I received my Masters in Marriage and Family therapy from Trevecca Nazarene University right here in Nashville, Tennessee. I have been in private practice for a little over 4 years.
Although I grew up in Alabama, I have been in Nashville for almost 23 years. I moved here to pursue a career in music and music is still a big part of my life! This experience has given me a unique perspective in working with creative minds. I also have a heart for working with individuals and couples who have a child/children with special needs. This is a complex struggle in which I have both personal and professional experience.
So, why therapy?
I believe that therapy is a unique opportunity to have a safe and empathic place to share one’s story. It is a privilege for me to journey alongside others as they discover who they are in the midst of that story. Anyone can benefit from therapy as we all need an unbiased observer to help us navigate through life's difficulties. I approach therapy in an eclectic manner, and have experience in a variety of therapeutic models. I work with both individuals and couples interested in seeking treatment for trauma, past and present abuse, depression, anxiety, relational distress, conflict resolution, divorce care, and personal growth. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which is a tool using bilateral stimulation for victims of trauma. I have also been trained extensively with the Enneagram- a personality test designed to encourage personal awareness and growth.
