I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in couples,
and family therapy. As a private practitioner in Murfreesboro, TN, I work with a broad spectrum of clients. My areas of expertise include but are not limited to: Marital and Premarital Couples Counseling; Highly-Conflicted Couples Intensive Counseling; Trauma Therapy; Anger Management (court-ordered and self-referred); Stress Management; Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, and Grief/Bereavement;
Individual, Couple, and Family Systems Therapy; and Parenting Support (court-ordered and self-referred).
From an interactive, forward-moving, solution-focused perspective, I provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges while integrating complementary modalities and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each individual's needs. Having empathy, compassion, and understanding as a foundation of the client-therapist relationship, we work together to build on strengths toward achieving the personal growth the client is committed to accomplishing.
In addition to being a prominent relationship therapist in Rutherford, Williamson, Wilson, and Davidson Counties, I have presented at marriage conferences and to general audiences speaking on topics pertaining to relationship skill building (e.g. - boundaries, communication, conflict resolution, strengths/growth areas, family mapping) and basic life issues (e.g. - stress, anger, loneliness, grieving/loss). Additionally, I am an active training facilitator for the international Prepare-Enrich marriage counseling mentoring program.
When I am not in the office I enjoy spending time with family and friends, exploring and taking in the natural beauty of Middle Tennessee, watching movies, attending concerts, and creating memories along the way. My passion for life and people is multi-generational, passed down from my grandfather. This career path allows me to breathe life into people in ways that offer hope, encouragement, and a desire to live life to its fullest.
