My Background:

  • My pronouns are she/her/hers.
  • I was born and raised in a small Texas town!
  • I attended a small college for my undergraduate and graduate degree.
  • After graduating from college, I worked in an orphanage for a year.
  • While working there, I watched children who had endured the worst kinds of trauma, some who could not speak, go through therapy and transform into children. I knew therapy could make a difference in people’s lives and desperately wanted to be a part of that world.
  • My current hometown is Nashville, TN.

My Approach:

  • My clients have described me as “authentic and genuine.
  • My specialties include: Anxiety, depression, trauma, and ADHD.
  • I am passionate about providing my clients with compassionate kindness and empathy. 
  • I have had the fortunate experience of witnessing the drastic change that clients have experienced through therapy.
  • I love offering insight validation and, at times, challenging clients to experience something different than the pain they experienced when they first started therapy.
  • I am honored to hear about your experiences and to help you process life events in a safe environment.
  •  I aim to deepen your understanding of yourself by diving into your past experiences and how they affect you today.

Fun Facts:

  • I am one of 5 children.
  • My early years were spent in the “deer capitol of Texas” (it has more deer than people).
  • I love to read.
  • I am a fan of doing anything outside. I garden every year, hike, run, ski, fish, swim, and even take moments between sessions to breathe fresh air.
