Kandace Barkham


About me

I am a licensed LCSW/LCADCA in Kentucky with 6 years of clinical work experience and over 10 years of working with various populations. I have experience in helping clients heal through stress, anxiety, substance abuse, childhood/lifetime trauma, PTSD, borderline personality, depression, self-esteem, family conflict, and anger management. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment/shame. Authenticity and acceptance of self is a super power that allows you to accomplish amazing things. I am very familiar with TFCBT, DBT, REBT, ACT, CBT, Somatic Bodywork, Mindfulness, and MI. I specialize in Trauma/Addiction with a focus on skill-building and self-compassion. I am sex-positive and inclusive in sessions. Taking the steps to seek a better life can be scary and hard. We can be afraid and do hard things at the same time. I am here to support you in that process and help you embrace how beautiful life can be.
