I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in both Kentucky and Indiana with over twenty years of experience working with children, teens, adults, couples, and families. I am also a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator. My goal is to tailor treatment for clients based on their individual and family’s needs and strengths. I teach clients the skills needed to resolve current stressors and challenges and help clients identify where they feel stuck. Together we develop ways to move towards growth and healing.
Common issues I treat are depression, anxiety, grief and loss, perfectionism, parenting challenges, adjustment to life change issues, such as divorce. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness techniques to decrease negative thinking and improve resilience. Relational issues in couple and family therapy can be addressed through stress management, conflict resolution and communication building skills. I can teach parenting skills to improve connection, communication and consistency between family members.
My priority is to provide clients and their families with a safe environment where they are both challenged and supported to move towards positive change.
I received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Indianapolis, as well as a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. I have worked in a variety of settings including foster care, early intervention, in-home therapy, private practice and inpatient facility and have lived in the Louisville/Southern Indiana area most of my life. I am the parent of two teenagers, one who has Down Syndrome and hearing loss.
