Counselors

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 alyx@acadiacounseling.com or call (502) 825-1375.

**In-person appointments available in Dawson Springs starting 1/30/2023**

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.

​You may not know how you got to a place of feeling stuck or overwhelmed, but it would be my honor to help you figure that out. I will work with you to explore current issues and develop plans to define and achieve your goals for growth. I believe that everyone has the capacity for change. The path may not be immediately evident, but that’s why you’re here, to improve with guidance. I pull techniques from a passion for psychodynamic theory, cognitive behavioral theory, and mindfulness to help you gain a better understanding of the unknown parts of yourself and develop skills to be more grounded in the present moment. I look forward to the opportunity to embark on this journey with you.

I have worked as a counselor since 2015 and have experience working with clients navigating life transitions, depression, anxiety, and grief/bereavement. I work with individuals ages 15 through 64. Sessions are offered in-person and online via Zoom. I accept most major insurances, all Kentucky Medicaid, and provide a cash-pay option as well.  You can email me at kole@acadiacounseling.com, call (502) 572-8841 or click the “Request Appointment” button above to schedule online.
