Marie Wallace

MEET YOUR THERAPIST

Hello, My name is Marie. I am a licensed Professional Counselor Associate in the state of Kentucky.

MY BACKGROUND

I am originally from central Africa - Gabon, to be specific. Some of my fondest childhood memories are set in my native land where I’d sit at my grandfather’s feet every night and listen to him tell stories. He would share fables of fierce jungle animals that depicted themes of wisdom, bravery, corruption, friendship, and so much more. Through his stories, I learned the importance of staying motivated despite whatever weakness or adversity you may encounter.

The lessons I learned inspired my move to Kentucky 16 years ago. I was determined to further my education using any and all opportunities my new home would grant me. Upon my arrival, I started my career in education with the Early HeadStart Program serving low-income families in my community. Through my work in education, I gained up-close and personal insight into the needs of families  struggling with mental health. Working within this community ultimately inspired me to go back to school. So, I re-enrolled and graduated with my Master of Education degree in Counseling from Lindsey Wilson College. My specialities include counseling those with mood or anxiety disorders, older clients, people with physical disabilities, and/or individuals struggling with any major life changes. If you feel isolated, depressed, or anxious, it would be my privilege to work with you. I love to motivate and empower my clients.

It would be my honor to work with you.
