Announcement icon I am currently providing teletherapy appointments only. Please call our office or send an email to schedule an appointment.
I believe that every person has the capacity for change and authentic living. I also believe that no one gets there alone.
I have experience helping individuals with a wide variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, impulse control, grief, self-harm and trauma. I enjoy working with people of all ages, but specialize in services to children, adolescents, and their families.
I utilize a person-centered, strengths-based approach that values each person’s unique experiences and abilities. It is an honor any time someone invites me to walk with them on their journey. If you would like to schedule a time to meet, please call our office or schedule online at www.counselinglexingtonky.com.
