Tennessee is known for Nashville, the country music capital of the world. In a way, life can be like a country song. It can be positive, filled with honky tonks and a peaceful day on the front porch drinking tea. Other times, it can be sad and it feels like everyone has left you. 

A counselor can take the more positive aspects of your life and turn into a song worth singing. Speak to a Tennessee-based counselor today.

I spent the first part of my career working with children in high risk environments. This has included abuse, trauma, neglect, and abandonment. Since then I have expanded to work with individuals of all ages. Even so, I have not lost focus on the idea that the experiences during our early years shape our worldview as adults. When someone is traumatized, their whole life can begin to revolve around that event. My hope for all of my clients is that they are able to integrate all of their experiences into a cohesive self concept. By doing this, they will be able to u...

People say, "Before you can love anyone else you must first love yourself" but they never really explain just how to do that. I support clients in extending compassion to the aspects of themselves that have been unloved, criticized, neglected, abandoned, invalidated, abused, or unacknowledged. I assist clients by evoking curiosity into their anxiety, depression, anger, or any obstacles that come up in trying to sustain healthy relationships. I help people see how this has been a way they have been protecting themselves from much deeper pain. My style of the...
