Ph.D., Licensed Professional Counselor - Mental Health Service Provider, Licensed Marital and Family Therapist

Lorrie Slater, Director

Marriage and family counseling, divorce recovery and blending families, anxiety, depression, and difficult life transitions.

Life can become overwhelming, I consider it a privilege to walk through that part of your journey with you. Difficult life transitions, family distress and conflict, abuse, divorce, anxiety, depression, as well as child and adolescent behavioral concerns, can leave you feeling helpless. I am honored to help you find your strength to cope in times of pain and suffering.

My training as a marriage and family therapist with a specialization in child and adolescent informs my systemic approach to counseling. Although I utilize cognitive behavioral and solution focused techniques, I realize each person has an incredibly unique story, therefore an interpersonal therapeutic approach is foundational to each session.

I also serve as an associate professor at Richmont Graduate University. Teaching informs my clinical work as I am continually studying and learning about best practices for my clients. I am also a member of the Richmont Global Traumatology team and as such, I am acutely aware of the impact of global trauma has on local individuals.

M.A., Licensed Professional Counselor - Mental Health Service Provider

Reese Armstrong

Individual adults, adolescents, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), exposure and response prevention, spiritual issues, relationship issues, trauma recovery, and EDMR.

I have been in your shoes. I remember being in the place of reaching out beyond my friends and family to navigate through a challenging season of life. It was a hard decision to contact a counselor, but that choice led to my own personal healing and growth. As you take this first, courageous step to begin your own journey towards wholeness, I want you to know that I would be honored to walk with you along this path.

Whether it is a habit you are trying to quit, a past experience that continues to bother you, a conflict in a relationship that never seems to resolve, or crippling anxiety and depression, I believe we all have complex and unique stories that require thoughtful and individualized care. My goal as a counselor is to help individuals rewrite their own stories.


Cary Bayless

Trauma, personality disorders, grief, suicidal & homicidal ideation, compassion fatigue, behavioral & communication issues, step-down from inpatient care.

You are worthy and enough.

The phrase above can feel like an unreachable mindset, I know. Trauma, abuse, neglect, grief, and the weight of caring for others more than yourself can make that phrase feel hollow. Anxiety, depression, flashbacks, nightmares, and isolation are truly exhausting.

If you are reading this, I want you to know you are not alone and you’ve already taken the only step you have to on your own: you’ve done the hard work of reaching out. If you have been in therapy before or this is your first time, I will be honored to walk beside you towards health and connection. I believe your story deserves to be listened to with kind attention. We can stand together in the tension of pain and hope.

I look forward to meeting you.

Counselor Intern

Kenley Berry

Individual Adults ages 25 and up—Depression, Anxiety, Life Transitions, Grief, Spirituality, Body Image, Self-esteem and Relationship Issues

I believe that all parts of you are worthy of being loved. Too often the chaos of the world around us fractures the world within us. My approach to therapy explores how experiences, relationships, and patterns influence our past and current well-being. My goal as a counselor is to come alongside your journey and empower each step towards a path of healing, growth, and redemption through a collaborative process where you set the pace. Better is possible and it will be my honor to accompany you on your journey.

Pearl Brown

Individual adults and adolescents beginning at age 15: anxiety & depression, trauma, grief & loss, divorce, sexual issues, relationship issues, and low self-esteem. Lead female trauma survivors groups. Trained in EMDR.

My many years of working as a nurse have increased my ability to connect with clients in the midst of pain and uncertainty. It is an honor to work with those who are hurting and to inspire hope and healing along the journey. I strive to collaborate with my clients, using the therapeutic relationship to build self-compassion, discover strengths, and reduce shame. According to Scripture, the LORD is near to the brokenhearted and able to redeem brokenness, making beauty out of ashes and joy out of mourning – Isaiah 61.

In my leisure time I enjoy traveling, hiking, reading, serving in my church, growing plants, decorating my home, and spending time with friends and family (especially my vibrant grandchildren.)

Counselor Intern

Caitlin Eaton

Children & Adolescents—Anxiety, Depression, Trauma Recovery, Emotional Dysregulation, and Difficult Life Transitions

Struggles are inevitable, and I am committed to leaning into those and supporting you toward holistic healing through integrating the mind, body, and soul. I genuinely believe we are created to walk alongside one another through the ins and outs of life, and my goal is to not only support you through your process of healing but also to advocate on your behalf.

I cannot emphasize it enough, but you are not alone. I want to assist you in identifying your strengths and areas of future growth because life is a continual process of learning and developing into who you were created to be. I know how easy it is to feel stuck with a loss of hope, but in my experience, I have learned that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Yes, things can be scary and unimaginably difficult, but I am here to bear your anxiety, grief, pain, and anger with you. The therapeutic process and relationship are collaborative, and I want to work with you, not for you.

Counselor Intern

Tori Ingram

Individuals 16 and Up and Couples—Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Grief and Loss

Oftentimes we go through life feeling unheard and our pain unacknowledged. It can be exhausting to find ourselves with no one to listen to what we are going through. I want to create a space where you can bring everything life has thrown at you. I want you to know that you are not alone and are incredibly brave for taking this step. I approach therapy by looking at family dynamics and how those dynamics impact our current relationships. I utilize techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy along with a focus on the therapeutic relationship to help facilitate change.

M.A., Licensed Professional Counselor - Mental Health Service Provider

Katherine Jonas

Individual, children, adolescents, and adult therapy; family therapy; clinical, relational, and developmental issues.

As a Christian; my faith is an influence in my personal life and worldview. At the heart of counseling is a connection between the counselor and the client, so it is important for you to find someone you feel comfortable sitting with and telling your story.

I grew up in Bluefield, WV, went to college in Bristol, TN and have lived a few places since. My first job was teaching 6th grade at Hilton Head Christian Academy, living in Hilton Head, SC for 2 years. Since then I have also lived in Columbia, SC, Signal Mountain, TN, and Murfreesboro, TN. Chattanooga has been home now for almost 10 years, and what a great place to live! I am interested in many outside activities like gardening/working in the yard, hiking, and exploring new places. When weather keeps me inside I like to read, and have been challenging myself to develop my skills in the kitchen. Being creative is an important expression to me, so I enjoy all kinds of crafting, everything from making jewelry to scrapbooking.

A recent professional development and has been the privilege to be accepted as a MFLC (Military Family Life Consultant) the past two years. I have had two different opportunities to work on a military base in Germany as a support and encouragement to military and their families. These experiences have allowed me insight and understanding to military life and the stress of living overseas.

In the context of the therapeutic relationship, God can use the counselor to be a support, an encourager, a guide, at times someone who can teach skills, and educate. When clients share that commitment, explicit reference to their Christian faith will be a part of treatment and use of spiritual interventions incorporated, especially as these also have empirical support. My hope is to help my client develop insight, skills, and empower them to make changes!


Jerelyn Lee

Life transitions, grief, trauma, sexual/gender identity, spirituality (specifically involving church hurt, spiritual trauma, deconstruction, and reconstruction of faith)

I am convinced that there is incredible power and healing in experiencing genuine, authentic relationships. My role is to come alongside you and help shed light on how your past relationships and experiences have informed the way you currently relate to yourself, to others, and to the world. I utilize a holistic approach and, with an extensive background in fitness and spiritual formation, I am comfortable incorporating all facets of health and well being (emotional, physical, and spiritual) as much as you see fit. I enjoy working with adults of all life stages and backgrounds and am committed to offering a safe and welcoming space exactly as you are, while I empower you in your resilience and partner with you in your journey of healing.


Katherine Gibson

Individual adults and adolescents, Chronic Illness, Anxiety, Depression, Grief and loss, Women’s Issues, Life Adjustments and Transitions, Spiritual Issues, Trauma

Life can take us to places that we never imagined and leave us wondering how to move forward and take the next step towards healing. I want to come alongside you and take that next step with you, or just sit with you in the dark until you can see the light again. I believe that therapy should be collaborative and relational as we work together to help you move from surviving to thriving. I take a holistic approach as we work together to integrate body, mind, and spirit.


Megan Grant, Assistant Director

Addictions-adult and adolescent, co-occurring mental illness/personality disorder with addiction, transitional life periods, anxiety, depression

I want to hear your story. A basic human need, that oftentimes is neglected, is the need to be heard. Many of us grew up learning to “suck it up,” and “move on.” We learned ways to repress our emotions. Our stories became limited by the rule that our feelings don’t matter unless they are happy or “good.” Our feelings find outlets in various ways including self-harm, substance abuse and unhealthy relationships. I want to come alongside you and support your move towards health. Healthy looks different for everyone. For you, that might mean an increase in emotional awareness. For others, that may mean a move towards abstinence from drugs and alcohol. I view counseling and recovery as a readjustment period. You already possess a variety of strengths. I am here to help you identify and utilize those strengths. I believe in the power of a collaborative therapeutic relationship. All of us are wonderfully made and inherently worthy of a fulfilled life. I attended graduate school at Richmont University and have a bachelor’s in psychology from UTC. I trained and worked in a residential facility focused on substance use and co-occurring disorders. I utilize a psychodynamic approach, a focus on the relationship, with solution-focused techniques.


Callie Kell

Individual children, adults, and adolescents: child-parent relationship, trauma, depression, anxiety, addiction and life transitions, level 1 Gottman

Sometimes we need a space to explore what we are feeling on the inside. One of the beautiful things about therapy is that it is a space where someone else can hold compassion and hope for you until you are able to hold it for yourself. I believe that you are the expert of your own experience and that you already possess all the tools and resources necessary for healing. I am here to create a safe space and provide guidance as you work to uncover and move through the process. I work out of a combination of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), narrative therapy, and emotion-focused therapy (EFT). I also have advanced training in play therapy, sand tray therapy, and child-parent relationship training. With this approach, the goal is to provide a place to tell your story while identifying the roadblocks that distort perspectives and lead to negative emotions and maladaptive behaviors.

Emotions are not only an essential part of our daily lives, but they also contribute to our identities, helping us to understand who we are and share who we are with others. By working to identify emotions, I hope that we can bring about relational development, emotional awareness, self-regulation, acknowledging and understanding the impact of past traumas, and healing attachments.

I have a passion for supporting people of all ages in working through traumatic life experiences, depression, anxiety, addiction, or other life-altering transitions. I love what I do, and I can only hope that comes through in the care I provide.

Counselor Intern

Joshua King

Individuals 16 and up-Anger, Depression, Grief, Self Esteem, Boundaries and Men’s Issues

Three steps forward and two steps back is still one step in the right direction. If you are looking for a therapist, then in some way or another your life is not going how you planned. You may feel overwhelmed by the weight of your current situation, or you may have carried the weight so long that it has left you feeling empty. No matter how you might have coped with the weight of what you have endured, you deserve to be treated with respect. I value developing an environment in which you feel safe enough to explore and process your experiences. I empathize with the difficulty of trusting another person to approach your most vulnerable experiences without judgment. I believe healing begins in an environment where you feel heard, your feelings are validated, and your story is truly understood. My approach to therapy is to empower individuals to accept what they can’t change and to provide the skills/tools to change what they can. I am comfortable with the highs and lows of the human experience. I have over five years of experience in the mental health field and am still astonished by the resilience of the individuals I have the honor to sit with.

Ph.D., Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Beth Lamberson

Offering individual therapy via telehealth for adolescents and adults; family therapy; couples and marriage therapy, abuse and trauma; spiritual issues, and EMDR Therapy. Licensed in Tennessee, Georgia, Michigan, and Alabama.

Sometimes life hits us straight on. At other times life slowly chips away at our sense of self and well-being through the gradual damage of accumulated pain. As a therapist, one of my deepest desires is to walk with others as they seek to find not just the absence of pain but to experience joy and peace. As a Christian, my faith is core to my identity. It also provides a basis for those who desire to include faith issues in their counseling experience. At the same time, I am respectful of other faith traditions and am committed to working within the worldview of those I see.

I have both secular and Christian training with Ph.D. in Learning and Leadership from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, a master’s in social work from the University of Tennessee, and a bachelor’s degree from Bryan College. It is essential to be sensitive to the needs of each person and approach therapy from an integrative standpoint, as well as, weaving together evidence-based approaches. I am trained in Gottman Couples Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and EMDR Therapy. Since 2009, I have had the privilege of facilitating and co-facilitating over 150 women in small closed group sessions as they completed the Walking Worthy Journey.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, outdoor activities, and gardening, but my greatest joy is spending time with my husband, adult children, and eight grandchildren.


Lee Maclellan

Children and Adolescents, Trauma Therapy, Substance Abuse Treatment, Anxiety, and Depression 

We all have a story, and a basic human need is a desire for our story to be heard. I want to hear your story. Life is wonderful but part of living life means overcoming the difficulties of our past or the anxieties of our future. Sometimes these challenges can be overwhelming, but I believe with healthy support, hard work, and guidance, you can overcome these obstacles. I believe that therapy can provide the space for individuals going through challenging times to process, learn and foster healing in their lives. Let’s navigate this together. 

I utilize a psychodynamic approach, a focus on the relationship, with solution-focused techniques. I am trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and often incorporate the interventions into practice.

Counselor Intern

Priscilla Martin

Children and Adolescents ages 3-19—Trauma, Grief, Depression, Anxiety, Child and Adolescent Behavioral Issues, and Life Transitions

Life can be heavy especially if you try to carry it all at once and on your own. Sometimes it can be hard to ask for help or admit that something is wrong. Often, it can feel like you are alone, not enough, and no one is truly listening to you. It is brave to decide and take the steps towards receiving the help you need. My goal is to create a safe space where you feel seen, heard and cared for deeply.

I am passionate about working with children and adolescents ages 3-19 and I use a Child-Centered Play Therapy approach. When working with teenagers, college students, and adults, I utilize an integrative, Person-Centered approach along with treatment modalities such as Adlerian Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. My goal for therapy is to join you in your journey and provide space to process and collaborate together.

I believe that each person has a story to share and can benefit from doing life together, especially during challenging times. I desire a place for clients to explore their thoughts, feelings, and the world around them in a relational way. I work towards healing and wholeness through a resilient, graceful, compassionate, and non-judgmental stance.

Life can be messy, frustrating, and too much sometimes. I believe we’re not meant to walk through it alone. Thank you for bravely taking the first vulnerable steps into healing. I consider it a sacred space to share in your pain, hurt, depression, anxiety, loneliness, shame, transition, trauma, grief, or confusion. My goals are to walk into the worst with you, help you recognize yourself, uncover shame, give you practical tools, and ultimately encourage hope in your life.

Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist

Amy Perkins

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Birmingham-Southern College in Birmingham, AL. I attended the University of Georgia and earned my Masters degree in Professional Counseling and also my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology. My research focused on the effects of trauma in adolescents who are involved in the juvenile justice system. I am licensed to practice psychology in Tennessee, and a member of the American Psychological Association.

I have been working as a therapist for over 10 years. My expertise is in working with adolescents, facilitating family therapy, trauma therapy, and substance abuse treatment.
My approach to psychotherapy is an integration of science and practice: my work with clients is grounded and supported by current research and sustained by my enthusiasm for learning and knowledge.

My counseling style is collaborative and relational. I believe that a trusting and affirming relationship is the foundation of effective psychotherapy. It is my goal to engage in therapy with a warm, enthusiastic, non-judgmental, and honest approach.


Meredith Rivera

Sexual trauma, sexuality identity, gender identity, personality disorders, anxiety, depression

Every person has a unique experience and story that is worthy to be heard. I work with clients to help them find inner congruence and healing through a collaborative therapeutic relationship specific to each person’s needs. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, sexual dysfunction, sexual trauma, PTSD, sexuality and gender exploration. I consider it an honor to be allowed into another person’s story and remind them that they are not alone as they seek healing. Taking the first step towards pursuing therapy can be overwhelming and intimidating but I hope to create a welcoming and inviting environment for you and me to navigate your healing together. Through the therapeutic relationship, we can work towards your goals and remind you of how far you’ve come. I look forward to meeting you.


Nicole Rogers

Individual therapy–life transitions, women’s issues, grief, depression, anxiety, postpartum depression, trauma, and abuse.

I believe that everyone needs a safe space to be heard, to share their pain, to explore, to heal, and to grow. We were created for connection, and healing happens in relationship. It is a privilege to listen to and hold each client’s story with great care and hope. I use a client-centered approach as the therapeutic relationship is one where clients should be met with acceptance, empathy and unconditional positive regard. I also use cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavioral therapy techniques to help identify unhealthy patterns and to practice more effective skills that lead to a healthier life. I know that it can be intimidating to take the first step to begin counseling, but you are welcome here just as you are.

M.S., Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Katelyn Schroeder

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Are your relationships in need? Whether it’s a romantic, parent-child, or working relationship, I am confident we can identify and relieve the pressures from anxiety, trauma, conflict, communication, and injury. What about your relationship with yourself? How can you find more love, safety, and healthy coping? You are an individual with past and present experiences that can influence your relationships. The stress of life weighs heavy on the most sacred connections you have with yourself and others. Come and gain the support and tools you need to thrive!

I value an integrated approach to therapy primarily based in Systems Theory, Attachment Theory, & Emotionally Focused Therapy. The integration of these treatment theories understands each client has a whole with thoughts, feelings, and relationships. That’s where we begin. I utilize various tools from other orientations, such as CBT, SFT, and Experiential.

The relationship between therapist and client is the most meaningful support for achieving change and finding the relief you seek. I am honored you’re considering my practice as a place for your hard work.

M.A., Licensed Professional Counselor - Mental Health Service Provider

Kevin Thompson

Individual adults and couples; relationship distress, anger issues, male survivors of childhood sexual abuse, physical abuse, or psychological abuse, depression, anxiety, trauma recovery, grief and loss

It has been said that through relationships we are wounded and by relationships we are healed. Having myself experienced the power of healing relationships, it is my aim as a counselor to foster a collaborative, healing relationship that provides safety for healing and growth. Many factors affect a person’s ability to thrive as an individual and in relationships, including the residual effects of loss and what has been done to a person, patterns of relating learned throughout life, internalized beliefs about oneself and the world, and relational and spiritual disconnection.

In my work with clients, I strive to create a relationally safe environment that fosters self-exploration, the ability to put thoughts and feelings into words, and to gain insight. I also incorporate trauma awareness into treatment. This specifically means that I help clients in the process of stabilizing the effects of trauma in one’s life as well as in one’s nervous system and body.

When working with couples, I see the relationship as an adult attachment relationship. Often what causes ongoing distress with couples is that their respective attachment fears and insecurities are activated in such a way in the relationship that a negative reactive cycle is created. The negative cycle seems to take over the relationship and prevent the couple from experiencing safety and bonding. I used Emotionally Focused Therapy to help couples stop the negative cycle and learn new, connecting ways of relating to themselves and each other.

I integrate Christian spirituality into my practice when this is meaningful to my clients. Research shows that outcomes in treatment are improved when a person’s faith is incorporated. For me, the foundation of Christian counseling is that each client is loved with incomprehensible love and has been bought with an immeasurable price.
