About me

I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Tennessee. I have over 13 years of experience working in an outpatient, private practice setting. I have worked with clients (of all ages) with a wide range of concerns including PTSD, depression, OCD, and compassion fatigue. I have worked primarily with combat veterans and victims of abuse/neglect/crime, but have also worked with survivors of medical trauma and natural disasters.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I see our work together as that of a partnership; I may be the expert on psychological interventions, but you are the expert on you! My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, trauma-focused, and humanistic therapies. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique needs and desired outcomes.

It takes courage to confront those things that are the most frightening to you, and to seek a life outside of those experiences. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

I had been matched with a couple of therapists before Dr. Hanket-Held and we didn't really click, but she made me feel extremely comfortable and it made it a lot easier to open up. She always gives me her full attention and I feel very heard. She is so friendly and makes it so easy for me to talk about how I'm feeling and what's going on in my life. I always look forward to my sessions with her.
