Deep connections sustain and heal the human spirit. When we are deeply connected to ourselves, our values, our story, and our inner workings, we can thrive. When we are genuinely connected to others, to family, and to community, we can flourish. Often, however, disconnection and fracture prevent the kind of thriving that might be possible. Through my therapeutic approach, I aim to work collaboratively with clients to explore both areas of disconnection and suffering, as well as opportunities for re-connection, for the deepening of current connections, and for lasting change.

As women, we play many roles in our lives. While these roles can be so fulfilling, they can also be very overwhelming or even underwhelming. This can lead to conflict within your family, within your relationships or within yourself. This may leave you feeling like there just has to be more to life than this. Have you found yourself feeling as though you have tried everything to deal with these feelings? Wondering what to do with all of these emotions coming up for you? Tired of feeling as though you are constantly fighting with your significant other or child? Then, it might be time to reach out for help.

After having been in practice for over 11 yrs, I understand therapy can be a very scary process. It takes tremendous courage to reach out for help. I was honored to be contracted by the TV show "THE DOCTORS" to work with one of their case studies. I have also been honored to be recognized by Threebestrated.com as one of the top 3 MFT's in the Nashville area. I practice a systems perspective of therapy meaning people are comprised of an accumulation of family dynamics, life's events and attachments. I practice eclectic therapy styles to meet clients within their comfort zone. I utilize a sliding scale for affordable services.

Congratulations on taking this step in your journey towards health and healing. It is my goal to help create a safe, nonjudgemental space for my clients to build a more compassionate relationship with their own pain and suffering. When we take a more compassionate and loving stance with our own pain, we can then begin to feel more empowered to move towards the things that we most deeply value and desire in life. You matter, your voice matters, your pain matters. It would be my honor to walk with you on your journey.

"Love and safety heal -- everything else is just tools."* And our places of deepest pain can, over time, not only heal but become medicine for others. I offer a safe space and caring presence to accompany clients who are ready to unburden their souls (psyche) and take a "depth" approach to understanding their lives and struggles. We have all been intricately shaped by our history and choices, our personality and life circumstances. The more we come to understand the complex tapestry that has led to our present situation, the freer we become to move forward differently, more joyful and whole.

We are all more than the worst things that have been done to us, and we are more than the worst things we have done.

I believe we are relational creatures designed to live in intimate relationship with God, Self, and Others and attention must be given to all three areas in order to experience deep transformation. My desire is to walk with clients toward health by exploring their story to uncover the themes, shaping beliefs, and coping strategies that keep us from living fully. Since relational healing takes place in relationship, I strive to create a safe place for my clients to process, grow, be challenged, make personal and relational discoveries, and move toward healing, wholeness, and freedom.

Understanding what life means to you can be one of the hardest questions to understand. Are you someone seeking emotional relief on a daily basis in ways you wish you didn't? Do you get triggered by people and find yourself more upset then you should be? Are you someone who finds it hard to separate from your job when you are not supposed to be working? Do you actually know what makes you happy? These are just a few, simple examples of what we can explore together. No matter where you are in life, you can live intentionally and fully.

I believe that we have the capacity to break the cycle and live out of our authentic self but we sometimes get stuck. We long to be fully seen and known. The challenge comes in allowing ourselves to be known. My main specialties are around trauma, anxiety, depression and addiction (porn addiction, sexual addiction, sexual shame & trauma, marital conflict, and other intimacy struggles). I have received specialized training in treating both trauma and sexual addiction.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Nashville view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Nashville are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Nashville

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Nashville you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Nashville and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Nashville or family therapy in Nashville.
