I am a licensed professional clinical counselor and trained in many different therapy approaches and experienced with all age groups.

Hello, I’m so glad you are here! In 2017 I graduated with my masters degree in clinical counseling and gained clinical experience in many areas with both children and adults. I opening a private practice in 2021 and specialize in the treatment of stress management, anxiety, depression, mood issues, poor self esteem, and trauma. I provide each client with a unique experience tailored to their own needs and goals. As a part of treatment I help the client identify their goals and take steps to become the best version of themselves. I promise to always provide unconditional positive regard, empathy and support.

I am trained in many treatment approaches of solution-focused, CBT, DBT, ACT, play therapy techniques, sandtray therapy, and EMDR. I am always looking to expand my knowledge and bring the most evidenced based and up to date treatments to my clients. I also love to incorporate somatic therapy and healing of not only the mind but the body as well through mindfulness, meditations, and visualization practices.

I offer both in person (Kentucky residents) and online telehealth therapy. I am licensed in Kentucky, Florida and Idaho. I also accept a variety of insurance which include; Aetna, Anthem, Cigna, Optum and Kentucky Medicaid.
