About Me

Hello,

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Tennessee with over 8 years of experience working as an individual and family counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, familial issues, addiction issues, career challenges, and multi-cultural concerns. I am also a trauma informed counselor and I really enjoy working with families and individuals.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, experiential, psycho-educational and solution-focused counseling techniques. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Shayla is very professional and still personable and easy to talk to. She’s already helped me so much in the short amount of time I’ve worked with her and I look forward to diving deeper into therapy with her guiding me.
