Life can be an amazing journey; and sometimes it seems unkind. Let us help you bring new life to your journey by seeing life through a different lens. A new lens (therapy) that allows you to no longer walk your journey in darkness but as you apply the light (therapy) your path becomes illuminated!
I have years of experience with the substance/drug abuse population; but am qualified to counsel various populations. I mostly use cognitive behavioral therapy as my model treatment but will often use a form of integrative therapy in blending specific types in an eclectic way that works best for the client. I also offer Christian-based counseling services for those in need.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who works part-time at New Life Counseling Services! I earned my BA and Master Degrees in Counseling & Human Development from Lindsey Wilson College.

Grace Hallak, MRC., LPCA-Behavioral Health/Substance Abuse Clinician
The most terrifying and beautiful fact is that feelings are always temporary. Therapy can help guide you through the tough challenges in life and recognize the beauty in your journey. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate and recent graduate from the University of Kentucky with a Master’s in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling in Mental Health. I was born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised in Connecticut. I received my Bachelor’s of Arts and Sciences in Psychology with a minor in health at Eastern Connecticut State University.
I have a research and education background in eating disorders, cross-cultural competencies and healthy romantic relationships. My experience includes but is not limited to substance abuse, domestic violence, depression, anxiety, codependency, anger management and parenting. I did my grad internship at Eastern State Hospital here in Lexington, KY working with acute psychiatric patients. My counseling style is a Cognitive Behavioral approach focusing on Dialectical Behavioral therapy and the ability to connect our thoughts and feelings to recognize our actions. I believe that we have the ability to change the way feel about situations and have healthy functional relationships with proper communication.
Kristy Klueh, CSW, TCADC- Behavioral Health Clinician/Substance Abuse/Animal Therapist
Hi! I am a Certified Social Worker (CSW), Temporary Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (TCADC), a current member of both the National Association of Social Work (NASW) and the Kentucky Society of Clinical Social Work (KSCSW), and I am licensed to practice mental health counseling under the supervision of an LCSW in the state of Kentucky. I graduated from the University of Southern California with a Master’s of Social Work in 2017 with an emphasis in Mental Health. I have been practicing for over two years, treating individuals, and groups. I adhere to the NASW Code of Ethics, and the Kentucky Board of Social Work.
I will be working with my clients to create a biopsychosocial assessment during our initial sessions. I will be utilizing the DSM-V Diagnostic Manual to assist with my assessments and any diagnoses. I will be using Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing in my treatment with clients. The main purpose of Cognitive-Behavioral treatment is that success in therapy results from identifying and changing negative thoughts and/or beliefs that could be resulting in negative behaviors. The primary purpose of Motivational interviewing is that it is a client-centered counseling style for eliciting behavior change by helping clients to explore and resolve ambivalence. It is more goal oriented and driven by the client. In addition to CBT and Motivational interviewing I will be utilizing animal therapy in my session. I have two dogs that will intermittently come into work with me for the day to help with animal therapy. Please meet Bodi and Matti, we will be pleased to service our clients with working towards achieving their therapeutic goals!
