I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who believes that to have a successful outcome in therapy, the client and therapist must first build a strong rapport. Once that foundation is laid, I will use one of several therapeutic modalities, depending on the issue at hand. These modalities may include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, and Psychotherapy. An Integrated approach can be utilized as well.
I have my Master's in Social Work, the advanced clinical License for LCSW, and recently I achieved the goal of becoming a Certified Dementia Specialist.
I have worked in many modalities. Individual Therapy, Medical/Surgical, High-Risk pregnancy and miscarriages, Inpatient Psychiatric help, and Rehab.
My husband and I have moved 11 times, so each job was a new learning adventure, and the stress of moving and helping children adjust something I well understand.
Some of my strengths are being a good listener, caring, sensitive, and energetic. Not only do I have the necessary credentials, experience, and hours to be licensed, but I also has a lifetime of experience and wisdom to draw from, which is invaluable!
Lately, I have been working with caregivers that are taking care of their elderly parents and their children, while trying to have a life. It's a tough job! There are other areas that are prevalent now: such as your expectations of yourself: For example, "All my friends are married and having kids and I'm not, I feel alone". Another common one is, "my kids have left home....I have lost my identity, what do I do". Lastly, a big one is " my family/friends do not approve/understand of my partner/career choice/lifestyle/choice". Each one of these have taken prominence in our culture in the last 15 years and it can be difficult to navigate.
I have heard people say that, "Your perception is your reality". What if you don't even know what that perception is? That's where we can work together.
Personally I love yoga, digging in my yard, mindfulness, and University of Kentucky Basketball! 2 of my 3 kids went to UK. So Go Big Blue!
Please let me know any questions or concerns and I would be happy to help.

Rebecca is a wonderful therapist. She really cares. She has given me the tools to work through what was hopefully the worst year of my life. She is always on my side and validates my feelings. I would highly recommend her as a therapist.
