Thank you so much for visiting my website, and for your interest in my practice! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Tennessee and Florida with over 2 decades of experience. I am very passionate about the work that I do and the opportunity that I have to assist people in resolving issues and making the changes that they want in their lives.
In my private practice I work with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, OCD, grief, parenting issues, life transitions, LGBTQ issues, and many other emotional health concerns. My main area of specialty is trauma resolution – whether that be from a large traumatic event you feel is continuing to cause you problems ( a “big T Trauma”) or perhaps a series of circumstances in your past (lots of “little t traumas”). In either situation we can continue to experience anxiety, depression and trouble with our current relationships. Evidence-based trauma resolution techniques can help you move past those events and circumstances and allow you to feel better quickly and learn to live in the present rather than the past.
I am very dedicated to my career, and I take every opportunity to expand my knowledge to insure that I am highly effective as a therapist. I am certified in Trauma Informed Hypnotherapy, and I am trained in BAUD therapy, Rapid Resolution Therapy, CBT, solutions focused therapy, and other supportive therapy techniques. Because no one therapy modality fits every client, I strive to utilize a variety of tools to achieve desired outcomes for each individual client that I serve.
My certifications include the National Board of Certified Clinical Hypnotherapists and the Institute for Trauma Informed Hypnotherapy. In addition, I serve on the Board and as a coach and teaching assistant for the Institute for Trauma Informed Hypnotherapy.
