About Me

Hello, and welcome to BetterHelp! You are here to find some assistance with something that is going on in your life. I’d like to help you! Let me tell you a little about myself.

I earned my master’s in social work at the University of Montana in 2013, where I focused on co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. Since then, I have worked with individuals, couples, and families in a variety of settings. I am a licensed clinical social worker and a master addiction counselor in the state of Tennessee.
My work as a therapist is guided by the humanist theory that people can heal and grow if they have assistance that is genuine, empathetic, and accepting. I believe that when we accept ourselves exactly as we are, then we can find the strength to change behaviors that are not serving us. I specialize in working with people who have substance use, anxiety, depression, and interpersonal conflict issues. The approaches I use include dialectic behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, positive psychology, attachment theory, and family systems theory.

I commend you for taking this step and exploring options for getting some help with whatever you are going through. I would be honored to work with you.
