"In my 43 years of practice as a psychologist, in Tennessee, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire, I have had the honor and privilege of working with so many patients on their paths of exploration, personal growth, and healing. My approach is grounded in psychodynamic, existential, and Buddhist theories, with a focus on integrating mindfulness and compassion with self and others. It is my belief that the quality of the psychotherapy relationship between therapist and patient is the principal healing force in treatment. Thus, I do my best to form a good and ethical therapeutic relationship with each of my patients."

"I help people navigating transitions in career, relationships, or life role, to gain clarity, achieve balance, and feel empowered to live an authentic and intentional life. When we abandon our authentic selves we may experience depression, anxiety, trouble sleeping, confusion and emptiness. Loss of Self is frequently a result of trauma, abuse, or childhood attachment wounds. I use a combination of depth therapy and EMDR to work through old traumas or negative beliefs about self. I also love working with couples to improve communication and to achieve greater intimacy."

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in 37303 using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
