I am licensed in Tennessee with 4 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, anger management, & depression. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I approach each person I work with as a partnership, and I am simply one guide on your therapeutic journey. I simply want to help you become the best version of yourself in whatever way that looks for you. My work is very person centered and grounded in different foundations of Positive Psychology. I am also training to become a Registered Expressive Arts Therapist, so I will often bring in more creative interventions into our time together. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am both proud of you for reaching out and honored that you are willing to give me the chance to support you in this journey .
