Licensed Professional Counselor

We all experience ups and downs in life and I strongly believe that seeking help during the difficult times is a sign of great strength, not weakness, as it is a first step toward change. As a therapist, I view counseling as a collaborative process in which the client’s input and insight is just as valuable as mine. I strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which clients can be heard, supported, and empowered to transform their lives through exploration of thoughts and beliefs, behavioral patterns, and experiences that tend to hold them back. Through active participation in psychotherapy, clients can build on their inner strengths and develop the skills necessary to achieve the change and growth desired.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from North Carolina State University and my Master of Science degree in Counseling with a Concentration in Marriage and Family Studies from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

[/tab][tab]My therapeutic approach is integrative and evidence-based, providing support, insight, education, and skills training to help clients effectively address their personal challenges and enhance their overall well-being. I utilize a strengths-based approach, commonly incorporating cognitive behavioral and mindfulness techniques, solution focused therapy, interpersonal therapy, and family systems theory. Given the diverse client population served, I personalize my counseling approach to meet the individual or family’s particular needs, situation, and preferences.[/tab][tab]Over my twelve-year counseling career, I have assisted children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families with various concerns in a number of settings, including a community mental health center, a state governmental agency, community agencies and non-profits, and small group practices. I have provided psychotherapy to survivors of abuse, adults dealing with severe and persistent mental illness, children experiencing serious emotional and behavioral issues, families transitioning following a separation or divorce, and couples experiencing relationship difficulties. I have facilitated numerous therapeutic groups dealing with self-esteem, anger management, chronic pain, social skills, and parenting skills. I have extensive experience treating anxiety and depression and addressing concerns related to self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, behavioral concerns and parenting skills, and trauma such as sexual abuse and abuse within relationships. My professional experience also involves providing vocational assessment and counseling to individuals with mental health and/or substance abuse diagnoses. Finally, I have a personal interest in supporting individuals and couples who are dealing with fertility issues and/or the adoption process as well as individuals attempting to recover from traumatic events.[/tab][tab]
