Hi there, thanks for stopping by! I am a Licensed Master Social Worker in practice with Resiliency Ranch Counseling in Nashville, Tennessee. In my work as a therapist I strive to create an environment of non-judgement and acceptance where you are encouraged to show up just as you are. My therapeutic style is rooted in experiential and integrative practices as well as the belief that in order to make meaningful change we've got to bet on ourselves.
Approaches that invite a deeper connection to the body have been transformational in my personal healing story. As a result, I wholeheartedly believe that the natural world, somatic wisdom and mindfulness based practices offer us the tools necessary to enhance the benefits of talk therapy alone.
Through my outpatient and non profit clinical experience, I have cultivated an interest in working with folks from late adolescence through adulthood in addressing trauma, chronic stress and life transitions of all kinds.
In addition, my personal experience and work as a program director has nurtured an interest in the health and resilience of helping professionals. I am passionate about working with non profit professionals and those in the helping fields to address secondary trauma, burnout and integrate balance back into their lives.
I utilize a variety of approaches to support regulation and increased wellbeing including EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, mindfulness-based therapies, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, peacekeeping circles and trauma sensitive yoga.
Stepping into all the bold, messy and beautiful that we are can be scary. I have a deep respect for the courage it takes to show up, and am honored to walk along side you on your journey to healing.
If you are interested in therapy with me I offer a free 15 minute consultation call so we can see if we're a good fit!
