Jordan Gage, LPCC

Specializes in addiction and recovery treatment, men’s issues, anxiety, and depression; accepts most commercial and Medicaid insurance plans.

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor here in Kentucky. My goal is to be an ally and source of support to help people along their journey. Sometimes that journey is easy, and sometimes things are messy, complicated, and challenging. We often learn ways of getting through life that don’t always help us the way we want. By taking stock of our lives, emotions, and thought processes we can uncover which things may be working well, and which ones could stand to be changed. This allows us to craft our own story rather than following one that feels stale or stagnant.

My focus in counseling is to help people find what barriers they have preventing them from living the life they hope for. Everyone has their own unique situations and concerns they are facing, and once we identify these, we can work together to find better ways for you to cope and move forward from the sources of pain and stress.

I believe treatment should be navigated delicately and without judgement. We are more than our current situation, which is why I work to understand what it took to get you where you are today, including your strengths. I encourage art therapy, as it does not require any artistic skill and can help tap into memories and emotions that you may have struggled to find or articulate. We’re all human, we all make mistakes, and we all have trauma. Sometimes these things affect us in ways we wish they didn’t, and I would love to help you improve in areas that need most attention.

Daleigh Kranz, CSW

Specializes in working with children, teens and young adults. Accepts Anthem BCBS, Medicaid and Private Pay/HSA.

My scope of work with clients includes navigating challenging emotions such as anxiousness and depression, building on social skills, and healing from traumatic events. I work with a variety of clients including school-aged children and adults. As Psychologist Ashley Warner states, “Beneath every behavior, there is a feeling. And beneath every feeling, there is a need. And when we meet that need rather than focus on the behavior, we begin to deal with the cause, not the symptom.” I believe it is through therapy we can work to understand what the deeper meaning is behind behaviors and find solutions to address the manifesting need.

Denise Stephens, LCSW

If you struggle meeting goals, then we will work on removing the blocks and limits that prevent you from reaching your goals. Having structure and planning can make achieving goals more attainable. I help assist people in meeting their goals.

Christie Hines, LCSW

Specializes in trauma, relationships and parenting. Accepts most commercial insurance and Medicaid. Private pay/HSA options. Telehealth only. 

It’s often hard to steer through the never-ending changes in life. Stress, grief, trauma, depression, and anxiety show up emotionally and physically and can interfere with your everyday life and may even cause you to avoid making decisions or prevent you from moving forward. Sometimes you just need a soft place to land. Talking to friends and family are helpful but having a safe space and a non-biased person to process thoughts and feelings with is invaluable to one’s health and well-being. Recognizing the need for help is the first step towards relief. Learning how stressors affect you will allow you to find ways to handle it.

McClain Owens, CSW

Specializes in teens and young adults dealing with anxiety, depression, and trauma.

Pulling from Eastern practices like yoga and mindfulness, and working with them at the intersections of western modalites, my clients are encouraged to reach for acceptance, integration and personal peace. You are the expert of your experiences, your goals and your healing–I am here to merely witness and assist you on your journey. I believe that all humans are capable and deserving of healing, and through our work together, I believe you can live out your goals to fruition.

Aeon Vega, CSW

Specializes in trauma and addiction and works with teens and adults. Accepts Anthem commercial, medicaid and private-pay/HSA.

You were not born inherently flawed, and you were not born to suffer, but maybe somehow, somewhere along the way, your brain received this information and it has shaped the way you live your life. Feelings of isolation, guilt, shame, anger, and sadness have begun to feel inescapable, making it difficult to ask for/ accept help from others. You may feel trapped in a cycle of harmful and problematic behaviors , thoughts, relationships- you know something isn’t working, but can’t seem to figure out why or where to begin to start feeling better. Give yourself credit – you’ve already taken a big step forward, which brought you here.
