Hi and thanks for stopping by. We have a heart for kids that have experienced trauma and work with kids and their caregivers to process the "yucky stuff." We also work with caregivers and children to increase positive attachments and decrease negative attention seeking behaviors like angry outbursts, whining, defiance, and tantrums. We can provide coping skills and help try to re-frame thoughts of depression and anxiety.
In my 20-plus years in mental health, I have worked with individuals from ALL walks of life including prominent professionals, fellow clinicians, and a vast variety of others. This broad spectrum has taught me many valuable lessons, but one holds true; everyone can benefit from therapy at some point in their lives. In my experience, it is the client who recognizes a problem and is determined to correct it, who does the best in therapy. My primary goal is to meet you human to human in the most objective space possible. I can assure you a safe, confidential space with a compassionate ear.
People come to therapy for many different reasons -- anxiety, relationship difficulties, life transitions, trauma, and more. I believe that no problem is too small or too big to work with in the counseling relationship. Therapy allows us to bring our biggest fears and insecurities to light in a safe place and learn how to accept and deal with them, utilizing strengths we already have and learning new techniques to help alleviate suffering.
We all have tools we rely on to get through life, the problem is some of us have the wrong or broken tools. We keep trying to fix the problem with what we have, when what is needed is new tools. That is what you will find with me, the tools you need to tackle the issues you are facing.
Currently conducting telehealth sessions only. Making the decision to enter into counseling can leave you feeling overwhelmed, uncertain and fearful. It’s never easy to trust someone you just recently met and face difficult and painful parts of your life. When you take that first step into my office you will be met with a safe place free from judgment, an empathetic ear as well as my promise to support you through this process. I provide services for all ages as well as families and couples. I have experience with LGBTQ+ concerns, anxiety, depression, mood and personality disorders.
2020 has been such a difficult year. Not only have we faced unprecedented challenges due to Covid -19 but we have done so without our normal support systems due to quarantine, and subsequently, isolation. Tp Counseling wants you to know that you are not alone. We offer excellent therapeutic services to Kentucky residents. Our goal is to educate, restore, and empower our clients as they embark on their journey.
Hi! My name is Samantha and I am a Marriage and Family Therapy Intern. If you woke up tomorrow and life was exactly how you wanted it to be, how would you notice it was different than yesterday? What would you do to continue to live the life that you imagine with your partner, children, or even parents? I want to help you to find and how to put those choices in to practice using your strengths in order to change those ideas into habits. I believe the client and therapist relationship is a collaboration that uses your strengths in order to help you move toward your goals. I offer an open minded, non-judgmental environment.
Many families find themselves struggling with divorce and post-divorce related issues. My ideal client is looking for the "silver lining" in a difficult situation and may feel stuck, hopeless, powerless, angry, or fearful about the future.
I believe that everyone comes to a time in life when they face their own personal “truth in the room”. This can be as simple as private self-reflection or as complicated as trying to save a relationship or marriage. Maybe you have a child who is out of control or a sibling who suffers from substance abuse. Whatever brings you to therapy, know that it is my goal to partner with you as you work toward personal growth and wellness. Strong individuals are able to have strong relationships and healthy lives with meaning and purpose. My ideal client is one who is ready to explore "who they are and to do it on purpose".
Everyone has a story they want to tell, more than likely about how their life can be better than it is. In those stories are the goals they aspire for (better relationships, more self-esteem and achieving personal goals). If you want to help someone reach their goals you must first listen to their story. Only then can you walk with them towards a better tomorrow than they have today.
I have many years of experience working with early childhood trauma and severe, persistent mental illness, varying from ages of 5 years to 70+. My goal is to empower and advocate for positive change within you, as the individual, and the system as a whole. The place that we will create together is a safe and judgement free space. I work through an Existential foundation, to help those I work with seek meaning and purpose, with skills built from experience with Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and Cognitive Behavior Therapy, all within the context of a trauma-informed approach.
I believe that everyone needs a non-judgmental, trusting, and authentic individual to help facilitate growth and I feel honored to be a companion in someone’s journey towards growth, self-love, and increasing self-confidence. For each of my clients I want to offer them a safe space to share personal feelings, memories, thoughts, and other vulnerabilities to the extent they are willing to share. My goal is to strive to understand the unique experiences of each person and work collaboratively to create and work towards goals that best fit each person’s individual needs.
I provide an effective approach to counseling that is based on helping you in your specific circumstances. I understand that life is full of different seasons. Perhaps you’re feeling anxious or sad. Maybe you’re feeling unsure about the future of a relationship. Maybe you have experienced a loss. Or maybe you feel like there is something more that you ought to be doing in life. Whatever your needs or circumstances are, I am here to offer support. I view therapy as a process of personal growth and self-discovery. I look forward to meeting you!

Finding the right therapist is not a one-size-fits-all process. It is important to find someone who you feel connected with. For that reason I do not charge for the first session if, for any reason, you decide not to schedule a second session. (Only after a second session will I charge for both the first and second sessions.) My goal is to make this process as stress-free as possible for you. Much of my clinical experience has been focused on helping people resolve symptoms of depression, anxiety and trauma. Burnout and life/career transitions has also been a major presenting issue I've helped clients navigate and resolve.
“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.

You will begin to heal when you are in an environment that is safe and caring enough to allow you the confidence and courage to move forward.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Georgetown then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Georgetown, or Child Psychologists in Georgetown.
Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Georgetown psychologists specializing in EMDR.
What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Georgetown specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
