COUNSELING SERVICES

I offer counseling services for adult individuals and couples on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. My rate is $150 per clinical hour. I accept cash, check, and all major credit cards.

A majority of my counseling and life coaching sessions are conducted over an online video platform. Studies have shown telehealth to be just as effective as traditional in-person therapy, and it's often much more convenient and accessible than in-person sessions. If you're interested in working with me, I'm happy to schedule a free 15 minute session to discuss your goals and answer any questions. Please contact me to set up a meeting, I look forward to connecting with you!

WHO AM I AS A THERAPIST?

I am not a passive therapist.  My goal is to shift something inside of you that allows you to make lasting changes in your life. I work with intention and specific therapeutic modalities, removing blocks and allowing you to become your best self. You will experience a sense of freedom and lightness when these blocks are removed, and you will understand who you are at your core in a way that you haven't before. 

As a therapist and coach I take a more personable stance, a less clinical and more genuinely curious approach to understanding each individual client. The foundation of my training is in Systems Theory, which simply means that as we work together, we will explore your family and personal relationships, behavioral patterns, and life choices to help create balance and healing. I have extensive training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples and individuals and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for addressing trauma in individual adults.

COUPLES COUNSELING

I work with couples in all stages of their relationship - from premarital counseling, to improving communication and connection in marriage, to couples in crisis. I use an emotionally focused (EFT) approach to help couples uncover underlying emotions and more easily identify their needs. This creates positive change in the couple's interactions and heals past wounds. For more information on EFT, visit www.iceeft.com.

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING

I use an attachment-focused approach with individual clients, and I am trained in the use of EMDR (Eye movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma - including recent trauma, childhood trauma, and relational trauma, as well as useful in treating other areas, such as depression, anxiety, and feelings of being stuck. While EMDR is commonly used to address big traumas, it is also extremely effective for people who simply feel stuck, lost, sad, or confused about where they are in life. I have found that EMDR is the fastest way to make sense of the blocks and create long lasting change in my clients. For more information on EMDR, visit www.emdr.com.

Man Walking in Fields

For individual counseling I also use a combination of mindfulness therapy and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) to address anxiety, fear, racing thoughts, and negative thought patterns that interfere with life in many ways. This treatment approach gives you mindfulness tools to use at home between sessions to reduce anxiety and stress and calm the nervous system. With practice, you will become more in control of your thoughts, which directly affect your mood, energy levels, health and overall outlook in life. This approach is very empowering because it allows you to create an awareness of your thought patterns and puts you in control of how you feel physically and mentally, rather than allowing your circumstances to determine your happiness or relying on long-term therapy to relieve stress.

Feel free to contact me at 931-637-4657 if you have questions about individual counseling or couples counseling. I'm happy to do a free consultation (15 minutes) over the phone to determine if I am the right fit for you. If I'm not the right fit, I can refer you to someone who is!
