About

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.
As an "eclectic psychotherapist," I view therapy as a collaborative effort that we shape together starting by exploring what could be the best fit for you as a unique individual. Together we will help you achieve your specific goals rather than operating as if every question has the same answer.
I have a number of speciality areas (including Depression, Anxiety, Addictions, & Creativity) and have worked in a variety of settings including Vanderbilt University's Psychological and Counseling Center. For more information (including about my work as a published author and professor) please do also visit my website - nashvillepsychotherapyandcounseling.com.
