Megan McCarter Cates, LPC, MHSP, PLLC, LPC, MHSP, Counselor in Sevierville
Each person has the ability to transform any challenge into evidence of their own strength, resilience and success as long as she or he has the courage to ask for and accept help when help is needed. There is no shame in asking for a doctor's assistance with an injury or condition, just as there is no shame in seeking a therapist's aid when a problem has become too complicated for you or your support network to resolve on your own. Let me help you discover that there is proof in hope.
I respect each individual's unique background, belief system and the guts it takes to start the process of taking on life obstacles. I strive to offer treatment interventions that challenge without overwhelming and are in harmony with each client's core values.
Much of my work experience has focused on trauma, child abuse, domestic and sexual violence recovery for adults, children and adolescents. I also have extensive experience treating anxiety, depression, career and workplace issues, family and relationship difficulties, parenting skills, stress management, grief and loss, self-esteem needs, existential crises and adjustment to life transitions.
