I have worked in mental health since 2000 and have been licensed since 2006. I am a Sr Psychological Examiner (a master’s level Psychologist), who is licensed to do counseling as well as testing and assessments. In my career I have pursued a wide range of experiences working with everything from toddlers to adults, and the “worried well” to the chronically mentally ill. I’ve worked within day care centers, schools, high security prisons, PHPs, and residential treatment centers. In other words, I’ve seen and done it all. As a result, I’ve developed a “solution focused” approach that identifies problems hindering maximum potential across all age groups and populations.
Outside of being well rounded I specialize in treating chronic mental health issues, anxiety, addictions, and trauma. I’m also one of a handful of therapists in Tennessee trained in (ART) Accelerated Resolution Therapy, a (very) brief solution focused approach to treating trauma. I’m a good starting point for struggling but undiagnosed children, teens, and young adults. If you are an adult seeking solutions for improved functioning and mental health - or are a worried parent that isn’t sure about your next step, then I am the therapist for you.
