Fees - $90 for a 50-minute session. Typically, during our first meeting I try to provide a 90-minute session to address paperwork and allow time for discussion before our next session.

"Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren't always comfortable, but they're never weakness." Brené Brown
For each of us, life can be joyful, peaceful, fulfilling, and purposeful. However, it can also be painful, confusing, damaging, and discouraging. I view the counseling process as a journey which allows clients to heal, grow, recover, increase their self-awareness, and regain hope. It would be a privilege to work with you if you are in need, as I am continuously motivated by this powerful thought: life, we’re all in this together. Let’s set up some time to talk and see if I’d be a good fit as your counselor.
My approach to counseling is integrative, drawing from various therapeutic styles to help each client reach their goals. I also rely on unique perspectives and experiences I have gained during the past 10-years of working as a School Psychologist. My clinical interests include attachment issues, individuals/family members coping with physical disabilities, depression, anxiety, grief, addiction, trauma, life-transitions, behavioral/social challenges, spirituality, and personal growth. I work with children, adolescents, and adults.
Educationally, my background includes Masters and Specialist level degrees in School Psychology from Appalachian State University, as well graduate level coursework in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lipscomb University. I earned a Bachelors degree in Psychology from Murray State University. I have gained a variety of experiences through working for an international summer school program, coaching a wheelchair basketball team, mentoring in various youth ministry settings, and working with adults in a residential addiction treatment program. All of these valuable learning experiences have contributed to my drive and passion for counseling.
