Britt Riddle, DMin, MAMFT
Marriage and Family Therapist Associate
Are you a non-profit leader, minister, chaplain, faith leader, teacher, healthcare worker, or other helping professional experiencing personal and/or professional burnout? Do you feel isolated, lonely, anxious, or depressed as you tirelessly care for others? Do you feel pressure to “have it all together” and unable to share your whole self with others for fear of judgment or letting people down? Are your relationships struggling because your time and energy are depleted at work? My previous experience as a minister gives me unique insight into how helping professions can be both life-giving and exhausting–often at the same time. You do not have to travel this journey alone!
I work with individuals, couples, and families who want to prevent or recover from burnout, navigate life transitions, build resiliency, and create meaningful lives. My therapy practice is client-centered, trauma-informed, grounded in mindfulness, LGBTQIAP+-affirming, and strengths-based. I view therapy as a creative, collaborative process where we work together to foster new insights into your relationship with yourself and others. Together, we will clarify your values, cultivate new problem-solving skills, develop new perspectives, imagine new possibilities, and identify small changes that will help you live the life you want to live.
I also have experience working with people who have been wounded by religion or excluded by religious institutions. If you have been hurt by religion, first I want to say, “I’m sorry.” Religious communities can provide a beneficial sense of belonging and support, but sometimes religious beliefs can be used to control, exclude, or shame people in ways that cause significant trauma. I can help you deconstruct internalized beliefs that feel harmful and/or reconstruct a spiritual or meaning-making system that aligns with your current values. Your stories and experiences are important, and they deserve a voice and to be listened to deeply.
Your continued growth and healing are essential to enjoying meaningful connections with others. I offer virtual (throughout KY) and in-person therapy (in Louisville) and would be honored to provide confidential, supportive space as you explore and nurture your feelings, relationships, hopes, and dreams so you can re-discover what brings you joy and peace.
Originally from Louisville, I moved back to pursue a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. Prior to becoming a therapist, I received a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree and Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) degree and served as a minister in congregations in South Carolina, Virginia, and Kentucky. I find meaning in asking deep questions of myself and others, writing, sharing stories, and creating mosaic art.
