Hi. My name is Deborah Vaughn and I have dedicated my life to making your life better. I have laughed and I have loved. I have cried and I have lost. I have experienced anxiety and depression, poverty and wealth. I have had beauty and acceptance, age and neglect. I have given birth to four children, two that were incarcerated for crimes, and I have had them brought back to me renewed again in life. I've been sad and lonely and I have been on top of the mountain singing praises to the God of the Universe. Experiences, I've had too many to number, both good and bad, and I have learned from each and every one. Empathy I have for all, because I too have probably been there, or I could have been there easily enough. I have saved them all in my mind and heart so that I can help you through any of them you might need my help with. Sincerely, Deborah

Hi I'm Christy. Do you sometimes find that you are your own worst enemy? Finding fault with everything you do, never feeling like you're living up to expectations? My goal in therapy is to help you turn your inner critic into a compassionate voice that can comfort you when you're down and give you the inspiration you need to reach your goals. We will work together to help you get to know yourself so that you will be able to care for yourself, identify your strengths, and give yourself the encouragement you need to succeed. I will also help you learn how to be more resilient in the face of obstacles so that you will be better able to find new solutions.

You've taken the first step! I'm Necole a licensed clinician counselor in the states of Tennessee, Kentucky, and Utah. I've always desired to understand feelings, behaviour and the human mind; always been driven toward solving the questions that start with why. My passion for therapy began after realizing I was helping many clients with the similar concerns related to identity confusion, limited self-awareness, and low self-confidence. Life is pretty complex and sometimes presents us with challenges that require support and therapeutic interventions to achieve balance and overall wellness. Congratulations to you for your courage, and on your decision to seek empowerment and enhance your current emotional well-being. If you are in need of more support for your journey don't hesitate to reach out. Even if we aren't the right fit let me send you in the right direction.

If you are dealing with depression, grief, loss, anxiety, or trauma, my goal is to help you find what works. So that you can be the best version of yourself and start to live a happier life. My aim is to make therapy collaborative and comfortable. Because I understand the importance of talking to someone and not feeling judged or being criticized.

Depression and Anxiety are the most common diagnoses I see daily. I'm also passionate about helping individuals understand the relationships between their Adverse Childhood Experiences and current mental health needs.

Hello! Thank you for checking me out! Do you feel uninspired or stuck in your life? Do you want to consider what living authentically means for you? Are you a woman who wants to create new or deepen your existing relationships? Do you need support and guidance through a specific issue? Are you a mom looking to create a more full-filled, balanced life? Then, I might be a good fit for you! My name is Jenny Evans and I am a 42y/o Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been counseling for over 11 years. I was born and raised in the South in Middle Tennessee. I grew up around animals and in church at least 3 times a week with my parents having 2 veterinary practices and my mom being the youth director. Therefore, I have developed a strong love for all animals big and small and am an active practicing Southern Baptist Christian today! I have been married 19 years to a loving and supportive husband. Marriage is HARD period but worth it in so many ways if you are willing to roll your sleeves up and dig into learning and growing together through the expected and unexpected ups and downs life with undoubtedly throw your way. I have 2 beautiful and smart daughters that drive me crazy every day but continually teach me so many things about life and myself that it is just unimaginable. We have 2 cats, 2 turtles, and 8 fish today (I haven't done a head count this morning though, sometimes they disappear ;). I always found myself as the "go-to" person friends and family went to during difficult times and/or needing advice. My passion to help others by listening and learning drew me closer to the mental health field. I went on and earned my BA in Psychology at UT Knoxville and my M.ED in Counseling and Human Development at Lindsey Wilson College. I feel such joy when I know I am helping make a difference and/or have helped someone change their life for the better. It is my passion! I feel I am a passionate and innovative leader that has worked in a variety of mental health settings. I have worked in the prison system for women inmates, crisis stabilization, alcohol and other drugs, private practice, outpatient, intensive outpatient, partial-hospitalization, and inpatient treatment. I have worked with countless clients providing care and guidance to individuals working through a plethora of mental health wellness difficulties. Nothing you can say will shock me. I am a big believer that you are your best counselor. You know yourself the best. You just need a little guidance, a little reassurance, and maybe a few new tools along the way to finding your balance within life's up and downs and understanding the importance of processing that in a safe and meaningful way.

As a trauma therapist, I am dedicated to helping individuals, couples and heal from past experiences that have caused emotional pain and distress. With a compassionate and non-judgmental approach, I provide a safe space for clients to explore their feelings and develop coping strategies to manage symptoms of trauma. I have extensive training and experience in evidence-based therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, and mindfulness-based interventions. My goal is to empower clients to reclaim their lives and move forward with confidence and resilience. As a trauma therapist, I understand that trauma can have a profound impact on an individual's mental, emotional, and physical well-being. It can manifest in a variety of ways, including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other mental health conditions. My approach to therapy is grounded in empathy and respect for the client's unique experiences and needs. I believe that healing from trauma involves addressing both the symptoms and underlying causes of distress. In therapy, I work collaboratively with clients to identify triggers, develop coping strategies, and process painful memories in a safe and supportive environment. I also recognize the importance of building resilience and promoting self-care, which may include mindfulness practices, stress reduction techniques, and self-compassion. My training and experience have equipped me to work with a diverse range of clients, including those who have experienced complex trauma, childhood abuse, sexual assault, and other traumatic events.

My name is Lynn Faust Cohen. I am a licensed clinical social worker with 30 years of experience. I specialize in EMDR working exclusively with trauma and grief. My approach is multifaceted. You will become aware of what is alive in you in present time by delving deeply into your thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations. This experience is transformative and will help you to move and change traumatic memories, grief and anxiety. We will take this path together creating trust and a deeper sense of your own ability to navigate unknown territory. I will be fully present without judgement, since I believe that most of us are very hard on ourselves. Self compassion and acceptance is part of our process always allowing whatever needs to come up to surface and then healing happens. This healing transforms your pain into “love” and you become a more spacious and accepting person. Come join me on this journey of exploration and transformation an adventure that will change your life.
