Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor /Mental Health Service Provider (LPC MHSP), licensed in Tennessee with 5 years of experienced as a licensed therapist. Prior to that I worked as a therapist for 3 years as I worked toward requirements for licensure. I have worked with children and adults helping them to explore a range of issues including, anxiety, depression, parenting concerns, relationship (Couples) and family issues.
My approach to therapy is client -centered, open and focused on positive regard for you, the client. Modalities I use in therapy include Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. Often I incorporate existentialism into these approaches. I am a Christian and although I would not advertise myself as a "Christian Counselor" or use therapy as a means to proselytize, I would describe myself as a counselor who sees the world through the teachings of Jesus. I do have much experience though with clients from many backgrounds. I will always meet the client wherever he or she is and work to develop rapport and a plan of treatment specifically for each of you.
Reaching out, trying to better understand yourself and others takes a lot of strength, energy and courage. It is an honor to be invited to help someone in this process. If you think that now would be a good time to step into this journey, I am ready to meet you.
Additional areas of focus: Relationship issues, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Anger management, Coping with life changes, ADHD
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy
