About Kathy

Since graduating from the University of Kentucky with a Masters in Social Work, Kathy has worked at Catholic Charities for nearly 11 years before opening her own private practice in 1992. Kathy’s office is located in Crestview Hills, Kentucky where she continues to work with adults, adolescents, couples, families and groups and provide therapy that will make a lasting impression on the lives she touches.

Kathy’s Mission Statement
Help people live more meaningful, fulfilling and happier lives. Promote health and healing.

People are helped to move past the management of symptoms into relief recovery. If people are experiencing depression, anxiety, anger, grief, marital or work issues there are reasons for this and I work with people in a collaborative way to understand why they are experiencing problems and how to resolve them.
