About me

I am a LPCC in Kentucky with over 6 years of experience working as a treatment director and therapist of a mental health facility. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, DMDD, ODD, PTSD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse and I am certified for TF-CBT and working on the trauma narrative. I have worked with all ages which includes children (6-12), adolescents (13-20), and adults.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I like to tell jokes and make others laugh because sometimes laughter is the best medicine but Iam also direct and will challenge you to be a better version of yourself. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, person centered and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

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 support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Jason has been very effective in helping me identify the triggers of my anxiety and anger and subsequently use coping mechanisms to dispel any strong psychological reaction.
