ABOUT SONJA

After personally experiencing the benefits of therapeutic healing, I discovered my own calling in counseling.

I graduated cum laude with a major in psychology from Middle Tennessee State University. I then received a Masters in Counseling from Trevecca Nazarene University. Before starting my private practice, I was a full-time therapist and clinical supervisor at the Woodmont Hills Counseling Center.

In my experience as a counselor, I have found the process of EMDR to be highly effective, so I became one of the few certified EMDR therapists in Nashville. I am also certified as a Prepare/Enrich counselor, which enables me to better work with clients undergoing various types of life changes, such as pre-marital counseling, marriage enrichment and retirement.

My adult clients often come in with a specific issue they want to work on, such as grief, depression, anxiety, or anger. Many are also attempting to reconcile a relationship and learn to better interact with others in their lives.

Each client is very important to me, and I will tailor a specific plan of treatment that will best meet the goals we set.

When I am not doing therapy, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling and cooking. My husband and I live in Brentwood, Tennessee, where we are involved with our church and community.
