About My Clients

Whether it’s through individual therapy or working with couples, I’m here to support your journey towards a healthier and balanced life. I work with adults and couples, guiding them through challenges like complex family dynamics, boundary setting, anxiety/depression, religious trauma, and ADHD. My foundational belief is that we're all doing the best we can with what we have. As a partner in your journey, I bring an array of tools and skills, hoping to make your path a little easier to navigate.

My Background and Approach

In my practice, I blend principles from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), adapting them to each client's needs. With a Bachelor’s in English from MTSU and a Master’s in Social Work from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, and over two years of experience, I prioritize the therapist-client relationship, seeing it as a vital partnership where clients are the experts of their own journey. I create a safe, comfortable atmosphere where clients can explore challenges and goals freely, tailoring sessions to build progress incrementally. My aim is to offer personalized support and tools, recognizing that we are all doing our best with what we have. Together, we navigate their journey in a way that feels authentic and empowering, fostering a partnership grounded in mutual respect and understanding.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My journey into therapy was influenced by my personal struggles with anxiety, driving my empathetic approach to helping others navigate life's challenges. I prioritize understanding and compassion, drawing from my own experiences to connect with clients on a human level. I believe in the importance of developing meaningful relationships and treating each person with kindness and compassion. Recognizing the difficulty of being human, I strive to support clients by remembering my own struggles and fostering empathy for their experiences. Drawing from my experiences, I liken clients to plants, needing nurturing environments to thrive. Through compassion and understanding, I guide clients towards growth and resilience.
