Education and Credentials
  • Licensed Professional Counselor with Mental Health Provider designation, temporary - LPC-MHSP (temp) #6814
  • MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Trevecca Nazarene University
  • BS in Psychology from The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
  • I am passionate about sitting with clients through life’s challenges and exploring difficult experiences while working through an integrative mind-body approach with a trauma-sensitive lens.
  • I enjoy utilizing Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Somatic Experiencing (SE when working with clients. I believe therapy is not “one-size-fits-all” and prefer to take an integrative approach that allows for flexibility to meet an individual’s needs and goals.
  • Before doing therapy full-time, I worked at a local neurofeedback clinic. I have found my background in neurofeedback to be beneficial in deepening my understanding of nervous system dysregulation and providing a neurophysiological understanding of the client’s presenting concerns.
  • I am a Nashville native who enjoys exploring local bookstores, attending Nashville Predators games, and walking at the park with my three pups, Josie, Gatsby, & Maximus.
