I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in Tennessee and Mississippi with over 15 years of experience working as a therapist for youth and children. I have branched out to include working with adults as well. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, anger management, ADHD, self-esteem, and confidence issues.
My counseling style is warm, down to earth and person-centered. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion . My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, person-centered and solution focused modalities. I am a complete believer in that sometimes it takes a couple tries to find the one "you fit with" in terms of therapist. I may not be the best fit for one person, but will definitely help with referrals as needed. The therapeutic alliance is half the battle.
I look forward to working with you!
