Chas Barnes, MACMHC, Pre-Licensed Professional in Chattanooga
Choosing the right therapist can be overwhelming and connecting with the counselor that will be the right fit for you is important. When you're facing anxiety, depression, relationship issues or identity questions, you want someone with you who has tools for coping; but you also want someone who is genuine and can make you feel comfortable. I will work hard to help you feel safe from our first contact. Together, we can embark on a journey of self-discovery and growth that can be one of the most meaningful endeavors of your life.
When you find yourself in relationships that aren't all they could be; struggling with behaviors that you just can't seem to quit; or you realize that there may be more to you than you have taken time to develop- It would be my honor to work with you.
An essential aspect of therapy is relationship. I love the discovery of understanding and honoring why things are the way they are- while gathering tools for mindful living today. Let's create space together where you can cultivate a life worth living. This is the first step!
