About me

Hello! My name is Mary and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Tennessee where I have been practicing for more than 12 years. Through my career, I have the honor and privilege of serving individuals of all ages navigate various life challenges and gain the self-awareness and confidence to be their best.

I believe life is a journey with many ups and downs and twists and turns. I specialize in helping others who are struggling with anxiety, depression, and/or mood, postpartum, and eating disorders. These are often brought on by major life events, parenting difficulties, career challenges, weight struggles, or general lack of life direction. I encourage mindfulness and coach my clients to focus on the here and now and what they can control in order to create a better tomorrow.

I use an eclectic model approach which is flexible, multifaceted and client-driven therapy. I believe each client is unique and I strive to tailor my approach to ensure the most effective methods available to address the client's individual needs.

I am trained in cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, trauma-focused therapy and have extensive training in yoga for mood/trauma/addiction, ADHD and addiction.

Happiness and fulfillment is not reserved only for some. We all have a special place in this world and are meant to shine. If you are experiencing a setback, it would be my pleasure to get to know you and help you gain control of what is holding you back.

Mary is such a kind and compassionate person that these qualities shine through in my working with her. I really feel cared for. I feel especially free and comfortable to express my emotions which are often sad. She is a great listener. BW

Extremely good listener, and non judgemental, but knows when to make me question my assumptions. Love working with her.

I have tried a few other therapist in the past that did not work out, but Mary is by far the best. She listens intently and gives helpful feedback. I highly recommend her.
