Life isn’t always easy. Sometimes even the strongest people amongst us need a little bit of help to work through some of life’s more challenging problems. Everyone has battles to fight and hurdles to overcome at some point. Whether you struggle with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, or any other issue, you should know that there is hope for a better tomorrow.
You might initially feel hesitant about seeking help and support for personal matters, but when you do, you will feel confident that you are taking a courageous step toward getting to a better place and being a better you.
My practice in Louisville specializes in treating anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and helping individuals and families, during and after divorce. I provide therapy for adolescents struggling with depression, anxiety, and self-harm (cutting). As a Registered Play Therapist, I provide counseling for children, offering assistance with behavioral problems, school challenges, and peer issues.
I am a trained Brainspotting therapist, which can help with trauma based conditions, as well as being very effective in treating anxiety, and depression. It also is very effective with somatic based issues, such as headaches and chronic pain.
Additionally, I offer family therapy and parent coaching. Family therapy can help the whole family work together more cooperatively, as a cohesive whole, learning healthier communication skills. Parents today are confronted with so many more choices and additional challenges, that it can be overwhelming. As a Counselor, I can offer you parenting support and coaching, so that you can be the parent you want to be!
