Optimal mental health includes 5 basic concepts. Balance is achieved through adding and subtracting parts of your life that are healthy and unhealthy. Being open minded and letting go of toxic habits is vital to growth. Grieving loss of yourself, others and ideals offers you an opportunity to heal. Recognizing how ready you are for change and beginning the natural process of feelings release without judgment is the final step in your journey to optimal mental health. You know you best and I invite you to begin to listen to your body, mind and soul.

Most of my clients are young children and families. Many of the families I see struggle with trauma. Most of the children and parents have struggled with behavioral challenges such as attachment issues, anxiety, self injuries, aggression, impulsivity, sleeping and mood disturbances. Many are suffering with grief such as the death of someone they loved, or divorce or even separation from a caregiver. Often, parents are unsure of how to address these issues with their children. All of my clients seek support and empowerment in order to be healthy and productive as individuals, as parents and as families.

**Currently has a waitlist** Asking for help can be a hard and scary thing to do. It takes courage to admit that you’re struggling. To me, therapy should be a safe space where you can be open, honest, and vulnerable without feeling ashamed, embarrassed, or judged. Some of my areas of interest and training include treating depression and other mood disorders, generalized anxiety, trauma/PTSD, substance abuse, domestic violence, and interpersonal challenges. I work primarily with adults and have a particular passion for working with women struggling with identity, self-esteem, relationship, & postpartum issues.

NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME: Navigating the sea of life requires a different set of skills throughout life. What works when you are 16 years old doesn’t work so well when you’re 40 years old. Oftentimes when life is passing by so quickly, adapting to the changes requires better coping skills, skills you've yet to acquire. Or maybe, your teen has all of a sudden became distant, argumentative, and secretive. You’ve tried to be supportive in their growing independence, yet still needing a home base, but the scales aren’t balancing out. This is when you understand that seeking outside intervention is necessary.

Patients want and desire independence from all addictive behaviors; they have goals and dreams and want to tell their own stories; but need understanding and support to overcome the sense of helplessness, hopelessness, powerlessness and worthlessness to regain control; self-regulate and achieve overall happiness and wellbeing.

Though many of those solutions have either not worked or were short lived I also understand that one of the most difficult things to do in life is to reach out for help.

I believe we all go through events and situations in life that we may need support or resources to help us get back to where we want and need to be. Living through traumatic events can cause significant pain and turmoil but also create strength and growth in a person. Being able to reach out and ask for help is one of the strongest things a person will do, and I truly respect anyone who reaches out for that support when it is needed. Using your life experiences and strengths that you have created in your life, we can work together to create the framework and structures in your life that can provide support.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Tennessee with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based therapists in Tennessee can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Tennessee MBCT therapists.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Tennessee are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Tennessee. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Tennessee
