Welcome, and thank you for your consideration! I am a Holistic Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Wellness Coach, team member, and advocate. My approach utilizes tremendous Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) strategies, empowering Clients to discover, and operate in their true identity. This therapeutic approach while mainly CBT, is eclectic, combining evidence-based methods to improve thought, mood, and behavior management. This understanding of wellness is holistic, namely looking for ways to better improve, enhance and invest in your mental, physical, and spiritual health (Whole Self Wellness).
My Clients are encouraged to keep engaged in between sessions, with access to messages, audio, live chats, and video, to check in, and share updates on struggles, progress, homework, and assignments. For those that are interested in and requesting, I specialize in a Faith - Based (Christian) approach.
In 2004 I received my Master’s of Science in Social Work from the University of Tennessee Knoxville College of Social Work, and have been actively practicing therapy since, in various settings with diverse populations (Currently Practicing and Licensed in Florida and Tennessee). My style combines empathy, compassion, coaching, accountability, and passion, with flexibility in meeting the Clients where they are at.

If you want to be challenged to be a better you, and a better follower of Jesus. Choose Nathan. He is a good listener and responder, and he gives you things to do outside of your time with him to promote life transformation. Which is what we want as Christians (Romans 12:1-2).

Nathan is an amazing therapist. He’s very knowledgeable and really knows what he’s talking about. He listens well, is clarifying, and serious about helping his clients. In addition, he’s a faith-based therapist which is exactly what I was looking for! His response times are very reasonable as well. Next therapist I’ve had since joining BetterHelp.
