Nashville is still a traditional town, one that’s brimming with faith-based counselors and conventional therapists who cater to clients in traditional marriages with traditional family values.
While I am respectful of all faiths and traditions, I also whole-heartedly support alternative lifestyles and non-traditional relationships of every kind, and I am deeply committed to helping people whose belief systems, values, and identities fall outside of cultural norms.
As an LGBT ally, I take great pride in working with gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individuals and their loved ones. I offer an accepting and non-judgmental environment for people who identify across the entire spectrum of gender, orientation, and attraction, as well as those who are dealing with issues surrounding sexual exploration, sexual confusion, and asexuality.

Working from a foundation of honesty, integrity, and consent, I offer practical skills, a trained perspective, and a safe space to work through challenging feelings and new experiences. Whatever your particular situation is, I can provide a down-to-earth approach to help you through it.
I work with a wide array of people and issues, including:
