After spending 6 years as a school-based therapist, I am very familiar with the struggles children and teens face today. I am passionate about coming alongside children, adolescents, and young adults to facilitate positive change and growth by creating a warm, collaborative environment that values each individual’s unique strengths and personality. I have experience working with various challenges including depression, anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, school issues and other behavioral challenges. I utilize a relational, strengths-based approach when collaborating with clients, while incorporating evidenced based practices such as cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness practices, and play-based interventions. I feel truly honored to work with individuals during times of struggle, change, and growth and I strive to create a safe space for each client to grow, heal, and reach their therapeutic goals.
I moved to Nashville 7 years ago from Tallahassee, Florida where I completed my Bachelors and Masters in Social Work at Florida State University. During that time, I completed an internship with Florida Baptist Children’s Homes which led me to work as a foster care counselor when I moved to Tennessee. These experiences helped me realize my passion is working with children and adolescents. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been practicing since 2015.

I enjoy spending time outdoors, starting creative new hobbies (that sometimes get incorporated into sessions), traveling, and playing with my German shepherd, Ava.
