About me

I am a Licensed Psychological Practitioner based in Kentucky with over 12 years of experience working with adults experiencing mental health symptoms. I work with clients who have a wide range of concerns including Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, PTSD, and anxiety. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My therapy style is to engage clients in a working partnership where together we will identify your needs and goals to help you live your best life. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and problem-solving therapy. I will tailor our dialog to meet your unique and specific needs. Together we will develop a treatment plan based on your goals for therapy.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to walk along side you.

I look forward to working with you!

Absolutely love her! Anita and I only worked together a short time, but it was nice to have someone to talk with and she gave me realistic exercises to help cope with my issues that I am facing.
