GRACE and HOPE are key words in my practice. We all need to give ourselves a little grace, give others grace, cling to hope, and pass it along.

Why.. because it's easy to share happiness, but sharing our pain is much more challenging. We feel guilty, shameful, torn between the expectations of the world and what we really want to be doing with our time. I am passionate about working collaboratively as life's challenges are encountered... and tackled! I strive to help you gain insight about your stressors, anxiety, path in life, while achieving a healthy, joyful, balanced life.

I believe in living life as community, providing support to one another, learning, growing, and sharing in life's challenges. When working with you as a client I believe it beneficial to not only recognize and change things in the here and now, but to gain insights that we can use going forward.

I see my work through a systemic lens. Our current challenges are influences by both our present and past, social, familial and work environments. These are impermeable systems that carry great influence in our lives. Recognizing these and learning to live fruitfully within our systems can change our satisfaction with life.

This is your time. Your investment. Your work. Are you ready?

More Info About My Practice

Feel free to give me a call! If I am unavailable to take your call, please leave a confidential message so that I can return your call within 24 hours. You can also contact me by email. Fees for counseling services are $90 per clinical hour (50 minutes). I offer a sliding scale on a case by case basis. I work from a holistic view point and do not offer diagnosis unless it is desired by a client, therefore I do not take insurance. HSA cards accepted for payment.

My Therapy Focus

I work with you to identify and overcome issues that can disrupt your work/life balance, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, feeling "stuck" and other difficulties. Helping you to achieve wellness and balance in your daily life is my passion. I work with individuals (age 14 and up) as well as couples and families in the Brentwood, TN area. I work with clients of all races, religions, cultures, beliefs and gender and sexual orientations.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

My personal opinion is that going to therapy simply make us more real, more human, and more honest with ourselves. It shows strength to go to therapy, a willingness to better ourselves, and a commitment to do our best by ourselves and those we love. Furthermore, who of us on earth isn't flawed, and is that a bad thing? The more effort you put into our work together the more you will get out? I only see strength in someone trying to better themselves, strengthen their relationship, vulnerability is honored with growth.
I attempt to counter this stigma by working from strengths perspective. We all have strengths, we all have weaknesses. I enjoy working with clients to help them identify strengths and grow strengths, and incorporate this all into daily life.
