You thought your relationship would bring you joy and happiness. Instead, you feel desperate and hopeless. The person you expected to bring you the most love and joy has hurt you. I’m so sorry, but there is hope! Let me say it again: There is hope. Hope for your troubled relationship to be transformed into what you've always dreamed it would be: a happy and fulfilling marriage. The warmth of family harmony. The unshakable bond between a parent and a child. It’s still possible to have these. It may feel and seem impossible, but through therapy you can work towards the having the relationships you've always dreamed about.
We would all enjoy an opportunity to make a wish that would quickly solve our problems and improve our lives. Making a wish and having a dream renews hope for living. I believe that therapy is about renewing hope for your life. At Wishing Tree Counseling, I use a client-centered therapeutic approach that incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and canine therapy when working with my clients.
“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued.” This quote, by Brené Brown, has become a centerstone for the beginning of a healthy therapeutic relationship for my practice. I believe connection is the foundation for positive growth.

I love my work and enjoy offering my clients a safe and supportive environment for them to grow and explore themselves. My style is both conversational and relational. I offer an authentic presence within a collaborative, understanding relationship in which self-discovery can be non-threatening and perhaps, even fun. I am committed to sharing everything I know which I believe will help heal the difficulties in one's life. I am inspired each day by the courage clients have each moment they show up for therapy. I became a therapist because, to me, the value in life comes when you return to your value within.
Thank you for visiting the Griffin-Lyons Counseling site. My name is Willie Boddie, and I have been practicing clinical social work in central Kentucky since 2000.

My practice currently focuses on adults with the aforementioned mental health concerns, parenting concerns, and LBGTQ related concerns.
People come to therapy because they want to feel better. It might be relationship problems or anxiety/depression, but whatever the reason, life has become uncomfortable or painful. Most people want more understanding of themselves and their situation. That being said, change is what we all seek in therapy. Making your life work better is the goal. I focus on altering self-defeating ways, gaining perspective, and increasing insight that leads to change. The result is an improved quality of life.

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, MEd, LPCC-S
I work with adolescents, adults, children, couples, families, and groups. As a counselor, I believe the most important element in treatment is the relationship between the therapist and the client. Utilizing this relationship we can work together to address many of life's challenges. It is my goal to help clients learn coping skills in a supportive, warm and nonjudgmental environment. My experience includes working with trauma survivors, mood disorders, depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders and family conflict while focusing on relapse prevention.
I believe, as a therapist and social worker, in the dignity and worth of every individual. I utilize a client-centered and empowerment based approach, that focuses on improving client self-perception and growth through the challenges they face. I work with my clients to identify goals, make positive changes, and build strong coping skills for the future, and overall lasting wellness. I have experience working with LGBTQI+ populations. I work with children, adolescents, and adults, with a variety of diagnosis ranging from mood disorders, to personality disorders, to psychotic disorders, and beyond.
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.
We all have an internal pressure cooker that holds strong feelings and repressed emotions. This is especially true with today’s adolescents and teenagers. When anxiety, fear, depression, and outside stressors fill their barometer up, they reach a boiling point of eruption that plays out in extreme anger, defiance, substance abuse, addictions to social media and screens, overeating, and other destructive behaviors.
