About

Originally licensed in 1988, I've been in private practice since 1997 in Chattanooga, TN. I focus on crisis intervention and short-term psychotherapy to get clients stabilized and back out enjoying life ASAP. I do a thorough assessment of life to know past and current events may be impacting your current situation. I see life situations as developmental - not always pathological, thus I use education and learning to address life's challenges. While it's not all about your parents, one's history does play a major role in how we learn to cope with life. Be ready to learn some new ways to cope with life events.
I specialize in short-term therapy - my goal is to get you back out in life and enjoying as much as possible. I also specialize in crisis intervention - for everything from life crisis, grief, death, adjustment, suicide, homicide, human trafficking, disaster, medical crisis, etc. I completed a post-doctoral residency at Erlanger's Level 1 Trauma Center.
Life can be tough. Lots of expected and unexpected ups and downs, and abrupt left and right turns. Sometimes things come too quickly and overwhelm us. I can't make your life's situations disappear, but I can help you find ways to cope with life events so that you can regain your positive momentum to be the best you possible. Let's get started, shall we?
