What is your role at Ava Recovery? What does that look like day to day?

Primary therapist. My day typically looks like leading groups, doing sessions, tea and/or walk breaks, and being available for chats with clients at meals or down times.

Marriage and family therapy, master’s degree from Abilene Christian University. From Franklin, TN. I’ve been in this field since starting here in July 2022. Before I had experience in private practice and a sliding scale clinic.


Why do you love working at Ava Recovery?

The people I work with, staff and clients. I love learning from all of them. It’s worth while work.


Why do you love working in this industry?

The potential for change, seeing the difference in people from the beginning of treatment to their discharge.

Acceptance being the vehicle for change – seeing people accept themselves. Grief counseling. Increasing self-compassion. Tea, hiking, time with my spouse and dog, and art.
