I have received training in using somatic and attachment-based treatment models, including EMDR, SMART, IFS, and TBRI.
I work with adults and teens teens. I specialize in helping individuals and families heal from and cope with the impact of issues like trauma, abuse, grief, loss, adoption, attachment problems, anxiety, depression, life transitions, parenting challenges, family conflict, relationship struggles, and postpartum and women's issues. I believe every client I see is more than their problems or labels. I complete a thorough assessment, so I can customize treatment to meet clients where they are and help them toward their goals. I also create a supportive, non-judgmental atmosphere that supports reflection and healing.

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.

As a therapist and a fellow human, I have found that deepening our awareness of who we are and the struggles we face, within a supportive, safe relationship can help us navigate life’s obstacles in ways that we did not feel were possible on our own. It can be one of the most empowering gifts we can give ourselves. My therapeutic orientation is trauma, attachment, and somatic -informed, with a family systems lens. I offer creative, mindful, body-centered, and nature-inspired interventions within sessions as ways of tuning into ourselves, understanding our patterns, and cultivating a life we intentionally want to lead.

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.

Using modalities such as ACT, meditation, mindfulness, somatic work, EMDR, and other trauma-informed approaches, I aim to empower clients to realize their internal resources for healing and growth and come into alignment with their true self.
Life is a natural ebb and flow. However, when we get stuck in the ebb we can begin to develop patterns of being that do not serve our physical and emotional wellbeing; this can be a difficult place from which to emerge. The decision to seek guidance during these times is a bold act of self-compassion. We have incredible internal resources and an inherent capacity for healing. My role is to help guide clients back to connection with their authentic selves and others through the process of curious exploration, loving-kindness, and present moment awareness.

I believe in meeting clients where they’re at and utilize attachment based, somatic work, CBT, and mindfulness modalities in order to do so.
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 believe you are exactly where you need to be.... Right now. Rumi said it best: "The wound is the place where the light enters you." The suffering, the vulnerability, the anger and the fear are perfect opportunities to shine a light of awareness and begin healing. I offer a safe space for each awareness to unfold without judgement. My approach tends to be ecclectic and holistic, incorporating spiritual practices to raise your consciousness in order to create alignment with your heart, body, and mind so that healing may begin.

I utilize a Somatic Experiencing approach which helps clients to feel more grounded and integrated in a sometimes fragmented world.
Saturday and evening openings! Do you feel stuck? Do you want to make changes, but feel unsure where to begin? Maybe you're in a period of transition and struggling to feel grounded. These are situations we all experience throughout life, they're part of being human, but that doesn't make them any easier to face. We all deserve to live meaningful, purposeful, and authentic lives. Often it takes a collaborative effort to get to that place, and that's where I believe I can help. I work with clients to support them in sharing their stories, identifying values and making changes.

Research continues to show that mental health plays an integral role in our general health and well-being. In a world full of demands and stressors, it can be difficult to find the time to care for our mental health needs. I applaud you for making the time and taking the steps that got you here. I hope I have the opportunity to continue that journey with you. My specialty is working with both children and adults experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, grief/loss, and other trauma-related symptoms. The majority of my experience is in working with children and families with histories of trauma and emotional/behavioral needs.

Finding a space to feel safe, heard, and valued can be extremely difficult. It's even harder to find this space, when we're feeling overwhelmed by life. Over the past 11 years, I have learned that this essential piece- developing trust and safety with my clients- is the basis for healing and wholeness. I truly strive to put my clients and their needs first. If you're struggling with mental health challenges as a result of trauma or significant life stress, I would love to talk more with you about how we might work together to begin finding the peace or healing that you're seeking.

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.
