About Me


"Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we'll ever do."   Brene Brown

Having spent the last twenty years working with individuals and families as a counselor and mediator, I am dedicated to empowering others who are looking for support to change direction in their lives and find more compatibility.  

I view people with a growth mindset.  Aware that life has obstacles including complex relationship issues and inevitable life transitions, I partner with clients to clearly identify blocks in their lives and develop goals for working through them. My style is nonjudgmental, supportive, and relational. 

I am is a licensed therapist (LPC/MHSP) and Recovery Specialist in private practice in Nashville, Tennessee. My specialized training is in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), an evidence-based approach that helps individuals  build deeper connections within themselves and in relationships. 

I am also a Certified Recovery Specialist. From working in the treatment community, I recognize the effects of addiction both on the individual and on those in relationship with them. Including the family system, I partner with recovery team members to provide ongoing support for long term recovery.  

In my practice I frequently see individuals affected by traumatic events and relationship wounding. I am trained in Attachment-based EMDR and use Emotionally Focused Therapy with trauma survivors.

On a personal note, I have a doctorate in counselor education and clinical supervision. My faith is Christian and I welcome individuals of all backgrounds. I enjoy gardening, traveling, and find peace being on or near water. 

In addition to being a therapist, I am a certified mediator. I volunteer at the Nashville Conflict Resolution Center as a third party neutral in disputes and partner. I also work with nonprofit organizations benefitting the Nashville music industry. I enjoy speaking and writing on mental health issues including topics on relationship boundaries, managing conflict, and mindfulness.

The Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit

Rates are clearly published on the website. You are welcome to verbally discuss estimates at any time including during the intake process. Treatment and interventions do not have guaranteed outcomes equivalent to a certain number of sessions, but I can discuss the recommended session attendance and related fees.
