As LifePath’s Behavioral Health Care Coordinator, I enjoy welcoming and supporting clients on their unique journeys to lasting wellness. I am a graduate of the University of Kentucky, a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, and Adult Peer Support Specialist. My experience includes case management and assessment, providing support to pregnant and parenting women with mental health and substance use disorders, facilitating recovery support groups, and assisting others to find their strengths through person-centered recovery planning.
There are always reasons why people do the things they do. My approach is to help alleviate shame and unnecessary guilt by helping clients understand the “why” behind their emotions and behaviors. I use a trauma-informed approach with all my clients, understanding that adverse experiences throughout life may have impacted and influenced their understanding of self, others, and the world around them. I aim to create an emotionally safe space for clients to be completely themselves and explore their thoughts, emotions, and actions without judgment. Sometimes personal growth means accepting that you're either going to deal with your stuff, or your stuff is going to deal with you. Therapy is a great place to start the healing process.
I received my bachelor’s degree in social work from Asbury University, and my master’s degree in social work from The University of Southern California. I am licensed to practice in the state of Kentucky. I particularly specialize in working with clients who have experienced domestic violence; sexual, physical and emotional abuse; PTSD; grief; human-trafficking; religious trauma; codependency; and addiction. LGBTQ+ and Transgender safe space.

My name is Aime and I’m a psychologist who has dedicated my career to providing behavioral health services in an array of settings including community based, residential treatment programs, and psychiatric hospitalization. I believe the foundation of any relationship, including the counseling relationship, is built upon trust, respect, honesty, discretion, and effort. Throughout my career, I have been delighted to witness that as people learn about their strengths and areas of growth in supportive ways they are fully capable of achieving their goals and having their needs met by being empowered as experts in their own lives!
My responsibility in working with someone is to help facilitate the self-discovery and empowerment process in a space that is safe and affirming. My counseling approach stems from a holistic belief that there is a triadic relationship between emotions, behaviors, and thoughts with each influencing the other. To support a person’s healing and growth in these areas, I offer a variety of materials and methods – below are just a few:
- Mindfulness and meditation education and skill development
- Development of natural supports and fellowship
- Holistic education for lifestyle wellness
- Adult children of dysfunctional families counseling
- Life adjustment, grief, or loss counseling
- LGBTQ affirmative counseling
- Energy Medicine
My clinical orientation is drawn from experience and education in neuropsychology, motivational enhancement, harm reduction and abstinence-based addiction recovery models, and wellness-oriented lifestyle practices.
I look forward to welcoming you to LifePath!

Do you long to have a more fullfilling relationship with others and yourself? Is there something that keeps getting in the way – making you feel stuck – from truly living life and experiencing joy? Is pain from your past and constant worry of the future holding you back from enjoying the present moment? If any of these statements sound like you – please know there is hope!
Hi, I’m Chloe! As you search through the internet I’m sure finding the right fit for a therapist is just about as endless as Yelps Dinner recommendations. Letting yourself be vulnerable with a stranger can be difficult. My therapeutic approach is centered around respect and empathy – my goal is to meet you where you are and help guide you to where you want to be.
I have experiences with Mental Health, Substance Use, as well as Autism Spectrum Disorders. My passion is to guide others to find their voice. Their purpose. Their meaning in life.
