Dr. Young received her Psy.D. in Counseling Psychology from Carlow University. Dr. Young’s passion for social justice concerns previously connected her to Mercy Behavioral Health, a legacy program of the Sisters of Mercy of the America’s ministry in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. There she provided comprehensive mental health and substance abuse services to underserved populations for eleven years. Her research interests include trauma-informed services for women, harm reduction psychotherapy and the clinical implications of bias in the therapeutic relationship. She is a member of both the American Psychological Association and Kentucky Psychological Association.
Dr. Chapman earned her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Kentucky. Her primary research interests are in evaluating components of psychotherapy process and outcome, both in person and via telepsychology, to develop evidence-based practices that increase the access to and quality of mental health care amongst underserved populations. Although Dr. Chapman uses an integration of interpersonal process, cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness theories to inform her work, her clinical approach is ultimately informed by a client-directed outcome-informed (CDOI) model. She is currently a member of the APA Division 17 Section for the Promotion of Psychotherapy Science, is involved with the Society for Psychotherapy Research and the KPA.
