After more than three decades in corporate management and leadership roles,
I can say with much conviction that it’s never too late to consider a new path! In December 2022, I graduated from Lipscomb University with a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, completing a significant chapter in my “second half” pursuit of new, meaningful work. Soon thereafter, I joined Melton
Counseling Group where I am accepting new adult clients for individual, premarital and couple counseling.
Deep within each of us is the innate desire to tell our story, to have it heard by another. It is in this being known that we find acceptance, connection, belonging - love. When our stories hold narratives of abuse and low self-worth, our longing for this deep connection is countered with paralyzing fear that silences us with its taunts: “But if you truly knew me...”. These paradoxical desires and fears often leave us feeling stuck, hopeless and unwilling to risk being truly seen by others and even by ourselves. Our efforts can become focused on perfectionism and hiding or denying our true, authentic selves. As a result, we live small, constricted lives that do not support what we value most.
Offering an eclectic, humanistic/relational/narrative approach to therapy, my sessions often incorporate exploring clients’ cognitive dissonance alongside
strengths-based, solutions-focused interventions. My goal is to create an inviting,
safe, non-judgmental space where you’ll have the opportunity - in your own time, and possibly for the first time - to feel fully seen, heard, known. As wounding and grief and inmost thoughts and fears are brought into the light of
another compassionate soul, healing begins, and we move a few steps closer to our best selves.
You are worthy of a better life, and you don’t have to go it alone. If you want more in your relationships, your work, your sense of inner peace, reach out and join me in this sacred work!
