I have been in professional psychological practice since 1979, been married many years, raised 2 children and shared in raising 3 step-children, so I have many years of clinical and personal experience on which to draw. However, I am always learning and growing, and enjoy sharing the journey of self-discovery with my clients/patients. I tailor my psychological treatment with individuals (adults, adolescents, and children), couples, and families to each person's unique situation. I utilize a variety of different treatment approaches, depending on the problems presented, ranging from cognitive -behavioral, insight, family systems, to supportive reality therapy.

I utilize a solution-focused and person-centered approach through the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Trauma-Focused Therapy.
Life can feel like a struggle sometimes. We may have had negative experiences, and may find ourselves stuck in certain patterns or ways of reacting. As a therapist my goals are to explore and validate my clients’ experiences, help them better understand where our patterns come from and help to empower my clients to find new ways to move forward.

A private practice specializing in reality and cognitive behavioral therapy for children 16+, college students, and adults going through life transitions/crisis.
Life transitions can be complicated. Sometimes, the most exciting changes can be the most difficult. Fear of change can result in anxiety, depression, panic attacks, acting out behaviors, or abuse of substances/alcohol. I work with clients to reduce symptoms that can often be associated with life transitions. I use cognitive behavioral, solution focused, and reality based therapies with my clients to assist in improving communication, increasing coping skills, and to enhance work, school, or home relationships.

I encourage cognitive flexibility and self-compassion to help clients uncover and embrace their inner strengths, and to overcome life stressors.
"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change." - Carl Rogers - My work is fueled by a desire to empower clients to reach their fullest potential. From adolescents just beginning their journey, to adults continuing to create their path in life, I believe that all people posses the innate ability to create thriving, value-driven lives with the right support and encouragement. In our society today, no one is immune to depression and anxiety, and thus I believe the call for mental wellness and self-care is stronger today than ever before.

I bring to the table knowledge about mental health, primarily from a cognitive -behavioral perspective.
(Currently have waitlist) Some people feel stuck and unable to move past their worry, sadness, trauma, or grief. Others aren't quite sure why they feel the way they do, but know they want to feel differently. Coming to therapy can be a daunting and scary task, and finding the right therapist can feel overwhelming. My aim is to help people along their journey of becoming un-stuck and finding clarity. This process is easiest when patients feel comfortable opening up and do not have to fear being judged for their inner thoughts.

If you are ready to manage your feelings more effectively, review and update outdated beliefs, experience balance, enjoy more satisfying relationships, and make choices that better align with who your values, I will draw from my training & experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Family Systems and EMDR to help you achieve your goals.
Do you find yourself in internal arguments with your inner critic or feel so pressured by should’s that being stressed has become the norm? Do you miss your former, more alive self or notice that feelings you had hoped were resolved continue to generate painful memories? Are you struggling with unwanted behaviors - irritable outbursts, addictions, or indecisiveness? Or missing intimacy and positive communication with your spouse or partner? Though there is no "typical client", resolving these concerns or decreasing symptoms of anxiety, depression, or PTSD, are frequent reasons reported by my clients when they come to therapy.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Knoxville or for a Knoxville CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy. They include CBT therapists, CBT psychologists, CBT psychotherapists and CBT counselors.
