MEET THE TEAM

Mrs. Emily Anderson 

Emily treasures her God-designed gift to promote simple, practical, eclectic, and transformative narratives and practices that empower people to live out their God-given purpose.

In therapy, Emily creates space for her clients to understand and write their unique story. Life can be complicated and messy, kind of like a puzzle-Emily loves a good puzzle. Emily knows that depression and anxiety, negative thought patterns, fear, and negative relationships need to be laid on the table, sorted through, and connected until the real picture (the real you) comes into full view. Though we cannot change our past, we can realize how it has affected us. Emily is firm in her knowledge that we can adopt a new perspective and be intentional about our present and future.

Emily is a trained social worker who values peace, purpose, perspective, and passion. She wears many hats as a woman, wife of a Marine Corp veteran, and a mom by way of adoption. Emily believes in the promotion of total health-including physical and mental-and the power of incremental behavioral change. Schedule a consultation with Emily at 901-441-9421.

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.

Christie Walker LMSW

Do you experience day-to-day anxiety and stress? Do you sometimes feel nothing is going right, and you no longer enjoy the things you used to? Do you feel unsure of who you are, feel lost or alone? Are you experiencing sadness or anger from past negative experiences? Sometimes acknowledging the need for help can be difficult because people often associate vulnerability with being weak. I am here to tell you that recognizing your need for help takes bravery and self-awareness. This is your first step towards making a positive change for yourself!

I serve adults, male and female, by introducing tools that will inspire the individual to develop a better outlook on life, decrease stressors, and become more resilient to life's challenges. To assist with this change, I provide motivational interviewing techniques, cognitive behavioral therapy, and solution focused therapy. I also provide a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere which allows my clients to be honest and feel at ease about expressing themselves. I am a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) in the State of Tennessee.

I truly believe our mental health wellness should be a priority and you do not have to be alone in this journey. Working on our mental health is an on-going process that is the foundation to live thriving lives. I thank you for believing in me and allowing me to assist and empower you through your journey of healing. Schedule a consultation with Christie at 901-460-2594.

Yulanda Taylor LMSW

I focus on assisting individuals with navigating through challenges and exploring solutions that will lead to restoration and elevation. I am a wife and a mother of three. I have one child on the autism spectrum. We have overcome many challenges dealing with his unique abilities.

I believe in Jesus along with the power of prayer. I'm driven to help people who believes that there is something out there that bigger than themselves.

Do you feel like you have to wear a mask and hide your true self? Are you ready to take the masks off? If this is you let me help you peel back the layers of yourself that you are masking. Let's denounce these negative thought patterns that make you hide who you are. Let's affirm the promises of God and build on restoring love, joy, peace, and hope. Do you need someone to pray for you and pray with you? Matthew 18:20 tells us where two or more gather He will be amongst us. I am passionate about empowering individuals to rediscover their best selves. This means getting uncomfortable with dysfunction. Never stop growing into a better you financially, mentally, and spiritually. I create a safe space to assist with goal-driven solutions. If you need assistance with where to start, I can help. Always keep in mind that change starts with YOU. Numbers 6:24-26 CSB "May the LORD bless you and protect you; may the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; may the LORD look with favor on you and give you peace" In Jesus name I pray this over whoever is reading and receiving Amen.

Evelyn Fatokun

You struggle because you feel no one understands you. You feel lost, lonely, and different. "Remember what sets you apart can sometimes feel like a burden, and it's not. And a lot of the time, it's what makes you great." -Emma Stone.

I am originally from Nigeria, West Africa. I include biblical examples in the form of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy in helping my clients to attain their goals and have self-love and appreciate who they are. I believe working towards self-love will help my client focus on acceptance, comfortability, and self-respect. In addition to self-love, and addressing self-esteem, I intend to help others learn to have more compassion towards themselves and learn more about who they are.

I believe that you are unique and the Lord cares about you and has amazing plans for you according to Jeremiah 29:11 and 1:5. I strive to provide the highest quality of holistic, person-centered therapeutic services to adults, couples, and families while creating a non-judgmental environment to gain support, share experiences, and enhance relationships.

I am here to work alongside you in your journey of self-actualization. Schedule a consultation with Evelyn at 901-676-6747
