Mark H. Barnes, PhD, Psychologist in Knoxville
I welcome people with a wide range of life issues, including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties and general stress, as well as children and adolescents with behavioral, emotional and attentional problems. My approach is tailored to your needs and goals, but usually includes a focus on understanding how you got where you are. This kind of insight can be vitally important in figuring out a practical way to get to a better place in life. When working with kids and teens, I always involve their parents to some extent, so they can better understand and help their children.
In addition to traditional forms of talk therapy, I offer an exciting new treatment approach called Neurofeedback, a form of biofeedback that allows people to modify problematic brainwave patterns to help regulate mood, improve concentration and address many other symptoms. It can often decrease reliance on medication and accelerate progress in talk therapy, too.
Also, I have a great deal of experience with psychological assessment, and can usually provide clarification when problems are mysterious or hard to put into words. And I offer consultation to individuals and parents in cases where people need some explanation or guidance, but not actual treatment.
