Barbara Mooney, LCSW, CDWF, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Sevierville
Barbara Mooney is not currently accepting new clients.
Finding the right therapist for YOU and the therapeutic relationship is one of the most important factors associated with positive therapy results. I place primary importance on the therapy relationship and I join you on your journey of self discovery and healing, providing an atmosphere of safety, warmth and understanding, . While I have a wealth of professional and personal knowledge and expertise in individual and family recovery from substance misuse, addictions/compulsive behaviors and life patterns that prevent authentic living, I do not approach the relationship as an "expert" but rather as a supportive guide on the journey.
Specialty areas: 1. Addiction Recovery: Intervention, individual/family recovery, Co-occuring disorders (depression, anxiety, personality disorder, trauma), Stage II (emotional) recovery. 2. Child/Adolescent: Birth to Young adult, prenatal, postpartum concerns, development, attachment, divorce, self esteem, anxiety, depression, separation/individuation/"launching," parenting issues, family therapy. 3. Personal growth: Mindfulness/meditation/stress reduction, resilience, brain plasticity.
I have expertise in many approaches such as family systems, DBT, CBT, psychodynamic, and Schema. I draw from them based on needs. Most recently I have completed training in the innovative work of Brene' Brown and The Daring Way (TM). Please contact me to learn more and determine if we might have a fit.
