Meet Sandra Fields

Licensed Professional Counselor/Mental Health Provider 

Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider

I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Mental Health Service Provider in TN, USA with over 35 years experience working with a wide diversity of clients ranging in age from infant through geriatric. I am also certified as a mental health integrative medicine provider.  My experience includes working with clients dealing with trauma, depression, anxiety, family conflicts, life changes, adjustment disorder, anger management, life skills, career changes and enhancement, and parenting.

 

Sometimes events like transitions, trauma, loss, and adjustment to divorce or limited social support trigger difficulties. As a result, conflicts, depression, anxiety, emotional outbursts, academic decline, isolation, addiction or other risky behaviors can emerge. I support clients as they overcome these challenges. I believe in the capacity to grow, change, and move towards self-identified goals.
I believe in treating every person with respect and dignity. My approach is honest and open minded, seeing the counseling and coaching process as a collaborative one between myself and clients. This collaboration is based on the establishment of a safe and trusting relationship between counselor and client. From this foundation, we are able to explore social, emotional, and behavioral patterns so as to better understand the obstacles that are holding you back from living a full and meaningful life. I see it as my job to provide you with both support and challenge as you engage in the task of facing and addressing those obstacles.


My approach to both psychotherapy and coaching is integrative and focuses on the relationship between myself and my clients, incorporating meditation/mindfulness practices, self-acceptance, development of coping skills, and repairing relationships. I draw from many approaches, including evidence-based practices such as person-centered therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Child-parent psychotherapy. Over the years, I have found a therapeutic style that feels genuine and organic for me. Clients typically appreciate my genuine compassion, authenticity, safety, and humor. 


Counseling and coaching take courage and I'm so glad you're here!

Meet Casey Jenkins,

M.Ed, Licensed Professional Counselor, NBCC

I am from East Tennessee and have been practicing mental health counseling for over a decade. I enjoy accompanying clients through transformations emotionally, physically and mentally.

 

I began an interest in counseling through my undergraduate work with refugee camps as I worked with those who had experienced significant trauma from early adolescence. My experiences taught me the gift clients have to be open and honest while being brave enough to self-advocate. I continued to specialize in trauma and adolescent development. I have since studied marital and relationship counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness and body scoring interventions along several other interventions and treatments.

My Approach in counseling is aimed at aligning with the Client’s desire and goals. I believe we, as wonderful human beings, know what we want, but often lack the tools to achieve our own goals. Through therapy and behavior modifications I believe we can allow all things to strengthen us.
