Cadey Phipps, LMFTLicensed Marriage and Family Therapist
ME AS A PERSON
I am human, I am real, and I love what I do. When I’m not working, you can find me spending time with my husband and our cats, Khaleesi and Drogo (GOT fans?); reading; creating music; or eating at a new restaurant. I am a huge proponent of health at every size and intuitive eating and I love finding new ways to move my body, because I believe that maintaining a happy body helps maintain a healthy mind. I am so excited to work with you, wherever you are in your life journey!
MY THERAPEUTIC APPROACH IS:
I am passionate about helping women and couples connect to their inner wisdom in order to connect fully with others. I’m here to listen without judgement and help you find healing in order to live your most authentic life.
As a therapist I integrate a variety of evidence-based models, skills, training, and techniques to best meet the needs of each client individually. I focus largely on the mind-body connection and use interventions that aim to create change; relieving physical and emotional symptoms. For those interested in the technical terms, I primarily integrate Mindfulness skills, Bowenian ideology, Gottman methods, Brainspotting, Internal Family Systems influences, and function with a mindset inspired by the work of Esther Perel.
As a systemically-trained therapist I know that there are a lot of factors at play when it comes to your current situation. Thus I will explore all possible avenues that may be contributing to a presenting problem. My goal is to help you better understand your past for purposes of dealing with the “now” and preparing for your future.
I am a Licensed Marital and Family therapist – TN license number 1348. I received my Bachelors of Science in Psychology and Gender Studies from Centre College and my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Lipscomb University. I am certified in PREPARE/ENRICH, a parenting, premarital, and marital counseling and assessment program. I have completed Level 1 Training in Gottman Couples Therapy, which has provided me with countless research-backed tools for working with couples. I have completed Phase One of Brainspotting training, which is an amazing tool that can help us dig into trauma and go beyond the neocortex into the part of the brain that emotion and the unconscious live. I have also completed training through the Conflict Resolution Center at Lipscomb University and am a Rule 31 eligible Civil and Family Mediator. I am constantly training, learning and working to be the very best helper that I can be.
Whoever you are, whoever and however you love, I promise to provide quality professional services to persons without discrimination on the basis of race, age, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, disability, gender, health status, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or relationship status. Come just as you are.
