LaFollette has had a pretty peaceful history, but it was home to some notable people including Howard “Louie Bluie” Armstrong, a prominent blues musician. Listening to the blues can be soothing, but when you have the emotional blues sometimes listening to music isn’t as enjoyable.

If you are suffering from the blues yourself, and not the musical kind, you should seek help to pull you back into the light of happiness. Counselors in the LaFollette area are available now to offer this assistance. Contact a confidential and licensed therapist today.

Welcome! I’m so glad you’re taking this opportunity to commit yourself to growth and development. Reaching out for help takes an immense amount of courage and strength. I applaud you! Breathe easy, the hardest part is over. Because therapists walk alongside you as you navigate life, sometimes at your lowest point, it’s important to take time to find a therapist who fits you best. Let me start by telling you a little bit about myself. I graduated with my M.A. in Counseling in 2015. Since graduation, I have become a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Tennessee. I have worked mainly in community mental health settings. Recently, I have been working with addiction in an outpatient facility. In my career, I have worked with clients on several presenting issues. Specifically: trauma, PTSD, comorbid conditions, anxiety, depression, domestic abuse/violence, relationship/family topics, self-worth/esteem, and life change issues. I am passionate about working with domestic abuse survivors as they work to reclaim their true selves once again. My therapeutic approach can best be defined as eclectic. As mentioned earlier, every therapeutic relationship is unique and requires a different set of tools. I ascribe to a person-centered, humanistic, holistic approach to wellness. I aim to guide you towards your goals through an attentive and accepting atmosphere. I think of myself as a ‘directive, non-directive’ therapist. I will follow where you lead while offering thoughtful challenges and suggestions along the way. Awareness and mindfulness practices are also a large part of my approach professionally, as well as personally. Simply put, you cannot change what you cannot see. Being part of your journey towards healing and wellness is an honor. Because vulnerability can often feel scary, creating a warm and caring environment is my number one goal. I appreciate and respect your willingness to commit to your health and well-being. If this sounds like a good fit for you, I look forward to starting our journey together. Remember, you are not alone!

I have a sincere passion for working with individuals impacted by addiction, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, adjustments to major life changes/events, relationship issues, codependency, family of origin trauma, and various other complex trauma. I want to help you be the best you can be and find self-empowerment in your therapy journey. Through mindful processing and awareness building, I will help you build a foundation for healing as we carefully identify the not so great parts of your life and then pair curated and evidence based real life skills and solutions to problematic behaviors, thoughts/feelings, and experiences. I love working with people from all walks of life & backgrounds. However, my primary specialty is working with adults (18 and up) struggling with relationships, codependency, complex trauma, depression, anxiety, & life adjustment issues. I also pride myself on being a safe space for LGBTQ folx as both an ally and a member of the queer community. I am a non-religious/secular clinician with spiritual values but will never impose any of my personal beliefs or values on my clients unless you explicitly let me know you want to do that kind of work in YOUR therapy. Having worked with a variety of clients in a wide range of settings (for 6 years now), I have grown most in my ability to authentically connect, empathize and validate my clients' feelings, thoughts, and experiences. I cherish social and human connections so much so that I want to be relatable to you and offer you my authentic self in a professional/therapeutic space - I purposely and intentionally strive to create a non-judgmental, safe space for my clients to find self-empowerment, a new sense of energy, and solutions to life's many stressors. At the end of the day, I am only human and so are you - so let's navigate those human experiences together!

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in LaFollette. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in LaFollette, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the LaFollette region and in the state of Tennessee. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in LaFollette or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in LaFollette?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a LaFollette therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

LaFollette therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of LaFollette therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A LaFollette therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in TN, therapists may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 37766 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a LaFollette counselor?

Before seeing your LaFollette therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in LaFollette.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A LaFollette licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a LaFollette counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in LaFollette, Tennessee can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

LaFollette has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
