Anxiety Counselor

Healing happens in places of connection & authentic care​

If you choose to work with me, you will learn about the patterns that have been holding you back from living the life that you love. You’ll learn the skills you need to navigate those bad days and still show up in the ways that matter. And along the way, you’ll feel fully supported, you’ll finally feel understood, and you’ll start to feel like yourself again.

I am here to help you create genuine and lasting change.

You are worthy of finding a safe and supportive place that promotes growth & healing. And I’m here to offer that space to you if you’re ready for genuine change. You may feel stuck in patterns of anxiety, depression, and poor self-image. You’re a parent who feels so lost as to how to help your teen navigate poor self-image, an eating disorder, or worsening anxiety. Whatever it is that has you seeking counseling, you’re ready for real change and a counselor who can help you navigate how to get there. If you’re looking for someone warm, approachable, and who can help you or your teen truly focus on what matters, I’d love to chat!


If you are looking for counseling for millennials or adolescents in Nashville or Franklin, TN, I’m here to help you!

I received my Bachelors of Science in Psychology with a Minor in Sociology in 2012. Afterwards, I went on to complete a Masters of Science in Mental Clinical Health Counseling from Lipscomb University in 2015. I have been seeing clients since 2014 in a variety of inpatient, outpatient, and residential settings. 

Through my experiences as a counselor in various settings, I have been able to specialize in counseling millennials and teenagers. I specifically provide specialized counseling for adolescents and young adults who have negative body image, eating disorders, attachment & relationship issues, and trauma. In addition, I hold a Licensed Professional Counselor with Mental Health Services Provider designation (LPC-MHSP #5190) in the state of Tennessee. 


My priority is creating a safe space that fosters your healing & growth

I believe that the unhealthy patterns that people face are actually creative solutions to life’s difficulties & unmet needs – not personal or moral failures. It is my mission to help my clients understand and embrace that very creativity & resourcefulness. Then, I help my clients channel that same effort into more helpful solutions through counseling. Because of this nonjudgmental perspective, clients find that opening up to me feels natural and easy. Further, it helps create a safe place to explore issues that are uncomfortable or painful. 

Whenever you're ready to talk, I'm here to listen.

Finding a counselor who you trust and feel safe exploring difficult, uncomfortable, and personal issues with is important. While most of my clients would tell you that it’s easy to feel a connection with me from the start of the first session, I want to help establish whether this is a good fit. That’s why I offer free 15-minute consultation calls for potential clients.
