Tennessee is known for Nashville, the country music capital of the world. In a way, life can be like a country song. It can be positive, filled with honky tonks and a peaceful day on the front porch drinking tea. Other times, it can be sad and it feels like everyone has left you. 

A counselor can take the more positive aspects of your life and turn into a song worth singing. Speak to a Tennessee-based counselor today.

The goal of counseling is to find ways of reconnecting with our sense of authenticity and purpose which is crucial for long lasting psychological healing. Anxiety, grief, anger, and insecurity (the four horses of neurosis) are wild and untamed when we feel separated from our true nature. When we are grounded in our identity, we are able to use these uncomfortable feelings as tools of navigation instead of experiences to be fought and suppressed. My approach to counseling looks for opportunities of supporting underlying depth in order to integrate the full spect...
