**Currently accepting new Humana and private pay clients; currently seeing clients in person.** As a marriage and family therapist, I am passionate about helping adolescents, individuals, and couples put their fear in its place so that they can go about the business of living! I believe in helping people break out of painful emotional ruts and destructive thought patterns that are holding them back. I help individuals discover their own voice, their own boundaries, and improve their communication and connectivity to self and others. Embedded within each of us is the ability to grow and discover our authenticity and power.

Additionally, I have experience in treating veterans.

I want to help you feel empowered to find balance in your life so you can overcome any challenges you may face and ultimately find the joy and happiness you desire!
I enjoy working with children, teens, and their families to achieve their goals through supporting healthier and happier relationships. Clients often tell me that our work has helped them to sort through their thoughts and feelings to gain clarity, to grow, to learn about themselves, to develop confidence, and to feel empowered to make important decisions. I employ a flexible approach tailored to the needs of each client. I use an eclectic approach to therapy, guided by the needs of the client. When trust is established, change happens.
I provide counseling services to adults, couples and families. I work with a wide variety of issues and employ counseling techniques that best fit the needs of my client. My goal as a therapist is to help individuals develop the skills needed to enrich their lives. I have completed Level 2 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy. I use Gottman Method Couples Therapy in my therapy work with couples during marriage and couples counseling.
I provide treatment to people who have addictions, their adult family members and people who have depression, bi-polar illness, or anxiety disorders. I look forward to seeing people create a healthy life and find their dreams.
My commitment to you, is that you will feel completely heard, understood, and feel that we are working together to accomplish your goals. When we are done with our time together, I aim for you to feel encouraged, ready to move forward toward your goals, and that you have the tools with which to accomplish that. No matter what you might be facing, I can offer support and likely more tools with which to successfully cope. Together, I know we can get you to a point of peace and enjoying life just as you should be able to. And you will feel capable to deal with life moving forward.
I am invested in helping others lead more fulfilling and meaningful lives. No human being is immune from experiencing hardship and pain. I provide a confidential and safe environment to address important issues and concerns. Everyone suffers. No one should suffer alone.
Seeking professional help for your mental health is a huge step towards building a healthy, peaceful life. It can be scary and intimidating, so take time to reward yourself for this decision. I believe that my role as a counselor is to give you the tools for you to use to manage stress and hardship in your life. Oftentimes, we feel powerless and out of control in times of stress. My counseling sessions incorporate Cognitive Behavioral components to help you feel in control over your emotions and thoughts. You are the expert on yourself—you know your goals and your vision for your life. I can work with you to accomplish your goals.
I am a Bilingual (Spanish/English) Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in Kentucky. I have a Masters Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. My specializations are focused on depression, anxiety, trauma, stress management, domestic abuse, substance abuse and life transition. I bring a transparent, honest, and easy-going approach.
You are likely hear because you are in pain. Or maybe because you have questions about getting help. My therapy style is built around our relationship, and through that relationship I promote trust, growth, and ultimately change. As my client you will will not feel judged or alone. You will, however, feel respected and validated. Affirmed. And challenged to look at your life. You will decide what you would like to change, and then we will set your goals together. I will walk alongside you as we look for the best version of yourself.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 30 years experience as a therapist in private practice. Prior to my practice I served as a Protective Service Specialist, Juvenile Delinquency Specialist and Juvenile Court Liaison Specialist for the state of Kentucky. I worked with families and children dealing with abuse, depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress. I especially enjoy working with troubled and challenging adolescents. I see many ADHD adults and as well as ADHD children. I have developed a Psychotherapeutic Horseback Riding Program for all ages. This program has benefited those who are shy and withdrawn.
I believe therapy is most helpful when it combines introspection and self-discovery with planning and action. My goal as a therapist is to assist my client in exploring the "stuff" that seems to be getting in the way in his or her life. Once we know what the roadblocks are, they become easier to navigate or overcome. This work often leads to new personal insights or changes that serve to bring you closer to your personal goals.
