About me

I am licensed in Tennessee with 22 years of professional work experience. My career has provided me opportunities to work with many people from diverse backgrounds facing many different challenges. I have extensive experience work with adolescents and their families, members of the adoption triad, survivors of trauma, and those struggling with addiction and their family members. In addition, I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, post rehabilitation adjustment, LGTBQ+ related issues, shame, anger, relationship issues, and religious trauma, & overall trauma and abuse. The relationship between client and therapist is a foundational piece of successful outcomes. I provide a safe, nonjudgemental, professional, but personable treatment experience that includes objectivityu, guidance and feedback to support them in attaining their personal goals. Making the decision invest in yourself and start therapy takes courage. If I can be of help to you in your efforts I will be honored.
