M.A., Ed.D, Licensed Psychologist – Health Service Provider, Certified Professional Counselor

Pediatric and Developmental Psychology; trauma counseling; psychological evaluation and counseling with children and adolescents.

Welcome to the Henegar Counseling Center’s informational website, and thank you for looking at my information.  I am a Licensed Psychologist, a Certified Professional Counselor, a Health Service Provider, and a Registrant with the Council for the National Register of Health Service Psychologists.

My faith informs my work as a psychologist/counselor because I am a Christian.  This means that I am comfortable incorporating faith issues in the work that I do and I find that it can be a source of strength for many individuals.  However, I am respectful of other faith traditions and do not use issues of faith and belief in any kind of coercive manner.  Please ask if you have specific concerns or questions about this.

Typically I work with children and adolescents, usually in the context of a family system.  Most referrals come from pediatricians and psychiatrists and involve concerns and questions about Autism Spectrum Disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders, Developmental Disorders, Learning Disorders, Behavioral Disorders, Mood and Anxiety Disorders, and symptoms that are the result of Trauma.  I also work with adults who have or think they have Developmental Disorders, Attention and/or Learning Disorders, mild Mood Disorders, and symptoms that are the result of Trauma.

Teaching is an activity that I also enjoy and I am on the clinical faculty here at Richmont Graduate University.  I have taught previously as an adjunct professor in the graduate schools at UT-Knoxville and at UT-Chattanooga.  I am married and have 3 adult children and 6 grandchildren, and I enjoy hiking, backpacking and photography.
