Individual, Couples and
Family Therapy in Kingsport, TN

Bringing meaningful
change into people’s lives…

Everyone has times in their life when it is difficult to work through things on your own. The death of a loved one, relationship issues, stress, depression, anxiety, trauma and life transitions are a few of the common experiences that affect many people at different times in their lives. Many times, we need someone to help us sort through these changes in our lives. Change is difficult. But by having someone to walk us through the process of change and challenge us to approach our problems differently, we can grow, succeed and be happy.
