Peggy Allbritten, MS
*accepting new clients, sliding scale available*
My approach to therapy is rooted in connection and safety. I believe in the importance of the therapeutic relationship for healing and growth, and I strive to create a safe, accepting space for each of my clients.
I approach therapy from a trauma-informed, psychodynamic perspective, exploring with clients
how past experiences, attachment, and trauma have impacted them. I believe in the importance of acknowledging the whole self in the healing process, and I often incorporate ideas from Somatic Experiencing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) into counseling. I am also trained in playtherapy and expressive arts, and I practice from an Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size (HAES) framework.
My areas of focus include clients who struggle with anxiety, trauma, eating disorders/disordered eating, poor body image, relationship distress, and parenting concerns. I value the uniqueness of each individual and enjoy working with kids, teens, and adults.
I completed my Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a specialization in Playtherapy and Expressive Arts at Lipscomb University. I am currently working towards licensure as an LPC-MHSP in Tennessee under the supervision of Kasie Lee, PhD, LPC-MHSP, NCC, RPT-S.
I would love to connect with you to see if we are a good fit!
