It is a privilege for me to help my clients find hope and healing in the midst of their struggles. My entire adult life has been given to walking alongside others through painful life events and growth opportunities. For 27 years, I have done a combination of couples therapy, leadership development, grief groups, infertility groups, marriage seminars, and premarital counseling. I also speak regularly on the topics of parenting, marriage and other relational issues.

I have been married for 27 years and have two college children. I love spending time with my family, hosting dinner with good friends, and sitting on my deck overlooking the hills of Nashville.

My passion is helping couples that find themselves stuck in destructive patterns that lead to disconnection. By healing past relational wounds and learning new ways of connecting, my goal is to bring couples back to secure, emotional intimacy. I also work with individuals suffering from anxiety, grief, codependency and trauma.
