Knoxville Couples Counseling

Couples and Relationship Counseling – Therapists and Coaches in Knoxville

We’re glad you’ve taken the time to consider how couples therapy might benefit the health of your relationship. All relationships experience positive and negative seasons, ups and downs.

Yours is no different. What you’re experiencing right now is likely not what your relationship was like when you first got together, and is inevitably different from what your relationship could be like in the near future.

Perhaps you are like Maggie and Chris. After marrying right out of college, it didn’t take long for them to question if their commitment was premature. Chris wanted to travel the world and Maggie was curious about exploring life as a single, independent woman. In just three years of marriage, wanderlust led to resentment. On the day Liz and John’s last son moved away to college, they sat across from each other at dinner, terrified. After over twenty years of raising children, they hardly knew each other. Both felt overwhelmed by how to start a new phase of life together.

Or maybe your situation reminds you of Tiffany and Brian, two dedicated parents who grew up in radically different homes. Tiffany never had a curfew as a teenager and Brian was expected to wear a collared shirt to dinner. Now raising a rebellious 16 year-old daughter, they constantly bicker about how to find a common ground in their philosophies on parenting.

Are you satisfied with the state of your relationship?

Often explicit circumstances—like parenting, infidelity, trust issues, or problems getting along — drive our clients to seek professional guidance. In other cases, couples choose to see a therapist based on a sense that their relationship is missing something. Others come because they want for more intimacy and connection.

Are you willing to do the work to improve the quality of your relationship?

It’s perfectly normal to feel apprehensive or overwhelmed at the prospect of talking about the personal issues in your relationship. If you’re like some of our clients, one partner might be ready for therapy while the other has some reservations. However, years of experience in the field tell us that making a commitment to change is far more effective and fruitful when done under the guidance of a professional.

Change doesn’t happen overnight, but we believe it can be achieved sooner and with more promising results when it happens within the support system of counseling. Thriveworks therapists specialize in a variety of strategies to get to the root of your particular challenge.”

We’re ready when you are. Making an appointment is your first assignment.

Why Thriveworks Knoxville Couples Counseling?

Thriveworks licensed counselors listen to your story. We assess the needs and goals of the individuals in counseling and the needs and goals of the relationship. Our job is to offer you new tools to help navigate through your specific issues and arrive a place of understanding and resolution. Our therapists don’t tell you what decisions to make. We facilitate conversation and practices that develop a fuller understanding of your sense of self, family history, and relationship dynamics. That’s how real change happens.

Most clients who are new to counseling are surprised to learn that our therapists consider the most constructive paths for each of the “three clients” in a session: the two partners, and the relationship itself. For instance, Tiffany and Brian were loving, generous and emotionally healthy individuals. They simply wanted the best for their daughter. It was just their style of communication that needed some work. This distinction helped them see their situation in a more positive and hopeful light.

Anxiety

★★★★★
I have been taking my 7 year old grandson to see Justin. He had horrible anxiety. It saddened us to see how bad it was. He had developed tics. Justin was absolutely wonderful with him. He has overcome most of his fears and tics have went away. I would highly recommend Justin.

Cannot Recommend Enough

★★★★★
Going to Thriveworks for the past year and a half has been the most rewarding counseling experience I’ve had. Seeing Lindsey has had the single biggest impact on my emotional and mental health, especially in healing from past childhood abuse and trauma, and ongoing PTSD. Out of multiple counselors in two states, Lindsey Chandler is by far the one with whom I’ve felt the most accepted, supported, and encouraged by. I am grateful for the Thriveworks space, as it is not at all clinical nor intimidating, but entirely warn and welcoming. It is nearly a scent-free environment, which is vital for the comfort of any highly sensitive persons. I choose to drive an hour from home each visit specifically to stay loyal to a place where I finally feel safe and valued—where in the past commuting five minutes from home to work with a therapist felt like a chore and an ordeal—and I will continue to do so as I work further toward a healthier me.

Mrs. Amanda

★★★★★
My son saw “Mrs. Amanda” as he affectionately called her shortly after my marriage ended in a high conflict divorce. My son was 6 years old at the time, so it was difficult for him to process his feelings without knowing how to communicate with us. Amanda Gilliam was always there to listen and provide outlets for him to speak openly about his feelings in a way that could be understood. She is top knotch in my book and I would highly recommend her as a professional!

Justin Hall

★★★★★
I was in sessions with Justin for about a year and highly recommend him. He has a deep grasp of psychology that he is constantly refreshing and renewing, and he was able to help me a lot in understanding what was driving the emotions and feelings of myself and close family members. He was a great help.

Thriveworks Counseling Knoxville

Not the place for me

★☆☆☆☆
I have attended one session alone and a second session with my then girlfriend at her urging me to seek couples therapy, in this session I was basically felt like all the relationship issues were my fault and as I was pressured more and more about my issues I walked out of the session to collect my thoughts as I was being bombarded by both my girlfriend and my therapist. Apparently after I stepped out the therapist told my girlfriend that I was worse than an addict and she was sorry but didn’t feel I was worth attending counseling with, this resulted in the end of that relationship before We even left the office. I have other issues and have realized that I am suffering from depression due to other issues and this has added to my depression. At this point I have no intention of returning to see this counselor or any other counselor there as they have added to my problems leaving me feeling like I am not good enough. Honestly if this is how they make their clients feel then as far as I’m concerned this office shouldn’t even exist. I need to find out how I can be refunded at Least a portion of the money I’ve “wasted” on this experience and hope I can find someone else who is willing to help me work through my issues and not feel persecuted.

Makes Getting Better Easy

I can't thank Amanda Brooks enough. She's an amazing person and is an amazing place. After calling about 15 therapists and getting immediately turned away, returned my call within the hour and Amanda was hand-picked for me and my situation. I got an appointmentheduled that day. There's ALWAYS time for me andheduling/canceling is never a hassle. There's a therapist on call 24/7 and Amanda always makes time for me when I need it. The office is a lovely, calming place and I always feel comfortable and welcome. It makes getting better easy.
