My Approach to Helping
I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Tennessee with expertise in helping young adults, adolescents and their families. I am direct and can give specific feedback while also being supportive and validating. My job is to assist in whatever way is needed and is most therapeutic. You can feel free to bring up anything without fear of judgment--there's enough of that as it is. Let me show you how I might help you make some real changes and figure out how to accept the ones you can't.
More Info About My Practice
I have a significant amount of experience working with adolescents and young adults who struggle to get through the day-to-day without something to "take the edge off." My experience in residential and outpatient treatment has allowed me to see the spectrum of issues and I recognize the unique struggles for both the individuals experiencing them AND their families. Impulsive and addictive behavior is usually a symptom and those who have substance use disorders may be hiding their pain...even from themselves.
As a former collegiate dual sport athlete I know first-hand the pressure that comes with all the expectations. I can help those athletes who are overwhelmed, struggling with confidence, andor mentally stuck among other things. Regardless what competitive level you are performing; it happens to the best of us and I can help you breakthrough to the other side
