I am a certified emotionally focused therapist in Tennessee who helps struggling creative professionals find hope.
You feel tired, overwhelmed and you wish you didn't dread waking up in the morning. Your passions feel distant and hidden from you. You feel like everyone else has it figured out better than you and you keep catching yourself beating yourself up over it. It feels like nothing you do is good enough and you are constantly trying to keep up. You thought it would be different by now and you feel like it's your fault. You find yourself trying to numb the pain but deep down you know it's not helping. Something has to change.

Utilizing the Psychodynamic Perspective, as well as techniques from Narrative Therapy, Experiential Therapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Systems Theory, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), I seek to use the chapters of one’s story to guide the direction of my sessions.
My approach to therapy is collaborative and relational. While woundings often occur in relationship, I also believe that healing happens in relationship. In navigating life woundings, we join together as a team to create safety, security, and trust in order to understand what brought you into the therapy. A firm believer in the power of discovering one’s own voice and core identity, my hope is that clients leave feeling more connected to the person they were created to be. A true extrovert and lover of conversation and exploration, I aim to have clients feel seen, understood, and heard.

"Anything that's human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone" -- Fred Rogers. This is exactly what the therapeutic relationship provides.

My therapeutic approach is client-centered and integrative in nature, while being deeply influenced by attachment theory. In my experience both as a client and as a therapist, Emotionally Focused Therapy is the most powerful therapeutic approach to couples therapy. Too often, people focus on the content of what is wrong ("Why can't he load the dishwasher correctly?" or "Why won't she stop nagging me?") rather than the process of what is actually happening ("I need to feel respected and heard" or "I need more connection"). EFT has been found through much research to effect lasting change and connection.

I practice an evidence-based approach to therapy that includes cognitive-behavioral and emotionally focused interventions.
My private practice is different than most therapy practices. First, my practice is small. My job as director of the Lipscomb Family Therapy Center and position on the faculty in the Marriage and Family Therapy program at Lipscomb University allow me to limit my caseload to 5-7 clients weekly. This assures that my clients receive the attention they deserve. Second, my role in academia places me at the forefront of the field of marriage and family therapy. This means that my practice is informed by scientific research that most private practice therapists can't easily access.

Are you struggling with a difficult, significant person in your life? Do you stuff your feelings, trying to keep the peace then, in frustration, overreact? I have a passion for healthy relationships and believe a strong, therapeutic relationship can provide the context for transformative healing & growth. I work well with people who feel stuck in the way they handle conflict-either avoiding it or repeating unhealthy patterns or behaviors. I can help you expand your awareness about how the past is effecting the present so you can respond to those you love without losing yourself.

I practice emotionally focused , client centered, and strengths based therapy.
Regardless of where you find yourself, you deserve to feel supported and heard. Life brings many seasons. Some seasons can be challenging, making us question our worth and purpose. Other seasons feel permanent, leaving us feeling stuck and hopeless. Or maybe we experience a change, forcing us to shift and transition. My desire is to meet you exactly where you are, no matter the season you find yourself in. I hope to walk with you towards a place of growth as you realize your strengths and self-worth.

Hurley, LMFT of Clarksville, TN and the Emotionally Focused Therapy training as an approach for couples therapy.
I specialize in treating trauma and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) using the modality of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) with a background in marriage and family therapy. I have a systemic approach to therapy, so in treatment I also consider how such issues can impact relationships with peers, marriage, and family units. Post-EMDR areas of growth include boundary development, communication skills, and identity formation.

Along with my Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy (MMFT), I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) for Trauma, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples, and Prepare/Enrich for couples seeking premarital therapy.
It's my belief that within relationships we are both hurt and healed. I practice from a relational approach, specifically Attachment Theory. Attachment shapes how we view ourselves and others, and influences how we "do" close relationships. We may unconsciously carry feelings of anxiety, pain, humiliation, or even abandonment from our relationships. For example, early childhood experiences of sexual abuse, neglect, grief, loss, or vicarious trauma impact one's perception of safety and security. As a result, we may find it difficult to form satisfactory relationships in adulthood. Navigating through this process alone can be hard.Thankfully, you don't have to do it alone.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Nashville Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
