Hi! My name is Andrea and I'm a licensed Clinical Social Worker in Tennessee with experience helping clients with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, parenting issues, motivation, self esteem, and confidence.
As a combat-deployed veteran and military family member, I have first-hand experience with the demands of military life and enjoy working with service members, veterans, and their families to help heal the invisible wounds in their individual, couple, and family relationships; helping them heal and become better partners, parents, and family members.
I also particularly enjoy working with parents. Parenting is a journey for which there is no set road-map and yet it is one of the most significant journeys most people will undertake.
I believe in empowerment and in my practice I bring compassion, honesty, and mutual respect. I utilize an eclectic style of researched based therapeutic approaches that are personalized to each individual I work with and am looking forward to getting to know you.
Additional areas of focus: Attachment Issues, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Communication Problems, Control Issues, Divorce and Separation, Fertility Issues, Isolation / Loneliness, Life Purpose, Military and Veterans Issues, Money and Financial Issues, Pregnancy and Childbirth, Women's Issues, Workplace Issues
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy

I feel very heard and seen when we communicate. I feel like my mind is understood, and that's such a nice, calming feeling. I'm happy to work through issues I've been having and glad I'm getting the care I need through my work with Andrea.
