I integrate skill-building, somatic and attachment-based work as well, as I firmly believe we are holistic creatures requiring holistic care.
Hello! Helping individuals to heal from their pasts and grow into the best version of themselves is something I truly love. Today, we know that trauma settles into our brains and bodies in ways that time cannot fully heal (despite the old adage, “time heals everything”) . Would you like to be more present in your daily life, have a healthier relationship to yourself and others? I would love to work together to help you heal from your past, so that you can live life more fully today.

I incorporate client-centered humanism, existentialism, and attachment-based family systems.
I help Gen-Xers, millennials, and college students struggling with a sense of disconnection and loneliness to reawaken your authentic self and find deeper meaning and purpose in life. I adapt specific intervention tools to the individual needs of each client. I do this by working on a collaborative path with you to develop a stronger and healthier sense of self, make peace with your inner critic, and find confidence and hope to reconnect with others. I am licensed in 4 states, convenient for those who travel frequently, have multiple residences, and college students who attend school in a different state than their home.

Entering therapy is brave. My goal as a counselor is to create a relationship centered on compassion, openness, and trust, qualities necessary to facilitate healing and growth. All our experiences, from childhood to present day shape us. They impact our relationship with ourselves, others, and how we show up in the world. My role as a counselor is to provide a safe space to allow you to access the emotional and mental blocks that may be limiting fulfillment and joy in your life. Our bodies hold so much internal wisdom, often times we need some guidance slowing down, learning to connect, and listen to their messages.

I work primarily with adults who have experienced early life trauma and/or adverse experiences. Maybe you are having difficulty expressing needs and setting boundaries within relationships, are experiencing panic attacks, feel anxious in social situations, or are having difficulty living in the present. Your feelings are valid regardless of what you’ve been told or what your experiences have led you to believe. You deserve to see yourself differently and be present in your life.

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.

Welcome to my practice! You inspire me! It takes a great deal of courage to reach out and ask for help and I admire that! Sometimes our expected life path shifts and it can feel extremely overwhelming to find our footing and get back on track to living the life we deserve. My blended therapeutic approach of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness can help you do just that. I strongly believe that in order to make meaningful changes in our lives, we have to get to the core beliefs (both about the self and about the world we live in) that are driving our behaviors.

I have the schooling and credentialing required to be a good therapist. More importantly I have been married for 37 years and raised three children. I understand how difficult it is to make marriage work. Through supportive friends, involvement in my church community and a life-time of raising a family I have gained wisdom helpful in addressing relationship problems. I have treated people with depression, anxiety, grief, loss, couples struggling to hold their marriage together. When appropriate I integrate a Christian perspective into counseling. I believe that understanding hidden emotions helps couples care for each other. I work at listening and developing solutions.

Life is experienced in relation to other people-Optimal functioning occurs within the context of relationships. To achieve this, I use a Cyclical Psychodynamic approach. This is an integrative approach to therapy, which combines the most effective parts of empirically supported therapies- relational psychodynamics, cognitive-behavioral therapy, attachment theory, and family systems theory. It works by creating corrective emotional experiences in therapy and developing new ways of interacting with others outside of therapy. This process facilitates increased awareness, resilience, better strategies, and increased effectiveness.

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.
