My passion is to work with children & adolescents who struggle with behavioral issues, family conflict, life changes, self-esteem, and anxiety. My ultimate goal is to help children /adolescents understand that it is okay not to be okay and to know that it is okay to seek help! As Robert Kiyosaki once said, “One of the biggest defects in life is in the inability to ask for help." Therefore, it is my belief that in order for a healthier future to occur, we must start by supporting the mental health of children and adolescents, as they are the future generations to come.

It’s kinda hard to be a child today. I think most would also say it’s kinda hard to be a parent today as well. Does it often feel like that the frustration levels at your home sometime push everyone in your family to exaggeration? Kids refusing to go to bed, teens unable to speak, chores or school work not completed, or worse—feelings of hopelessness with your child not able to enjoy life as usual? Has it become more difficult for your child to manage through another day due to grief, anxiety, or events? It can be hard working through these feelings, and I would like to work with you to help navigate through whatever is happening.

Does your child struggle with tantrums and emotional outbursts? Do you receive a lot of phone calls from school or daycare? Is it hard for your child to calm down once they become angry or distressed? It’s difficult to see your child struggling to make friends, having difficulty following rules and directions, and being critical of themselves. This could result in your child refusing to go to school in the morning, screaming when you say no, and crying often. It’s also hard not knowing what parenting strategy works best for what your child is going through.

Is your child struggling after hardship or trauma? Do they have big emotions that are difficult to manage or do they withdraw when you try to care for them? Parenting kids with sensitive nervous systems can be a daunting challenge. Caregivers often feel frustrated because all of the parenting strategies they’ve tried don’t seem to work. Over time, families can struggle to find connection and joy in the midst of their challenges. The good news is that there is hope when we can attune to your child 's individual needs!

I believe in the importance of acknowledging how the brain and body work together to form the person we are. Our experiences throughout our life shape who we are and how we move in the world. I am deeply interested in how we carry our stories in our bodies. In my practice, I integrate knowledge about the way the body, brain, and emotions work together to form our sense of self. I draw from a strengths-based perspective as I help clients achieve their goals in therapy. I enjoy working with children , teens, and adults. I especially enjoy supporting parents in the difficult work of parenting children and teens.

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.
