Background and Education 
I am a Psychologist, professor, and community speaker.  I am a licensed Psychologist with Health Service Provider designation in the State of Tennessee. I am also an Associate Professor in the Psychology program at Aquinas College. I have a Doctorate of Philosophy in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology.  I obtained my Masters in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and ​Family ​Therapy from Azusa Pacific University and I am also an American Board Certified Sex ​Therapist. 


Clinical Experience 
I have over 20 years of clinical experience.  I specialize in helping couples and individuals resolve conflicts with the ultimate intent of increasing intimacy within the relationship. The process involves healing emotional attachment wounds that enhance each individual’s capacity to be vulnerable and connect with their partner or friend. The process ultimately leads to contact with the authentic self and increased intimacy.​


Specialization 
I also specialize in helping individuals to develop stress reducing strategies that can help patients to cope better with anxiety and depression. In particular, I will employ mindfulness intervention strategies which have research support in addressing and reducing anxiety and depression symptoms. For those struggling with trauma, I am trained in EMDR, which has been proven to eliminate post-traumatic stress symptoms. 
 
Group Therapy
I also provide group therapy for patients. Group therapy is affordable and an extremely effective way to promote change. Group topics that fit into my specialties include couples, anxiety, trauma, and cancer. Group therapy helps patients process experiences while in the context of community.   

Philosophy of Therapy

My philosophy is holistic and my approach enhances the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual facets involved on an individual’s journey to wholeness. I incorporate outcome measures that encourage a collaborative therapeutic approach, which tends to fluidly adapt to each clients' unique needs on a session by session basis.

Ideal Clients Ideal clients are individuals who have a deep desire to connect with others and within themselves in such a way that reflects true love. This is a place for those who are ready to take the first step towards a lifestyle that is characterized by an intimacy level in marriage, committed relationships and friendship that adds depth, quality, richness, and meaningfulness to their lives. If you are on a quest to be known by others and yourself in a way that is authentic and involves transparency that will produce the intimacy you seek, take the next step and begin your intimacy quest journey today!
