MJ Counseling Staff

Meet our awesome counselors!

Our Team

Laura has served as a ministerial counselor at Mt. Juliet Church of Christ since 2010. She graduated from Freed-Hardeman University in 2006 and received her Masters of Social Work from the University of Tennessee in 2010. I have spent over 17 years studying and working within the psychology and social work fields. 

I strive to create a safe and accepting counseling environment that helps promote growth and healing for my clients. I believe counseling must treat the mind, body, and spirit. Every individual can learn coping skills and develop tools to overcome hardship and promote growth. I encourage my clients to discover their strengths while promoting compassion to self and others. I use God’s truth to guide them toward the changes they seek.

Lindsay is just beginning her work as a ministerial counselor. Previously, she served for 42 years as a teacher and school counselor in both public and private schools, working with all age groups from Kindergarten to Grade 12. She graduated from Freed-Hardeman University in 1978 with a degree in Business Education. She later received her English education certification at Trevecca University. In 1987, Lindsay received her Master’s Degree in Counseling from Tennessee State University. Throughout her career, her continuing education included training in specific areas such as trauma, changing families, and depression/anxiety.

Lindsay’s plan for ministerial counseling is to provide support for her clients and to give them strategies as they seek to navigate specific concerns in their lives. She also believes the key element in every situation is realizing that all concerns may not have the desired resolution; however, a closer walk with Jesus, our Savior, is always the answer.
