Why Play Therapy? This is a frequently asked question. I believe that through play, children express themselves in their own developmentally appropriate way. Through play and other expressive therapies, children can resolve problems, cope with difficult emotions,improve cognitive development and help resolve inner conflicts. Although I work mainly with children, my education and training also allow me the opportunity to work with adults on certain issues.

Stressed? Tired? Can’t seem to get ahead? Don't like yourself? Finding that sense of security and strength in the midst of changes, challenges, and relationships is difficult, and some feel that taking time to stop and reflect is impossible; yet often it is one of the most important steps in moving forward or getting unstuck. Stopping and working with a trained therapist can help facilitate change in meaningful and impactful ways. It can also help avoid a complete life derailment. I believe that the work I do with my clients is sacred, which is why I employee some of the most up to date and clinically validated treatment techniques.

Are you unhappy? Are you feeling sad? Are you feeling stressed out? Do you worry often and unable to focus? Are you experiencing some challenges that have become too overwhelming? One of the hardest things to do is accept that you are struggling and need help. I know it can be hard to ask for help sometimes. Therapy is a safe space to explore and understand how to cope during these difficult times.

When you have anxiety, it can feel like your world is closing in on you. Your mind may never stop racing or you feel so worried and panicked that you just want to escape for a while. You have trouble sleeping and eating and you can't enjoy life. You may have reached out for help, but it seems like no one can really understand what it's like to constantly feel on edge and afraid... like your world is going to end.

Over the past 15 years, I have loved working with every angle of the family. If you looked at my schedule on any given day, you'd probably see a few married couples, some exhausted and burnt-out parents, a college student, a 4th-12th grader, someone having an affair, someone who has been crushed by a loss or a person who is wrestling through their attraction to the same gender. I often find that a person's willingness to come in and simply talk about things creates at least 50% of the change they are looking for.

You've been caught up in relationship patterns that leave you feeling drained, confused, and stuck. You're starting to believe there may be something wrong with you, that you're with the wrong person, or that relationships are too painful and difficult. You feel anxious, worried, confused, and sometimes downright trapped. To make matters worse, the world feels so chaotic and unsafe at the moment that it feels impossible to manage it all or get through the day. When bad things inevitably happen to or around us, and we don’t have a safe, supportive place to turn, we’re left with critical voices in our heads and fear in our bodies.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Chattanooga, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Chattanooga are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Chattanooga. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Chattanooga
