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.

I am a pre-licensed clinical fellow at The Briggs Institute. Therapists at the Institute are graduates of the Marriage and Family Therapy Program at Lipscomb University, which holds its graduates to a much higher standard of clinical experience than the state requires, one that is far greater than other high quality masters programs in Nashville. Because we practice under the supervision of core Lipscomb faculty, we remain connected to academia. This means our work is informed by state-of-the-art scientific research that most private practice therapists can't easily access.

Life can be both messy and beautiful. Life also brings so many opportunities to dive deeper, to transform, and to learn how to love ourselves and others with open hearts. I believe that we all deserve a space to let our feelings be felt. We all deserve to have our experiences witnessed and held with compassion and kindness. My hope is that the therapeutic relationship is a healing one and that the space we create together supports growth and curiosity. My approach to this work is rooted in compassion and human-to-human connection. I believe that authentic connection supports our capacity to grow and change.

It's my belief that within relationships we are both hurt and healed. I practice from a relational approach, specifically Attachment Theory. Attachment shapes how we view ourselves and others, and influences how we "do" close relationships. We may unconsciously carry feelings of anxiety, pain, humiliation, or even abandonment from our relationships. For example, early childhood experiences of sexual abuse, neglect, grief, loss, or vicarious trauma impact one's perception of safety and security. As a result, we may find it difficult to form satisfactory relationships in adulthood. Navigating through this process alone can be hard.Thankfully, you don't have to do it alone.

As a clinical art therapist, my intention is to listen to the individual’s needs and format a tailored creative art making experience to support the pace and direction the client wants to move, rather than conduct a traditional therapy session. I integrate mindfulness, to foster relaxation, with cognitive behavioral art therapy, which fosters clarity and produces practical interventions. Transcending the verbal confines of talk-based therapy, art therapy is naturally dynamic and person-centered, which means it gives clients the control and empowerment needed to explore their ideas in a flexible and non-threatening way.
