When you are in the midst of a crisis or uncertainty, it is easy to lose your way. Perhaps the coping skills you used in the past no longer work. You may be trying to figure out what comes next.
While there is no “one-size fits all” solution to what you are going through, counseling can create a space to both examine where you are now and define where it is you want to go. As you walk through this difficult place, I will walk along beside you, help you discover your own strengths, ask hard questions, and support you in forging a solution that works for you.
I want to offer you hope. Whether you are facing a health crisis, a marriage crisis, a job crisis, grieving a loss, feeling hopeless and helpless, or just overwhelmed in general, I want you to know that it will not always feel this way. There is hope. Each day you are given you can choose to do the same thing you did yesterday, or you can choose to do something different.
You do not exist in a vacuum-- your family, job, community, and natural surroundings can have a significant impact on your everyday life. As part of the journey to wholeness, you must intentionally foster the elements that support you in order to build strength to tackle the areas that challenge you.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with fifteen years experience working with individuals and families in a variety of settings. I obtained my Master of Science in Social Work degree from the University of Tennessee in 2006 and earned my undergraduate degree from Marietta College in 1998. I completed training through the MentorCoach Training Program in 2009.
I am honest, down-to-earth, and I endeavor to always create a safe environment for my clients to discuss sensitive topics. My ideal client appreciates my direct approach and honest assessment of the situation, embraces their own ability to affect change, and values faith and God’s hand in their lives.
From our first meeting, I will focus on your reasons and goals in seeking therapy, and help you identify practical and concrete steps towards a solution. You will find me to be practical, empathetic, and easy to talk to.
I live in Rutherford County with my husband and two children. I am active in my local church. In my free time, I enjoy reading, hiking, and camping. I am a firm believer in fresh air and sunshine as positive therapeutic tools and encourage my clients to discover the benefits of nature themselves.
