Come for the coping skills, stay for the self acceptance that will last a lifetime
Hi there – I’m Jody!
I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Brainspotting Practitioner serving young adults all over the state of Tennessee via telehealth. Specifically, I help hard working people who wish they could be more laid back. My clients cringe when they think about the mistakes they have made and are embarrassed about their unmet goals. As a recovering perfectionist myself, I am uniquely familiar with the work it takes to untangle the expectations in their head. I help them find clarity about how to feel better about themselves. I remind them, just like I had to learn, to stop and look around more often at all the things that are going right in their lives. I help them find forgiveness for the qualities they don’t like in themselves. We pinpoint new habits they want to develop and I hold them accountable. But only if they want. And despite all of this sounding like really heavy stuff, I do it with a surprising amount of humor. Comedy has always been healing for me and I share it when I can.
I really love when I can help young adults find a clear sense of self AND fun in their lives..
I know from experience that you can achieve that elusive combination of driven AND relaxed! I believe that when people with anxiety can reframe their negative thoughts about themselves, they can use their power to change everything – for themselves and the world. You can enjoy the rewards of your work and have time to hang out with friends. You can figure out how to shut off the “What ifs”.
That’s why I hope you schedule a consultation today. Let’s figure out what is possible for you!
