About Me

*****Not currently accepting new clients at this time*** I graduated from Trevecca Nazarene University with a Bachelor of Arts in Management and Human Relations and went on to earn my Master’s degree in Professional Counseling from Argosy University. I completed my internship with Bradford Health Services conducting group therapy in an intensive outpatient setting for adults and adolescents with substance addiction. As a level 2 trained EMDR practitioner, I have an effective means of treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Licensure and Professional Affiliations: I am fully licensed by the state of Tennessee as a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Mental Health Service Provider designation license# 2711. I'm an active member of Tennessee Licensed Professional Counselors Association.

Experience: I have over 14 years experience helping people find wholeness and emotional stability. I began life coaching young women and teenagers through YWCA. Later went on to work with young men ages 18-24 who were striving to reenter society after being incarcerated. My experience later led to helping men, women and families, within a local community agency, manage stressors related to poverty. Since 2008 I've worked alongside individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, grief, and trauma issues. As a private practitioner I am able to bring together my diverse experience and skills to serve a broad spectrum of clients. My areas of expertise are depression, anxiety, trauma, interpersonal,and spiritual issues.

My therapeutic approach: I consider myself to be an interactive and solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing. I believe in a whole person approach to healing focusing on mind, body, and spirit, therefore I use a variety of treatment modalities including mindfulness, EMDR, CBT, behavioral activation, positive psychology, and EFT (tapping). My goal is to help you feel empowered and filled with purpose.

Personal Life: I am blessed to have a wonderful family whom I enjoy spending time with. I love playing with my grandchildren, my mother's home cooked meals, her wisdom and guidance. I enjoy laughing with my children, sister and brother. I strive to demonstrate my Christian faith and values by keeping a humble and grateful heart.

It is my hope that you will pursue the peaceful and purpose filled life that is your God given right. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you better!
