Yulanda Taylor LMSW
Many times, when we deal with physical symptoms associated with an illness we will go to a doctor or self-medicate with over-the-counter medications. Sometimes we associate symptoms of stress with an illness that needs to be medicated. Unfortunately, those muscle tensions, sweaty palms, accelerated heart beats will be temporarily suppressed with medication only. Therapy helps you navigate the stressors of life and provides immediate relief, especially when engaged in the process.
I am a licensed master-level social worker with 7 years of experience supporting adults with reducing the pains associated with life.
Allow me to help you get to the root cause of your mental symptoms by providing 1:1 support to help address past traumas, financial difficulties, anxiety, depression, or spiritual conflicts or improve relationship with God. I have weekend and evening availability to support you with your healing journey! Schedule a consultation with me at 901-554-5202.
Giavante Douglas, LMSW, LSSW
Life after a pandemic looks pretty abnormal. I understand that navigating life hardships and your healing journey alone can be overwhelming and unfold many uncertainties and self-doubt. For many of us, it can become challenging to process different stressors when we are not emotionally balanced. I commend you for taking the first step to emotional equilibrium, and it would be a privilege to support you with your mental health and life goals.
I specialize in working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, and/or general life transitions. I am trained to utilize Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which assists individuals with understanding trauma and shifting their paradigm.
To learn more about how I could best serve you, please reach out for a consultation. To schedule a consultation, contact Giavante at 901-459-5773.
Mrs. Bewindi Jackson, Clinical Director
I help professionals who are dealing with unresolved emotional conflicts such as depression, anxiety, grief, stress,etc live freely by equipping them with tools to renew their mindsets. I love to encourage and empower my clients and when they apply the tools, they are able to show up for themselves and be their best selves in all arenas of their lives. Additionally, I also provide Christ-Centered Counseling to whom it applies and for those who request.
With over 15 years of clinical experiences, I am driven and fueled by my professional and personal values including but not limited to Faith, Freedom, Purpose, Service, Encouragement and Inspiration. I am so honored to be in this space and I know that whether I am providing therapy, coaching or speaking to an audience or hosting my podcast, 'Empowered to Empower You', which can be found on spotify, podbean, itunes, google, etc, I am convinced that people are definitely encouraged, inspired and empowered. I am also an author of two published books, Empowerment for You: Encouragement for your Spiritual and Emotional Wellness and Empowered to Empower You Reflection Workbook (available on Amazon). Schedule a meeting with me at 901.319.9677.

When she stumbled upon Against All Odds Professional Counseling Services, she was blessed to be given the opportunity. Since then, she has worked diligently with the therapist to ensure that each client receives the counseling they desire.
