Hello, my name is Roger Dale Thompson my training is in systemic therapy, meaning there are members in families that may impact one another promoting healthy relationships. Meanwhile, there are family members that may negatively impact one another, possibly creating trauma. Therapy is meant to assist clients to reclaim what is healthy. Occasionally it requires participation from other family members, not just the individual. Every situation must be determined on a case by case basis. Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is a very helpful technique to retrain thoughts to have a healthier mind set. This can work with individuals, families, and couples.

My education includes time at Freed-Hardeman, Harding, Clemson, Southwestern Oklahoma State University and post-graduate work at Murray State University.

In addition to being a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I have served the role of director at the Christian Counseling Center since it’s beginning in 1986. During my career I have had the honor of serving two terms on Kentucky’s Licensure Board of Marriage and Family Therapy. Currently I am a member of American Association for Marriage and Family Therapists and American Association of Christian Counselors.

I have the joy of being married to Laura and we have three adult children. In my free time I enjoy fishing, gardening, photography, travel and just being outdoors; I also enjoy a really good joke and laugh.



My name is K. Diane Reed, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor.  If you are looking for a therapist, I would love to be your catalyst for hope and change.  I want to help you focus on your future to achieve your goals.

After obtaining a bachelor’s and master’s degree from Murray State University in elementary education, I served McCracken County Schools as a teacher.  I continued my education and obtained another master’s degree in counseling, certifying me to counsel and provide educational, behavioral and psychosocial assessments with children and young adults in grades K-12.  My experience with the counseling process, led me to expand my certification to working with adults, by seeking and obtaining licensure as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor.

I have been a licensed therapist for over 14 years and maintain my licensure as a certified teacher, counselor, testing specialist, and administrator.    I regularly counsel with individuals (children and adults) who are experiencing issues such as depression, relationship concerns, women’s issues, adjustment problems, parenting struggles, ADHD/ADD issues, developmental and educational concerns/assessments, anxiety, and other common problems.  Life often deals us some difficult issues, and facing those issues with a trusted professional makes the process smoother.

You may email me at for specific questions.

Outside of the counseling setting, I spend my free time with family.   I love traveling, photography, boating and camping.  When those aren’t possible, I exercise my artistic skills by painting—landscapes, portraits, and abstracts.  I’m strictly an amateur artist, but it is a relaxing and rewarding pastime.
