About My Clients

You are worthy, unique, and enough! You have the capacity to heal and thrive! An extraordinary and fulfilling life is possible for all of us! Our struggles and “stuckness” are complicated and layered. If you feel stuck and are yearning to be “unstuck,” we can work together. Being stuck can present as lack of meaning, feeling disconnected from yourself, having unfulfilling or unsatisfying relationships, challenges with transitions, deep dilemmas, mood troubles, and constant worry among others.

My Background and Approach

I completed my master’s and doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology (Doctor of Psychology; PsyD) at Spalding University in Kentucky. For my doctoral program, I completed a year-long internship at an inpatient unit with Yale University. Subsequently, I completed my post-doctoral training at a college counseling center with Emory University. I am a Licensed Psychologist in the state of Tennessee (Tn # 3417). Over the last ten years, my clinical experiences have been in inpatient, forensic, outpatient community mental health and college counseling settings. I use an integrative approach with psychodynamic, interpersonal, cognitive behavioral and process oriented elements along with the critical impact of culture and diversity to understand your complex and unique world. In this approach, many of our difficulties can be seen as unhealthy ways of understanding ourselves and others. I provide both face-to-face and telepsychology/telehealth (online) appointments.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I will strive to be present, genuine, empathetic and compassionate. I will also gently challenge you and stay with you in the scary and unknown. I will encourage us to cultivate curiosity every step of the way. Together, we will CONTEMPLATE+DISCOVER. Make the brave choice and take a step towards thriving. I look forward to hearing from you.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
