You are doing a brave thing. Anxiety, panic attacks, and depression can play a role in keeping us from seeking help outside of our known comfort zone. But there is help available, and hope for a better life. I specialize in working with anxiety, depression, and trauma and PTSD symptoms. We may cope in ways that work in the moment, but come back in the form of panic attacks, isolation, fatigue, lack of focus, appetite changes, difficulty staying motivated, and feeling constantly on edge or numb. If anxiety is hindering your quality of life, or your depression is too heavy to carry alone, welcome. This is a safe place to unpack these.

Families, relationships and connections with others impact your quality of life, mental health, and physical health. Relationships cause great joy and unfortunately can cause great pain when they are toxic or off track. Are past relationships haunting your current relationship or self-image? Do you have difficulty forming or maintaining relationships with friends or significant others? Suffered abuse or abandonment in a relationship? Experiencing grief from the loss of a loved one? Have you experienced infidelity in your marriage? These difficult experiences can feel like they define you and become overwhelming at times, but there is hope!
My passion for working with individuals (children, adolescents, and adults of all ages) is rooted in my faith in God. I utilize skills, tools, and techniques in a modern "human to human" approach to help my clients find their hope and passion for life. Whether you have abuse & trauma, anxiety, ADHD, child and adolescent issues, depression, divorce recovery, mood disorder, eating disorder, addiction or substance use, grief & loss, parenting struggles, self-esteem, or social skills, assisting you in finding hope, I consider a divine appointment.
Family. This word may bring up feelings of warmth, or it may bring up feelings of anxiety, suffering, or helplessness. You want to reclaim the feelings of safety, security, contentment, peace, and love that once accompanied your hopes or thoughts of what your family could be. Or maybe your goal is to start off on the right foot, with your recent or upcoming marriage, or to ensure that your child is off to an emotionally healthy start in their younger years. Whichever the case, healthy families require focus, intentional work, and can sometimes use outside assistance from a caring professional.
I started Aptitude Behavioral Services, LLC to service school-age children in the East TN area. I love working with children through pre-teen ages and have also worked with a few higher-functioning teenagers. My typical day involves working with families that face challenges with behavior and working directly with children to decrease these behaviors while building skill deficits. I enjoy including family in my sessions and want to empower caregivers and family members so that they are equipped to handle behavioral challenges.

There are times in our lives that we can feel stuck, uncertain, scared, and immobilized. Coming to terms with your own story and the image of yourself can be daunting. We can feel this way maybe because of a break up, onset of depression, sexual issues, problems with connecting with others, or simply a life transition. You’re uncertain if you can experience healing, but I can tell you that there is hope! Therapy is an opportunity meant to be safe, secure, and a process to learn how to thrive again. I’m here to walk you through the process of finding meaning in your own story, working through shame and doubt, and finding connection.
In my practice, I strive to meet my clients where they are, establish a strong relationship built on trust, empathy, sincerity, and a strong desire to grow. I embark upon each journey with a new client ready for the twists and turns of the counseling relationship, but ultimately hope to provide a healing presence for each client. I aim to cater to their goals, as I make it a part of my practice for the client to develop their own goals. Together, we tackle whatever issues arise, and find a common ground and begin the journey to healing.
