Kentucky is known for its bourbon and the Kentucky Derby, a horse race that has millions gathering to watch it every year. Your mental health can be like your horse. If you take good care of it, it can gallop fast and win the race. If left uncared for, it can be slow and falling behind. 

A counselor can be a way to meet all your horse’s needs and give you a leg up in your race for great mental health.

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you" Maya Angelou. Words have power, words build the world around us, your story has power. As a clinician I do not just treat depression, anxiety, trauma etc. I treat the person experiencing the symptoms of those diagnoses. I want to know your story, to help you regain control of your story, & help you write the next chapters of your life with joy instead of fear, frustration, or negativity. Trauma is my specialty, however I treat most mental health disorders - particularly depression, anxiety, bipolar...
