Hello! I am so glad you stopped by and excited to get to work with you. My approach is always collaborative with each client. Each client is unique and so should each approach to tackle individual challenges. When we think about going to or starting the therapeutic process it is not an easy decision to begin, however, it can be so rewarding to make the changes or achieve goals set with real-time progress and with support. I am honest with all of my clients and understand that the therapeutic relationship takes time to establish and want clients to realize that real change takes time and is never a sprint to the finish line.

I am licensed to work with those in the state of Tennessee, USA, with 12 years of professional work experience as a therapist. I have experience in helping clients with family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, mood disorders, anxiety, & depression. During this time, I also taught parenting classes which allowed me to help parents in their relationship with their children. I am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). While I have been trained in various therapy techniques, I have found most relation in the Solution Focused umbrella utilizing Narrative therapy. Solution Focused therapy helps people recognize how to work towards what they want- including how Narrative therapy sees each person’s storyline from their past, separating themselves from their problem (instead of living stuck), and recognizing how they want their story to continue. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths to overcome your challenges. Different situations can take place without our ability to feel prepared. You can take time for yourself and begin processing, in a safe and secure manner, through teletherapy services.

Thank you for stopping by my page! What you will experience as my client will always be based upon the following: professionalism, care, and experience. I consider effective mental health treatment to be a life-changing experience and it is my goal as your therapist to support you 100% in reaching your goals. My philosophy is this: "I'll always help if you'll always try." I have worked with a wide variety of people, and find that almost all of us can connect as fellow humans. I am currently licensed in North Carolina, West Virginia, Florida, Tennessee, and California, and make my home in beautiful Southern Oregon. PLEASE NOTE THAT I HAVE A FULL-TIME PRACTICE OUTSIDE OF GROW AND IF YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT CHOICE IS MADE FOR THE FOLLOWING DAY OR 2-3 DAYS AWAY, I WILL LIKELY HAVE TO MOVE IT OUT SEVERAL DAYS. IF POSSIBLE, CHOOSING A DAY 7-10 DAYS OUT WOULD BE IDEAL. IF YOUR NEED IS MORE EMERGENT, THEN PLEASE ACCESS CARE LOCALLY OR YOU MAY FIND ANOTHER THERAPIST ON GROW THERAPY THAT IS AVAILABLE SOONER. I TRY TO BALANCE HELPING AS MANY AS I CAN WITHOUT COMPROMISING THE CARE. THANK YOU, SAM

I specialize in helping individuals who are struggling with generational trauma re-learn and recreate new and healthy patterns in adulthood. We inherit certain traits from those traumas, how they were handled by the adults around us, and our own "fight or flight" response. My goal is to help you identify your triggers and heal from them during our sessions. As an outcome-focused therapist, I will provide a gentle, safe space for you to explore the roots of your challenges. I will help you gain new insights into yourself and help you find natural relief from these obstacles.

In addition to working at the WPB VA Medical Center, she worked in private practice in Jupiter, FL.

It is not easy to ask for help, but sometimes we have to admit what we are doing may not be working. 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. Therapy is about healing, motivation, and empowerment. I specialize in working with adolescents, adults/seniors on an array of different issues. 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. One of the most important things I learned from being a Social worker is that I may be a person's last stop for help. Therefore, I have dedicated myself to utilizing my skill sets for the best interest of my clients; so they feel individualized and supported through their journey. Please feel free to reach out.

Hello, I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in the states of Texas and Tennessee with 30 years of counseling and ministry experience. I began as a minister of the Gospel in the Southern Baptist tradition in 1993 working with the homeless to overcome the struggles of addiction and hopelessness in North Carolina and Tennessee. From there, I became a case manager in a rural oupatient behavioral health clinic helping the chronically mentally ill live independently outside of the institutional settings. As my family of five children grew, my wife encouraged me to join the military in 2007 and for the next 13 years we served alongside our Soldiers and their Families as a chaplain. There, I learned through experience how to work through the stress of multiple transitions, the unyeilding demands for time and energy, and the unjust nature of toxic environments. I learned how to support those who wanted to strengthen themselves and their relationships in these environments and to ultimately be at peace with who they are and who they want to be. As I have matured in my training and become licensed in marriage and family therapy, I have found that I now specialize in using Solution Focused therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help individuals identify their strengths and the beliefs that are guiding their behavior. With this knowledge, people can begin to choose who they want to be.

Hi im Greg Kirkham! Im a licensed therapist, practicing for over 21 years. I specialize in treating trauma. Now, you may be saying “but I don’t have trauma!” Trauma comes in all shapes and sizes and is often not recognized as such, but almost always has a significant impact on someone’s overall mental, physical and emotional health. Trauma also presents in many different forms, including struggles with depression, anxiety and anger management. Over my career I have worked with an array of populations, including children/families, juvenile sex offenders, and even convicts. Currently, I serve those who served us as a therapist with the VA in middle TN. Over the past seven years, I’ve seen evidence-based treatments work wonders with PTSD and trauma in our veterans. With GrowTherapy, I’m now able to provide these and other treatments to YOU! Whether you’re not real sure or highly motivated to get help, I’d love to discuss options and see if we’re a good fit! Thanks for reading and congratulations on taking the first step towards a healthier and more fulfilling life!

Hello and thank you for taking the time to reach out! Do you ever have those days when things are especially difficult?? Many of the people that I meet are looking for support with mental health, substance abuse, and managing traumatic events. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker as well as a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I also have extensive experience supporting teenagers who have experienced trauma, which led me to become a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. Currently, I work with adults and youth, and I'm a strong believer in the mental/physical health connection. I am currently a social worker for a small hospice team in my area so am comfortable having uncomfortable conversations. I believe in strengths-based recovery that looks at all the systems that can impact us. Bits and pieces of different models incorporated together tend to have the most benefit, based on the person's needs. I have seen so many great successes! I enjoy supporting the people I work with and going through their journey with them. I am currently licensed in both IL and TN. When I am not in sessions, you will find me hiking with the doggos, road-tripping in the Jeep, and going into "Mom Mode" with my three kids. I look forward to connecting with you :)

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 13 years of experience helping clients. I am a proud Appalachian-American that was born and raised deep in the mountains of Upper Northeast TN. Although my life experience is about what one would expect from this area (cue banjo music), my work experience is vastly different. I have been fortunate to get to work with individuals from all walks of life. I have worked with clients (thanks to the internet) from all over the world, various cultures, religious beliefs, race, gender spectrums and socioeconomic status. One thing I have learned in my work with all of these individuals is that although each of their stories are unique, ultimately, they all seek/want the same core things. I think much of my success in working with a wide assortment of clients is that I attempt to be open, understanding, curious and cultivate a nonjudgmental atmosphere for our sessions. The working relationship between a therapist and their client is a key factor to client’s achieving treatment goals.

Welcome! Are you dealing with the lingering effects of trauma or struggling with the anxieties of daily life? Looking for a personable, empathetic, and energetic therapist? I am proud to walk on this healing journey with you, as you do not have to walk alone. My therapeutic approach is Holistic and person-centered. That is addressing the mind, body, and spirit while holding the belief that everyone is inherently driven toward and has the capacity for growth and self-actualization. My role as a therapist, is to provide a safe, non-judgmental, empathic, and welcoming space for you, regardless of your sex, age, race, culture, religious beliefs, or disability. I was trained to help you figure out what is best for you, rather than giving direct advice or telling you what to do, however, I will be there to guide you along the way. We will work collaboratively to identify skills that are beneficial for you during challenging times. This approach will support growth in self-esteem, confidence, and the ability to regulate your emotions. During our sessions, we will discuss issues that you would like to work on or challenges you might be facing in life. I am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). These three therapeutic approaches help alleviate the challenges that come with trauma, PTSD, and personality disorders. The skills learned through DBT also assist with anxiety and depression. I will have you challenge negative thoughts and look at other ways to view issues or situations and learn to utilize healthy coping skills. I also like to incorporate mindfulness skills, such as guided meditations, worksheets, practice, and suggested reading.

I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Tennessee who has been providing individual counseling for approximately four years. I had a background in social work prior to becoming a therapist, so I have always had a passion for helping people. I help people who are eager for change and growth but may be overwhelmed by challenging emotions or experiences that keep them stuck in seemingly endless cycles. As a therapist, I hope to cultivate a relationship that facilitates change, wholeness, and health wherever you are in your journey. I want to create a space where you feel free to bring your whole self: body, mind, and spirit. I look forward to walking alongside of you as you take your first steps toward deeper levels of health and wholeness.

I have always had a passion to help others! I was the kind of kid who took Halloween candy to school to help kids who were crying feel better. I definitely think my innate compassion and my passion for helping others definetly comes across in my work. I combine this with my knowledge, ongoing education, and experience to give the highest quality of care to my clients! I have been a licensed professional counselor with over 7 years of experience in working with a wide range of mental health disorders. I believe this brings a level of wisdom and experience to the services I offer my clients. In order to enhance my services, I completed extra coursework and training to render high-quality and knowledgeable. Through my experiences, I have had a particularly strong background in helping women and adolescents navigate various life challenges, including academic/job-related stress, past relationship violence/ trauma, anxiety, and depression, among others. I enjoy seeing the success of my clients!
