I use evidence models such as EFT and EMDR to support your journey.
Most people go into relationships with big hopes, a vision of a good future, and the desire to have a fulfilling life. However, somewhere in the process difficulties start to arise, and this hope soon becomes frustration and disappointment. You start to feel discouraged, and might begin to have thoughts of ending the relationship because it is all too much. Whether you are in a new relationship, or you have been together for decades, you are not alone. Every couple experiences a range of difficulties, you might be struggling with communication, constant arguing, or even infidelity. Regardless, I can help you, FREE 15 min consult!

I have clinical training in Polyvagal Interventions, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Family Systems, Theraplay, DBT, Brainspotting, Mindfulness and additional emotional regulation techniques.
The clients I work with are seeking therapy to navigate difficult life transitions, create repair after impactful life experiences, navigate complex relationships, regain their ability to experience a full range of emotion and have accountability without shame. Often, they are aware and understand what should be helpful to them, but struggle to turn that knowledge into change. We will work together to explore your relationship with yourself, how it developed and how it is impacting your ability to live a fulfilled life.

Appointments available, no waitlist! Couples are my specialty. Is my partner there for me? You may feel isolated, abandoned, powerless, and hopeless in your relationship. But good news - I help couples develop warmth, the feeling that “I am lovable and he/she loves me,” that “I can count on them, and I matter to them.” I'm trained in Gottman couples therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy, two of the most effective methods out there today. I also offer the Gottman workshop, “The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work.” It’s for any couple, married/traditional or not. (See FrancesPattonTherapy.co.)

I find great joy and success in working with couples through Emotionally Focused Therapy.
"Conflict is the inflammation, disconnection is the virus." Since hearing this quote from Sue Johnson I have not seen a couple, family or individual where this does not ring true. I want to help reconnect you to those you love, while holding a healthy, non judgmental therapeutic relationship. I will work with you to identify, explore and share emotions that often times feel to vulnerable and raw. As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with focus on systems and attachment theory I like to work with individuals, families and couples of all ages.

Siyo (Hello in Cherokee)! My name is Tishina Carroll. I have been involved in the behavioral health field for over 10 years. A common question I get asked is “Why did you choose to become a therapist”? The answer is easy: I profoundly enjoy helping others to find ways to manage life’s challenges, while also supporting them in developing into the best versions of themselves. I too have struggled with mental health challenges, & I understand the stigma that comes with admitting that you need help. I want my clients to understand that they are not alone in their struggles.
