I use TBRI with children, parents, and the whole family unit to help with the connection, empowering, and correcting of children and various behaviors they express. TBRI stands for Trust-Based Relational Intervention. It is an evidence-based therapeutic approach that is designed to help children and families who have experienced trauma, abuse, or neglect. TBRI focuses on building trust and promoting healthy attachment relationships.



I am a private pay counselor which allows more freedom and client directed sessions in the comforts of a low-trafficked office. While I do not accept insurance, I can provide you with a superbill, which you can submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement.

What is a private pay counselor?


Yes, I offer teletherapy sessions for Kentucky-based clients who are unable to come to the office in-person. Teletherapy sessions are only available to clients within the state of Kentucky.

The length of therapy can vary depending on a number of factors, including the nature of the issue being addressed, the individual's goals for therapy, the therapist's approach and techniques, and the individual's progress. In some cases, therapy may only last a few sessions, while in other cases, it may continue for several months or even years.

It's important to note that therapy is not a one-size-fits-all solution, and the length of therapy will be unique to each individual's needs and circumstances. For some people, a short-term, focused approach may be appropriate, while for others, a longer-term, more in-depth approach may be necessary.

Ultimately, the length of therapy will be determined by the individual and their therapist, based on their progress and the goals they hope to achieve through therapy. It's important to be open and honest with your therapist about your expectations and goals, and to communicate regularly about your progress and any concerns or challenges you may be facing. This can help ensure that you are getting the most out of your therapy experience and that you are on track to achieving your desired outcomes.

How long will I need therapy?


Your first therapy session will typically involve a discussion about your reasons for seeking therapy, your current emotional state, and any goals you may have for therapy. As your therapist, I may also ask you some questions about your personal history and background to better understand your situation. 

Yes, therapy often involves discussing personal information, including your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. However, it's important to remember that therapy is a safe and confidential space, and your therapist is there to support you.

What can I expect to experience during my first therapy session?


If you want to get the most out of therapy, it's important to take an active role in your own healing process. Here are some tips to help you support yourself during your therapy journey:

Be open and honest with your therapist: In order for therapy to be effective, it's important to be honest and open with your therapist about your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. This can be difficult at times, but it's essential for building trust and developing a strong therapeutic relationship.

Set realistic goals: Work with your therapist to set achievable goals for your therapy journey. This will help you stay focused and motivated, and give you a sense of progress and accomplishment as you work towards your goals.

Practice self-care: Therapy can be emotionally challenging, so it's important to take care of yourself outside of therapy sessions. Make time for activities that bring you joy and relaxation, like exercise, meditation, or spending time with loved ones.

Keep a journal: Writing down your thoughts and feelings can help you process and reflect on what you're learning in therapy. Try journaling regularly to track your progress and identify any patterns or insights that emerge.

Be patient and kind to yourself: Healing is a journey, and it's important to be patient and kind to yourself along the way. Recognize that therapy takes time and effort, and celebrate your progress and accomplishments, no matter how small.

Remember, therapy is a collaborative process, and your therapist is there to support you on your journey towards better mental health and well-being. By taking an active role in your own healing process, you can get the most out of therapy and make positive changes in your life.
