I am accepting new adult individual clients and specialize in anxiety treatment. I equip clients with tools to maintain change.
Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Newport, KY
I chose to specialize in Anxiety treatment because improvement can nearly be guaranteed. Neuroscientists know much about what's going on in the brain when anxiety and panic are occurring. Because of that, there are many effective treatment options. I have nearly completed credentialing as a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional, equipping me to treat all anxiety disorders, panic, phobias and OCD. My clients have seen significant improvement and I look forward to helping you as well.
I was trained in CBT in my graduate studies and continued to develop my skills using this approach throughout my 5+ years of practice. I've seen this form of therapy bring incredible change to clients in a short amount of time. This is consistent with numerous research studies that suggest CBT leads to significant improvement in functioning and quality of life, and is as effective as, or even more effective than, other forms of psychological therapy or medications.
Whatever your type of transition, I can help you navigate it. I have worked with clients who are transitioning through many events and phases of life: post-school to work/independence/adulting, pregnancy/post-partum, single-parenting, career changes, unemployment, acculturation, relocation, mid-life, retirement, relationship changes, return to work post-maternity leave and more.
With a tendency towards stress myself, I have studied many techniques to manage and minimize stress throughout my professional career as a mental health therapist. I have worked with clients dealing with stress resulting from relationships, health, spirituality, transitions, task-orientation, expectations, perfectionism, same-sex attraction and more. Additionally, I worked in the business field for 6 years, so I closely understand job stress and pressures from startup to corporate settings.
