I believe that with enough stress anyone could become overwhelmed and need help re-grouping. My goal is to help clients identify and access strengths as well as learn new coping skills to have happier relationships; increased self-esteem; and a more fulfilling life. I have experience with all types of clients and issues ranging from adjustment problems (primarily relationships and work) to more complex issues including depression, anxiety, grief, and unresolved childhood abuse.

Navigating the sea of life requires a different set of skills throughout life. What works when you are 16 years old doesn’t work so well when you’re 40 years old. Oftentimes when life is passing by so quickly, adapting to the changes requires better-coping skills, skills you've yet to acquire. Or maybe, your teen has all of a sudden became distant, argumentative, and secretive. You’ve tried to be supportive in their growing independence, yet still needing a home base, but the scales aren’t balancing out. This is when you understand that seeking outside intervention is necessary.

The ideal client for me would be an individual with anxiety seeking to work together for a higher quality of life. Additionally, I enjoy working with families working through struggles related to Autism or sensory processing disorders. Therapy is an action oriented activity based on the successful completion of mutually determined goals through increased pathways to those goals (methods/routes/supports available) & agency toward those goals (individual motivation).

There are so many therapists out there. How do you know which one is right for you? I don't think there is any issue or problem that I'm not willing to try and work with. Of course this doesn't mean I'm an expert on every subject or your issue. One of the most important parts of therapy is the trust between the client and the therapist. This is done by establishing a rapport with the client and creating a safe environment so that she or he feels completely safe and comfortable to talk about his or her issues. Feel free to contact me and talk with me to see if we might be a good fit. There is no charge for this.

Do you struggle with anxiety, depression, or wonder where you “fit in?” Do you struggle getting out of bed, have trouble falling sleep, or find yourself crying or “blowing up” more often?  You may be feeling isolated from your friends and family, or have a difficult time reaching out to your social supports. Maybe you are often feeling emotionally exhausted and mentally drained by routines that you used to accomplish with ease. Are you struggling to adapt to the increasingly chaotic world around you, or are you feeling a sense of loss for the life you had before the pandemic?

Healing, Growth, Change.....Working toward these three things is the core of my therapeutic approach. I also believe in starting in the “Here and Now” to provide a foundation of coping with current happenings and difficult emotions. Once that foundation is built, we work toward “peeling away the layers” of unpacking the past or looking ahead to the future. Common themes that I address are self-esteem, communication, coping skills for depression and anxiety, success practices and stress management. I will provide a safe, nonjudgemental and nurturing space for you to process whatever it is that you need to work through.

As a licensed counselor, I am committed to providing quality counseling services to the East Tennessee community. I have been licensed in Tennessee since 2015. I have worked in mental health since 2008. I had the wonderful opportunity since 2012 to work through a local church in a Christian environment providing guidance and support through a Christ-centered, holistic approach. Starting in 2016 I opened my own private practice and have been serving solely in that capacity since 2016. I offer faith based services only when asked to do so. I accept people from all walks of life and believe that everyone deserves dignity and respect.

Therapy is a passion that I feel so lucky to have found. I learn with and from every client I see. While I have experience with many populations, I am most knowledgeable with assisting victims of domestic violence, children struggling with depression/anxiety, and individuals who have experience with addiction. I enjoy working with individuals who are ready to face their fears, build a therapeutic relationship, and improve their overall quality of life. I believe that regardless of what you have achieved, you deserve the life you are willing to create for yourself. I currently see adolescents ages 13 and up, as well as adults.

My work as a counselor focuses on helping individuals use the strengths they already possess to enact positive change within their lives. I firmly believe that as people, we possess the powers within us to solve almost any problem that life throws at us. Sometimes, as the result of things we encounter in life, be it: trauma, messages learned in childhood, patterns of thought that are no longer needed, grief, or other difficult life experiences, we have trouble finding the path to the answers within us. As a counselor, I feel privileged to help people find the paths to the answers they seek.

Our past may not define us, but we can sometimes carry our past with us in our bodies, and not realize it. If we do not properly process those past hurts, trials and traumas we continue to carry them with us through life. . It is my hope as a therapist to help others to heal from those, and to let those past memories not be triggers of any negative or hurtful feelings, but to just be a memory. I am passionate about trauma therapy. I believe that there can be healing, and it is my desire to help others through that process.

Do you need to talk right away? Usually I can see clients within 2 days of their initial call. Do you feel taken advantage of and like no matter what you do, you can't win? Are you a victim of emotional, verbal or physical abuse? Do you love someone who is caught up in the pain of addiction or mental illness? Have you tried everything you can think of but have no idea how to help or what else to do? Are you afraid your partner, spouse, adult child or other loved one will end up in jail, or worse? I get it. Maybe you're just mad. Maybe you're tired of having to handle everything yourself. I get that too.
