About Me

Welcome! Whatever has brought you here, I am so grateful you are looking for the support you deserve. We all face struggles in life, but every struggle is an opportunity to grow.

I am a licensed counselor in Tennessee with over 5 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, stress management, relationship issues, life transitions, self-harm and suicidal thoughts.

My counseling style is warm, empathetic, and encouraging. I believe that you deserve respect for seeking help and simply for your own value. We all need people to walk through life with us at different times, and it is my privilege to do that with other people. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, person-centered, and emotion-focused techniques, but I individualize treatment for each client based on personality, strengths, and circumstances.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. My job is to be 100% in your corner and to help you move forward into a life you can love.

I look forward to working with you!

Katy is thoughtful, compassionate, and isn’t afraid to speak the truth. She’s been a gift to me this year!

Where I was when I first talked to Katy to where I am now is night and day. Katy is a superb listener and has helped me direct myself towards goals in all aspects of my life. I completely recommend her!

Katy has helped me tremendously. I felt like I came in with a fairly good knowledge of my own self and how to deal with me, so I was well set up to begin working through things. Katy really helped put things in perspective for me, help me hear how some things my mind was creating sounded when said aloud, and gave me tools and strategies to begin to work through the issues I was having. She is also always very supportive, thoughtful, and validating, and I leave every session feeling better than when I came in! I’m so so happy BetterHelp paired me with her and I’m happy to continue on my journey with her by my side.

Katy is very caring and supportive. I'm finding her counseling really valuable to have during a difficult time.

As soon as I first talked with Katy I realized she was extremely supportive and attentive to my particular needs and I felt that she really cared about every single one of her patients. I’ve been counselling with her for a while now and she proved to be even better than the first impression I had from her!

I've searched high and low for a therapist who not only knew their stuff, but who I also connected with. Katy is 100% this person. She is kind and warm. She is extremely knowledgeable and keeps you accountable. I have finally found a therapist I will work with her over the long-term.

Mrs. Katy is absolutely phenomenal! She has helped me out in so many ways! In such a short period of time she has helped me out so much! I was such a skeptic of therapy and talking about things. However, I’ve never felt that way with Mrs. Katy. She has been so warm and welcoming from the very beginning. She has changed my life for the better in such a short amount of time! I wish she could really understand how much she’s done for me!
