There are many reasons we may seek therapy but regardless of your reason, we could all benefit from a little extra support in life, especially when times are rough. I am dedicated to helping, and enjoy working with, individuals, adolescents, and families. I have been an LCSW for 13 years in Tennessee. I have experience in treating a wide array of problems; depression, anxiety, domestic violence, anger/aggression, grief, trauma, academic issues, relationship issues & parenting problems.

My name is Sharee Light, and I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist (PhD) with specialty training in clinical neuropsychology. Therefore, I am trained in the emotional and cognitive manifestations of various brain states. I firmly believe in our ability to change our brains by changing our minds! I help clients deal with a variety of issues, ranging from clinical depression and/or anxiety to the emotional and cognitive aftermath of traumatic brain injury (TBI), dementia, and other psychiatric and neurological disorders. I offer cognitive remediation/rehabilitation therapies as a means to address cognitive symptoms, and often this allows a person to then address emotional symptoms that often can be more nagging and difficult to treat. I am also very interested in generally improving clients’ quality of life. As the mental health field as a whole is increasingly realizing that mental health is more than just the absence of negative emotions, but also entails the discernable presence of positive emotions, I am dedicated to helping clients find joy in their life, however challenging or difficult. Thus, I often incorporate behavioral therapies such as behavioral activation, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and positive psychology techniques to enrich the experience of everyday happiness.

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

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 Red Boiling Springs 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 Red Boiling Springs 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 Red Boiling Springs, 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.
