I have several years of experience counseling children and young adults from a variety of backgrounds, and have focused my work with clients in the LGBTQ + community, in both exploring their identity and handling life stressors unrelated to their identity.
I help guide children and young adults towards a mentally and emotionally healthy life, where they have the tools to pursue their best selves. Life often throws the unexpected at us, and we need someone to help us through life stressors, family conflicts, exploring our identity, and finding goals and direction in life.

I help families in crisis, the LGBTQ + community, and write letters for gender-affirming care.
Whether you are facing small problems, or very big ones; whether you are generally confident, or feel that no one cares or could understand your pain, I’m here. And I’ve been there. I worked for years to overcome challenging life issues and situations before studying to become a Professional Clinical Mental Health Counselor, so that I would be qualified to help others do the same. I believe strongly that a better life is out there if you can be courageous enough to try new behaviors, challenge old ways of thinking, and sometimes tolerate uncomfortable emotions. Therapy is not always easy, but it is rewarding, and you're not alone.

I have over 13 years of experience working with a variety of issues. I approach therapy in different ways with each individual based on their needs but often pull from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental space in which I provide support, encouragement, and guidance. I have experience with and enjoy working with the LGBTQ + community including completing assessments and writing letters for gender affirming surgeries. I look forward to working with you and would be honored to be part of your journey.

As a Black, Queer , and Non-binary therapist, I know how difficult it can be to find places that feel secure and affirming.
Finding a therapist who validates and reflects core aspects of your identity can be difficult. My goal as a therapist is to create a safe space for you to feel accepted, respected, and understood. I appreciate working with a diverse group of clients, especially individuals from marginalized and underserved communities (BIPOC, Trans , Queer , & GNC). My practice is sex positive and ENM-affirming. My approach is intersectional, collaborative, and based in a social justice framework.

I have experience with developmental difficulties in children and adolescents such as anxiety, depression, LGBTQIA issues, adjustment difficulties as well as relational hardships.
Struggling to cope with various life circumstances and stressors can be hard and may create a feeling of being “stuck” unable to move past the circumstance or stressor. Asking for help can be very intimidating. I am a down to earth, sensible and relatable counselor who is nonjudgmental and genuine to ensure your comfort and trust when sharing your deepest feelings. I nurture everyone’s uniqueness and focus on their personal strengths to transition through the life circumstance/stressor in order to lead a fulfilling and meaningful life.

Sometimes we come to a time in our life when we can use some guidance. I love working with people to help them along their way. We can explore what works for you and what doesn't. Together we can figure out where you want to go from here and how to get there. I've helped many adults and youth with personal growth as they navigated through life stressors and transitions.

I'm here to help you connect with the very best version of yourself by realigning with your most deeply held core values and goals. In today's pressurized world, those innate preferences that make us who we really are can get buried beneath the roles and obligations placed on us by others. We actually forget who we really are. Or in some cases, what makes sense in one phase of our lives no longer fits as we move forward. It is my intention to help you reconnect with the things you truly value and learn to invest in those things towards a life that is more authentic, healthy, and well-resourced.

It’s great to see you! It is a brave thing to make the decision to reach out for help. I am very excited to walk with you on your journey towards finding peace. Many times we feel alone with our issues and that others don’t understand how we feel. It isn’t until we find ourselves in a supportive environment that we recognize how connected we can be with those around us. My values include being my authentic self, understanding your unique experience, and being a solid object of support.

If you are like many of my clients, you are a college student that works hard. But like them, you wonder what is wrong with you. You are worried all the time. You have had some panic attacks. You can't stop beating yourself up. You are overwhelmed and stressed out. You want good grades and good relationships. But you feel like you are constantly disappointing everyone. You want to stop feeling overwhelmed and stop saying to yourself "I need to get my act together". My clients experience anxiety and they contact me because they want to stop feeling like a failure and worrying all the time.

What type of Murfreesboro 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 Murfreesboro?
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.
