17 years of experience

Hello! I am a licensed professional counselor and see clients in Tennessee and North Carolina. With over 18 years of experience, I specialize in helping clients navigate trauma, anxiety, ADHD and sexual issues. My approach looks at the whole person and is compassionate and tailored to individual needs to foster healing and personal growth. It is my goal to empower my clients to live rich and fulfilling lives with the freedom to pursue their dreams.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In your first session with me, you can expect a warm and welcoming environment where we will briefly introduce ourselves. There will be some mindfulness exercises to create a calm/relaxing and safe environment for the work to be done. Then we will focus on what brought you to therapy and where you would like to see yourself ideally.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Having been a therapist for almost 2 decades and also teaching neuropsychology at the university level, my approach focuses on teaching how the brain and nervous system works; and empowering clients to use this knowledge to change symptoms into strengths.

My treatment methods


My counseling practice is centered around the belief that the mind and body are deeply interconnected. Somatic therapy focuses on this connection, using body-centered techniques like breathing, body-awareness and gesture exploration to help clients access and process their emotions, traumas, and psychological issues. This holistic approach acknowledges that psychological stress and trauma are often stored in the body, and by addressing these physical manifestations, clients can achieve deeper healing and self-awareness.


Early life experiences have a big impact on current relational patterns. By exploring attachment styles and their impact on current relationships, we work together to foster secure and healthy connections. My approach integrates mindfulness, empathy, and evidence-based techniques to create a safe, nurturing environment for personal growth and emotional healing.


Using guided relaxation and focused attention clients access their subconscious mind and achieve positive change. This approach is effective for managing anxiety, overcoming phobias, breaking bad habits, moving forward from trauma and enhancing personal growth. By creating a safe and supportive environment, I help clients harness the power of their inner mind to resolve issues and reach their goals.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Sessions also include practical skills and strategies to manage stress, anxiety, depression, and other challenges. My focus is on empowering clients to achieve lasting change and improve their overall well-being by fostering a more positive and constructive mindset.
