Sometimes life can be a struggle. Some parts of ourselves and our pasts can be uncomfortable and difficult to share with someone else. Therapy is a safe place where those memories and parts of our self that bring shame and hurt can be met with compassion, empathy, and support. As a therapist, I am here to help guide you through life’s troubles and help you to create a space where you can be heard. My goal is to help people reconnect, discover their strength, and identify their authentic self. I seek to help people improve their relationships with themselves and those they love most in their lives.
Walking with clients on their therapeutic journey is an incredible privilege. I love to work with people and see them become the person that they want to be. Being a witness to the transformation of a client-whether it would be working with an individual who releases an old belief about themselves that isn’t true, or a couple who sees each other with new eyes and fuller hearts, or a parent and teen who find common ground where there once was only conflict-is why I enjoy my profession. These moments are what drives me to show up fully for my clients every day and continue to strive for the highest quality of care possible.
I have a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lipscomb University. After graduating, I worked in a clinical and research capacity at Vanderbilt University with experts in the field of stress and coping, depression, and parenting. I have experience working with individuals, couples, and adolescents and their parents. I approach therapy from an attachment lens and have training in evidence-based approaches including Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), the Gottman method, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused CBT, and brainspotting, among others.
