I am so happy that you are here checking out Ebenezer Counseling. Some people think that going to therapy means that they are weak or can’t get themselves together. The truth is, strong people can admit when they need help, and none of us have it all together. Therapy is a safe place to come and learn about yourself and how experiences and circumstances have shaped you. Therapy can be beneficial for concerns ranging from feeling overwhelmed to suffering from a severe mental illness. My goal as a therapist is to identify what your goals and desires are emotionally and behaviorally and help you meet them.

I enjoy working with pre-teens and teenagers, college students, and young adults. I appreciate that therapy is a journey, and I am honored when people choose to let me walk with them through their questions and struggles. Sometimes we believe lies about ourselves that damage our relationships; discovering the Truth helps us find the freedom to be ourselves and to love ourselves and others.

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW). I attended UT Knoxville to receive both my Bachelors and Masters in Social Work. I have experience working with the Knox County School system, Knoxville’s homeless population, and at-risk transition age youth and their families. I have had special training in helping people heal from traumatic experiences (i.e. abuse, natural disasters, loss of loved ones, combat situations). I have also had the training to assist youth as they transition to adulthood (i.e. high school to college/career or moving out on their own).

I grew up in Knoxville and love this community. My husband Aaron and I have been married since 2005 and have two young sons. We enjoy being with our family and friends, going to the park, eating out, seeing movies, cooking at home, playing with our children, and reading a good book.
