About me

Hey folks!I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor, Mental Health Service Provider in Tennessee. My passion for therapy began after realizing I was helping many clients with the similar concerns related to identity confusion, limited self-awareness, and low self-confidence. I realized I could reach out to more people using different forums and saw an opportunity to help more people than I could ever hope to see in individual sessions face to face. There just aren’t enough hours in the week!
My therapy style is warm, supportive, interactive, validating, and empowering. I utilize a client-centered, cognitive behavioral therapy approach with a solution focused perspective, and have training and extensive experience in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), and rational emotive behavioral therapy ( REBT)
As a conscientious therapist it is important to me to provide a safe, non-judgmental, therapeutic environment, and treat everyone with respect, compassion, and unconditional positive regard. I offer a style and approach that best fits the needs of each individual, and partner with each individual to create a treatment plan with specific goals and objectives that meet specific needs.
Life is pretty complex and sometimes presents us with challenges that require support and therapeutic interventions to achieve balance and overall wellness. Congratulations to you for your courage, and on your decision to seek empowerment and enhance your current emotional well-being.
If you are ready to take the next step, know that I’m here and looking forward to supporting and empowering you as you strive to elevate your wellness.

Necole has helped me immensely through my journey of healing. Whether it be issues that I'm facing in the moment or deep-seated trauma that I have trouble expressing, she has always been respectful and incredibly helpful. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to mental health but still remains empathetic while being professional. I enjoy our sessions and always look forward to the next one.
