Andrea is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Kentucky where she received her MSW from the Univeristy of Kentucky. In addition to her 17+ years of experience in the field of mental health, she has also spent the last six years assisting adult adoptees and those experiencing MPE/NPE as a volunteer DNA search angel. This work has increased her awareness of the nuances and dynamics of search, reunion, secondary rejection, and the complexity of searching for identity while attempting to maintain relationships within the adoptive family/family of origin. 
She employs an integrative therapeutic approach, utilizing elements of client centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, emotion focused therapy, and solution focused therapy, all from a trauma informed lens.
Andrea is licensed in the state of Kentucky.
