The Counseling Clinic, LLC is my private counseling practice where I work with adults on a variety of issues including depression, trauma, anxiety, parenting, and relationship issues. My Masters degree is in Marriage and Family Therapy which emphasizes a systemic approach to counseling as opposed to diagnosing individuals; oftentimes the issues that we face lie in our learned ways of adapting that become maladaptive and in our old belief systems that no longer work for us. The process of counseling is mainly identification of client goals and the joint development of a plan to reach those goals.
In addition to my education and experience in the counseling field, I have completed my Juris Doctor degree in law at the University of Memphis as of May 2022. I am unique qualified to assist new or experienced therapists with the set up, development and growth phases of private practice ownership. I have the experience with the clinic, business, legal and ethical demands required to operate a thriving practice as I have done for the past 15 years. I learned my lessons the hard way; you don't have to do the same.
I offer coaching services for individuals or teams who want to improve on their effectiveness and efficiency. I have worked as a manager, regional manager, director and entrepreneur for 25 of my nearly 30 year career.
