Who is she?
I appreciate your curiosity to find out a little more about me. As you may have read on the home page, I graduated in 2022 from Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, Kentucky with a Master of Education in Counseling. I interned for a year at Serenity Counseling in Gallatin, Tennessee. I was able to work with so many wonderful individuals and couples who got their, "oooh, I never thought of it that way" moments. The moments of clarity of all the components that have played a part in the reason they seek therapy. The parts that have caused the pain, self-doubt, worry, anger, sadness, and so on. The parts that made them feel they had lost their way and couldn't find where they fit in the world. It was an honor to work with each person to begin to find their way. I learned so much from this internship; not only how to work with my clients, but I learned so much about myself and why I chose this field to work in.
After getting my degree, I partnered with a wonderful friend and fellow counselor to open a practice in Hendersonville, Tennessee. I'm lucky to work under her practice, Ardita Asllani Counseling. We share a lovely office at Haven Holistic Healing in the Indian Lake area of Hendersonville. I feel so very lucky to work beside so many wonderful professionals who share the same love and desire to help others find their way.
When I'm not working, I love to spend time at my favorite place-my house. I'm a homebody and I'm not ashamed of it. When plans that involve leaving my house are canceled, the relief and absolute joy I feel can't be explained. I could tell you that I love adventure, traveling, hiking in rainforests, and running 5k's on Saturday mornings, but that's not me. I love my couch. I love Netflix. And I adore naps. Home is where I get to wear sweatpants and snuggle with my boyfriend, our dog, Leia and our new kitten, Oliver. Why would I ever want to go anywhere else?
