I am particularly skilled working alongside pre-adolescents, adolescent , young adult females, and parents of teens, who feel stuck and in the trenches of family dynamics, significant relationships, life circumstances, and/or mental health conditions. Your teen may be desperately trying to find an outlet to channel their feelings. Are they overachievers pouring all their energy into school or sports? Does your teen feel lost, anxious, confused, or indecisive? Perhaps they bottle their anger, cut, or show you their rebellious side.

I focus on couples, family, and adolescent counseling.
We all experience anxiety, depression, grief, and loneliness at times. And we all struggle with memories from childhood that greatly influence our thinking. These things make up many of the stories we use to control how we feel about the quality of our lives. Changing those stories can help you build the life you desire.

I work with issues including, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, trauma, family conflict, grief/loss, self-harm, divorce, college stress and adolescent issues.
I know that change can be hard, and that making the decision to call a therapist is difficult. I believe that we are all capable and deserving of living our best life, and that feeling safe and supported makes it easier to make those changes. Life can be messy, and I am here to help. I have a passion for helping others, and am grateful I get to be a part of that change process. I utilize an individual approach to meet the needs of each client, and want each client to feel heard, valued, and understood.

Navigating the sea of life requires a different set of skills throughout life. What works when you are 16 years old doesn’t work so well when you’re 40 years old. Oftentimes when life is passing by so quickly, adapting to the changes requires better-coping skills, skills you've yet to acquire. Or maybe, your teen has all of a sudden became distant, argumentative, and secretive. You’ve tried to be supportive in their growing independence, yet still needing a home base, but the scales aren’t balancing out. This is when you understand that seeking outside intervention is necessary.

Over my 10 years in the mental health field, I have worked with a wide range of child and adolescent clients.
As an adult, taking that first step towards healing can be difficult, anxiety producing, and scary. This is no different for children. Children experience those same emotions and stress but may struggle to express them in a healthy manner. Reaching out to someone you can trust can help your child begin to find their direction in an ever-changing society. Finding a judgement free place where life's challenges can be addressed is difficult, but I can offer that space in a comfortable atmosphere with years of experience.

I welcome adolescent and adult clients, as well as couples and children.
Finding a therapist that is a good fit for you is pivotal to a beneficial and meaningful experience in therapy. A strong therapeutic relationship is the vehicle for change and the strongest predictor of treatment success. My international education encouraged me to adopt a flexible, curious, and inclusive perspective on the factors that contribute to one's identity and difficulties (e.g., religion, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation, etc.). I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental space to support clients' introspective journeys, exploration of identities, and understanding of the self, others, and the world.

Areas of therapeutic interest include: anxiety and depression in adolescent and young adult populations, conflict and communication in marital and pre-marital couples, as well as whole family therapy with families undergoing life transition.
I am a Certified Restoration Therapist, which guides my approach in working with clients of all ages and issues. Restoration Therapy seeks to provide opportunities for people to escape cycles of conflict that can easily turn them into their worst selves when painful feelings arise. Restoration therapists help you map what shape these conflict cycles take, and map a way out, so you can regulate those difficult emotions and stay on track. In working with me, you can expect to identify longstanding patterns of interaction that may hinder current relationships and begin to reshape those patterns into a more healthy and whole self.

I will work with your teen to develop the tools he or she needs to make it through a very difficult time in life.
People tell me that I’m easy to talk to. But I don’t just listen. I help you find out how the ways you are thinking or interacting are causing you problems, and I offer observations and possible solutions. You and I collaborate to figure out what solutions may fit for you, and how to make them work in your life. Together we build an understanding of what you are going through, and together we tackle the issues. Rather than relying on manualized “copy and paste” therapeutic approaches, my suggestions and observations are based on an in-depth understanding of you and your situation.

I am committed to working with children, adolescents, individuals and families who are in the midst of seeking understanding and guidance on the path towards healing. Everyone has a story to tell, and everyone deserves to be heard. When traumatic experiences occur, they can alter our view of ourselves and the world. Through therapy, we can work together to rewrite these narratives and beliefs. Who you are is greater than what you've done or had happen to you. I have worked intensely with trauma across the lifespan, adolescent and adult addiction and recovery, and a variety of mood and anxiety disorders.

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.

Are you troubled by self doubt, questioning your or your partner's level of commitment, or contemplating walking away from a relationship? Perhaps you are feeling disconnected from others or frustrated by an unsatisfying sex life. Is the conflict in your family extreme? Are you struggling to coparent effectively? You may be single and exasperated by the drama that sometimes comes along with dating. Or, a parent who is helplessly watching your child or adolescent struggle educationally or in social relationships. If any of these statements resonate with you, I can help you navigate your journey to contentment, confidence, and bliss.

The most genuine way I can think to start this personal statement is by disclosing how difficult I have found it to write what you are now reading (or skimming). I'd like to show you that I know your pain, but I don't know all the ins and outs of your many experiences leading up to this point in your life. What I do know is that there is often loneliness in feeling unseen, unknown, or misunderstood. I find meaning in working with individuals who feel detached or disconnected from others, their surroundings, or even themselves.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Knoxville and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
