I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Mental Health Service Provider specializing in individual, couples and family therapy. I have an individual private practice at the Brentwood United Methodist Church Counseling Center in Brentwood, Tennessee.
As a professional counselor, I work with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are depression and anxiety, couples therapy, premarital counseling, grief, divorce recovery, life transitions, work and career issues, stress management, EMDR and trauma recovery.
My training is in a variety of clinical models including cognitive behavioral therapy, psychoanalytical theory and several family therapy models. I also have certification in EMDR (rapid trauma treatment) and Prepare Enrich Premarital Counseling, focusing on helping couples to build on their strengths, improve communication and resolve conflicts peacefully. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I try to work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
