Originally from New Mexico, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Lubbock Christian University, and a Masters of Marriage and Family Therapy from Abilene Christian University. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Tennessee and a certified Life Coach.

Entering my third decade as a therapist, I bring professionalism, experience, and authenticity into the therapy process. My office is always a judgment free zone and I meet clients where they are in their journey. I am trained as an integrative therapist, which means I am trained in multiple approaches and perspectives, and therefore can tailor my approach to what will work best for you. We will go through your history to determine which relationships, wounds and traumas need to be better understood and healed, and how your past might be affecting your present. So often our past is having an impact on our present without us even being aware of it. Gaining insight into our past and present, attending to and healing past wounds and trauma, and learning tools and strategies to better cope individually and in our relationships is what therapy is all about. Being able to change unhealthy patterns of thinking and behaving can lead to a much more fulfilling and joyful life. I use evidence-based therapies and techniques that are proven to help anxiety, depression, relationships, and trauma.  In working with trauma, I am a certified EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) therapist, and also am trained in Brain Spotting. I  love walking  alongside of people to help them get where they want to be in their life and relationships.

On a personal note, I have two grown children and my wife and I reside in Hermitage, Tennessee.  In my free time I love running, hiking, kayaking, and just about anything outdoors.  Woodworking has become a hobby  in the last several years.  

Why do I have a dog on my page you might ask? In 2022  we adopted a mini schnauzer (Buddy). He had such a great disposition  that I decided to train him to be a therapy dog.  He is such a great addition to my practice. He brings comfort, cuteness, and all the unconditional love you could ask for.  There’s more about Animal Assisted Therapy on the next page.

If you are ready to begin your journey, I look forward to hearing from you!
