I earned my Master of Science in Social Work at the University of Texas at Austin, and continued my post grad education by training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Prepare-Enrich premarital counseling, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Brainspotting Levels I & II, Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI), and Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TSY). I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers, and I belong to an organized community of professionals supporting one another in our work with psychedelic integration. I currently see clients in person and via telehealth through my private practice, Sacred Wellness.
My husband and I are Texas transplants who have grown to love Tennessee. Together, we parent four children, ages 27, 24, 18, and 15. When I am not holding space for my clients, you can find me playing board games with my family, enjoying all the water (lakes, oceans, and hot baths), reading, cooking, or practicing yoga.
How I work with clients
My aim is to provide compassionate care by way of authentic regard for each client and their unique experiences. I use a strengths-based integrative approach to therapy, and I strongly believe that everyone has the capacity for growth and change. My heart is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore their truest self. I work closely with my clients to integrate the whole of their experiences of the body, mind, and spirit into our work.
