About Lydia Kickliter

I am Lydia Kickliter, Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Personal Development Coach. My approach to helping people achieve their goals is to guide an individual towards their unique talent and ability to create change. I believe that we are all capable of change, regardless of how overwhelming our story may seem. I truly see myself as a facilitator of truth. I have helped people recognize their worth and their innate value within the world.

Through my work with survivors of sexual abuse, I began to recognize the courage it takes to not only want something different, but to create a new reality. I help people understand that we all have the ability to be brave. I am trained in EMDR and Trauma Focused CBT and realize that in some way we all have experienced trauma in our lives. I guide individuals towards recognizing the lies that are present in their stories and give them the tools to tell their story differently. When the story has a new ending, freedom becomes a lifestyle.

The progression from counselor to coach is a natural one for me. Once people can recognize that they are not “sick,” they can move towards the grander picture of creating the life they want. I can help make that transition a successful one.

Lydia Kickliter Success Stories

A journey in to clarity

Women starting over

"I have been seeking professional advice from Lydia for over 8 months. When I first started I remember feeling extremely overwhelmed with my life. The thought of starting with another counselor seemed dreadful! I remember my first session thinking I didn’t know where to “begin.” When I met her, the words, feelings & emotions just flowed as if I had been with her for years.more

My journey is one of emotional abuse, traumatic events & separation. Lydia’s professional experience continues to help me see my own clarity in my life. She takes the Mind, Body, Spirit approach and helping in all areas to assist one in seeing the importance of all 3 components, and to recognize if there is a disconnect.

Lydia offers a great deal of understanding & she always says the right things to put things into perspective. Her knowledge and understanding of my grief, anger & abuse has guided me into better understanding and helped me move through life’s hardship more gracefully with learning to let go! She has helped me understand myself and how to process my thoughts in a healthy fashion. Every time I leave a session I feel so empowered and free to make the all the changes I need to, in a positive direction!

I am 43 years old and a woman that I would describe as being, strong & capable and full of life and with Lydia’s expertise, she helps me feel stronger, more stable & confident & continues to help me build a solid foundation! I feel honored & blessed to have crossed paths with Lydia. I am so happy to remember this part of my journey with her. Lydia said to me long ago, “Live your true authentic self” these words I will forever live by and never forget!"
