We all have areas of our lives where we feel stuck. We can’t seem to figure out what’s going on inside us or in our situations. Even if we see a problem, we might not know how to navigate it. Counseling is an experience that helps you safely explore these places to make sense of your experience and find more clarity for the experiences to come. Together, we sift through the combination of thoughts, emotions, experiences, and patterns that make up who we are to find deeper understanding, clarity, and peace.

Your quarter-life crisis deserves to be met with compassion and understanding. Maybe you feel stuck repeating the same patterns that aren’t working, or you’re not sure whether you want to keep showing up to a relationship, job, or church that doesn’t meet your needs. Maybe you've been feeling isolated from your community because of changes in your life or your beliefs. You just know that you feel overwhelmed and disconnected from what your life is supposed to be like. You want something in your life to feel meaningful and to make sense.

It's not very often that males are encouraged to seek help when dealing with the challenges of life. As a result, we resort to age-old adages that tell us to ignore the pain, 'man up', and soldier through it. But the fact of the matter is that we feel, we suffer, and we hurt and it has nothing to do with being a man and everything to do with being a human being. Men want healthy relationships, we want to be happy, we want to feel in control of our lives and be fulfilled. Taking the step towards mental health is an integral part of this process.

I am a Baby Boomer. I realize I have probably lived three-quarters of my life, during which I have experienced most of the situations one can experience throughout one's life. I still have a positive outlook on the time I have left, and I want all of my generation to feel that their presence on this earth has made a difference. I have counseled families who promised to "never put Mom in a nursing home". I have counseled those who never thought they would end up there. Retirees, divorcees, widows/widowers, empty nesters, mid-life crises, what's left now?, all are welcome. Latter life situations are my specialty.

Are you longing for a space to bring your whole self and know that who you are will be accepted regardless of your unique identity or sexual orientation? Perhaps you have an Autism or ADHD diagnosis and long for deeper, richer interpersonal relationships but you don't know how to start. Many of us desire safe spaces to explore questions without judgement, coercion, or comparison. You crave the freedom to be your authentic self even if you aren’t quite sure what that looks like just yet. Are struggling to make who you are align with what you have always believed which no longer fits with the person you are today?

Relationships build the context of our lives. We learn who we are from those around us. This exchange has the power to influence our thoughts and beliefs about ourselves. While relationships have the beautiful ability to build us up, encourage us, and support us, they also have the reverse effect. Have you ever been in a relationship that tore you down, made you question your worth, damaged your self-esteem, or left you wondering why you weren't enough? Have these unhealthy or toxic relationships hindered your ability to seek out and sustain a healthy one? This story doesn't have to be yours forever and you're not alone.

What type of Chattanooga mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Chattanooga?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
