“No matter where you are in life right now, no matter who you are, no matter how old you are-it is never too late to be who you are meant to be.” – E and J Hicks

I am a licensed clinical social worker and have been in practice for 25 years.  I began working with at risk teens, serving as a teen counselor with the Oasis Center’s Teen Outreach Program.  I later took a position with the Vanderbilt Department of Psychiatry, where I served as a Psychotherapist, as well as the Clinic Coordinator for the Adult Outpatient Program, where I was ultimately appointed to faculty.

I believe that people have the capacity to change and make improvements in their lives.  And, I see myself as a partner in the change process.  I am someone that you can trust who will listen with compassion-free from judgment.  I am here to support, encourage and motivate you to get the life that you want.  I am easy to talk to and I will share with you my thoughts, ideas and strategies to assist you as you move towards change.  I will work with you as you uncover problems or concerns and develop solutions that work for you.  My office is a safe place where you can be sure that the information you share is kept confidential.  I am compassionate and will treat you with respect and understanding.

I am experienced in the treatment of Mood Disorders, Addiction, Anxiety and Schizophrenia.  Other areas of interest include: life transitions, grief and loss, health and wellness, body image, relationship difficulties, divorce and divorce recovery, women’s issues and issues related to self-esteem or self-worth.  I work with individuals, couples, groups and families.  I practice using the techniques and skills of both Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT.
