Andrea Clapp, LPC – Licensed Professional Counselor
I am a private practice licensed professional counselor serving clients in and around Maryville, Tennessee. As your counselor, it is my priority to create a therapeutic atmosphere that promotes growth and positive change, for you. I look forward to working with you to addresses your challenges and realize your goals. Counseling is a process that can move you toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the life you desire.
Before starting my journey in private practice three years ago I worked for 10 years as a Specialized Crisis Counselor working directly with families and children during crisis situations.
I use a variety of approaches to address my clients unique needs. Treatment plans will utilize a tailored plan and approach that includes tools to help sustain the growth experienced in counseling.
Additionally, there is a growing body of research that supports the practice of self-compassion and mindfulness in psychotherapy. Neuroscience research reveals individuals that practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is my honor and mission to help my clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential individually and in their relationships.
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
