About Me

Hello! I applaud your decision to view my page. This first step may have been difficult for you, and it signals that you want resolution of an issue. Together we will work to alleviate pain/suffering so that you can have a full, rich, meaningful life.

I have a clinical doctoral degree (DSW) from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville as a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Alabama and an undergraduate degree in social work, sociology (minor-Psychology) earned at Huntingdon College. I love helping people!

As a clinical social worker, I meet people during times of duress—often the worst day of their life. I have a non-judgmental regarding the issues that one has when seeking my help. As we work toward healing, I can promise that I will NOT dismiss the pain you are experiencing or make light of your situation. It is imperative that I not only HEAR you but UNDERSTAND you and this requires open communication and trust (both of us).

I have more than 30 years’ experience working with individuals and families with a variety of health/mental health concerns and life/career changes. I have mentored colleagues and provided supervision for them as well.

With multiple years of experience in health care (hospitals, nursing homes, home health, hospice) I have also developed a passion for working with older adults and their families. However, I treat adults of all ages especially those with anxiety, depression, life changes, pre-retirement concerns, etc.
My approach is client centered and I use a range of treatment options: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, CBT, Mindfulness, Problem Solving Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Rogerian, Gestalt and others.

I look forward to working with you to accomplish your goals! The next step is committing to therapy.

Wishing you all the best life has to offer.
