As an experienced LCSW with 16 years in the mental health field, I aim to empower individuals believe in themselves again. I work with clients through a solution-focused and CBT approach to identify and develop the skills needed to resolve their unique challenges and situations. I help clients to embrace their truth and remind them that it is "Ok not to be perfect!". I specialize in helping people heal from trauma and learn how to love/realize themselves, which entails cultivating healthier relationships, less anxiety and more purpose in their life’s journey. My goal is to help you live life from a place of whole-hearted connection to your world. I am a LCSW (licensed clinical social worker), a Veteran, an adoptive mother, a professor, a daughter, a sister, a community activist, LGBTQIA+ Activist, a nurturer, an empath and and advocate for the voiceless. I am also a survivor of many autrocities that this world has had to offer - but I survived and proudly help others climb out of the mental muck and mire that I used to call home.

If you can relate, you have come to a right place and I applaud you for finding strengths to reach out for help.

Hello! I am Susan. Are you feeling stuck in life and defined by past traumas or mistakes? Do you find these issues affecting your ability to establish quality relationships? Does anxiety or depression feel like a constant companion? It is my goal to meet each individual where they are at in life and learn their story so that we can address the core issues and not just treat the surface symptoms. I work from a strengths-based approach as we identify barriers to progress and create a path forward to overcome those barriers. I love to meet each new client and feel humbled to bear witness to their stories and their healing. Seeking therapy can feel so intimidating. It takes great courage to face the memories and issues you may have avoided up until now. When we meet, it will be your goals and values that guide treatment. I will allow you to set the pace so that the process feels tolerable. It is one of the greatest privileges of my life to walk with others through hard places. I utilize a variety of evidence-based treatments depending on your needs and preferences. Let healing start now.

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.

Hi! I know you’re most likely nervous about this right now. You have worked up the nerve to look into it, and now you may be thinking, “How do I know who to pick?” Well, I consider myself a little different. Rather than using one method of treatment for everyone, I tailor my techniques and approach to each person I work with in treatment.

I am a queer, neurodivergent therapist who specializes in working with queer, neurodiverse clients. I provide a compassionate, person-center approach, and I have a focus on authenticity in my sessions while providing a comfortable, affirming, slightly humorous atmosphere for healing. I also have a strong intersectional and social justice orientation, and I'm LGBT+ friendly, gender-affirming, kink-friendly, and my approach to neurodivergence is rooted in lived experience. I also work with people who have experienced childhood abuse and neglect, religious trauma, and systemic oppression. My primary approaches are person-centered, emotion-focused, compassionate, gender-affirming, and psychoeducation-based, but I'm also trained in EMDR for trauma, and Exposure and Response Prevention for OCD.

Welcome! I'm Danielle. Take a moment to acknowledge you've taken the first step towards bettering your mental health because, let's be honest - starting therapy can be empowering, confusing, or scary, all at the same time. Try as we might, sometimes happiness and contentment always seem just out of reach. Depression, anxiety and stress can make getting out of bed in the morning a daunting task. Troubles in your relationship or conflict in the family can make you feel helpless or overwhelmed. Creating a daily routine using strategies that ground you and support moving forward in areas where you feel stuck. Improving your outlook on life to see past the stressful events that feel overwhelming. Talking through challenges and learning different ways to look at something in order to make progress, even when feeling depressed and anxious. As a therapist, it is my goal for clients to feel empowered and supported as we navigate through your journey to healing and wellness. I’m passionate about approaching therapy in a client centered way, and want each session to take you exactly where you need in that moment. My therapy approach is warm and accepting, focusing on establishing overall wellness. Therapy can seem daunting, we will go at a pace that is comfortable for you and discuss the topics you want. What are the tension points? Let's talk about those and develop a daily routine that grounds you and allows you to feel more in control of your life. I am here to listen and encourage you as you talk to support your healing and recovery.

I have been practicing for 27 years, working with a wide variety of populations and in many different settings. I have a PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision and an MA in Counseling and Rehabilitation. I am independently licensed as a professional counselor in KY and MO. I practice primarily from an existential-humanistic approach while also utilizing evidence-based therapies that are the most effective for treating the specific disorders, symptoms, or behaviors with which the individual presents. Aside from practicing therapy, I have a special interest in multiculturalism, social justice, and advocacy work. I believe extraneous social factors also have an impact on our emotional well-being, so I am involved in activism work that I believe will assist in changing the lives of people I serve.

We often have what we need within us to heal, but sometimes anxiety, depression, trauma, or internal conflict can get in our way from using that knowledge to make the progress that we want to feel. Have you been trying to wake up on time but depression gets in your way? Or, have you been wanting to start or complete projects but have been procrastinating? Therapy can help you cope with the stressful things in your life, so that you can move forward in how you want to.
