Welcome! My name is Margaret and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Tennessee. No matter the pain or struggle you are facing, I am here to be your companion and guide through a heart-centered and holistic approach. I strive to create a safe place where you can be listened to and fully accepted. From this place, we will collaborate to move your life in the direction you want and to allow for healing to take place.
I received my master's degree from the University of New Orleans in 2013 and have experience working with adolescents and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, panic attacks, unresolved trauma, OCD, life transitions, relationship struggles, and those who are feeling confused, lost, stuck, and unfulfilled. I have training in incorporating meditation and mindfulness in psychotherapy, in yoga for trauma and resiliency, and in Brainspotting (www.brainspotting.com). I also draw from my own daily meditation practice in my work with clients.
The therapeutic process often involves working through unresolved traumas (big and small), and identifying patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving that keep us trapped in suffering and with that awareness, we create choices and freedom. In my practice, brain/body based therapies are often combined with intentional movement, with mindfulness/meditation, and with talk therapy to move you towards the life you want. Our relationship is collaborative. You are the expert on yourself and your organism, and I am your companion and guide and can offer you specific education and tips that you may find helpful.
I am a mother to a toddler and in my spare time I love to be in nature, to read, and to play sports. I look forward to working with you!
