Josie spent her childhood in Nashville and returned to the city that energizes her as an adult. She is a strong believer in self-care, and for her that means spending time with friends – especially while cheering on the Titans and Predators. She enjoys time outdoors, whether that’s on a hike or simply drinking an iced coffee on a stroll in her neighborhood.

How would you describe therapy?

Therapy is the process of looking in a mirror and asking someone to help you clean up all the smudges so you can really see yourself. And then working toward really appreciating what you see.

Most unexpected part of being a therapist?

How important the therapist and client relationship is. I tell my clients that therapy is like dating and you have to find the right match to make meaningful progress.

Favorite part of your job?

Seeing how really simple changes can make a huge difference in someone’s life.

What is Three Cords Therapy

Three Cords Therapy is rooted in the belief that healing happens when your whole self is involved. We were all created with a soul, a body, and a mind and to live fully we must pursue a team that includes all three. When we try and separate the most innate parts of who we are we cut off connection- the most basic human desire. Three Cords aims to help you gently weave yourself back together so that you can not only know yourself better but live in authentic relationships with yourself, God, and others.
