Hi, I’m Grace. I’d be honored to connect and journey with you to a place of healing. You can reach me at 615-538-7317 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.

- chronic pain or illness/coping skills
In the counseling world, therapists have the privilege of hearing others’ stories--their dreams and deepest desires along with dark moments of heartache. Essentially, we hear the most sacred parts of our clients’ being. These stories, as challenging as some chapters are, are as unique as a thumbprint and truly help define who we are. Counseling is about gaining insight and understanding of our stories so we have better self awareness and self compassion. I heard once that it is only in the valley that the flowers grow, and I believe this to be true. I’m so grateful for the gift of counseling, and I hope to share that gift with others.
I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Tennessee in 2009. After graduating, I moved back home to Williamson County to pursue business-related jobs and have held positions in retail, sales, and human resources. I’ve always had an interest in mental health, but it wasn’t until I endured serious health complications that I realized my true passion for counseling. In my broken and unhealthy state, I sought counseling and was able to learn coping skills and process through some of my deepest trauma wounds. As time passed, I began to make positive changes and learned vulnerability, acceptance, and self compassion.
I enrolled in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program at Trevecca Nazarene University and received my Masters in May of 2017. I’m also an active member in the Tennessee Licensed Professional Counselors Association and serve as Secretary for the Nashville Area Association for Christian Counselors.
