I am a trauma informed therapist and love to integrate CBT, and DBT skills to help empower you to overcome the personal obstacles brought you here to therapy. I’m also someone who understands the impact of trauma on the brain, body, and soul. Whether it's "big-T Trauma" or "little-t trauma;" your feelings are valid.
I am licensed in Kentucky with 12 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, & depression. I also have experience working with coping with life changes. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!
Together we will decide on the best way we can work to get you to where you want to be. I will meet you where you are; I will listen and walk with you on your healing journey.
