Based out of Louisville, Kentucky, Transforming Within is the private practice of Dona J. Airey, a counselor with LCSW and ACSW certifications. Airey offers services for clients dealing with various behavioral health issues including mental illness and substance abuse. All programs are outpatient-based and feature a range of eclectic and brain-based therapies, all individualized and flexible enough to suit any schedule.
Treatment and Staff
Before beginning a care plan, all participants go through an initial meeting and consultation to determine their needs and their treatment history. Because the facility does not offer medical or psychiatric care, those in need of detox or stabilization services must get referrals to nearby programs as necessary. Upon beginning counseling, clients can expect to attend individual therapy focused primarily on hypnosis, neuro-linguistic programming and brainspotting techniques. Other practices include mindfulness and attachment-based counseling along with Somatic Experiencing. In general, 12-step participation is not required, though participants can be referred to local meetings upon request.
As mentioned, the staff at Transforming Within consists primarily of Dona J. Airey herself, along with some administrative staff.
In addition to the individual therapy plans mentioned above, the organization also provides special couples and family counseling programs as well. Special support for LGBTQ clientele is also provided, as is remote video counseling for those who can’t make it to the office in person.
Overall, Transforming Within offers a somewhat unorthodox approach to mental health and addiction counseling. In general, treatment avoids 12-step programs, medical oversight and evidence-based counseling in favor of a holistic and brain-oriented approach. All care plans are individualized and flexible, with special support for couples, families and LGBT clients as well. While those in need of more intensive medical or psychiatric oversight may need to seek additional help elsewhere, Transforming Within remains a program worth considering for those looking for a different approach to recovery.
