Sometimes life gets crazy--but that doesn't mean you are! You feel different, defeated, and depressed. No one understands you. You're overwhelmed and can't imagine how life will ever get any better, so why try? Yet here you are searching for an escape from the numbness creeping up on you. Maybe you are tired of faking your way through each day and want to experience authentic happiness. Let's embark on a journey to help you become who you want to be instead of merely enduring who you are. You can be confident, courageous, and content in life.
You can embrace your individuality and overcome the obstacles that keep you from experiencing joy. You can abandon toxic perfectionism and learn to accept your beautifully bona fide self—flaws and all. The best part? You don't have to do this alone. Let's sit down together and plot a course towards where it is you want to be.
Appointments are available for morning, mid-day, and late afternoons Wednesday through Saturday at either the Shelbyville location (currently Wednesday only) or Greenwood location (Thursday through Saturday). Telehealth is available Wednesday through Saturday. Email me for more information or to schedule an appointment. I am happy to answer any questions!

I often work with individuals struggling with anxiety and depression. After getting to know your distinct "flavor" of symptoms, we'll devise a plan to establish coping skills to reduce the frequency, intensity, and duration of those symptoms. We'll review how well those skills work and tweak as needed all while providing you with a place to talk about life's stressors.

I am a creative nerd, so I like to incorporate creativity and fandoms into my approach. I enjoy learning about what fandoms other people enjoy and using those to create useful metaphors and coping skills for life. I also provide play therapy, sand tray therapy, and a variety of fidgets in the office for clients to meet their sensory needs. I also use CBT, Narrative Therapy, and ACT often.
