"You don't get to rewrite your past, but YOU get to decide how your story ends!" My counseling philosophy is the belief that individuals have power, choice, voice. I have five years counseling experience with individuals with addiction issues, unresolved trauma, and grief and loss. I aim to assist individuals in reconnecting with his or her power of choice and voice, as well as, guiding one toward healing through development of healthy coping skills and peer support. My counseling style is non-judgmental, warm, respectful, and compassionate. My approach to counseling combines Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy. No one individual is the same - treatment plans and dialogue will reflect the specific needs of each individual. Taking the step toward healing can be a daunting task, but I hope to encourage you and help you find peace, happiness, and well-being while on this journey. I look forward to working with you!

My education, 20 years of experience, and license is in clinical social work. As your therapist, I help you to practice the skills related to hope, compassion, and solution focused thinking. If you're feeling lost, and desire help finding the map back to you, then music, art, poetry, and writing can ignite feeling, motivation, and drive. Once the fuel is identified we will use it to help power your ability to heal. Utilizing your resources is key to feeling hopeful. It is very cool to realize your own potential and that what you needed to move forward, you already have. May therapy allow for the revealing of your grit and ability to endure. As you become aware of this energy that is yours, you can begin to use it for yourself right now. What if you use your own power to continue forward and perhaps even discover a new path for healing? All humans know loss. It feels amazing to find hope and to feel found. Your favorite music, art, pets, food, people make you feel alive and connected. Healing is finding that again. Healing is hoping, and having the courage to love and to forgive again. It starts with loving yourself. It can start with our first conversation. I want to help ignite your potential. Oh and of course love is never a mistake. How would it feel to start loving yourself more? Let's talk about reclaiming a future that you're excited about.

Hi! My name is Shara Trumbull, and I am a LCSW with over 20 years of experience. I have worked in a variety of settings: hospitals, medical offices, health departments, and integrated care. I have also enjoyed teaching about mental health and trauma in my community and abroad as well as teaching a Psychology course at a local homeschool cooperative.

I love working with women and helping them walk through infidelity and infertility, depression and anxiety. I have enjoyed working with all of my clients who have a desire to achieve joy no matter what robbed them of that—especially trauma. Listening is a lost art, and my greatest desire is to listen, engage, and walk alongside others in their journey. It takes courage to ask for help and tell someone your story. My hope is that you can find not only peace but also joy in the midst of often stormy, unchangeable, and uncertain circumstances.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Powells Crossroads therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Powells Crossroads due to a higher cost of living.

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

You can also try a Powells Crossroads therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a 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.

A psychologist in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs.

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

Before seeing your 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist 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. A Powells Crossroads 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 professional 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 Powells Crossroads, 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.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

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.
