Restoring the Joy in Connection

There is a moment when you realize, we can't keep doing this. The joy you once experienced with each other has been damaged due to the things that have been going on. Whether you need help with a parent-child relationship, husband-wife, or other family relationships, I offer therapy options to address the challenges you are facing.

We Partner with You for Success

Helping young children (ages 0-12) and their families who are struggling with big emotions or challenging behaviors are the focus of my practice. Children deserve a therapist who knows how to address challenges on their level, in their language, through play and other engaging activities. Instead of sitting and saying like adults or teens, children engage through showing and doing. As a licensed Family Therapist, I value, include, and support parents and other family members in all my work with children, offering parenting and family sessions to increase and maintain progress toward achieving goals. I am an experienced play therapist and family therapist teaching and supervising graduate students and early career professionals. I maintain credentials as a Registered Play Therapist and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, hold certifications in multiple areas, and exceed requirements for continuing education in my field. I especially enjoy working with preschoolers who are struggling. Through innovative brain-informed therapy, I help children, parents, families, and couples discover strengths, uncover new options, and develop new tools in relationships that have become more challenging than joyful. Imagine how life could be different if you weren’t stuck in the same old patterns! Let’s sit down together and discuss the struggles you’ve been facing so that I can help you find your way to solutions. Today can be the day things start to change. After we speak on the phone for a free consultation, use my convenient online scheduling to book appointments at my West Knoxville office. I look forward to walking alongside you in helping things improve for your family.
