My Approach to Helping
I come from a secular background and am LGBTQ welcoming and affirming.
Whether you have experienced a recent setback or are trying to come to terms with an ongoing struggle, my goal is to be an unbiased listener providing reflective and direct feedback to help you gain insight and clarity. I am intensively trained in DBT and utilize an eclectic approach to treatment. I love using humor in sessions and encourage clients to find what brings them joy, even in dark times. I specialize in working with those who struggle with trauma, relationships, eating disorders, and life transitions.
I have over 12 years of experience in the mental health field and help clients navigate boundaries, communication, and trauma. I enjoy working with monogamous, ethical non-monogamy, poly, and open relationships.
I am a licensed clinician in Kentucky, Ohio, Massachusetts, and North Carolina. I provide online counseling to all residents of each state and in-person counseling in Newport, Ky. I do not take insurance but can provide a superbill for out-of-network benefits.
