My Story:I was born and raised here in Knoxville, Tennessee.My parents divorced when I was 15 years old
after a very turbulent 21 years.I was
forced to go to family therapy with my mom and sister and it was in that first,
and only session that I decided that I wanted to become a Counselor.I left that session feeling horrible and like
I had no voice because I was a kid.I
promised myself that I would learn how to be a counselor and never make anyone
feel the way I did that day.After
watching my parents go through such a rough marriage, divorce, and
post-divorce, I became very intrigued with helping other couples.In college, I was determined to become a
Couples and Sex Therapist because I felt that my open-mindedness and my
positive energy could greatly benefit people in this area.At the end of a long, winding road with
several forks in it, I finally opened my practice in April of 2012.Qualifications:University of Tennessee, Knoxville*Bachelor’s of Arts in Psychology
