I enjoy working with children and families who are struggling to understand each other and get along. A lack of communication and an inability to express feelings appropriately are often the main issues in these relationships. I work with not only the children/teens to increase their abilities in these areas, I also work with the parents and siblings to help them understand how they can help the relationship be less turbulent.

I currently have a long waitlist! I understand the concern and confusion that parents may have when their child experiences difficulties in school, home, or elsewhere. I believe in working together with parents to help their children. I take time to get to know my clients so I can offer the most appropriate, individualized care for them. I trained in educational and behavioral psychology and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. In addition to direct treatment services, I am able to provide evaluations with extensive reports to aid in treatment planning.

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.

It takes courage to do what you are doing, and I commend you for taking the first step. Fear, anxiety, grief, and depression are emotions that we all experience. They aren’t unusual, but at times they can feel like a runaway train, stealing your thoughts, time, energy and happiness. I work together with my clients on managing and regulating these overwhelming thoughts and emotions, and help them to draw from their own strength to live a life that’s purposeful and fulfilling according to their values. You are the expert on you, and I will be there to give insight, feedback, and offer new perspectives and coping skills.

I DO NOT ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS. I maintain a short waiting list for the clients that were referred specifically to me. Please, continue looking. I cannot respond to the new inquiries. I understand how difficult it is to ask for help and how painful it could be to talk about things that are not working with a stranger. I feel honored every time my client opens up to me. I treat my clients with respect, kindness, and warmth. In my experience, therapeutic relationship is the foundation of the healing process and I work very hard to help my clients feel heard, understood, supported, and safe in my office.

I work with a wide range of individual and couple's issues both faith-based and non faith-based. My expertise is in the treatment of attachment injury and complex trauma. Often clients are unaware issues with their partner, or family are rooted in an attachment injury and/or complex trauma. They come in because they feel stuck, frustrated, or exhausted with themselves and their relationships. Nothing is working and they just want the pain to stop. Once we begin the therapeutic process it becomes clear attachment injuries and/or complex traumas are informing how they live, love, and do life-- and new understanding brings new hope.

Married to a Law Enforcement Officer for 30 years, I know first-hand the unique challenges these types of relationships face. In our sessions I strive to create an environment where it's safe to be authentic and take off the mask. Without safety it's almost impossible to cultivate a trusting therapeutic relationship. One in which genuine transformation can take place. I specialize in working with couples struggling with infidelity, communication issues, emotional abuse, addictions, and trauma. Helping individuals take back ownership of their lives by teaching them somatic awareness.

What keeps you up at night? Feeling overwhelmed? Problems with relationships? Anxiety? No matter what you are struggling with, no matter what worries you, you do not have to go through this alone. A lot of therapists focus solely on identifying people's weaknesses. I will help you build up your weak areas, but I will also help you identify & develop your strengths so that rather than just getting by, you can really thrive. I specialize in working with anxiety-related issues: panic attacks, OCD, phobias, skin-picking & hair-pulling, perfectionism, etc.

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.

Do you struggle with anxiety, depression, or wonder where you “fit in?” Do you struggle getting out of bed, have trouble falling sleep, or find yourself crying or “blowing up” more often?  You may be feeling isolated from your friends and family, or have a difficult time reaching out to your social supports. Maybe you are often feeling emotionally exhausted and mentally drained by routines that you used to accomplish with ease. Are you struggling to adapt to the increasingly chaotic world around you, or are you feeling a sense of loss for the life you had before the pandemic?

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.
