**Limited availability for new clients**Every person is unique in their own way, and as such, so are their problems. Therapy is a unique and special journey for every individual and couple, and it is my job to make sure I am there to help guide clients through this life experience. I strive to help individuals and couples break free from their feelings of despair, dissatisfaction, and dismay and regain or gain a sense of control, peace, and wholeness. I specialize in couples counseling helping partners find resolutions to their issues or concerns, while also developing/improving each individual's listening and communication skills.
My goal in therapy is to help an individual or couple understand their situation, explore changes they may want to make, and to work with them to find the means and resources to make it a reality.
It is a privilege to work in a field I love, and there is nothing more I would like better than an opportunity to help you find peace and a sense of relief in your life.

**Not accepting new clients.**Life can be overwhelming due to multiple reasons that may leave you feeling that there is no clear path. You may have considered therapy or wondered if it would be helpful to you. You may have talked yourself out of reaching out for help before, however, searching for a therapist is a step forward. Everyone deserves a safe space where you can speak with someone who is objective. I enjoy providing such a space to individuals. I will listen and work with you to help identify goals, barriers, and practical solutions. Every individual is exactly that, an individual, and has their own story and circumstances.
Therefore, I prefer to make a joint effort with the client to identify a strategy that will best meet the needs of the client. I hope to help my clients realize their own capabilities in a supportive environment. I have experience working with and providing therapy to children, adolescents, teenagers, and adults.
I have worked with children who have been placed in the foster care system and those that are going through the adoption process. I have worked with new mothers, as well as families dealing with grief and loss. Please do not hesitate to call for any questions.

I'm a lifelong Louisville resident that currently resides in Jeffersontown with my partner and our cat Professor Pierre. I'm a M.Ed. Counseling and Human Development student with Lindsey Wilson College. As someone that, at different times in my life, has sought out therapy I can appreciate how difficult taking that first step to reach out can be. I enjoy working with teens and young adults but will be happy to work with a wide-range of populations and adjust my treatment modalities to meet individual needs. I believe in a client/therapist relationship that helps you to be your best "you" by nurturing the tools and skills that already exist and helping you build a bigger "tool box" to work with.
“Most often, positive change and progression are more attainable when there is compassionate help and guidance along the way. Having a trusted friend who helps you stay accountable to yourself where goals are concerned, is often an important key to bettering your life and the relationships within. Allowing an educated professional to assist you on your journey is not only highly proactive, but also wise as you reach toward a greater degree of knowledge, growth and satisfaction.

**Limited availability for new clients.**As a wife and mother of 5, I am keenly aware of the many transitions individuals encounter throughout the life cycle, and how such changes can impact personal and relational functioning. I am very passionate about helping couples who have lost or are losing their connection, and also parents who are struggling to stay afloat as they navigate the difficulties of child-rearing. Assisting children through parental divorce, and counseling with adolescents and young adults discovering how to better themselves, are other tremendously rewarding areas of practice. I understand how deeply depression and anxiety can impact individuals both young and old and enjoy helping people uncover tools that can assist them as they combat such debilitating conditions.
I relish seeing clients smile and develop pride in their progress. It is my highest honor to hold their trust, offer helpful perspectives and share in the joy of their improvement.”

I know that life can be overwhelming, all the more so during these times, and it is my desire to help you experience life to the fullest. I believe everyone has value and a purpose and I would love the chance to help you discover yours.

Therapy is a safe place where individuals can be open and talk about their life and situations that may be difficult or uncomfortable to discuss. I take pride in meeting the client where they are in their journey of life. A main goal of mine is making the client feel comfortable and secure and to help them understand their situation. Most of my experience is working with kids and teenagers helping them navigate through life circumstances and assisting them with setting goals for sustainable change that they want to make.
The main therapy technique that I use is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is a type of talk therapy that can help people of all ages, including younger children and teens. CBT differs from other therapy approaches by focusing on the ways that and individuals’ thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are interconnected, and how they each affect one another.

I understand that seeking therapy can be a scary process, and finding the right counselor for your specific needs can be tricky. If trust is an issue for you, the quest for a therapist can be even more daunting. Congratulations to you if you have gathered enough inner resources to reach out for help.
My office is designed as a judgement free zone. My greatest quality as a therapist is compassion. If you choose to embark on this journey with me, I will provide guidance, strength, support and over 30 years of experience. My specialties include mood disorders, anxiety management, overcoming addictions, and working through physical, emotional, and sexual trauma. I work with diverse populations and am part of the LGBT community. I welcome anyone who would find comfort in meeting with me to address issues of that nature.
I received my MSW at Kent School of Social Work in 1984. Shortly thereafter, I moved to Florida and worked in several psychiatric hospitals. Later, I moved to Arizona where I was fortunate to work at Sierra Tucson, a nationally acclaimed addiction program. Following that, I opened a treatment center of my own, serving persons with trauma and addiction. In 2002, after adopting my twins, I returned to Louisville to raise them here in the Bluegrass state.
Since 2002, I have worked at Bridgehaven, a psychiatric rehab program, and managed a small private practice on the side. I am delighted to join the staff at Brock Family Therapy Center. I hope to share my experience, strength and wisdom with others seeking a path to greater peace and happiness. Together, we can begin the process of healing.

Therapy, also called psychotherapy or counseling, is the process of meeting with a therapist to resolve problematic behaviors, beliefs, feelings, and relationship issues. Beginning therapy can be a big step toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the best life possible—no matter what challenges you may be facing. Through therapy, you can change self-destructive behaviors and habits, resolve painful feelings, improve your relationships, and more. If you are finding yourself or your relationships “stuck”, Irene would like to help you explore the goals and steps you need to get to a healthier, happier place.
Irene holds her bachelor’s degree in Psychology from The Ohio State University and is a current student in the Liberty University Clinical Mental Health Counseling Master’s program.

I am a certified social worker in Kentucky and a licensed social worker in Indiana with a background in healthcare-primarily pediatrics, community mental health, care management and psychiatry. I specialized in Psychosocial Oncology during the course of my masters program and I am currently enrolled in the Clinical Social Work Doctoral Program at the University of Kentucky.
Therapy can be overwhelming and uncomfortable at times. My goal is to work collaboratively with individuals to establish goals for the future and overcome those feelings of doubt, working toward positive change. I have experience providing therapy to children and adolescents but I would be happy to work with adults as well. I specialize in Strengths Based and Solution Focused Brief Therapy as well as CBT.
Struggling with a problem or relationship? Tired of feeling the same way and repeating the same old patterns? Need more self confidence or want to feel more hopeful about your future? Helping you cope with stressors, navigating difficult transitions, and providing guidance in which you can feel more in control of your life is a key focus of my therapy. Through my goal oriented approach, I help clients find the tools and discover coping strategies to feel better and strengthen their supports. I have expertise in working with individuals, marriages/couples, parents, and families.
I am licensed in KY as a Marriage and Family Therapist Associate, and work with all those in coupled relationships. Helping clients build competencies and cope successfully with anxiety and stress is critical. Individual counseling is also offered.
Hi! I am Kelsey, a recent graduate from the University of Louisville Kent School of Social Work and Family Sciences. Go Cards! I earned a dual Master’s in Social Work and Couple and Family Therapy. I have a pit mix named Maya Lou, named after one of my role models Maya Angelou. When I'm not playing with my dog, you can find me reading, making art, or crocheting.
My approach to therapy is to create a safe place to collab with clients and assist them in accomplishing goals. I have experience working in a community and hospital setting, treating individuals of all ages. My therapy lens leans toward Attachment Theory and Emotion-Focused Therapy. I have attended training for Emotional Focus Family Therapy. I am not limited to that lens and work to find the best approach for each individual, couple, or family.

As a clinician, I serve all people regardless of race, ethnicity, religious/spiritual affiliation/beliefs, gender, and sexual orientation. As a black clinician, I strive to destroy the stigma of mental health, especially within the black/African American community.
As a black male clinician, I understand the unique and systemic challenges and barriers we face every day and how our mental health is adversely affected by these experiences.
My goal is to partner with clients to provide a positive therapeutic experience that promotes overall health and wellness. My client-centered approach is grounded in three E's: Empathy, Education, and Empowerment. I believe exercising empathy to develop a safe space will allow for therapeutic moments to unfold that will provide powerful insight for the client. Once a safe and trusting environment is established, together we can utilize professional education and personal enlightenment to maximize understanding and identify healthy practices. Combining empathy and education during therapy empowers individuals to achieve sustainable change and to flourish holistically.
I am a certified social worker with experience working in higher education, community mental health, and within the public school system. I have experience providing care to both children and adults. I am a Louisville native that enjoys traveling, hiking and reading.
We are all trying to do our best, but sometimes we need a little help in order to grow, change, and achieve our goals. I work to create a non-judgmental space and to create genuine connection in order to help you do that. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families and hold a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy as well as a Master’s degree in Social Work.
My specializations include working with issues of infidelity within couples, life transitions, grief, chronic pain concerns, depression, and anxiety.
