Hi! My name is Candice and I am a licensed professional clinical counselor; holding my independent license in both Kentucky and Ohio. I have been working in the mental health field for over 7 years. I have served as both an individual and group counselor for people struggling with addictions, anxiety, depression, self esteem issues, communication troubles, family and/or relationship conflict, and much more. I have extensive knowledge in substance abuse issues, having worked with that population for nearly 5 years.
I obtained my bachelor's degree in anthropology and master's degree in clinical mental health counseling, both from Northern Kentucky University. I have always been interested in learning about people through their stories and decided to become a counselor in hopes of making a positive impact in people's lives.
I understand that seeking counseling can be a big (and sometimes scary) step, therefore I embrace my clients with kindness and without judgement. I enjoy assisting clients in identifying their own strength and using these to achieve the life they desire (and deserve). I do this by utilizing mostly CBT, ACT, and MBSR strategies, tailoring these to my client's needs.
I am grateful for the privilege to work along side of you as you take this step in your life!
