**Currently accepting new clients at the Dawson Springs location or via telehealth.**

Hello! My name is Eric. I’m 35 years old and I’m currently a Licensed Professional Counseling Associate. Throughout my career, I’ve worked with a wide variety of clients, including children and adults. I try to develop a personal treatment plan with each client based on their goals. I work hard to understand your unique worldview and how it devolved. I tend to focus on understanding the roots of behaviors and
beliefs, challenging thought processes that are harmful, developing a healthy  perception of self, and learning skills to regulate emotions and interact with the world effectively. My main specialty is trauma processing. I have advanced training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), considered the most effective and researched treatment for trauma-related symptoms. I have experience working with unresolved grief, survivors of abuse,  medical trauma, veterans’ issues, LGBTQIA issues, foster care, and ASD issues. Like most clinicians, I’ve spent time as a client myself, so I know how impactful effective therapy can be on living a full and happy life. Let’s work together to grow the version of your life you hope for! I accept all forms of Kentucky Medicaid, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield commercial, Aetna commercial, and Cigna insurances. I also have a cash-pay rate of $50/hour. I provide in-person and telehealth services. To schedule with me, use the Request Appointment button on the home page, email me at, or call/text (812) 777-5789.

Starting therapy can be a daunting task, between the fear of being judged and the dread of spending half your session explaining terms or acronyms that make up an integral part of your identity. All
you want is to talk to someone who gets you. Maybe you’re navigating the process of coming out; maybe you’re on the cusp of a major transition; or maybe you’re tired of trying to fit yourself in a box that doesn’t seem made for people like you. It can feel lonely, frustrating, and even scary
sometimes. I understand.

As a queer, neurodivergent counselor, I know that, while our individual stories are unique, there are shared histories and experiences within each community. These commonalities give me a perspective and understanding of certain issues you might be going through. Together, we can face
these issues in an environment that is safe, supportive, and nonjudgmental—a space where you can have the freedom to be yourself. You deserve the chance to be your authentic self, to learn how to work with your brain instead of against it, and to achieve the goals and life changes you
wish to make. It would be an honor to be part of your journey.

My approach to counseling is a holistic one, looking not only at you as a person but your family, support system, community, and culture. While I am rooted in person-centered, motivational interviewing, and dialectical behavioral therapies, I work with every client to find the approaches and techniques that work best for you. If you’re ready to take the next step, I’m happy to meet for a free consultation to see if we would be a good fit and to answer any questions you might have.

I accept all forms of Kentucky Medicaid, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Cigna insurances. I also have a cash-pay rate of $50/hour. I provide in-person and telehealth services. To schedule with me, use the Request Appointment button on the home page, email me at or call (502) 825-1375.

Hello! My name is Darla and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (LPCA). Difficult experiences in life can bring up feelings of anxiety, depression, or lack of direction; it can be hard to know what to do. Whatever your struggle, I am here to provide support. Inviting someone into your personal space can be understandably intimidating and scary, but despite that, here you are! I am here to walk alongside and empower you, and to help you realize you are not alone. I utilize an open, non-judgmental approach to treatment and believe everyone can make a difference.

We are all individuals with different stories and deserve to be realized as such; this includes therapeutic approaches. We will work together through an integrative therapeutic approach to discover the methods and practices which will be most beneficial to you as an individual.

I work with individuals of ages 18 through 60, via telehealth/Zoom exclusively. I specialize in working with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma/PTSD, anger, grief/loss, assertiveness, and behavior modification. Additionally, most of my experience has been gained through working with First Responders (Active or Retired), Veterans, and Active-Duty Service Members. However, the scope of my practice is not limited to any population.

I am so excited you are taking this step and look forward to taking the journey of healing with you. I accept all KY Medicaid plans, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield commercial, Cigna commercial, and Aetna commercial insurances. If you prefer, I also offer an $80/hour cash-pay rate. To schedule with me, please email me at, or call me at (804) 829-0766.

When you visit me for therapy, you will feel comfortable. I work hard to allow people to feel connected with me instead of talking “to just another professional” Your level of comfort is directly related to your achievement in therapy; the more comfortable you feel, the more you are likely to achieve. Whether we are engaging in talk therapy, play therapy or another approach, your emotional safety is my first priority.
I graduated from Lindsey Wilson College in 2019 with a Masters in Human Services and Counseling. I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate. I specialize in eating disorders, anxiety and depression. I have been seeing clients for two years now and am always accepting new ones. I specialize in working with children, adolescents and women’s issues, though I will see anyone from ages 5 to 64.
I offer the convenience of teletherapy and will conduct in-person sessions at Acadia Counseling’s new location at 100 Water Street in Dawson Springs, KY starting around 12/1/2022.
