I am a counselor licensed in Tennessee with over 6 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and ADHD. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma, sexual abuse, and emotional abuse.
My counseling style is solution-focused, direct, warm, and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. 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!

She is the Queen of eloquently delivered straight talk. She is a patient and contentious listener that ask pertinent questions. But she also delivers honest and consice evaluation and recommendation. She has helped me understand myself better and provided exercises to help execute the changes I have needed to make in order to be my healthiest version. Through her insights and very poignant questions surrounding my behavioral patterns and thought processes, she has helped me break some very damaging cycles in my life that I hadn't been aware were there. I would strongly recommend her to anyone. She's brilliant.
