"The aim of life is self-development. To realize one's nature perfectly - that is what each of us is here for." Oscar Wilde.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor with a private practice in Memphis, Tennessee, I strive to provide a safe, empathic, and respectful environment for clients, regardless of their sex, age, race, culture, background, religious beliefs, or disability, in which we collaboratively develop and work towards your productive goals.
I believe that all individuals have within themselves the capacity for self-development, and my goal is to support and facilitate that growth process. I integrate complementary evidence-based methodologies to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. If you are seeking support in developing self-awareness and learning to live life more effectively, I would be honored to join in your journey. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help you build on your strengths and attain the personal growth you are committed to accomplishing.
Prior to opening my private practice, I worked in an Intensive Outpatient Program treating adults with mental health and substance abuse issues. Having also served as the Program Coordinator for an Intensive Outpatient Program, I oversaw the day to day operations and supervised the treatment team while providing individual and group supervision to clinician's seeking state licensure and to interns seeking master's degrees in Mental Health Counseling. I have significant experience in Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Brief Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, Dialectical-Behavior Therapy, Rational Behavior Problem Solving, and Motivational Interviewing. Evening hours available, in addition to daily hours.
