I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who practices in the Middle Tennessee area.  Born and raised in Nashville, TN I left home to earn a BS in Psychology and Sociology, a Masters in Public Health, and then later returned home to earn my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have spent over 10 years studying and working within the psychology and sociology fields. My experience is in working with women, men, children, and families. I approach therapy with a systems outlook working with individuals, couples, and families through a systemic process.  My focus in my work has centered around complex trauma, single incident traumas, childhood abuse, attachment wounds, relationship dynamics, marital and family therapies. 
In my work with trauma victims, I have used several forms of therapy from play therapy, CBT, TF-CBT, mindfulness, brainspotting, and EMDR Therapy.  Out of all these forms of therapy EMDR Therapy has become the main model of therapy I use for trauma, anxiety, panic, OCD, and depression.  As I continued to see amazing results with this form of therapy, I decided to pursue certification and later consultation status with EMDRIA.  Now I not only provide EMDR therapy for my clients, I also am able to provide consultation for therapists using EMDR Therapy who are seeking basic training or certification status.
I have worked in a faith based non-profit organization for eight (8 ) years and during that time, have learned to integrate the theoretical models of systems therapy and EMDR therapy with the Christian faith for those clients who are seeking support in this area. 
I am an EMDRIA Approved Consultant, an AAMFT Approved Supervisor, am Part I trained in Brainspotting, have training in CSBP (working with children with sexual behavior problems), and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
