I am a psychologist with over 25 years’ experience working with a wide range of adult individuals and couples. I am a 1996 graduate of the University of Tenneessee, Knoxville campus. My internship and post-doctoral residency were completed at the University of Florida, Gainesville campus. Prior to entering private practice, I held positions as the Program Coordinator of a Day Treatment Program at a private psychiatric hospital, a Captain and Chief Mental Health Officer for the United States Air Force at Beale Air Force Base, and a Staff Psychologist for Kaiser's Psychiatry Department. I have been practicing independently since 2004.
Though I work with many types of clients, I specialize in working with people going through difficult times in their lives to include divorce or relationship disruptions, job loss, depression, loss of a loved one or pet, and other life transitions. I love my work because, although I initially see people at a low point in their life, as we work together in a deeper way over time, they often find the courage and skills to make a lasting change and live a life no longer dictated by past experiences and relationships.
In addition to studying counseling psychology, I have specialized training in Grief and Loss, EMDR, Trauma, Internal Family Systems, and Divorce Coaching. I am an End-of-Life Doula.
