Licensed Clinical Social Worker

My approach

I believe all people have skills to navigate life’s stressful times, and I help people enhance these skills and develop new ones.

I support people in building healthy relationships and creating lives worth living.  I am experienced in treating people struggling with mood disorders, personality disorders, trauma – both past and present, grief and loss issues, and substance use disorders.

I don’t take a cookie-cutter approach to your treatment. Therapy is tailored to you based on treatment models I have found effective in my practice. My primary clinical approach has a foundation in

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).


My sessions are all conducted using telehealth. When the pandemic is more under control, I will offer in-person sessions again.

Credentials and experience

A native of Danville, Kentucky, I earned my BA and Master of Social Work degree at the University of Kentucky College of Social Work. I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW).

I am also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).

I’ve worn many hats in my nearly 30 years as a professional social worker.

Some of the difficulties I work with include

  • recovery from substance abuse and addiction,
  • trauma,
  • grief,
  • personality disorders,
  • depression and anxiety,
  • general life stressors,
  • problem solving,
  • marital and family conflict,
  • foster care and adoption issues.

You can never leave footprints that last if you are always walking on tiptoe.
