As a sex therapist, I specialize in treating sexual issues. These often include relationship challenges and sexual problems such as lack of desire/low libido, difficulty with arousal, premature ejaculation and trouble reaching orgasm. Anxiety about sexual performance, lost intimacy, sexual abuse, infidelity, menopause, illness and aging can also interfere with sexual satisfaction. Sex therapy addresses problematic or illegal sexual behaviors, sexual compulsivity, paraphilias and fetishes. Clients benefit from exploring issues surrounding sexual orientation, gender identity, asexuality, polyamory and kink. I am passionate about helping clients overcome the issues that affect their sexuality so that they more fully enjoy life.

I believe therapy works best and is most successful when there is a willingness to risk being vulnerable with a safe other. If you are someone who is motivated to learn more about themselves and take active steps to change this might be the right fit for you. My focus area and experience is working with women and both premarital and established couples. The client who will benefit best from the way I do therapy are those who are naturally self-reflective and those who find value in metaphor and symbolic language.

Our private practice is unlike most others. I am a pre-licensed clinical fellow at The Briggs Institute,Inc. Therapists at the Institute are graduates of the Marriage and Family Therapy Program at Lipscomb University, which holds its graduates to a much higher standard of clinical experience than the state requires, one that's far greater than other high quality masters programs in Nashville. Because we practice under the supervision of core Lipscomb faculty, we remain connected to academia. This means our work is informed by state-of-the-art scientific research that most private practice therapists can't easily access.

I have worked with individuals and couples for over forty years, helping them to capitalize on their strengths rather than focusing on their problems. I see my role as a co-participant with clients in the therapy process. I seek to enable individuals and couples to develop their inner resources with understanding and caring support. In such a setting, my clients gain the strength and freedom to solve or manage their problems in creative ways.

Together we will find the right path, and right set of practical tools, to help you overcome obstacles and become your best self. After over a decade-and-a-half working in mental health, I am skilled in the latest, evidence-based therapies available (e.g., Relational Mindfulness and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy). But no single approach works for all people at all times and, remaining flexible, we will create a safe therapeutic environment with the best combination of techniques that works for you. So many different psychotherapies exist today because there is no one approach that works at all times.

My approach to psychological healing is integrative, mixing psychodynamic, mind/body, transpersonal, mindfulness, and CBT approaches to psychotherapy. My philosophy of therapy stresses respect for the client and the client’s experience. Therapy often involves the exploration of family of origin issues and the impact of old conditioning on current functioning. I also emphasize the importance of developing existing personal strengths and resources. I often use a personality system called the Enneagram to clarify client strengths and issues. I have expertise in mindfulness. See my website, www.musiccitytherapy.com.

It is my honor to work with clients on paths of exploration, personal growth, and healing. Because of the pain that often brings us to therapy, I believe that safety, unconditional positive regard, and authenticity are of the utmost importance in the therapeutic relationship. My theoretical orientation in counseling is primarily psychodynamic and interpersonal within a humanistic framework. I believe that past experiences inform current understanding, and exploring such issues can be healing. Change can also be related to a new understanding of relational patterns and a new experience of relationship with the therapist and others.
