About My Clients

My clients are children, teens, and adults experiencing a wide range of concerns. I am experienced with treating anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, communication problems, trauma, grief/loss, and adjustment/transition issues. I am especially interested in working with adolescents, mothers during the perinatal/postpartum period, and those living with chronic health diagnoses.

My Background and Approach

Prior to becoming a therapist, I spent years as a school-based social worker in various settings across Kentucky. This position afforded me the opportunity to connect with children and teens, recognizing that their mental health needs are just as significant and diverse as those of the adults we treat every day. I pursued a degree in clinical social work for the express purpose of learning how to better address those concerns in a therapeutic setting. My own experiences with parenthood and navigating chronic illness/diagnosis also make me very passionate about working with clients experiencing the same. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Person-Centered Therapy (PCT), and Relational Therapy techniques in conjunction with mindfulness and grounding practices to help clients accept and cope with the challenges they face. This eclectic perspective allows room for the client to play an active role in their therapeutic journey.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that every person brings a unique perspective to the therapeutic relationship and that their experiences have immense value. I support marginalized populations as an ally to the LGBTQ+ community as well as standing in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. I'm a proud feminist and hold a personal faith that leaves room for everyone. You are not just welcome in my practice; you are WANTED.
