I am licensed in Tennessee and Missouri with over 10 years of professional counseling experience. My focus is centered on helping clients deal more effectively with stress and anxiety, depression, relationship issues, motivation, self-esteem, confidence, and career challenges. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment.
My approach to helping people focuses on identifying the strengths that you possess, and using them to help overcome the obstacles you are facing. Most people who know me well would describe me as compassionate, optimistic while staying well-grounded in reality, relaxed, open-minded, and very curious.
It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.
