16 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a PhD level counselor licensed in Tennessee with sixteen years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including: depression, anxiety, relationship issues, self-esteem issues, trauma, and addiction related issues. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe we are all worthy of being treated with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is tailored to the individual, but I have found a lot of benefit in blending cognitive-behavioral, person-centered, and mindfulness-based counseling approaches. At this time, I am accepting message only clients, via the 24-hour message board. As we work together, I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes a lot of courage just to make that first contact for help. I am here to empower you and be with you each step of the way as we face life’s challenges together. I look forward to working with you!

“Has life got you down?” That classic question that we all come back to when things just seem a bit too crazy. The question that we’ve heard so many times, even when we were a kid. So let me ask you, has life got you down? Do you feel like your life has transitioned to a place where you feel lost, alone, or quite like nobody really understands what it’s like to be in your shoes? Has anxiety, depression, relational issues or trauma, family conflict or parenting issues beaten you down? Let me ask you one last question: is the idea of therapy terrifying? If you answered yes to any of these questions, please believe me, there’s a way. I look at my clients from a relational standpoint and work to depathologize them. I don’t work to diagnose, I work to meet the goals of my clients and integrate these new changes and core values into their lives. For this, I use an eclectic therapy style, utilizing Play Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Emotion Coaching and other attachment-based techniques. My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe, judgement-free atmosphere to allow your therapeutic journey to take its course. To show you that you no longer have to be, or have to feel, alone in the struggles that you face. To allow you to be you and to find beauty in what that holds. If it is in my scope, I want to help. If not, I want to help find you help.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Kingston Springs counselor?

Before seeing your Kingston Springs therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Kingston Springs.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Kingston Springs licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Kingston Springs counselor can be dependent on your process.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Kingston Springs, Tennessee can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
