According to the World Health Organization, suicide is second leading cause of death among those with ages ranging from 15 to 29. Many professionals tell us that having direct conversations about mental health is essential for those who are struggling with depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and other forms of mental illness. However, in my experience, these are often difficult subjects to discuss. There is often fear about "saying the wrong thing" or "not doing enough."

I have joined with many individuals with a diverse range of ages, cultures, and symptoms including sexual trauma, family conflict, attachment issues, suicidal thoughts, self-harm, poor self-esteem, anxiety, and anger.
Through the therapeutic relationship, I provide a safe and inviting place to be vulnerable, to process life adjustments, and to begin learning healthy coping skills. I have over 7 years of experience engaging in counseling relationships with children, adolescents, and adults in the Chattanooga area. I believe that change begins in the context of an authentic relationship and that every unique story deserves to be heard. Drawing from family systems, interpersonal, and cognitive-behavioral approaches, I provide evidence-based therapy for both individuals and families.

I enjoy working with adults, and couples on issues including trauma, complex family dysfunction, relational or marital distress, identity issues, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, depression and additional mental illness.
It takes tremendous courage to choose to walk through difficult places on the path towards healing, and it takes even more courage to invite a counselor to walk with you. I consider it an honor to join with my clients as they face the challenges in life, whether it be wounds from trauma, struggles with managing mood and thoughts, issues with relational functioning, sexuality or unhealthy coping. I believe there is power in relationship and I consider it a joy to help clients learn how to better relate to themselves, others and the world around them.

You’ve been the rescuer, the caregiver, the rock for years, and it’s finally taking its toll on you. You’ve learned to hide your fatigue and your pain really well. In fact, you’d be surprised if anyone knew how much you really struggle and how your thoughts race at night when the world is quiet. Words like “weak” or “not fit for duty” push you to burrow down further into your isolation. But what if there was a better way? Together, we are going to work through this. You have finally found a place to exhale.

We as human beings desire to be known, to love and to be loved. Often times, our attempts to give and receive the love we long for becomes tangled in a web of our past mistakes or the mistakes of others, leaving us feeling alone, arguing with our spouse, overwhelmed with anxiety, extreme sadness and hopelessness, and facing life circumstances we feel powerless to overcome. Counseling is a great opportunity to begin the process of handling these paralyzing issues in a safe environment. Seeking out help requires courage and pursuing counseling can be a scary process, so congratulations on taking the first step towards change.

"Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness." -Desmond Tutu When we can hear our complete inner voice, we are able to begin tearing away from shame and move toward hope. Relationships & community are the most important parts of our life. This can include relationship with your spouse/partner, family, friends, spirituality, self, etc. Family and friends are a wonderful resource in order to better our relationships but sometimes we need a different place to talk about who we are, what we are struggling with, and how to make sense of our lives.
