Dr. Susan E Hickman

Psychologist , PhD , PsyD

(423) 453-4761
My focus is on helping clients develop Mental Fitness skills. I consider most "disorders" to arise from accumulated skill deficits across time. Thus, I am far less interested in defining disorders and far more interested in helping clients obtain the needed skills for success. To this end, I offer online, skills-based classes in conjunction with Transformational Coaching through the Mental Fitness Institute. Unlike traditional psychotherapy, coaching sessions are conducted telephonically or online. If you are ready to learn the skills needed to fully embrace your potential and construct the life you desire, then come join the Mental Fitness Revolution!
For those seeking traditional psychotherapy, I still offer some limited hours through the Transformation Lighthouse Counseling Center. You may call this office directly at 423-499-9335 to request an appointment with me. However, please be aware that even in psychotherapy, I focus primarily on skill development for success.
You may view all classes, coaching and other services available at: http://MentalFitnessInstitute.com (website should be live by April 1, 2015). Until then, visit: http://www.DrSusanHickman.com.

MFIT 301/401: Mental Mastery 360/Target Classes

For clients who need to expand their positive sphere of influence, we recommend the 360 Class, which includes foundational interpersonal and intrapersonal skills but introduces advanced techniques to support professional advancement and financial success. Additionally, with a 360 view of functioning, we promote higher performance and confidence levels by teaching clients to incorporate positive and negative feedback with ease. In our Target Classes, we drill down into skills needed for very specific areas (e.g., self-care, mood mastery, entrepreneurial success, relationship savvy, negotiation and conflict resolution skills, anxiety busters, coping in character, etc.).

MFIT 101: Mental Mastery Foundations Class

This class is designed to provide an overview and antidote to skill deficits most commonly found in individuals with mood issues, anxiety, interpersonal problems, addictions, career or relationship failures or a variety of other "disorders." One goal of the class is to increase insight and awareness regarding skill deficits and their negative life impact. More importantly, we combine the coursework (live online webinars) with Transformational Coaching in which clients are coached in small groups to further foster skill development and problem-solve interfering issues. For continued skill development, clients next move into MFIT 201: Mental Mastery Applications Class.
