I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 18 years of experience working in the mental health field. I obtained my undergraduate degree from the University of Tennessee, and my graduate degree from Indiana University. I have worked within many different mental health settings- including schools, corrections, group home settings, community-based mental health, and private practice. While the settings I have worked in are diverse in nature, the theme of the work I do remains the same. I am passionate about partnering with people to heal from the pain and trauma in their lives to seek growth and healing. I recognize that it is a privilege to walk alongside clients through the most challenging times in their lives, and I truly enjoy the work that I do.
My Approach & Values
At Creekside, I will be utilizing evidence-based treatment modalities and interventions, including CBT, DBT and EMDR to help clients achieve wellness and stability. With each new client I see, it is my goal to provide a safe, non-judgmental, warm and compassionate space to unpack life’s challenges and build healthy coping skills for the future.
