One of my primary missions is to approach the lives of my clients with a respectful curiosity about their story, learn more about their individual experience, and then apply therapeutic training towards developing the most effective, healing process possible. I long for each person to feel seen, respected and accepted. I believe that unconditional, positive regard is the foundation and catalyst for transformation and growth. 


I have a master’s degree in Mental Clinical Health Counseling from Trevecca Nazarene University. My undergrad degree is from Auburn University where I majored in elementary education. I am incredibly thankful to be part of the Cypress Counseling Group! I am NCC board certified, have received my Tennessee LPC-MSHP license. I am also a member of The Nashville Area Association of Christian Counselors as well as the Tennessee Licensed Professional Counselor Association.

I moved to Nashvillle with my family in 1977 and have been part of the middle Tennessee community for 46 years! I am a mom to three and have had the adventure and joy of parenting different developmental stages from the newborn years to young adulthood. It is the most challenging and rewarding part of my journey so far. My interests include gardening, thrifting, reading and all things creative. I am also an artist and am honored to have my work displayed at The Refuge Center for Counseling and the counseling center at Christ Community Church.
