I like to think of the world of therapy, counseling, etc. through the eyes of a child. My grandchildren specifically. When trying to answer the question; “what is it that you do at work Granddad?” After explaining the process a bit one of them chimed in and simply said: “Oh! You help people that need help!” That is the essence of what I hope to do.

I am accepting new clients and taking in-network Cigna Insurance. As a former USAF Combat Medic and civilian paramedic with over two decades of experience, I have dedicated my life to serving others in times of crisis. Witnessing the toll that trauma takes on individuals firsthand, I made the profound decision to transition from the front lines of emergency response to the forefront of mental health care. Driven by the loss of my comrades and friends to the silent battles of PTSD, I embarked on a new journey to make a difference in a different capacity.

I love working with families, couples and individuals (both teens and adults). I have a huge heart for working with teens and young adults and helping them have a more cohesive relationship with their family or at least repairing damage from their childhood. I can help couples rekindle their intimacy and learn good communication and boundaries. I've dealt with many issues like anger, anxiety, OCD, depression, family dynamics, trauma and so much more.

I see the counseling process as a path towards healing and hopefulness. I offer virtual counseling sessions for clients in the state of Tennessee. I work well with clients who are developing coping skills, working through trauma, and experiencing anxiety, stress, depression. I believe that counseling should be used as an early intervention to help support people who are struggling with their emotional and mental wellness. If we utilize counseling throughout our lifetime and during times of either difficulty, trauma, grief, and relationship challenges it can increase our quailty of life and enhance our wellbeing.

Healthy relationships are not the mystery that most of us believe them to be. Love may be the reason that we commit to a relationship, but few know how to sustain that wonderful, secure feeling. There are skills that all of us must learn in order to create and manage our relationships so that our dreams don't go the way of statistics and have us end up separated from our loved one. While individual therapy has been linked to worsening relationship issues, my research-based training provides the opposite: HOPE. Let me work with you to stop the negative patterns that are taking you away from the partnership you wish to have.

If you’re dealing with the effects of trauma, life can be so challenging. You may struggle with overreacting to everyday situations, negative thoughts or emotions about yourself or others, fear of intimacy, nightmares or flashbacks, or physical symptoms. Any kind of trauma—emotional, spiritual, physical, sexual—can severely impact your ability to feel safe and live well. In addition to working with individuals with trauma, I also work with couples on a wide range of issues - from communication skills to betrayal recovery. For both individuals and couples, I work with adults, age 21 and up.

No matter how much effort you put forth in your significant relationships, the message you want them to receive, seems lost in the confusion of misunderstandings. You want to love and be loved, but you continue to feel alone and sometimes devalued. What is their problem --or your's? How can you connect in healthy ways and maintain your own personal values and goals? As your mind continues to repeat memories of failed attempts to fix what has gone wrong, you don't know where to turn for real help. Everyone seems to have an answer, but no one sees the whole picture. There are times when an objective listener is the best option.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
