I am licensed in Tennessee with 9 years of work experience prior to obtaining a license as a Marital and Family Therapist. I value working hard to understand where you are and where you want to be...
What does it all mean for you as a client? It means that:
I will pay attention to you as a whole person (thoughts, feelings, beliefs, body sensations, and memories). I acknowledge you grew up in a specific culture, family and generation that was affected by all kinds of different life events and the relationships with others.
I listen and understand before offering feedback and recommendations. Your therapy is a collaborative journey. Together we can work on helping you improve your life and reach your goals.
