Living authentically and compassionately leads to inner peace. Trauma and distress can cause a plethora of confusing responses, making that peace seem unobtainable. Each person brings their own worldview, experiences, strengths and clues to unburdening oneself from the overwhelm. Healing and moving forward can seem daunting. Therapy transforms the mind-body system, leading to self-energy and clarity. Now also offering training for schools and organizations on becoming trauma-informed!

I have training in many evidence-based practices including CBT, Trauma Focused CBT, and EMDR.
I believe that everyone tries to get through life the best they can. Yet many of us find ourselves struggling to meet our goals, improve our relationships, or we just don’t feel happy. My approach to therapy is to work together in understanding what is preventing you from feeling your best, finding ways to help you feel better, and letting you know you are not alone in the process.

Investing in your mental and emotional health can save your life. Addressing patterns, healing past wounds and current losses can be challenging; however, once we make the decision to work through our fears, we will find relief and empowerment along the way. The most important part of my journey with you is to help you practice self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-growth. The work we do can help with managing symptoms/traits of anxiety, depression, stress-related issues, addictions, and codependency.

NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Let's talk about trauma. How common is it? The National Center on PTSD estimates 60% of men and 50% of women will experience at least one trauma in their lifetime. Experiencing trauma isn't a rare event, it can happen to anyone. Common reactions to traumatic experiences include feeling detached or numb, feeling on guard, experiencing nightmares or unwanted thoughts about the trauma, and going out of your way to avoid reminders of the event. If you’ve been through something in your past, and you can’t seem to escape it in the present, you have the power to stop it from disrupting your future.

These last few years (or more) have not been for the faint of heart. This season of your life may be a time when you are feeling challenged in all directions, struggling to let go of the past, or noticing some harmful patterns returning. At a deeper level, you want to feel heard, and seen for who you are and what you believe you can still become. Therapy provides a space for you to do just that, building a life that is fulfilling, acknowledging the past, and then getting excited to build a life you know is worth living. I am excited you’re here and considering this next part of the journey.

I am a doctoral student at the University of Kentucky in the Department of Education and the Center for Research on Counseling Education. My research focuses on mood disorders, with a specific focus on understudied populations such as individuals with disabilities. I believe that when a counselor recognizes the more significant contextual issues which affect the client's well-being, advocacy in combination with behavioral therapy can be an appropriate intervention for the client.

During this Covid Safe at Home time, all sessions are conducted via telehealth. Sessions range from 30 minutes (younger clients) to 60 minutes. Insurance companies continue to cover tele-health during this time, so there should not be an additional charge outside of your typical co-pay. For children under 8, I work with parents and caregivers using Child Parent Relationship Therapy. This allows me to work individually with parents to teach skills so that you may work with your child at home. These skills are lifelong skills, which most find to be extremely helpful!

I love working with young adults (20s/30s) who are interested in experiencing more authenticity, freedom, and joy. I provide a safe space to process the fears that hold you back from living your most authentic life and will help you soothe and comfort the wounded parts of yourself that act out in fear to stop you from being fully you. We'll talk about how your less authentic behaviors are your way of trying to protect yourself from pain or rejection and discuss whether these protective measures are still necessary in your current situation. My goal is to help you develop more compassion, gentleness, and love towards yourself.

Asking for help can be hard. Taking care of yourself must be a priority in order to efficiently care for others. I decided to obtain a Doctorate in Social Work because I have been on both sides: seeking help and being the helper. Let me be your helper! I bring a unique blend of education, training, and life experience that I think will help you to define and meet your goals. We'll start with a safe place and then begin our work on whatever issues you bring. I'm looking forward to meeting you!
