10 years of experience
Solution oriented

Greetings, My name is Norman Shaffer and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Tennessee. I have been practicing as a social worker for over a decade now. I like working with adults who are actively seeking a positive change in their life. I like to partner with clients and guide them towards better outcomes and a healthier balance in life.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Our first session will include information gathering, building rapport, and identifying goals. Plan on prioritizing what you want to focus on during the first few sessions.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

As a therapist, I have been successful in guiding clients towards moments of self-discovery. Helping clients remain motivated and focused on self-care is also a passion of mine.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Knowing how our thoughts and beliefs shape our feelings and behaviors is valuable when restructuring negative thought patterns into more positive patterns and/or disputing maladaptive belief systems.


There is always more than one way to reach a desired therapeutic outcome. I like to explore what works for you.


Many folks struggle with finding purpose/meaning in life. This modality allows us to explore what is important to you.


This modality allows us to focus on self-awareness, freedom, and self-direction.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

Living in the past and/or worrying about the future is stressful for most. Mindfulness allows us to focus on the here and now.
