I love working with someone to make positive changes in their lives. We go to therapy to make changes and, as your therapist, I am fully invested in helping you make those changes to live your most meaningful life. I have seen people who believed it was hopeless, felt helpless and lost move towards feeling meaningful and inspired. When you feel like you cannot hold hope, I will hold it for you. I will be there to help you find your best self and feel fulfilled. I specialize in working with teens and adults, starting at age 13, who experience a variety of issues, from low self-esteem to major trauma. I enjoy working with teenagers, developing the relationship that teenagers need to experience positive changes. I am accepting and relaxed, so clients do not feel judged or embarrassed. I create an atmosphere of trust and camaraderie with clients to help them develop their goals and move forward with changes in their emotions and behavior. I have been working in the mental health field for 22 years, providing therapy for the last eight years as a LPC-MHSP. My main treatment style is Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR) along with a Person-Centered Approach and CBT. In utilizing EMDR, I help you connect your emotions and thoughts, make the memories of your trauma feel behind you. After a trauma, you may cognitively understand you are not responsible but emotionally feel guilty. EMDR gives the client a sense of freedom from that guilt or sense of responsibility. As a result, they no longer suffer from the worry and depression brought on by trauma. I utilize CBT and person-centered therapy to help you recognize how your thoughts, emotions and body are connected. We will explore how to change your thinking, which can change how you feel, moving towards a more positive mindset. I also utilize the skills-based positive approach, focusing on the client’s strengths and what they are doing right, building upon those strengths to help them change maladaptive behaviors and creating the best version of themselves.

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

Before seeing your Woodland Mills 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 Woodland Mills.

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 Woodland Mills 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 Woodland Mills 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 Woodland Mills, 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.

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.
