Healing Bonds Counseling Services
Jennifer Weller, LMFT
Choosing a therapist is a very personal decision, so let me tell you about myself. I graduated from Lee University’s Marriage and Family Therapy program in May 2020 and am fully licensed through the State of Tennessee.
I have been married to my husband for 15 years and have four beautiful children. With my children starting families of their own, I cherish the time we have together as a family. In my free time, my husband and I love to travel and look forward to future adventures together.
I believe that every individual has the wisdom to know how to heal themselves and the courage to face life's challenges and grow from them. It is my job, as a therapist, to help you connect with this innate wisdom and courage. In therapy, I work to create a space where you can feel safe, understood, and cared for. Within this space, we will explore your current difficulties and challenges. We will address these challenges in ways that fit you and that build upon your unique strengths and personality.
As my client, I view you as the expert on your life. I do not view myself as the “know it all” in the room. I have some valuable information that my training has afforded me, but your life experiences are just as valuable to the work we will do together. I am straight forward, honest and believe we are a team in this process.
Bailey Spradling, MS Resident Child/Adolescent Therapist
I understand the exhaustion that can come from feeling like you’ve tried everything. Whether you are a young adult looking for services for yourself, or a parent seeking services for your child, I would love to join you in your journey to try and trust the therapeutic process.
I am passionate about working with children and adolescents ages 3-18 to help navigate trauma, family conflict and other life events that lead to big feelings and behaviors. I believe in the power of relationships and growth encouraged by the safety of the therapeutic relationship.
Through child-centered play and art activities, I provide my clients with a space to process and explore in order to make sense of their world. I also utilize evidence-based treatment modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness practices, and play-based interventions. Through my online scheduling, you are able to get started whenever you are ready.
Patrick Nelson, MS Resident Intern
Chattanooga Office Therapists
Life can be overwhelming, and it is easy to feel lost or alone. Maybe you feel stuck or trapped with whatever situation you find yourself in now. You may not know what your next steps are, but you know you want things to be different. The mountain that you want to climb is right there, but taking those first steps seems terrifying. I want you to know that there is hope. That your current struggles do not have to be part of your future reality. I’m passionate about helping individuals gain insight into themselves in their patterns of behavior, which helps them develop new coping skills and strategies to navigate life's challenges.
I am aware that worldview is important, and though I am a Christian, I will always strive to work from the values/worldview of my clients. My goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment where clients can share their experiences without fear of judgment.
I understand the journey to healing is unique to each individual, and I strive to equip my clients with the tools to help them make sense of their struggles and empower them to overcome their adversities. If you’re struggling and desire change, I would love to be invited on your mental health journey with you. Just know that you do not have to do this alone.
