It can be a difficult task to find the right therapist and the options online can feel incredibly overwhelming. I understand that it's not easy to allow yourself to be vulnerable with a stranger about some of life's most difficult challenges. By looking for a therapist, you've already made the hardest step, the first one. Often things in our lives can leave us feeling alone, unheard, or confused. It takes a lot of courage to admit that we need help sometimes and even more courage to ask for it.

Life is filled with many different seasons. Some of those seasons can be messy, stressful, confusing, or exhausting. When we walk through difficult seasons, sometimes we need someone walking alongside us. My personal and professional experiences have led me to systemic view of whole-body health, meaning that physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health are deeply intertwined. With this focus, I seek to help individuals of all ages engage how this is at play in their individual lives. If you're in a difficult season, I would be glad to journey with you towards whole person growth!

My clients often are experiencing a life that feels without meaning and control. A life that is filled with chronic stress. This stress results from conflict in our relationships and multiple roles in life. At other times,this stress is residue from unresolved life events that have depleted the ability to see through a lens of love. Life then naturally becomes driven by fear. If you are seeking to learn a way to create a life that feels worth living, despite any circumstance. I can teach you the way. The majority of my clients are experiencing anxiety, anger and depression in their daily life.

I am a Certified Eating Disorders Specialist (CEDS), seeing patients in person and via telehealth. I offer individual, family, and group therapy at my practice. I am regularly inspired by the individuals and families I see for therapy, and am humbled by the fact I am someone with whom they choose to share their greatest pain, their deepest secrets, and meaningful epiphanies about the world in which they live. Every person is different, every situation is different, and the number of variables present are infinite. I enjoy taking this journey with patients as they work to regain a feeling of being whole.

We humans don't exactly love uncertainty or discomfort. If you're like most humans, you've tried strategies to escape, ignore, or numb out from those bad thoughts and feelings. And if you're like most people, none of those strategies really helped resolve for the long term... maybe those strategies even cost you something valuable, like your relationships, your peace of mind, or your sense of self. If this sounds like you, you are not alone, and you are certainly not broken or crazy; you are simply human, doing your best to figure out how to navigate the challenges of living in this world, while also trying to find your place in it.

You feel yourself over-functioning…everywhere… all of the time. Burned out and overwhelmed, you’re feeling stuck in a pattern that try as you might, you just can’t seem to break free of. You’re recognizing that maybe, just maybe, there’s something deeper going on that keeps you striving so incredibly hard. Feeling disconnected from yourself and others, you’re exhausted, you’ve hit your limit, and something’s gotta give.

My job is to help you live your best life. To do that, I need to understand your struggles from YOUR perspective. I am here to listen. Don’t be embarrassed about that social media post that made you feel "personally attacked." Some people are afraid to tell their therapist they feel like they are dealing with anxiety, depression, ADHD, Autism, etc. - but I want to know these things. Self-advocacy is not self-diagnosis and there is a reason it spoke to you. I would like the opportunity to help you to better understand your symptoms, and come up with a plan to manage them.

What type of Knoxville 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Knoxville?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
