Hello, I'm Jay. I like to keep a flexible approach with my clients since every individual case is unique. Exploring relationships and how to build healthy ones (especially the relationship with one’s self) is typically a top priority in our sessions. Also, identifying and developing your values will be an important aspect of our work together. I’m a generalist and enjoy working with adults who are dealing with anxiety, depression, or relationship concerns. I'm confident we can find ways to create balance in your life and manage the ongoing stressors.

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.

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.

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.

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.

What would your life be like if the things that are causing you problems weren't so much of a problem? How much better would your daily life be if the raging wildfire of debilitating emotions and thoughts inside you was reduced to a birthday candle? Whether our work together is addressing years of trauma that impacts your present day or brief, solution focused interventions for a problem that requires decisive action; we will count on years of experience and training to help us navigate the issues you face. Together, we will identify your strengths, cultivate them, and work to set you up for a life of continued success using your definition of what success looks like TO YOU. After all, it's your life and you are the expert in how to best live it. My career has been dedicated to helping others, especially those who have struggled with trauma disorder, such as PTSD. For the last three years I have specialized in working with children and teens in the Kentucky Foster Care system. Before that, I spent years working with adults, teens, and children in the outpatient clinical setting, veterans in transitional housing shelters with trauma and substance use disorders, children and adolescents in a psychiatric residential treatment setting, and as a case manager linking families to needed resources. Now, I have decided to use my skills in private practice to focus on helping my fellow Kentuckians, especially those in Appalachia, have access to high quality care that they don't have to leave home to access.

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.

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.

Are you tired of the struggle? The struggle to even get up and get through the day? Or the struggle to keep a lid on your emotions out of fear? Are you tired of worry? Tired of being haunted by memories? Is anxiety and/or depression presenting you with more struggles? Are you struggling to find a path in life? Do you feel as if you're not living up to your full potential in your career or relationships? I help people realize that the struggle itself is sometimes worse than what we are struggling against; and that the struggle can then become the main problem. The struggle can hide real solutions to those problems. The struggle becomes more important. The "struggle is real." With an understanding of how we can get into these habits of struggle, and with evidence-based mindfulness practices to help us respond rather than react (the struggle), you absolutely can lead a rich and full life. I'll help you find this path. Working together we can get through (or around), the struggle and move forward on a valued path - rather than one that emphasizes the need to avoid and control problems that life inevitably presents us. All of us.

My mission is to be used by God to help others reach their highest potential and purpose in life; to represent and teach tolerance, respect, and harmony; and to promote social and economic justice. I believe that all people regardless of race, culture, age, gender, religion, physical or mental disability, and sexual orientation are entitled to basic rights and fair, humane treatment. I believe that all members of society should have the same basic rights, protections, opportunities, obligations, and social benefits. My practice is governed by the belief that you are a valuable human being. You have the right to express your ideas and opinions openly and honestly. You have the right to direct and govern your life. You have the right to stand up for yourself without anxiety and make choices that are good for you. You have the right to change your mind. You have the right to not be liked by everyone. You have the right to be wrong. You have the right to make requests and refuse them without feeling guilty. You have the right to ask for information. You have the right not to be responsible for others’ behaviors, actions, feelings, or problems.

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 Angela Hall, a psychotherapist dedicated to working with women. I'm happy to partner with Grow on this platform. My approach is holistic, spiritual, clinical, collaborative, trauma informed and rooted in neuroscience. I’m passionate about helping women identify their purpose and what brings them fulfillment and joy. It’s a privilege to support women and introduce them to a new perspective. I have special interest in supporting women who are: ~Navigating relationship loss of any kind (death, divorce, job loss, family disconnect, etc.). ~Managing the physical and emotional challenges of anxiety disorders including Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia and Social Anxiety. ~Overcoming codependence, people-pleasing or religious trauma and conditioning. As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, my clinical training is Marriage & Family Therapy, so I have insight into interpersonal relationships, the family support system & the way we influence and are influenced by those around us. I'm proud to be a practitioner of Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), a highly effective intervention that shifts the way the brain and the body store traumatic events. Remember, what you are not changing, you are choosing. If you are motivated for change and ready to move forward into a new season of life I'd be honored to help you along the way.

I focus on helping clients develop assertive communication & boundaries with themselves and those around them that can help improve their quality of life.
