Many of my clients come to therapy struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship and family issues.
In my experience, we all need to feel heard and understood. My hope and intent for each person I work with is that the time and effort spent in therapy will lead to enhanced quality of life, self-concept and well-being. I strive to create with my clients a space of safety and holding in which to explore concerns, identify needs, build coping and life skills, move through pain and promote healing. “Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...It's about learning to dance in the rain.” ― Vivian Greene.

I specialize in working with teens and adults with trauma, anxiety, and identity issues.
You haven’t felt good for months. You can’t get out of your head and your thoughts are constantly racing. Your feelings are in the driver’s seat of your life instead of you. You feel like no one understands, and you’re all alone. All you want to do is sleep. Yet you feel so restless, you can't be still or concentrate on one thing for very long.

Many people seeking therapy are simply sensitive souls in need of new or different ways of protecting themselves in a world which does not always honor the intuitive, sensitive, and creative self. I am passionate about helping individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, and obsessional thinking that I believe often results from highly sensitive creative individuals lacking an outlet for expressing and/or understanding themselves.

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.

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.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Knoxville anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Knoxville.
