Hi, I'm Amy. Thanks for visiting!

Life is full of daily struggles, and it is sometimes nice to have a caring and non-biased person to help figure things out. I also understand that reaching out to a counselor can be difficult. For a lot of people, counseling can be intimidating, overwhelming, or even uncomfortable.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor-Mental Health Service Provider (LPC-MHSP) and National Certified Counselor (NCC), my goal is to create a therapeutic relationship that is meaningful, non-judgmental, and genuine. I want to help you feel more at ease while discussing the challenges you are facing.

I am originally from Memphis, Tennessee, but I have lived in Nashville since 2005. My private practice office is in Nashville, Tennessee located near Belmont University, Music Row, and Peabody College at Vanderbilt University.

In my career and training, I have worked as a mental health counselor in middle and high school settings and have had internships with non-profit agencies in the Nashville area. In these roles, I have conducted individual therapy, group therapy, crisis intervention, mediations, and organized efforts focused on suicide prevention.  

When I am not counseling, I am an avid sports fan rooting on my favorite hometown teams. Go Preds and Titans! I enjoy traveling, being a dog mom, FaceTiming with my two nieces, and exploring all the new restaurants, activities, and experiences Nashville has to offer. I also volunteer in the community with CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) Nashville, The Sexual Assault Center, and The Foster Care Review Board at Davidson County Juvenile Court.
