Working in mental health is my true passion, but I have gotten to experience many facets of healthcare throughout my career. I am a Master of Science in Psychology graduate with an in-depth knowledge of administrative practices and management. I am excited to be a part of such an extraordinary team, and connecting with our community here in Franklin is one of the best parts of my job!
I approach counseling from a collaborative perspective, in which you, the client, and I work together to identify ways to address your concerns and meet your therapeutic goals. In session, I take an interpersonal stance where we explore the ways that your relationships with others can impact the concerns that brought you to therapy as well as how these concerns might impact your current relationships. I firmly believe that each client has the ability to accomplish their goals when they can engage authentically in a nonjudgmental therapeutic space.
I want to support you on your journey!
“You are a light, You are the light! Never let anyone – any person or any force – dampen, dim, or diminish your light. Study the path of others to make your way easier and more abundant. Lean toward the whispers of your own heart, discover the universal truth, and follow its dictates.” – John Lewis

“Progress, not perfection.” The healing journey begins with any step taken to improve yourself, and every step deserves to be celebrated.

Challenges and struggles in life are a human experience. Sometimes navigating these events is confusing and overwhelming. It is okay to not have all the answers. Asking for help and guidance is a form of self-care that you deserve. Counseling offers a safe place for you to explore your thoughts and feelings, your past and hopes for the future. Along the way, finding insight, accessing your skills and inner strength will give you the hope and motivation to continue on your journey. “Growth is never by mere chance. It is the result of forces working together.” James Cash Penney. I have over 20 years of counseling experience and I enjoy working with those age 16 and up.
As a Physician Assistant it is my duty to explore all aspects of your health. In order to treat every patient holistically, I use the 4-part biopsychosocial-spiritual model. This acknowledges that each and every individual has 4 key factors surrounding your mental wellbeing these being: biological, psychological, social and spiritual. Using evidence-based practice I will dive into each of these aspects in order to fully understand what brought you to me. I want to be your teammate on this journey of healing and be the support you need to be able to celebrate and enjoy life to the fullest extent.
I like working with adults, specifically women, who experience anxiety, stress, and depression. Worry happens in your mind, stress happens in your body, and anxiety happens in your mind and your body. In small doses, worry, stress and anxiety can be positive forces in our lives. But research shows that most of us are too worried, too stressed and too anxious. I want to help my clients feel empowered to take control of
their lives and move towards the life they want. I believe in the importance of the therapeutic relationship for healing and growth, and I strive to create a safe, accepting space for each of my clients.
