About Me

I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University in 2017 with my Masters in Professional Counseling. I have over 2,000 hours of experience working with individuals, couples, and families ranging in age from 5 to 65. 

 

My ideal client is someone who is struggling with issues related to anxiety and/or depression and is seeking to improve their mental health. I enjoy working with LGBTQ individuals and even have  experience working with LGBTQ couples. Of course, clients across the gender identity and sexuality spectrums are welcome, including those who are cisgender and heterosexual. I especially enjoy working with adolescents and young adults. I enjoy helping clients through life transitions such as starting college and exploring career options. Additionally, I am working toward my certification as a sex therapist and have a special interest in helping individuals and couples who are experiencing sexual dysfunction. 

 

My therapy style is eclectic, but I do rely heavily on cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) methods. I have recently had an increased interest in incorporating dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and mindfulness skills. Most importantly, my style of therapy is informed by my own personal experiences with mental health throughout my life, so I have a genuine understanding of how difficult it can be to seek therapy.

I am a Native Nashvillian and grew up in the Donelson-Hermitage area. I began working in Hendersonville due to my husband's job. I enjoy lifting weights, watching Netflix/TV, and spending time with my chihuahua-mix rescue dog, Ginger Lee.
