“Why should the world be over-wise, in counting all our tears and sighs? Nay, let them only see us, while we wear the mask.” -Paul Laurence Dunbar This is an excerpt from one of my favorite poems, “We Wear the Mask”. The poem best describes how most of us navigate this world, while carrying around masked depression, anxiety, trauma, guilt, and even addiction. Although putting on a “game face” is how we function to survive, sometimes that harms us more than protects us. As a therapist, I can help you safely remove that mask and take steps to improve your mental wellness.

Welcome! I am a licensed clinical social worker with a background in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solution focused brief therapy (SFBT), trauma work, relapse and crisis prevention. The start of my career included working with sexual assault and domestic violence survivors, along with the geriatric population. In the last 15 years, my focus has been women's health and perinatal mood disorders. As a clinician, I am aligned with trauma informed care and have rooted my practice in understanding the impact of adverse childhood events (ACE). At the present, I am trained in EMDR treatment and pursuing certification.

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.

Rachel Held Evans wrote that "we live inside an unfinished story." Are you lacking clarity about what you want to do with your life? Did you have a difficult or confusing childhood, and now struggle with connection to others? Did you experience a traumatic event or relationship that has been difficult to overcome on your own? Do you struggle in relationships and wonder why you have the same problems time and time again? Do you have a chronic illness and experience the emotional pain, disappointment, and despair it can bring? If any of this resonates with you, I can help you write the rest of your story.

As one of a few psychotherapists in Memphis who is also AASECT Certified as a sex therapist, I treat a full range of sexual, relationship and intimacy issues. Sex is one of the deepest and most powerful experiences we have, yet it can also cause distress and embarrassment when it does not go smoothly. Compounding the problem, many have been socialized to feel uncomfortable with sex or haven't received accurate sexual health information. Many people struggle in silence with sexual dysfunction and others have erotic interests that might be considered unusual by some- any of the above can result in tremendous amounts of shame.

I truely believe every person already has the capacity, ability, and knowledge they need to live a life they value and develop a better understanding of their inner world. I enjoy supporting children, teens, and adults in the therapy process. Those I support are often having challenging emotional experiences like depression, anxiety, grief, and shame. Often these feelings are linked to trauma, navigating life changes, relationships with family/friends/significant others, body-image, mild disordered eating, grief, behavioral issues, and animal related experiences.

In a world that continues to turn with or without us, we often wonder where we can get off in order to regroup. When we are expected to fulfill all of the everyday roles that we have taken on, we tend to lose touch with ourselves. My purpose is to provide an open, restorative and non-judgmental healing space for you. I am pleased to work with individuals who want help with anxiety, depression, trauma and grief. As well as providing support during life transitions, unexpected changes and personal growth.
