There's something, or someone, missing... You feel stuck as you struggle to navigate life's challenges, move beyond current circumstances, or cope with unbearable grief. Things seem dark. You're wounded, frustrated, and worried that it won't get better. You need someone to hope with, and maybe even for, you. Let me help you grieve, cultivate your best possible mental health, and enjoy increased well-being despite the fears and insecurities that hold you back. Through our sessions, you will be able to better understand, trust, and express yourself. This increased competence catalyzes your personal development and optimizes your life. With over ten years of specialized training, I tailor each session to your needs and personal style. I'll listen, help you gain clarity on what you want/need/feel, share suggestions/tools/skills, challenge you to make desired changes, remind you of your value (imperfections and all), and confidentially companion you on your therapeutic journey. I promise to be 100% present, fiercely compassionate, non-judgmental, appropriately lighthearted, and dedicated to helping you move through your challenges. I am well versed in the special circumstances and considerations needed when working with the bereaved, celebrity/public figures, LEOs/first responders, diversity factors, and members of various faiths.

At a young age, I was fascinated by other people’s stories. This started with my ability to get lost in books, TV shows, and films, and then led to studying theatre. Eventually, I realized how I could combine my passion for stories, the empathy I felt for others, and the joy I experienced from being a helper – by being a therapist. Once I figured this out, I earned my bachelor's degree in psychology at NYU, and then pursued and earned my doctorate in counseling psychology from the University of Tennessee. As a therapist, I offer an authentic, non-judgmental space, filled with unconditional care, warmth, and, I guarantee, laughter. Having experienced multiple losses in my life, I gained training and have a special interest in providing grief therapy. I believe what is most important when we experience a loss is that we have someone who will sit with us and witness our pain. I also identify strongly as an ally to marginalized communities., and work with clients as they navigate life transitions, such as adjusting to college, a new job, move, or relationship change, and implement Cognitive Processing Therapy as needed for trauma recovery. When I’m not working with clients, I enjoy walking in beautiful East Tennessee and listening to audiobooks, just about any kind of music, and podcasts; decorating my house for various holidays; spending time with my partner and 14-year-old Basset Hound; cooking; and binge-watching TV shows.

Carson’s Village has collected this list of counselors to make it easier for you to find a grief and bereavement specialist. However, the information about the counselor’s skill and practice areas has been provided by the counselor themselves (or their practice group), therefore, we cannot guarantee the counselors on this list are right for you or your specific needs. We recommend that you schedule a consultation with two to three different counselors. Most will meet with you for a brief consultation free of charge. It is important that you feel comfortable with your counselor, so make sure that you find someone who is polite, accommodating, listens and understands your needs, and is conveniently located (or easy to meet/contact). Use consultations to ask about fees and insurance, if the counselor truly specializes in grief and bereavement (or whatever your needs are), and to assess your fit with them in general. As a rule of thumb, follow your gut and don’t select a counselor until you find someone with whom you feel comfortable and supported.
