My therapeutic focus is goal-directed and solution-focused. I conduct evaluations for academic problems, behavioral health issues, & bariatric surgery readiness. I am a certified EMDR therapist. Finally, I have been licensed in TN & MS and have maintained offices in both states for the past 17 years.

Forensice Services – I provide Forensic Psychological services such as evaluations for custody, parenting plan changes, violence risk potential, fitness for duty, pre-employment, and addiction risk, for all ages.
