Holly Deckling, LISW
Holly graduated from Mount Vernon Nazarene University with a Bachelor of Social Work degree then received a Master degree of Science in Social Work from the University of Louisville.

Holly has experience with a varying amount of organizations including the child welfare system and has worked with people of all ages from infancy to 100+ years old.
Holly's favorite type of counseling is cognitive behavioral therapy and she likes to do research to find answers to questions and difficult situations that may not be straightforward or easy to answer. Through both personal and professional experience, Holly understands how thoughts affect us and the impact those thoughts can have on every day life.
Holly firmly believes"Our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever."(2 Corinthians 4:17-18)
