About My Clients
Do you feel overwhelmed by stress, worry, or self-doubt? Being overwhelmed by a situation or an event can be a scary and anxious experience. As a counselor, it is my privilege to journey with you through the fears and uncertainty. Together, we can find ways to cope with the unpleasant emotions or unhelpful thoughts that can come with those experiences so you feel more at ease.
My Background and Approach
I received my master's degree in human development counseling in a program that emphasized development across one's lifespan. My training included a residential treatment facility for substance abuse and co-occurring disorders, as well as a year-long internship at a mindfulness-based, holistic clinic at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Since then, I have worked in two non-profits in Nashville providing support for the community. I aid clients in building the resources and tools for coping with unpleasant emotions and experiences.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that it is OK to not be OK, and that reaching out for help is a brave, important, and necessary step in beginning a journey towards well-being. I believe that each person is deserving of love and has worth.
