(LCSW, LCADC, NSW-C)

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 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!
