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.

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.

I am a Baby Boomer. I realize I have probably lived three-quarters of my life, during which I have experienced most of the situations one can experience throughout one's life. I still have a positive outlook on the time I have left, and I want all of my generation to feel that their presence on this earth has made a difference. I have counseled families who promised to "never put Mom in a nursing home". I have counseled those who never thought they would end up there. Retirees, divorcees, widows/widowers, empty nesters, mid-life crises, what's left now?, all are welcome. Latter life situations are my specialty.

Over the past 15 years, I have loved working with every angle of the family. If you looked at my schedule on any given day, you'd probably see a few married couples, some exhausted and burnt-out parents, a college student, a 4th-12th grader, someone having an affair, someone who has been crushed by a loss or a person who is wrestling through their attraction to the same gender. I often find that a person's willingness to come in and simply talk about things creates at least 50% of the change they are looking for.

Furthermore, my education combined with personal and professional experience has opened the door for me to work with clients who may be trying to leave an abusive relationship or who are trying to discern if they are are in an abusive/unhealthy relationship.

Have you ever heard the phrase, "You have to love yourself before you can love someone else?" - Well that's probably true and a great idea, but how do we actually do that?!? I work with clients to build skills and awareness around being more compassionate to themselves and by extension, more compassionate to others. As an act of self-love, we learn to set boundaries to protect ourselves, while doing so with kindness for others. We learn put the oxygen mask on ourselves first. Part of this process often involves healing wounds and trauma of our past, but it is also an every day in action practice.

One of biggest barriers today for people seeking mental health care is the stigma that mental health carries among certain groups of people, cultures or genders, specifically men. The second biggest barrier for people seeking care is that oftentimes, individuals think they don't really need help, they can handle it on their own and/or they are afraid of being transparent and vulnerable to a complete stranger. What will that person think of me? What if they think I'm a horrible or weak person or that I'm crazy or strange.
