My Background

I am a Kentucky native, having lived in the Central Kentucky area my whole life.  I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Social Work at the University of Kentucky, my Master of Science in Social Work at the University of Louisville, and my Ph.D. in Social Work from the University of Kentucky.  I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, as well as a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, and have experience working in residential, inpatient, and outpatient services for mental health and substance abuse.   

My Approach & Philosophy

Many people struggle to cope with everyday issues such as anxiety, depression, grief, low self-esteem, substance use, relationship difficulties, or trauma.  I work with individuals using talk therapy to help them process their experiences and uncover any underlying issues.  I use a strengths-based approach to help clients recognize and leverage the skills and knowledge they have, while helping them learn new coping skills and gain new insights and perspectives about their challenges.  My goal is to provide a compassionate, supportive, and non-judgmental space for clients to share their story and begin to heal and find new hope and meaning in their life.
