My background is rooted in physical fitness, competitive athletics and the field of Sport & Performance Psychology. I earned a PhD in Sport & Exercise Psychology from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and worked with competitive teams and athletes in the Mental Training Facility there. After dabbling in yoga and becoming a certified yoga instructor (ERYT-200) the mind body connection became more and more foundational to my teaching and my life. My interest in positive psychology and performance trickled into a passion for mental health (specializing in stress, anxiety, depression and trauma/PTSD). I returned to school while teaching at a private Christian University full time to get a second Masters degree in Counseling and Human Development to become an LPC. As I currently work with clients on an individual basis, hold workshops and seminars and use yoga, breathwork and mindfulness to improve lives and relationships I know I have found my true calling. Working in private practice the last three years I have helped couples, families, individuals and groups dealing with a wide range of issues from binge eating, abuse, trauma to navigating basic life transitions. I use a combinations of CBT, mind-body techniques/mindfulness and talk therapy with a person-centered approach. I believe in a holistic approach to mental health that includes physical, spiritual and emotional support.
