Navigating the ups and downs of life can be challenging. It helps to have genuine and nonjudgmental support along the way. If you encounter a fork in the road of life and feel unsure of which path to take, counseling may help you explore personal growth and positive change. In our busy lives, it can be difficult to slow down and truly connect with ourselves, our values, and our understanding of the world around us. I believe therapeutic change occurs when we let go of perceived pressures and expectations so that we may seek a better understanding of our authentic selves.

Walking with people through life's difficulties and struggles is a privileged, honor, and part of my purpose in life. I commit my life to helping people find their way back to the right paths that they want to be on to live out their purpose. Hi! My name is Lana and I have been a LCSW since 2011. I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families. I specialize in issues of adjustment, trauma, depression, anxiety, crisis, grief, child and adolescent behaviors, and sexual abuse. I also have experience with talking with individuals with mood and personality disorders, PTSD, and issues surrounding divorce. On a more personal level, I enjoy traveling and refer to myself as a coffee connoisseur. I also have two small dogs that think they run the world and like to introduce themselves from time to time in my sessions. I always have a plan but I believe some of life's greatest adventures are in taking the scenic route.

Do you ever feel like you have to monitor, pull back, and even hide yourself from others? From friends, family, acquaintances, even from yourself? Do you tend to put your needs and wants at the bottom of the list? Are you ready to commit to you? Together we will work side by side to help strengthen your confidence, awareness, insight, healing and make progress within yourself. As a Sex-positive, Kink-knowledgeable, Gender affirming, and Trauma therapist I understand that we are all different and provide a laid-back atmosphere. I focus on helping others build an understanding about not only themselves, their identity, their relationships, and the relationship they have with sex. Help others understand their trauma whether that be physical, mental, sexual, spiritual, etc. While utilizing evidence-based practices, I strive to support, encourage, and empower you. I view mental health as just as important as physical health. When an injury/illness occurs, seeking professional intervention, guidance, and support can improve overall wellness. Depending on your physical environment, social circle, culture, heredity, and experiences. Life can look limited. Let's continue to stay curious. There are options out there that do align with you and your values. Let's work together resulting in a healthier and happier you.

Are you a parent of a high-achieving adolescent or college student who seems to be withdrawing from school and from their friends? COVID created treacherous hurdles that high school and college students had to navigate including lack of socializing with peers and not having adequate support from teachers and inadequate learning opportunities for them to develop into confident students. Competition is now relentless due to 24 hour access to social media and kids just don't have enough down time to unplug. Are you a veteran of any of the conflicts in Afghanistan or Iraq? Are you having trouble integrating into civilian life or are traumatic memories of combat preventing you from having healthy relationships? I get it. I served in the U.S. Army from March of 2009 to September 2014 and deployed to Mosul, Iraq as part of Operation New Dawn. I am passionate about helping my brothers and sisters in arms move their lives forward and to find their new normal. I also enjoy helping professional women with life transitions whether that mean a new job, becoming a parent, infertility issues, or pursuing a new career. Please give me a call. Therapy is a collaborative process and I look forward to helping you on your journey.

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.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social worker based in Bowling Green, KY who has an obsession with Dolly Parton, Pekingese dogs, and New Orleans. I have been in practice since 2017 and have worked with clients experiencing substance abuse, sexual trauma, and grief and loss. I have also experienced anxiety and trauma in my life that has led me to my own therapy journey to healing. I believe that therapy can awaken parts of us that hold more strength than we know. Therapy gives back to us the power and the peace that might be eluding us because of our pain and confusion. I have seen the way therapy can heal and inspire change. It is the highest honor to walk alongside my client in their journey. As a therapist, I still haven't found magic words to make it all better or take it all away. But in sessions with me, you will feel heard and seen. I will always keep your life and therapy goals in mind. I will support and challenge you with humor and sincerity. So when you're ready, I'm here.
