Meredith was born and raised in the beautiful state of Tennessee and graduated from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Child and Family Studies. Upon graduation, Meredith returned to her hometown of Memphis to complete her Master of Science from the University of Memphis with a degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
Her desire to pursue counseling began while she was an undergraduate student. During this time, Meredith worked with children, survivors of sexual assault, and those with persistent mental illness. In these experiences, Meredith deeply valued the connection that exists in a counseling setting. Meredith’s clinical training and professional experience span a variety of therapeutic settings including a Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) certified treatment facility, non-profit counseling organizations, and now private practice. In these various settings, she gained experience in individual and group counseling, as well as crisis intervention, risk assessments, and psycho-education. Meredith has experience working with individuals bringing issues related to anxiety, depression, trauma, boundaries, life transitions, self-esteem, perfectionism, and relationships. Meredith believes that a human-to-human connection has a great impact on the counseling relationship, and prioritizes this in her work as a counselor. She supports her clients in their journey to create healthy coping skills, establish effective boundaries, and find joy and confidence in the lives they are living.
Meredith enjoys spending time with her husband and two pups, Penny and Coco. She loves testing out a new recipe in the kitchen, reading a good book and getting outdoors as much as possible!
