As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor Supervisor with a Master's degree from Lindsey Wilson College, I bring expertise and empathy to our therapeutic journey. As a neuropsychotherapist, I treat the brain with a focus on its powerful yet sensitive nature, integrating knowledge from neuroscience into psychotherapy. In our work together, we will incorporate neuroscience findings related to neurons, neurotransmitters, memory, neuroplasticity, and brain structures to develop effective brain-based techniques. I prioritize building genuine rapport and trust with my clients, creating a safe space where we can collaboratively process life's events and work towards healing and growth together. Our therapeutic relationship will be at the core of this process, focusing on a strong therapist-client connection. Additionally, we will utilize techniques to integrate the left and right brain hemispheres, aiming to achieve emotional balance, instill hope, and foster self-efficacy. By blending these approaches, we will work towards enhancing your overall mental health and well-being.

I am a licensed LCSW/LCADCA in Kentucky with 6 years of clinical work experience and over 5 years of working with various populations. I attended Bellarmine University with a concentration in Psychology. I have a BSW and an MSSW from The Kent School of Social Work. I have experience in helping clients heal through stress, anxiety, substance abuse, childhood/lifetime trauma, PTSD, borderline personality, depression, self-esteem, family conflict, sexual dysfunction, professional career stress, and anger management. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment/shame. Authenticity and acceptance of self is a superpower that allows you to accomplish amazing things. I specialize in Trauma/Addiction/mental health with a focus on skill-building, self-compassion, and trauma-informed care. I am sex-positive and inclusive in all sessions. Taking the steps to seek a better life can be scary and hard. We can be afraid and do hard things at the same time. I am here to support you in that process and help you embrace how beautiful life can be. I am open to discussing sliding scale options for those who wish to pursue private pay.

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.

You made it here so you are one step closer to getting the help you deserve. Congratulations! I am a LCSW based out of Southern, Kentucky but originally from Middle Tennessee. I made my way to the beloved Commonwealth of Kentucky to complete my undergraduate degree, Applied Human Sciences with a focus on family and child studies, at Western Kentucky University (WKU). Go Tops! I liked WKU enough that I stuck around for another two years where I completed my Masters in Social Work. Unfortunately I was not granted a wand with my degree to make everyone's life magically better but I was granted the opportunity to help every client I serve. As your therapist I promise to respect, support, and collaborate with you to establish the best way to navigate through the trials and tribulations of life.

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.

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.

Hello, I'm a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Kentucky. I graduated in 2004 with a master's degree. Before putting all my college credits together and working toward a bachelor's degree I worked in fast-food, retail, and banking. As an older adult, I finally achieved my dream goal of being a counselor and since, I have worked in community mental health. I have counseled many different individuals but mostly children and their families. I worked for 10 years doing testing and evaluations for the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation. Most recently, I have worked as a mental health counselor for a college university. There I have worked with young adults, adjusting to independent living and being away from home for the first time.
