About me

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.
Best Regards
Rebecca
