Kathy Pardue, Licensed Professional Counselor


Kathy Pardue connects quickly to help you address concerns.  We generate options together in a safe, accepting atmosphere.  Get free from isolation of processing concerns alone, and experience new ways of letting go of the past.  Hope happens in relationship, not thru insight alone. All faiths or none welcome.

Marriage Counseling. Keep the Love.


Marriages look for perspective in balancing work, parenting, friends, and responsibilities while remaining lovers and best friends.  Both want to be heard and accepted in an intimate relationship.  If you feel detached or have chronic conflict, you can learn validation in restoring the love and respect needed for intimacy.   Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT) helps couples become better attentive to the more vulnerable feelings under anger and become less defensive.  Strong love can return as you see the effort of your spouse to listen with empathy.  Forgiveness and sacrificial thinking is possible as you feel appreciated and understood.  Get the fun back in your relationship as your communication changes.      Kathy Pardue LPC 

Therapy Approach


 Hurtful life events and disappointments need to be listened to with empathy as you reach out for help to change.  We help to discern areas within your control and those needing acceptance as we take steps to change direction.  Our relationship of trust can bring new motivation as you realize you are not alone and fully capable of making new decisions.  When you change, others change.  It is encouraging to let go of self-defeating thoughts.  

As you get new perspective, your courage will increase to address addictions, anger, anxiety, and unresolved conflict.

Effective Tools and Goals


You will be equipped with simple tools to recall in hot button circumstances with family, friends, and coworkers.  LUV-Talk (Smalley) and anger management basics can help de-escalate situations and change habits.  Anger is a secondary emotion and always has underlying, vulnerable feelings which may be invalidated or unheard.  Learning to identify the true emotion under the anger is the challenge to avoid hiding or hurling.  Anger is common to all of us, but can be used for good when addressing important feelings toward restoring healthy relationships.

Couple Sessions

Couples usually want peace and honesty in their relationship.  Emotional intimacy leads to intimacy in sex.  We help you work toward your goals and get free from resentment, avoidance, and chronic conflict.  Clients are also encouraged in relaxed individual sessions in addition to couples therapy.  Both of you are validated for your thoughts and feelings, and therapy is about surfacing truth and helpful resolution, not about sides. marriage counseling catholic counseling
