I am licensed in Tennessee with 17 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, trauma, abuse, and depression. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many qualities that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy takes courage and I am proud of you for getting started!
I believe that all of us have suffered from feeling that we are not in control of our lives. When that experience persists, then our instinct to protect ourselves can push us into patterns of behavior that range from bad habits to behavior that damages relationships and threatens our physical and mental health. I help people by focusing on their strengths rather than their weaknesses, to build supportive relationships with themselves and others, and to help them see themselves as unique and worthwhile persons. We do this together through a therapeutic relationship.
Additional areas of focus: Family conflicts, Grief, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Bipolar disorder, Coaching, Compassion fatigue, Adoption and Foster Care, Attachment Issues, Blended Family Issues, Co-morbidity, Communication Problems, Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (DMDD), Dissociation, Forgiveness, Guilt and Shame, Impulsivity, Men's Issues, Mood Disorders, Panic Disorder and Panic Attacks, Post-traumatic Stress

I accidentally clicked the wrong answer on a couple of these I think. I really enjoy therapy with Bruce. He is always quick to respond, respectful, and very helpful. He makes me feel comfortable and he is very easy to talk to.

This was my fourth venture into Therapy and I was skeptical because the first three did not last long. I feel extremely fortunate to have gotten matched with Bruce. He is a solid guiding force helping me work through all of my flaws and concerns including some I wasn't fully aware of being there. 10/10 definitely recommend Bruce to any and everyone.
