Counselor in Knoxville, TN
Personality Disorders have a stigma. Many people believe that they can not be treated. This is simply not true. I enjoy working with those who struggle with personality disorders because they are overlooked and neglected. If you want help with a personality disorder, I am ready to help!
Trauma affects us, but it should not control us. For clients who are comfortable with doing so, I incorporate self-parenting and trauma-based therapy to help clients to revisit their trauma and re-write their own narrative to stop living in the past and prepare for a brighter, healthier future.
I believe that our bodies are our strength, not our importance. The size and appearance of your body means nothing when compared to what your body can do. I want to help others connect their minds and their bodies to become happy in their own skin.
Gestalt therapy is an approach that focuses on connect behaviors to emotions, thoughts, and beliefs. Many times people will do things and be unsure what led to the behavior. This approach also helps to connect the different pillars of wellness.
Move your body and clear your mind! I am a Certified Personal Trainer and I use endorphins released by exercise to enhance the effects of therapy in sequence with holistic therapy.
My main focus when it comes to counseling is the whole person. I believe that there are four pillars to wellness - physical, spiritual, social, and emotional. All four pillars must be healthy before the whole person can be healthy. Mental wellness is just the beginning of overall wellness.
