Accepting Clients

I am a Nashville-based therapist dedicated to creating a safe, collaborative, and creative space for my clients to heal and grow!

Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate in Nashville, TN
Supervised by Dr. Daniel Goldstein, PhD, Licensed Psychologist

About My Clients

I am passionate about my work with teenagers, young adults, and older adults who are experiencing a wide range of difficulties. Most frequently, I work with clients struggling with anxiety and/or depression, as well as individuals yearning for change, managing life transitions, dealing with relationship challenges, or looking for coping skills to better handle stress. I also have experience working with clients processing trauma and moving towards safety and stabilization.

My Background and Approach

I believe that every human has the capacity for growth and healing through getting to know oneself more intimately. My guiding perspective stems from the idea that humans find adaptive patterns from early childhood to protect themselves from pain, discomfort, and loneliness. In the therapeutic space, we can unlearn some of these patterns together that no longer feel useful. My approach to therapy is eclectic, integrating multiple approaches to best tailor the needs of each unique individual client. I focus on applying humanistic, person-centered, cognitive-behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and mindfulness approaches. I view clients and their treatment from a holistic lens, integrating aspects of mental, physical, and emotional health to highlight the dynamic experience of wellness. My goal is to create a collaborative space to address each client's needs, building a toolbox to navigate life's stressors, set boundaries, and move on a path toward healing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

With all of my clients, I provide an accepting and affirming therapeutic space. I offer empathy, authenticity, and unconditional positive regard with evidence-based modalities to create an impactful and empowering therapeutic experience.
