My Approach to Helping

Hello! My name is Tera Hicks. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Kentucky and Ohio. I am a very person centered, here and now therapist that believes in helping people achieve and become their best selves. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to treatment methods and tools utilized to support clients in therapy. Each client is unique and I use the treatment methods that best help clients achieve their goals. I offer empathetic and personable individualized therapeutic services utilizing different theoretical orientations. You will have the opportunity to freely express yourself in a safe and non-judgmental space. To help you achieve your goals and make positive changes in your life, I will also gently challenge you to be receptive to new perspectives on your healing journey. If you are ready to find your pathway to healing, reach out to schedule an appointment today!

I work well with individuals from all walks of life as I have struggled and fumbled in some of the same walks. I work well with anxiety and mood disorders, as well as have spent many years working in the addiction field. I am comfortable in working with anyone that is motivated to challenge their own biases. You can expect to come away from sessions knowing that you have an empathetic, caring, and gentle but challenging therapist who wants to support you as much as possible to help you achieve your goals. I was attracted to the mental health field due to my own personal struggles and the struggles of my close family members. I am driven to continue to work in this field in order to de-stigmatize mental health and show people that life is possible, despite the struggle.

I believe every aspect of the treatment process should be client centered. Who else knows you better than you know yourself? I believe the client should have their voices heard so that achieving goals is achievable, specific and measurable. As we journey through life, we all come to a point where we struggle with adversities, and we don't know where to start to find a solution. We also feel alone and as if no one will understand what we are going through. If you’re struggling to cope with life and feel you have nowhere else to turn, I can help you navigate these feelings and aid you in finding a path forward towards healing. Don't let your struggles become your identity. I challenge you take that first step with me. You are a beautiful soul who deserves the most out of your life. You also deserve to work with a therapist who values helping others succeed and gain greater awareness.
