My Approach to Helping
SATURDAY hours available! I have been practicing psychotherapy in diverse settings for 13 years. I completed my residency at Vanderbilt University and have served as an expert consultant for NBC's Today Show. As a psychologist, I have the opportunity to help people understand and navigate very difficult situations. I help my patients develop insight into problems that prevent them from achieving their goals. By reading between the lines and exploring the complexity of physical and mental health we are able to finally resolve long-standing concerns. Through honest conversation and direct feedback, we are able to transcend many challenging aspects of life. As a psychologist, I try to provide my patients with an authentic, down to earth, experience which will provide you with practical insights and actionable objectives. I won’t just ask you “how you feel about that” and offer self-affirming and supportive comments. I will ask you tough questions, give you straightforward feedback, and hopefully leave you feeling like this was a different kind of therapy experience. This is often what I hear from my patients who are relieved and enthusiastic about my approach. I want you to feel like you have made the right decision and have invested your money in a process that is worth your hard work. I look forward to helping you find the answers you're looking for!
I approach therapy with a focus on understanding the "whole person," which involves a detailed assessment of physiological and psychological issues. I tailor my treatment approach to meet the needs of the individual or couple. We will examine: sleep, nutrition, activity level, family history, relationships, occupational stress, and coping skills.
I have extensive specialized training that I received during my internship, residency, and the years I spent at Vanderbilt. I encourage you to demand more from mental health providers and seek the tailored and specialized treatment you deserve. Please call or email regarding questions about treatment, payment, or other inquiries.
