I use a combination of somatic experiencing methods, attachment-based EMDR, Internal Family Systems, integrative work, and mindfulness-based interventions to help you heal and integrate major life experiences, trauma, PTSD, anxiety, addiction, disconnection, loneliness, and relationship issues.
I most often hear that what is wanted from therapy is hope and relief. Relief from anxiety and sadness, hope for your relationship. I believe you can achieve self-esteem, hope, and healing. I've seen it happen many times. Trusting this process is the first step. You don't have to do this alone. I can stand with you and guide you towards a safe and secure self within life's ups and downs. You can learn how to regain a sense of self, heal from the past, and create a life worth living.

Therapy is not about becoming a "better person". The process isn't something that you "work harder" at or "do more" of. You are already a person of inherent beauty, depth, and value. Together, let's courageously step deeper into the unique person that you were created to be.

I have pursued extensive training in trauma-informed and attachment-based modalities.
I believe in the innate capacity and sacred art of healing through connection- connection with others and connection within ourselves. I am passionate about providing a space that feels safe and soothing where you can feel seen and heard without judgment or feeling the need to say or do “the right thing.” We all develop coping strategies over time that help us get through life's various challenges. Sometimes these strategies stop helping, and maybe now they get in the way of living the kind of life we want. I hope to be a guide for gentle exploration of all parts of the self and reconnection to who you are and who you want to be.

It’s taken me a long time to write this because I desperately wanted my bio to communicate my heart for counseling, people, and the work that I do, but I also feel that words fall short when you’re trying to communicate something so intimate. First of all, you are brave for taking a step toward deeper healing, and I am honored that you might consider me as a support alongside you in your journey. Whether this is your first time seeking counseling or your 10th time, I hope to encourage and help empower you in your fight to become who you want to be. Whatever next step you decide to take, I hope the best for you.

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 practice from an attachment-based psychodynamic perspective while also using interventions inspired by cognitive behavioral therapy and mind-body therapies.
As a therapist, I approach our work together with warmth and curiosity and seek to nurture a holding space that feels safe to address whatever unique concerns you bring. In sessions, I am engaged and accessible. I start with your present concerns and also facilitate interest in your deeper self. I believe each of us has the courage and resilience to successfully navigate the change that we seek, and I consider it a privilege to walk alongside you in that endeavor.   I enjoy working with adults dealing with life transitions, grief and loss, family of origin concerns, relationship issues, trauma, and anxiety among other things.

I am trained in EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, attachment-based interventions, and play therapy.
All of us can benefit from having someone walk with us through life's challenges. Reaching out takes courage. I'm passionate about building relationships with clients of all ages, rooted in developing trust and safety, to create the space and awareness to be who you were created to be. I believe we are designed to heal. Sometimes the strategies we developed to navigate the world initially helped us to survive, but they are no longer serving us, and are actually keeping us from living life fully. I journey alongside my clients as they reconnect with their true selves, rediscover hope, and step into a richer experience of life.

My therapeutic approach is attachment-based , trauma-informed and person-centered.
Do you struggle with anxiety, depression, or feelings of low self-worth? Do you react in ways that cause you to feel embarrassed or ashamed, but did not feel like you were in control? Do you avoid people or situations because you become too overwhelmed or anxious? Do you often put others' needs before your own and end up feeling resentful? If any or all of the above sound familiar, you are not alone.

I include elements of IFS or "parts work," EMDR, and attachment-based therapy in my work.
Hello and welcome! I am so glad you’re here. I recognize that finding a new therapist takes courage. My primarily goal is to create a calm, safe, non-judgmental space where every part of you feels welcomed. I empower individuals by being curious about their experiences, understanding their goals, and celebrating all the victories - big or small. As a trauma therapist, I know how easy it is to feel disconnected, fragmented, or isolated. Therapy is an incredible tool for restoring your sense of self and healing the parts of you that experience pain.

In my personal and professional life, I have found one thing to be true: Life can be hard. I have a passion for supporting others in resolving pain and reclaiming fullness in life. While pain is an inevitable part of the human experience, suffering is optional. I am dedicated to helping individuals, couples, and families heal from relational and other traumas, problematic sexual behaviors, addictions, and intimacy disorders. I see men and women whose lives have spiraled out of control become desperate for help. I see brokenhearted adults and children as they learn to cope with an unstable world. My heart is to heal the broken hearted and give hope where hope was once lost.

I specialize in experiential, attachment-based therapy, and I am trained in EMDR.
After a brief stint as a touring musician and 20 years in the equipment finance industry, I finally found my perfect work-fit: helping families find healing from previous hurts, cope and move through current life difficulties, and prepare for a healthy future. I work with children and young adults who are dealing with trauma, ADHD, anxiety, depression, and grief/loss. As a parent, myself, I understand that when our children struggle, we struggle as well. So, I provide support to parents who are navigating difficult challenges with their children.

If you're having a hard time right now, you are not alone! Cancellations, disrupted routines, isolation, financial uncertainty, political and racial tensions are testing each of our abilities to cope. The new stresses we face can illuminate weak spots in our relationships, our parenting, our self care routines, and/ or our mental health. Whether you feel overwhelmed by current events or greater clarity about what needs attention in your life, counseling can help you cope and gain the tools you need to live with more peace, confidence, more positive relationships, and resilience even through tough times.

I am comfortable utilizing an integrated approach that synthesizes my Christian values with research based practices if desired.

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.

Specifically I am an attachment-based , neurobiologically-informed therapist, which is a wordy way of saying that I focus on the whole-person--mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
So you want something to change? What's standing in your way? Maybe you have experienced trauma or loss, or you find yourself in relationships that cost you more than you get in return. Maybe your partner, family, or child is struggling and you are looking for a way to help without getting lost yourself? Therapy can help you discover new truths about your situation, bringing you clarity and direction. With over 10 years in the mental health community, I have seen people find new hope and healing through the introspective and transforming work of therapy, all in pursuit of a life that is deeply satisfying.

What type of Nashville 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 Nashville?
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.
