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.

My belief is that treatments must be designed and implemented in collaboration with the couple or individual being counseled. Therefore, my goal is to provide the program and treatment that my patients are...
