Welcome! I am glad you have found this site and are considering my services. Here you will find information regarding my scope of practice, a short biography, as well as general information about the practice.
I received my Master of Arts Degree in counseling psychology in 1998 from Treveca Nazarene University and soon began exploring integrative and holistic modalities. I have been in the mental health field since 1995, and in private practice since 1998. I am currently a student at Nashville’s School of Healing Arts . In addition to completing level II EMDR training, my approach incorporates the energetic body and spiritual aspects of the individual while utilizing my professional psychology training as a foundation for treating a wide variety of mental health issues as well as personal and relationship issues.
In addition to private practice in Nashville , I have worked in a variety of settings including outpatient and residential alcohol and chemical dependency treatment centers, as well as elementary and secondary education in the capacity of school counselor and Middle School Coordinator for Safe and Drug Free Schools. I directed a large Christian church counseling center in Bellevue and have worked as admissions coordinator for an intensive in-home counseling facility for children and adolescents and their families
I also have experience working with individuals struggling with self-esteem issues and enjoy working with couples or individuals ready to address the challenges of being in a conscious intimate relationship, parenting, divorce, recovery, and or co dependency issues.
