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.

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.

I believe we want to live the life we have always known was ours; the life of our soul. It can be hard to do because we are human and live in an imperfect world. It's easy to lose ourselves in this process as we try to meet the expectations imposed on us by others. I provide a comfortable place where you can feel free to be your real, authentic self and experience a more clear connection to your life's purpose. I enjoy assisting you as you nurture your body, mind and spirit in order to become more whole.

Are you struggling with worry or fear that easily spirals out of control, at times to the point of panic? Are you noticing a negative impact on your work/school or your relationships (including with yourself!)? I specialize in helping smart, caring women who struggle with anxiety learn to find greater balance and ease. The women who work with me are the kind, responsible types who tend to their loved ones and to work/school, but who overlook themselves. By the time they get in touch with me, they feel exhausted, stressed out, guilty, and ashamed. They tend to overthink everything and feel easily overwhelmed by their emotions.

Most people suffer some form of it at some point in their lives. When left untreated, it can lead to more severe symptoms and a whole host of diagnoses. I practice primarily Cognitive Behavioral techniques. I will talk to you about your beliefs, expectations, and how you experience the world. I'll teach you to be more accepting of yourself, so you can stop judging and reacting from created stories. I will also help you improve foundational behaviors.

"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.

I am passionate about working with clients as they navigate through the everyday pressures and requirements to perform and be relevant among their peers. Too often today, one can lose sight of their own gifts and strengths, while overly focusing on the negatives. Adding in a constant demand for perfection can set us up for impossible standards to live up to. I enjoy helping clients look past the negative and to understand how their strengths make them unique. I want to help them journey through adversity to build resiliency, which will help them overcome challenges of any kind.
