I know that change can be hard, and that making the decision to call a therapist is difficult. I believe that we are all capable and deserving of living our best life, and that feeling safe and supported makes it easier to make those changes. Life can be messy, and I am here to help. I have a passion for helping others, and am grateful I get to be a part of that change process. I utilize an individual approach to meet the needs of each client, and want each client to feel heard, valued, and understood.

If you are broken and in need of healing from abuse and trauma and/or are trying to parent a "child forgotten" you have come to the right place. Suffering through the aftermath of sexual abuse, domestic violence, emotional abuse, foster care and extreme neglect often makes it nearly impossible to trust others, which is a necessary starting point for healthy relationship formation. Built to Bond, Inc. is designed to enable you to make sense of your trauma and begin the healing process from a Christian perspective through the "Treat PTSD with PTSD to get PTSD" treatment modality.

As an adult, taking that first step towards healing can be difficult, anxiety producing, and scary. This is no different for children. Children experience those same emotions and stress but may struggle to express them in a healthy manner. Reaching out to someone you can trust can help your child begin to find their direction in an ever-changing society. Finding a judgement free place where life's challenges can be addressed is difficult, but I can offer that space in a comfortable atmosphere with years of experience.

Perhaps you are struggling with a recent loss, a sudden health crisis, betrayal or conflict with a loved one. Perhaps you have suffered trauma that you have never shared and holding the secret has become burdensome and lonely. Maybe you struggle with depression or anxiety or racing thoughts that keep you up at night. Maybe the old ways you used to cope no longer help and are actually causing you or your loved ones more pain. Our old ways of coping can become self-limiting and cause us to “live small”. We hide our authentic selves, become self-critical and feel powerless to change both our inner experience and our outer situation.

My clients often are experiencing a life that feels without meaning and control. A life that is filled with chronic stress. This stress results from conflict in our relationships and multiple roles in life. At other times,this stress is residue from unresolved life events that have depleted the ability to see through a lens of love. Life then naturally becomes driven by fear. If you are seeking to learn a way to create a life that feels worth living, despite any circumstance. I can teach you the way. The majority of my clients are experiencing anxiety, anger and depression in their daily life.

Life is filled with change. Oftentimes, we have to confront things we never expected. Sometimes, we are faced with overwhelming situations, such as loss or trauma, and we need someone to walk alongside us. But for all of us, there are times we know we want our lives to be different, but we may be unsure how to make changes. Perhaps, our moods or feelings seem to command our choices, or perhaps we just don't know what steps to take first. Therapy is an opportunity for us to pursue desired changes with the assistance that can help us achieve our goals.

There are so many therapists out there. How do you know which one is right for you? I don't think there is any issue or problem that I'm not willing to try and work with. Of course this doesn't mean I'm an expert on every subject or your issue. One of the most important parts of therapy is the trust between the client and the therapist. This is done by establishing a rapport with the client and creating a safe environment so that she or he feels completely safe and comfortable to talk about his or her issues. Feel free to contact me and talk with me to see if we might be a good fit. There is no charge for this.

What type of Knoxville 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 Knoxville?
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.
