Who Do I Work With?
Everyone. I treat everyone regardless of background, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, cultural, religious/spiritual beliefs (or lack thereof), race, color, ethnic origin, sex, age, etc.; however, if your condition/situation is not within my scope of practice, education, training, I will explain why I may not be a good fit for you and help you find an expert in that area.
Following the next section is a list of conditions, symptoms, populations, etc. I am able to treat--this is not an exhaustive list! If you feel your situation/condition is not listed, please make me aware so we can determine if I am a good fit for you.
A Little More About Me:
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and graduate of The University of Tennessee Knoxville where I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Horticulture and Landscape Design and a Master of Science in Social Work. My prior experience and careers include business management, non-profit management, and serving my community for seven years as a law enforcement officer. I began providing clinical services in an outpatient setting that utilized a community mental health model and spent the last six years serving people with substance use disorders/co-occurring mental health disorders in a residential and outpatient chemical dependency treatment center. I am past board member and treasurer for The Symposium for the Advancement of Family Therapy, I teach suicide prevention in the community as a QPR Gatekeeper Instructor and am a member of The University of Tennessee College of Social Work Advisory Council. In my spare time, I am a Realtor (for 16 years) and am adjunct faculty in the UTK College of Social Work teaching substance abuse and social welfare courses. I also collect crazy socks, eat way too many Starburst jelly beans, enjoy hiking and my cat runs my life.
