About Me

Hi! My name is Missy Heath and I am a KY Board Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Clinical Alcohol & Drug Counselor. I received my Masters of Science in Social Work from Spalding University in 1999. I have spent 22 years in the field of helping others, where I have extensive experience in working with individuals, families, and couples. My personality is warm, interactive, and non-judgmental. I believe in building strong rapport with my clients in an authentic and trusting environment. I teach MSW courses that include Psychopharmacology, Change Theory, and Solution-Focused Treatments. I am an active listener and will supply tools and interactive dialogue to help you succeed in improving your current behavioral health status. I also have experience working with chronically ill patients and care partners dealing with compassion fatigue.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling, quality of life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Missy has truly been a God sent angel! Through our many conversations over the last several months, she has been so kind, encouraging, transparent, and has truly been such a positive light in my life. After becoming a young widow then loosing my mother to cancer, I had thought I would never experience healing. Missy has helped me develop many skills to be able to better cope with my grief, depression, and anxiety. Through her challenging me and her insightful perspective, I have felt better than I have in 4 years and embracing the new version of myself that has blossomed after experiencing great traumatic loss. Missy, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your kindness. I praise God for this new exciting chapter and I am so thankful for you helping me turn the page. ❤️

Missy is such a blessing! She is so easy to talk to, and so interested. She offers so MUCH that I have never got out of 13 years of therapy. I am healing.

Missy Heath has provided me with a safe space to talk through a variety of issues I am working through-- grief, mother issues, etc. She has been a light. She is encouraging, laid back, and has so much insight to offer!
