John is an incredible therapist. When I initially walked into his office, I had a list of goals I wanted to achieve and things I knew I needed to work through. Our time together gave me the confidence and strength to have healthy, hard conversations. It allowed me to heal old wounds that made my world small, and more importantly understand how they affected me today. Our sessions provided dedicated time to process, learn and grow. If not for John I wouldn’t have pursued new career opportunities, higher education and I certainly would not be married (especially married in a loving and healthy relationship). What I also found reassuring about John is he will tell you when your work is done, and he celebrates that and lets you know his door is always open. The list of praise I have for John is extensive, but what I think is most important is this: John truly, and deeply cares.”

Being human can be hard.
But navigating depression, anxiety, relationships, trauma, grief, divorce, transitions, and other major hurdles on your own isn’t brave ‒ it’s isolating.
The truth is this: every single one of us is dealing with something.
Bravery comes in recognizing what that something is, and healing comes in asking for help.
I provide a space where you can feel safe sharing your story, discover strategies for growth, and ultimately learn to live successfully and happily on your own.
Although the benefits of psychotherapy are universal, the path forward isn’t one-size-fits-all.
That’s why your first session is on me.
By ensuring compatibility between us, I can then confidently begin planning a path forward.
With you steering the ship, I’ll be your first mate: I’ll take the journey with you and help you land safely ashore.
Therapeutic sessions may include:
COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY
Colloquially referred to as “traditional therapy,” CBT focuses on challenging and changing your thoughts and behaviors to improve emotional regulation and coping strategies.
A form of psychotherapy that emphasizes the human condition; focuses on our freedom of choice as a means for creating our own happiness and satisfaction.
EYE MOVEMENT DESENSITIZATION REPROCESSING (EMDR)
A technique used to target and resolve specific traumatic incidents; involves engaging in bilateral stimulation such as side-to-side eye movement or hand tapping.
A service that we can use to communicate virtually from wherever you are. Ease of scheduling and rescheduling along with having a therapy session from the comfort of your home.
We all deal with something.
But it doesn’t mean you are that something. Let’s uncover the real you:
1. Schedule your 30-minute consultation.
2. Create a map of where you want to go.
3. Embark upon the journey to get there.
Everyone needs help.
Whether we’ve experienced trauma, feel strained in our relationships, suffer from anxiousness or depression, or simply desire a life we can live more fully, as humans, we all need help navigating life’s challenges to get where we want to be.
And you know what? Every single one of us deserves to get there.
By getting to know you — your past, your present, and your future goals — we can begin to peel back the layers to reveal your fullest self. Trained in EMDR therapy and Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy, I’ve spent more than a decade helping Nashvillians fulfill their potential through the courageous journey of psychotherapy.
They got there. And so can you.
Your first 30-minute session is on the house. From there, a 50-minute session is $150.
Declutter your brain.
Live more clearly.

John is a wonderful therapist! My husband and I were ready to call it quits when we first met him. He helped us find our way back to each other when we were certain there was no hope. He saved our marriage!”
