I have been helping people achieve their therapeutic goals for over 18 years. Each person is unique, so a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy just won't do. That's why I use an integrative, therapeutic approach which is tailored to the individual and includes: Problem Solving; Structural Techniques; Inter-relational Techniques; Cognitive Techniques; Family-Of-Origin Issues and Individual Developmental Issues. I have experience working with a variety of issues and I especially enjoy helping people manage their relationships. You will find me to be friendly and non-judgmental, but firm in my commitment to help you strive towards your goals. Let's work together to get you on a better path so you can live your life more abundantly.

LIVE SESSIONS: Tuesdays and Wednesdays 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. CST **Some evening appointments are occasionally available.** ASYNCHRONISTIC MESSAGING: Monday-Thursday 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. CST I will check messages once in the morning and once in the later afternoon. I will check more frequently when time allows. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Kentucky with over 13 years of experience as a clinical counselor. I have worked with clients with various concerns over the years. I am most passionate about helping people discover and embrace their personal power to cultivate positive change and create their most meaningful life. I enjoy working with people who have a good life but recognize they may need to more fully tap into their personal power to make positive change and bring that “missing” something into reality. My approach is practical, interactive and empowering. I believe that what happens outside of a therapy session is significant to a successful outcome of therapy. That is why my approach includes practical homework for outside of therapy sessions. Real change happens in small, realistic steps-and my passion is helping you find your unique steps and supporting you while you take those steps. My intention is that anyone who works with me is inspired, motivated, and empowered to do what is needed to accomplish their most important goals. I believe everyone needs to be treated with compassion, kindness, and respect. I do not support stigmatizing or marginalizing labels. I approach each person as unique, valued, and believe everyone brings their own wisdom along with questions and goals to the therapeutic process. I have a diverse background in personal growth and self-discovery approaches, including Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Transactual Analysis, Therapeutic Story Telling, and Object Relations. I also have studied Eastern Based Philosophies and Energy Therapies like Reiki and Buddhism. I enjoy creative, holistic approaches to personal growth and self-discovery, including integrating all I know customized for the person’s unique needs and goals. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling, happier life and to take the first steps toward change. I am here to support and empower you if you are ready to take that step. ***PLEASE REMEMBER: BetterHelp or a specialty site is not appropriate if you are in a crisis situation or in immediate need of support.

30 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a licensed psychologist and therapist in Kentucky with over 25 years of clinical experience. As a PhD clinical psychologist, I have a comprehensive education and ongoing relevant training. Therapy involves discussing significant life problems with a trusted professional in a private, accepting space. Most of us don't openly talk about our problems. We sometimes have parts ourselves that we rarely share with anyone. Therapy can be a place for us to talk honestly about ourself. This simple act can bring relief, self-awareness, and confidence. The goal is to create a meaningful life --a life worth living. Each client is different. My therapy approach can differ too, depending on the individual and the situation. I will always ask questions about your life and childhood. Often, I'll nudge you to try understanding your world differently or to do some things differently. Therapy sessions typically last a little less than an hour and occur once a week. I find that our meeting regularly maintains continuity and momentum. However, you are the one who ultimately decides how often we meet. After each session, I will spend time reflecting on what we discussed and may return to these matters later. I'll ask you to reflect on our discussion between sessions too. We can message each other through the BetterHelp app for updates and support. Online therapy is as effective as traditional face-to-face therapy. I have found BetterHelp to be a good and fair provider-- I would not be here otherwise. As with anything involving money, understand the details of your BetterHelp services--sessions, weeks, billing, etc. I am not involved with that aspect of the program and will refer you to others with those questions. For those exploring therapy for the first time -- welcome! For those facing specific problems or wanting a deeper understanding of themselves, therapy may last a number of weeks or months. I won't push for more sessions than necessary. My goal is for you to lead a contented life without therapy. We will not attempt to fix everything. However, I'm optimistic that with effort, meaningful changes are possible.

Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Hollyvilla or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Hollyvilla therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Hollyvilla due to a higher cost of living.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Hollyvilla?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Hollyvilla therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Hollyvilla therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Hollyvilla therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Hollyvilla therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in KY, therapists may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 40118 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Hollyvilla counselor?

Before seeing your Hollyvilla therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Hollyvilla.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Hollyvilla licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Hollyvilla counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Hollyvilla, Kentucky can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Hollyvilla has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
