About My Clients
No one's life came with an instruction manual! Sooner or later we all encounter emotional problems, or engage in addictive behaviors, & experience relational problems too. I have specific experience and training in helping people navigate these kinds of issues. My clients typically experience progressive freedom and develop effective ways of coping with these issues. See the checklist below to learn about the specific struggles I can be of service to help with.
My Background and Approach
My method of working with people helps them understand the underlying issues from long ago that continue to drive their behavior, adverse emotional experiences, and relational problems. Then we work on building the relational & behavioral skills that are necessary to live effectively in the present and as freely as possible. You can schedule an appointment with me for an online or office appointment. I am located centrally in Knoxville. Please click on my website which is linked on this page and then click on the client portal to initiate the scheduling process or email me (also linked) if you have any questions! I return all emails as expeditiously as possible.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
We live in a broken world. Sadly, it's a world where it can be difficult to establish genuine connections to people who have the time to listen or the understanding it takes to help people cope effectively with their problems. This state of isolation may be real in your life but by enlisting the help of a caring and competent psychotherapist you can establish a compassionate connection that will provide an outlet for your concerns. This relationship will not only help you gain leaps and bounds of professional insight but also may serve as a blueprint for establishing the authentic connections and relationships you desire for the future. In essence, I believe, therapy works by removing the obstacles to growth. It is a pathway and shortcut toward personal growth.
