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.

Hi, I'm Shonda! Do you feel overwhelmed, confused, or simply exhausted due to the demands of life and relationships with family, friends and/or colleagues? Are you engaging in negative self-talk and are very critical of yourself and others and do not have self compassion? Or do you have difficulty asserting your needs from others only to feel resentful and taken advantage of when you don't speak up? If so, I can assist you on your healing journey to improve your relationship with yourself and others. I help teens, adults and couples identify what ways of thinking/reacting are not serving them and ways to modify thinking/reacting in an effort to improve relationships with others and the self. Together, we can assess adverse life experiences that have contributed to how you respond to life in ineffective ways. We will also uncover unhealthy core beliefs that stem from adverse experiences so that we can increase your ability to understand yourself deeper and make the necessary mental/behavioral changes from this updated awareness. Finding a compatible therapist is essential, the relationship with your mental health provider is a very important factor. I am considered by many of my clients very relatable and personable as I am human first and have dealt with some of the same issues as you. I have found that I work best with clients who have good people skills and are self starters. You deserve a safe space to heal, learn, and grow. Let's begin your healing journey!

Hello and welcome to Grow Therapy! My name is Jennifer. I have both Master’s and Education Specialist degrees in Counseling, with a specialization in Couples and Family. After many years of therapy practice, I went back to school and, in 2019, graduated with a BSN in Nursing. I’ve worked as a licensed therapist in North Carolina for 17 years. I work frequently with difficult relationship dynamics whether in families or among romantic partners. I do quite a bit of work in trauma recovery, anxiety and stress reduction, resiliency-building, and identity development. Mine is a holistic, positive, supportive approach that promotes self-awareness and the interruption of unhelpful patterns of thought and behavior that lead to being "stuck". I teach mindfulness, yogic interventions and encourage gratitude and curiosity in my clients! In my spare time I enjoy hiking, dancing on my roller skates, beekeeping and chasing my dog and kids! I hope we are a good fit and look forward to connecting with you.

For over 18 years, I have been empowering individuals to live their best lives while coping with difficulties including anxiety, depression, trauma, medical concerns, and infertility. I have a variety of personal and professional experiences that contribute to the development of my empathy, understanding, and relatability. I began my career working with children who had a family member murdered. Since then I have worked with a variety of trauma victims including sexual abuse survivors, adults with child abuse histories, and domestic violence victims. I love helping individuals with trauma make peace with their trauma. I have extensive experience helping people with eating concerns and make peace with food. I am in the process of becoming a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor. I, also, have worked with many individuals who need help finding motivation to move forward. Whether you're a young adult confused about what to do next, an individual struggling with depression or grief coping with discouragement, or a person with anxiety afraid to make changes, I can assist you in making steps to move forward in your life. In addition, I have counseled many individuals struggling emotionally due to chronic medical conditions. I am a cancer survivor; therefore I am extremely passionate about helping others cope with medical conditions, chronic pain, and infertility. I work hard to be culturally competent. I love to travel and have visited (and lived) all over the world; therefore, I am familiar with working with people of difficult cultures and backgrounds I understand starting counseling can be very “nerve-racking.” I will try to make it as comfortable as possible. My counseling style is warm, patient, and client-centered. I encourage my clients to develop their own goals and areas of focus, but I am always there to help guide them. Also, I am very logical and insight-oriented. My clients often comment that I have helped them develop new understandings and perspectives. I am looking forward to hearing from you!

People can make better decisions if they have enough information and understanding about how counseling works. Here are some aspects of counseling and therapy as I perceive and practice it: Therapeutic counseling requires your active involvement including efforts to change any self-defeating thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. You will be asked to work both in and out of the therapeutic counseling sessions. I may occasionally request that you do “homework” (ok-not a formal request because life happens and inevitably it will be that you have life duties to attend to but maybe jotting things down or making notes for yourself kind of homework) by way of providing you with further reinforcement to concepts discussed in session or simply to prompt further insight and self- exploration. There are no instant, painless, or passive cures, no “magic pills”. Instead, there will be ongoing personal and spiritual growth that can occur with your conscious effort. Most likely, you will need to work on improving stress management, cognitions (e.g. beliefs and thought processes), emotional health, relationships, and your general lifestyle if counseling is to be successful. Sometimes change will be relatively easy but more often change takes much effort, time, and persistence. My hope for you is that you grow into your best self in the present and that that allows you to be your best version for your future. Therapy is about YOU and your needs. I specialize in trauma, mood, and anxiety disorders and am an LGBTQ++ ally and kink-aware professional.
