Accepting Clients

Living your life, with all of its glory and tragedy, sometimes begs for help along the way, asking for guidance, and that's why I'm here.

Licensed Professional Counselor in Johnson City, TN


About My Clients

I work primarily with adults tackling issues such as life transitions, self-discovery, codependency, stress management, depression, anxiety, grief and various losses. I can assist you with self-esteem, setting healthy boundaries, and learning new perspectives and strategies. In addition to providing counseling in a traditional setting, I also offer walk and talk therapy and guided forest therapy walks in the surrounding areas in parks and other nature settings to help encounter wholeness!

My Background and Approach

I believe that we are all the walking wounded, but we can all benefit from a caring presence, a listening ear, and an objective voice for support, and that is what I have done for almost 30 years and is still my life's service. I work collaboratively with my clients, and if we discover I am not the best fit for you, I will help you find someone who is. In addition to being a Licensed Professional Counselor, I am a Mindfulness-Based Certified Ecotherapy Facilitator and a Certified Forest Therapy Guide by the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy (ANFT). I am currently certified in CPR and Wilderness First Aid. Having spent most of my life in the Appalachian Mountains, I love to help my fellow Humans encounter wholeness and well-being by way of embodiment and nature connection practices in the More Than Human World. Nature brings us a sense of relief form all the everyday stresses of life, connect us, and may fill our hearts with love for ourselves and the world around us.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that taking the first step with anything is the hardest part, especially during times when we feel overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, grief-stricken, or feel that we simply can't go on. I believe that we are far more capable than we realize, that we hold the key, and I will strive to help you remember that. I strongly believe that a healthy relationship with nature helps us not only individually, but collectively. I believe that time in the wild is needed now more than ever for our health and wellbeing and for that of our home planet. I practice non-judgment, acceptance, and offer a safe environment. I understand and acknowledge the vulnerability that is often present in my counseling space, and I wish to honor that. I'm far from perfect, but I try to continually work on myself in the areas of physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual realms of health, in order that I may be of the best help for you!
