I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator. I enjoy working with children, teens, adult women, and families. After graduating from the University of Kentucky in 2002 with a Bachelor’s in Family Studies, I received my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in 2005.
With over 15 years of experience, I have worked in a variety of settings, including a residential treatment facility, foster care agency, private practice, school-based services, and a mental health practitioner in a public school.
I am loving and passionate about giving children an opportunity for their voices to be heard. I find excitement in helping families evoke positive change in their lives. It is a privilege to sit daily with adolescents and listen to their hearts. I desire to help you achieve your family goals. I like our time together to feel supportive, genuine, and non-judgmental.
I consider it sacred to create a safe place where we can discern together how to handle life’s difficult moments. It is my privilege to serve, encourage, and walk with you on this journey. My work is systemic, creative, client-driven, and solution-focused.
Throughout my time as a therapist, one thing has remained consistent: when a person learns how to build healthy connections, inner strengths, and positive self-esteem, they are more likely to believe in themself for exactly who they are and find workable solutions to the problems they are facing. It takes courage to seek change. I hope you find therapy empowering, reflective, and transforming.
