Kristy Fuller

LPCC-S, CFRC, and Owner of Fuller Life Counseling Partners

Kristina “Kristy” Watt Fuller has a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Western Kentucky University and has been a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor since 2001. Kristy has a special interest in those with dealing with anxiety, depression, family dynamics, substance use, and trauma. Kristy became a Certified First Responder Counselor in 2021 and has a passion for working with those who have served our community as a first responder. Kristy is accepting new referrals for commercial insurance and self-pay. Kristy also provides flexible scheduling and even online counseling for those with a hectic schedule. Kristy is trained in a variety of evidence-based practices including EMDR and was a Circle of Compassion recipient in 2010 from the University of Kentucky for her work with children in foster care. 

I understand and respect the courage it takes to talk with someone about personal and sometimes uncomfortable topics. It is my goal to assist a client in achieving overall wellness, which I believe is key to long term happiness. If you are motivated for change in your life but not sure how to achieve that change, I would love to assist you on that journey to positive change.  I believe that the relationship between the therapist and client is primary to change and see myself as your partner in the process.

As a certified first responder counselor I feel that I have the privilege to work with responders who have served and continue to serve our community. I see my role in working with responders as a small way of giving back to them for that service.

We offer online counseling in Kentucky and Tennessee.

She specializes in working with many forms of trauma and has completed trainings in Brainspotting, Trauma informed CBT, Mindfulness and has experience using techniques from various trauma informed approaches.  
She understands that many of us have been raised to believe that if we have intense thoughts and painful emotions that there is something permanently wrong with our minds.  The good news is that this has been disproven.  In the last several years, exciting discoveries in neuroscience have demonstrated that we can work to mold our own brains throughout our lifetime. There are actions we can take and easy therapies we can participate in that will be effective in helping us feel better. Our minds are our own tool for healing. She looks forward to sharing this empowering knowledge as a working partner in her clients’ healing journey. Her goal is to be the best resource possible for her clients to utilize in their healing journey. She has a multidimensional perspective on the healing process because everyone is unique and needs a personalized approach.

Donna Goodman, APRN, PMHNP

Hello, my name is Donna Goodman. I am a native of Grayson County, Kentucky, but currently live in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. I am married and have 4 adult children and 3 fur babies. I have been a registered nurse for over 30 years. After deciding to continue my education in 2013, I started my journey in graduate school. I practiced as a family nurse practitioner for about 3 years before feeling in my heart I was being drawn towards mental health treatment. I enrolled in the psychiatric nurse practitioner program at my alma mater, Frontier Nursing University. I have been practicing as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner since 2019.

 

My faith in God has always allowed me to believe He places us where we are needed. I know mental health issues are stigmatized and it has always been my goal to help each and every patient understand, I am not here to judge, just to help someone reach a better place. We all have times when we need the help of others, and if I can offer that help then I have been successful.
