I work with adults and couples on a variety of things, frequently treating issues related to attachment, identity, and trauma (ie intergenerational trauma, racial trauma, ptsd, etc.). I often work with clients who have a diagnosis or symptoms of ADHD, anxiety, and depression or experience high stress. I also enjoy working with fellow members of the queer community and have a passion for providing an affirming and inclusive space for historically marginalized groups including, but not limited to POC, interracial couples, and/or women.

I specialize in working with teens and adults with addiction, gender identity/ LGBTQA + struggles, depression, C-PTSD, and generational trauma.
You were not born inherently flawed, and you were not born to suffer, but maybe somehow, somewhere along the way, your brain received this information and it has shaped the way you live your life. Feelings of isolation, guilt, shame, anger, and sadness have begun to feel inescapable, making it difficult to ask for/ accept help from others. You may feel trapped in a cycle of harmful and problematic behaviors , thoughts, relationships- you know something isn’t working, but can’t seem to figure out why or where to begin to start feeling better . Give yourself credit- you’ve already taken a big step forward, which brought you here.

I help LGBTQ + folks who struggle with anxiety, depression, and trauma to improve relationships with themselves and others. Perhaps you struggle with confidence issues, overthinking, depressive symptoms, & want a deeper connection. Maybe you're queer , trans , or gender variant and are ready to start working on stuff that gets in the way of your best life. Your goal is to improve self-esteem and self-love (living in the South ain't easy!). You're ready to work on patterns and pain that prevent you from connecting to others. Maybe you're feeling stuck and unsure how to come out, or need some support loving an LGBTQ + person in your life.

Do negative self-thoughts keep you from accepting yourself or achieving accomplishments? Have you struggled with feelings of shame? Are you tired of past experiences, including trauma, dictating how you approach life & relationships today? Are you critical of yourself? Have you been stuck on an artistic endeavor or project?

Current culture marginalizes lesbian , gay , bi-sexual and transgender persons by being judgmental and dismissive of their pain.
I work with clients who come to therapy with a wide range of issues to therapy, particularly those in the LGBTQ community. My experience has shown me that most people who come for therapy are often smarter than they think and braver than they can imagine. My role is as an a skilled and encouraging companion to help them recognize their own strength and wisdom. Clients who stay the course and work through the process, ultimately find their effort personally worthwhile. For a person to invite me to be part of a difficult time in their life is something i consider to be a privilege.

Our practice is dedicated to serving marginalized and diverse people, especially LGBTQ + individuals. We provide gender transition-related support, including referral letters for hormones and surgeries when needed. People are often nervous about their first therapy session.

What type of Louisville mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Louisville?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

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. 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?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
