Therapist/Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Founder & CEO
Phone: (615) 618-5029
I have several years experience working with groups, children, adolescents and families who struggle with a wide variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, Mood Disorder/Bipolar Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Autism, Trauma/Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, emotional deregulation, Eating Disorders/eating struggles, grief/bereavement and anger management issues. The evidence-based approaches I use are customized to the client’s needs.
I am a graduate of the University of Tennessee Master's degree program in Social Work. Additionally, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with several years of experience providing therapy services to clients in need. Most recently, I provided school-based individual and family therapy services through Centerstone, a community mental health center. I also have several years of case management experience working with families and individuals in need. Additionally, I have several years of administrative experience supervising, managing, and providing administrative support services to staff members in a community mental health center and public health department environments. I am also an active member of the National Association of Social Workers. I am also a member of the Sumner County Board of Education Pre-Court Diversion Board where I serve as the mental health advisor. Likewise, I serve on the Board for Decisions, Choices and Options as their mental health advisor.
A decision to seek therapy services can be a dubious and frightening process. It is a personal decision that has to be made many times during some of the most challenging and difficult seasons of our lives. As the founder of New Beginnings Counseling Services, I understand this dynamic, and it is my desire to partner with you on a new journey of wholeness and wellness.
You will discover that my services are provided in a warm, friendly, accepting, and inviting environment. It is my joy to walk with you through those initial steps of a new beginning. I use strength-based and systematic approaches to empower my clients to discover their strengths and learn strategies to navigate their struggles in a healthy, positive, and supportive manner. It is my ultimate goal to support and guide you into becoming the best you that you were meant and deserve to be! I would be honored to walk with you as you start your journey toward a new beginning.
