I believe the care, trust, and honesty in the counseling relationship can help people move from surviving (maybe just barely) to thriving. I want my clients to experience renewal in their lives.

I offer counseling and dance/movement therapy to help people move through life’s ups and downs. I can help people through normal challenges as well as with diagnosis and treatment of disorders. Additionally, I offer Chattanooga’s first dance/movement therapy private practice. Dance/movement therapy uses body language and creative expression to build connection, awareness and healing. This modality is effective, in part, because: communication is 90% nonverbal; everyone moves in some way; putting things into words is sometimes too difficult; and emotions and struggles often have a physical component.

My background is very unique. At first glance, I look like a relatively "normal" person but my life has taken me down some truly unexpected paths. The most pertinent being that I live with a rare genetic disease and lost several important organs as a young man. Subsequently, I have dealt with many physical and emotional difficulties as a result of this impediment. I say this not to evoke pity but to explain where my deep sense of empathy and understanding stem from. Because I have felt the depths of suffering that many other people carry, I know that with proper guidance, care and fortitude, there is always hope and possibility.

I love working with Older Adults! I have over 20 years of experience working primarily with the older adult population. I have also enjoyed my work with families who are dealing with stressors related to a parent or another loved one getting older. I have dealt with anxiety from a young age, grief and loss issues that have hit a deep place within me. I have parents who are getting older, and have enjoyed being a part of my nephews' lives as they mature. I look forward to sitting with, listening, and respectfully walking with you on your journey. I hope to help you navigate whatever changes lie ahead in a holistic, helpful way.

I identify as queer and consider it an honor to hold space for my community here in Chattanooga. I believe therapy can only be effective when the client feels safe and comfortable, so I am committed to providing accessibility in my office for all body types and abilities.

Therapy is a place of self-discovery where unique strengths can be uncovered and where self-compassion can be learned to support you during a difficult season. I offer a solid and steady presence in the midst of a chaotic time- a place for the lonely, afraid, overwhelmed and misunderstood to be heard. My approach to therapy is rooted in a systems and relational perspective, which means looking at life history and context to evaluate the impact current and past relationships have on functioning. I also use mindfulness skills and Brainspotting to aid in coping and increase functioning.

Have you ever had someone ask how you’re doing, then completely check out before you have the chance to answer? There is transformative power in simply being heard. My goal is to allow you that experience because that is where healing and change will start. Together, we can work toward finding solutions that will support your relationships, your goals, and your life. Our struggles come in a variety of packages: painful life events, dealing with self-sabotaging behaviors (like addictions), a birth condition or disability, walking through the fear and pain when you’re told your child has a disabling condition.

I enjoy working with clients to clear past trauma or current blocks and assimilate the gifts that they discover within the process of unlocking habitual patterns and rejecting internal lies. I use mindful practice to support clients as they learn to become less judgmental of themselves and others and more compassionate. I believe that within this spaciousness we are able to open up into more of our true selves so that we have more insight and a broader view of our experiences. I see this as a creative, healing process.

What type of Chattanooga mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Chattanooga?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
