(LCSW)

About Me

Hello! My name is Evie Bodling. First, I’d like to tell you a little more about me! I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) with 20 years of experience in diverse areas of practice including Children’s Services, Family Homeless Shelter, Foster care & Adoption, Crisis and Suicide Assessment, and Community-Based Behavioral Health Services. I earned my bachelor’s degree in social work at Concordia College NY, and my master’s of social work degree from Fordham University NY. I have practiced in New York and Kentucky. I come from, and practice from, a Christian perspective, but am knowledgeable about, and open to, working with those in other spiritual practices or faith traditions.

While I have worked with those with specific mental health diagnoses, I prefer to focus on your current issues and symptoms. I’ve found this to be more helpful to folks. We might explore how your past could be influencing your current issues. I will then help you formulate both current and long-term goals. I see my role not only as therapist but also as cheerleader, educator, healer, and a fellow child of God. I utilize concepts and interventions from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness & Meditation, Gestalt/Role play, and Solution-Focused Therapy.

You are a unique and special person! I will tailor my treatment approach to your individual strengths and needs. You are in charge of your treatment, and I will invite you to always let me know if we are on the right “track” for you. You might be like me--often in need of changing your negative thoughts to positive ones! If you’ve not been in behavioral health treatment before, you have now taken the hardest step towards seeking help and support. Whether or not you are new to this process, I would be honored to join you in your journey towards wholeness and happiness.

Evie is very positive and supportive. She offers real world solutions, suggestions and expertise on how to be patient with yourself but to still keep making progress as well. She is attentive and a great listener.
