Bailey views counseling as an opportunity to meet individuals where they are at, at any stage of life, on any kind of day. In each meeting with a client, she seeks to create a space for clients to feel safe, seen, heard, and understood.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Bailey is dedicated to helping children, teens, adults, and families utilize their strengths, learn new coping skills, and gain resources to grow in peace. Her joy in counseling comes from the privilege she feels in being a part of someone’s healing journey, and in assisting clients bearing large burdens.
Bailey graduated from Liberty University with a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She has worked as a mental health professional in a variety of settings including schools as a behavioral interventionist, in crisis stabilization, intensive in-home therapy, and outpatient counseling, and residential care. Throughout each of these settings, Bailey has found a passion to support families, adults, adolescents and children in difficult transitions such as separation, foster care, adoption, exposure to trauma, or substance abuse. In addition to these transitions, Bailey has worked extensively with individuals struggling with identity issues, parent-child relationship strain, faith-based concerns, as well as mental health needs that come along with anxiety, depression, conduct struggles, ADHD, familial challenges and adverse life experiences, to name a few.
Utilizing elements of trauma-informed care and attachment-based therapy, Bailey has developed a strengths-based, solutions-oriented therapeutic approach over her time as a counselor. She utilizes modalities including play therapy, EMDR, dialectical developmental psychotherapy, sand tray therapy, art-based therapy, CBT and acceptance and commitment therapy. Bailey is enthusiastic about cultivating a positive, encouraging environment for individuals in any walk of life so that healing can occur in a space where clients come knowing what to expect, feeling understood, and being sure they are met with grace no matter what.
