I blend a variety of approaches to meet each client’s needs but I frequently draw from a client-centered approach, a family systems approach and engage in emotion-focused processing and cognitive or cognitive-behavioral techniques.
It has been shown time and again the relationship between client and counselor is the most important part of a therapy experience. It is always on my mind to ensure that our relationship remains entirely focused on you, but as a part of the collaborative duo that will become client and therapist I’m happy to share a bit about myself. Relationally, I have been described as down-to-earth, authentic and sincere and I enjoy a bit of humorous banter in the therapy space as the situation calls for it. With humility and curiosity I am eager to hear about your life experiences. Licensed in TN (license 3396) & Virginia (license 0701010748)

I believe in helping clients heal by establishing safe and secure attachments to themselves and others, utilizing current strengths as well as internal and external resources to create lasting change.

I would love to work with you! My specialty areas are coping with and healing from racial trauma, childhood and family of origin trauma, grief and loss, religious and spiritual issues, and phase of life/life transition concerns.
Do you ever feel like your choices are limited and like your movement towards growth is stunted? Therapy provides the opportunity to tap into the wisdom of how to live a more fulfilling life that is hidden within all of us, but at times feels out of reach. My work is to facilitate deep exploration of who you are, your needs, what propels you towards change, and what shapes the choices you make in your life. You can re-write the remaining parts of your life's story because you will have access to the author again: YOU.

We are created by the life we have had, family of origin, traumas and those that have come into our lives.
I work with couples, families and adolescents. What they all have in common is a feeling of why is this happening to me? What do I do now? Is everyone doing better than I am? Is everyone managing so much easier than we are? Why is my marriage so difficult? Is parenting this hard for everyone? I know that life can be complicated, and it does not come with a manual. My goal is to work with clients to face and navigate their life so that they can gain perspective and grow. My love is working with clients so they can move through this world in such a way that they can be strong mentally and in healthy families and relationships.

My experience includes hundreds of cases concerning trauma, mood and personality disorders, life-transitions, and family conflict.
My hope is to create a relationship between the therapist and the individual that fosters positive and lasting change. To that end, I work patiently to ensure a sense of trust and safety. In addition, I feel I work well with individuals who go to therapy to be challenged, to be "unstuck." In these cases, I can be supportive while also being firm and direct. My approach is sensitive to the individual's life circumstance, their personality, and their comfort level with the therapeutic process.

When we're able to tell the truth that life is hard and ask for help, we begin to taste freedom from the bondage of life’s pains. Thank you to all my past, present, and future clients. The hard work of telling the truth and asking for help can be so very hard and you are all some of the most courageous people I know.

Do you feel like you're in constant conflict with your spouse, a friend, or family member? Is it hard to express what you want in relationships, and you feel like you keep getting stuck? Relationships, whether with partners, children, family members, or friends, are often the source of our greatest joys and most painful heartaches. You want to enjoy your time with your favorite people. The first step is to understand and cope with your own needs and emotions so that you can learn to clearly express them to your loved ones and feel understood.

I believe the therapeutic relationship is an organic experience that cannot be created elsewhere. My experience has shown me that each of us walks our own path and that no two are the same. Having support while walking your path can be just the thing to make the difference. I strive to provide safety so that you can talk about your life, your family , your pain, and sit in the tension to ultimately begin living more authentically. I work from a holistic approach; given that, we will develop the best course of treatment for your needs, together.

Our time in counseling may also include an exploration of your family -of-origin, goals, present habits and emotional struggles.
Life presents us with many unexpected challenges that can leave us feeling hurt, lonely, anxious and stressed. Maybe you are struggling with insecurity, uncertainty or a lack of direction. In times of distress, it can be difficult to share with anyone, let alone someone you’ve never met. Building a relationship is the most important step in the counseling process and hinges on empathy, respect and safety within the therapy office. Healing happens when we feel fully accepted while being vulnerable and authentic. This can only be achieved through a strong therapeutic alliance. In this space, you will be welcomed, heard and supported.

You may not be sure about the idea of horses or yoga, or family therapy .
The treatment of complex histories of trauma, eating disorders, and attachment disruptions must include interventions that rewire the brain from the bottom up, somatic movement to reintegrate the body with the brain, and a felt sense of safety, in the context of relationship. This provides lasting change for improved regulation, mood, energy, the ability to be present and attune to others. Too many therapies focus on decision making, problem solving, or changing your thoughts. This is not how we are wired to work. It leads to disappointment. My evidenced based interventions promise to be different.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
