What image best describes your life?

 A well-nourished, deeply-rooted, overflowing shade tree?

Or a shriveled-up, fallen-down, hollowed-out stump?


We know what a tree needs in order to thrive.  Just take away the water, the sun, the soil and watch what happens. The nutrients a tree is given determines how healthy and vibrant that tree will grow.

The same is true for people.  If we are not planted properly or given the nutrients necessary for our overall health and functioning, we too, will struggle to survive.  We will wind up empty, resentful, exhausted.  The opposite of anything deeply rooted or overflowing.

Emotional abundance means we are living deeply rooted, overflowing lives. Our relationships are strong and we are creating a life of peace.

So how do we build a life of emotional abundance?  How do we experience a life of peace?

My passion is to share with you the answer to these questions. Through personal and professional experience, I’ve discovered how to take the broken pieces of life and find indestructible peace with myself, God and with others, and I detail this breakthrough in my book.

Is peace something that has always eluded you? Is peace something you have wanted in your relationships, but have never managed to experience, at least not for any length of time? Do you, too, feel so alone in your brokenness that hope simply seems beyond your reach?

Through my story as well as other’s stories you’ll realize that you can experience the life for which you long. You can experience abundance beyond anything you can imagine. You can experience peace, not just for today, not just for tomorrow.


You can experience peace … for a lifetime!

Professionally speaking, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Nashville, Tennessee. I received an undergraduate degree from Vanderbilt University and a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Trevecca University.

A former member of the Women of Faith worship team, I founded the Counseling Ministry at Grace Chapel Leipers Fork where, in addition to therapy services, I coordinate the family ministry programs, including Dynamic Marriage, Love & Respect, Parenting with Love and Logic, and Celebrate Recovery.

I specialize in individual healing and growth as well as relationship issues. In my writing and speaking I enjoy exploring the topics of spiritual and emotional wholeness in our lives and relationships.

On a personal level, I am just a Southern girl who loves beautiful things, whether it is the beauty of words found in a deeply moving story, the beauty of a meal cooked with love, the beauty of a cup of coffee with a friend, or the beauty of far away landscapes and cultures.  I have fallen passionately in love with the journey and believe that is among the most beautiful gifts to embrace and celebrate.   While I grew up in the Florida sunshine, my husband and I now live in Franklin, TN, just outside of Nashville.
