About me:

At the age of 13, I knew that I wanted to become a therapist. In 2007 I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from UT Martin. I obtained my Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling in December of 2012. I began working as a therapist for a community mental health facility in January 2013. 

My specialty rests in working with children and adolescents.  I have 14 years experience in the mental health field.  I assist clients struggling with depression, anxiety, ADHD, ODD, suicidal ideations, self harm, social and communication skills, abuse and trauma.  I am trained in CBT, TF-CBT, DBT, Mindfulness and REBT.  I am working on becoming certified in EMDR this fall!

I started out in the mental health field as a case manager, and I worked as a case manager from 2007 until I became a therapist in 2013. My experience with clients ranges from age 5 to the elderly, however the bulk of my career has focused on children ages 5-18. I strive to be the person that I needed when I was younger for the kids that I work with. Of all the experiences I have had in my life, being a therapist has by far been the most rewarding.

About me:

Mental health is my passion and I will strive to create a safe and healing environment for you to flourish in. When you become my client, you are no longer alone in your pain... we are in it together. And together we will tackle the internal stressors and behavioral issues that have been keeping you from living your most peaceful and joyful life.

With nearly 600 internship hours under my belt and a highly skilled clinical supervisor supporting my caseload, you can feel confident that the most effective modalities and thorough treatment plans will be utilized as we team together to accomplish your goals. Anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, and whatever else might be getting in the way of you living life to the fullest can be overcome. You just need the right tools and support, which I would love the opportunity to provide you with.

About me:

I am a master's level intern and currently studying Marriage and Family Therapy at Trevecca Nazarene University. I am a member of the American Counseling Association as well as the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. After graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill, I came to Nashville to be close to extended family. I get my energy from working with people, so a counseling career just made sense!

I believe that people already have everything they need to lead a joyful and purposeful life. However, a lack of time, rest, and quality relationships can make these resources seem scarce. This is when a therapist’s objective perspective can be very helpful. I strive to offer genuine, kind, and mindful support to help you restore your life’s balance. I have a passion for working with individuals in all stages of life transition and I am looking forward to meeting all clients where they are.
