Bettie Howe is a Kentucky state Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) specializing in trauma recovery including dissociative disorders.  She has been in private practice for over fifteen years working with couples, individual adults, and adolescents on such issues as relationship problems, depression, anxiety, codependency, and spiritual questions in addition to trauma recovery. She is also a Board Certified Professional Christian Counselor (BCPCC) if you are seeking Christian-based counseling.

Bettie’s approach to counseling is holistic and goal-oriented. She counsels from the perspective that people are all wounded throughout their lives either intentionally or unintentionally by loved ones and/or by life's circumstances. These wounds can manifest as emotional turmoil, spiritual emptiness, and even neurological changes in the brain. As a result, people may think and behave in ways that either inflict further injury on themselves and/or others or isolate them from relationships that can help them with healing. Sessions are focused on setting and working on goals for the purpose of healing those wounds.

During an initial session, she will review your intake information with you as well as what you can expect from the counseling experience. She will then discuss with you what concerns and issues have motivated you to come and assist you in determining what goals you would like to accomplish in upcoming sessions.

Bettie uses multiple therapeutic modalities including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Cognitive-Behavioral, Gestalt, and Client-Centered. She is experienced in the use of Scripture and prayer for those interested in Christian-based counseling. For relationship issues, she uses multiple tools including exercises from Dr. John Gottman, Ph.D., communication exercises, and emotionally-focused exercises.
