It can be so hard to navigate life changes. Old wounds reappear, relationships change, and anxieties still follow you. Maybe your anxieties seem out of control. 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 over 16 years of age who are struggling to navigate issues such as trauma, depression, anxiety, and relationship distress. I particularly enjoy working with pre-marital couples.

I often find that our closest relationships greatly impact how we see the world. This can be a secure 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 don’t have to do this alone.


I earned my Masters of Science in Marital and Family Therapy from Lee University and am provisionally licensed in the state of Tennessee as a marriage and family therapist, working towards full licensure while under supervision. My supervisor is Catherine C. Robbins, LMFT.

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.


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.
