About me

I am a clinical social worker with a Doctorate in Social Work and a license as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Kentucky and Indiana. I also am certified in the treatment of addiction.
I bring fifty years of professional experience to my practice. My experience includes helping individuals in coping with addictions, relationship issues, trauma, and intimacy related issues. I also have conducted couples therapy with a focus upon intimate relationship enrichment.
I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will involve you in individual treatment or as a couple in assessment and treatment planning decisions to meet your specific needs.
It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. I am here to support & empower you individually or as a couple in that journey.

Dr Whorley is extremely good and thorough at his job. He listens to you and will give you many ways to help you handle your situation. He makes sure to let you know that you have been heard and will tell you a story from his life that he had a similar situation, that will make you know that your not alone in the situation and that other people have and may be going through the same thing. He is very comforting and I had always left in a better mood and with a smile on my face after our sessions. I highly recommend Dr.

He has given me things that I can use to help me recognize triggers and coping skills. Suggestions that he has given like attending a group session has helped me relax more. We stay in contact through out the week so he can monitor me. BetterHelp platform is turning out to work with my schedule.
