My approach is strengths oriented and utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic principals. An area of emphasis with respect to my practice is working with people who are interested in changing habits. Most "bad" habits start out as understandable responses to stress in our environment. With time, the consequences of our habits may cause us more stress than they alleviate.

Life can be difficult at times. Perhaps you are wanting to make some changes in your life, or to get through a challenging time. I believe that most of us CAN make the changes we deeply want to, particularly if we have a kind and knowledgeable advocate to that process. You may have reservations about asking for support. Know that when you do, you are bravely moving yourself forward to a better tomorrow. I strive to be a compassionate, trustworthy, and enthusiastic partner to my clients' growth processes.

Thank you for your consideration of my practice. I especially welcome your interest as the process and outcome of therapy are so connected to the therapy relationship itself. It is my experience that therapy is most helpful when it includes three elements-a highly competent and ethical therapist, a motivated client, and a collaborative and trusting relationship. The latter is essential because it creates the safe and supportive context which fosters enduring growth and change. My approach is integrative, embracing all aspects of the person, and always focused on the unique needs and hopes of my client.

Are you high achieving and successful, but struggle with an inner voice that tells you that you'll never be good enough? You may work extra hard to combat this critical inner voice with overworking. Yet you're left feeling empty and insignificant at the end of the day. The adolescents and adults that I see often struggle with managing difficult emotions, anxiety, depression, and/or challenging behaviors. They have often experienced painful things in the past that they have buried. Often my clients struggle to pinpoint a specific event from their past that has impacted them.

To me, the most important part of therapy lies in the relationship between the client and therapist. I have found that a fruitful therapeutic relationship is one based on trust, acceptance and compassion. In our work together, I will see you and accept you for who you are and what you bring with you. I believe you are the expert of your own experience. No one knows your story as well as you. In sessions, I will listen openly and non-judgmentally and reflect back to you what I hear. From these reflections we may gain insight into your experience together and find ways to better manage life’s challenges.

Hello! Looking for a therapist is not always an easy process but one that can open up great new possibilities. We can get "stuck" in painful ways. I'll work with you to choose goals and strategies and provide feedback on what I see and what I know. We'll identify your strengths, values and feelings and examine the stuck places. At times I'll challenge you to feel or try difficult things. At times we may laugh a little hysterically. The most successful clients approach the process with an openness and willingness: to show up, to speak honestly , to new ideas and new behaviors.

Each of our lives tells a story. That story may have been affected by things outside our control. Counseling provides an opportunity for you to become more active in changing your narrative. You have the opportunity to deal with your story on your terms. We all hit rough spots along this journey. Some events can leave you shaken. Deciding to begin counseling is an important decision. Sometimes people just need someone there to listen, challenge them, serve as a guide, provide encouragement or be supportive and nurturing as they make changes in response to life or relationship demands. For me, that is what counseling is.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Nashville, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

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.
