positive, forward movement in the therapeutic process. My main focus is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, but use other modalities when necessary to help clients achieve the change they are seeking. My practice involves, but is not exclusive to, marriage and family counseling, depression, anxiety, bipolar issues, LGBTQ issues, aging issues, workplace issues, mediation etc. I also provide faith based counseling when requested. My practice is open to all regardless of who they are or the issues for which they may be seeking guidance. My goal is to help clients move forward positively, finding coping skills that work well for them. If in the process I or the client determine I am not the right fit, my self esteem is not tied to it. I will help them find someone who may work better for helping them to achieve their goals.
