Hi there! I specialize in working with adults who have had difficult relationship experiences throughout their lives. Maybe you had a difficult childhood. Maybe you struggle with your current romantic relationship. Maybe you have a difficult time trusting yourself or others. Maybe your relationship is struggling to survive the impact of old wounds. Maybe you do not know how to find relief from the pain of the past.
I have a passion to work with couples and individuals who are struggling to navigate issues such as trauma, anxiety, and relationship distress. I particularly enjoy working with premarital couples. I often find that our closest relationships greatly impact how we see the world. This can be a secure and healthy view of ourselves and others around us; or we can become filled with pain and anxiety.
But, it does not have to be that way.
Each person and each couple are meant to heal and to grow but sometimes, as humans, we get stuck in our pain. This pain is not the end of your story. I invite you to reach out to find healing.
You do not have to do this alone.
I have worked with a multitude of issues including, but not limited to infidelity, marital distress; complex trauma, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, crisis prevention and suicidal ideation. I have found that these issues permeate across generations. Thus, I aim to provide services to individuals, couples, and families, in all stages of life.
ON A PERSONAL NOTE
I have strong roots here in East Tennessee, having been born and raised in Blount County. As a Tennessee native, naturally, I bleed orange for the Vols. My family includes myself, my husband, our daughter, and our two rescue dogs. We love to play games, kayak, and drive through the mountains.
