How do you know if therapy is right for you? Are you chronically sad? Are you immobilized by anxiety? Are you at the whim of daily mood swings? Do you find yourself worrying excessively? Anyone suffering from these symptoms or any other form of psychological distress is a good candidate for therapy. Psychotherapy can help address depression, nervousness, frustration and anger, relationship issues and simply feeling overwhelmed with life. Any issue causing you unhappiness is fair game for counseling and I would be happy to discuss any concerns with you.

My name is Dr. Eric Manley and I am a Licensed Counseling Psychologist in the state of Tennessee with over 15 years of experience. I provide psychotherapy and counseling to individuals, couples, and groups. I have been trained as a generalist and can work with a wide range of mental health concerns, including but not limited to: depression, anxiety, stress management, family and couples concerns, anger, sexuality, trauma and substance abuse.

I also offer specialty areas. I have comprehensive training and experience in working with the unique concerns of LGBTQ individuals and can assist with such issues as self-acceptance, coming out, couples concerns and gender issues.

Working with veterans is another specialty area and I have the education and experience to facilitate healing for veterans facing PTSD and adjustment issues.

In my work, I strive to create a supportive, warm, safe atmosphere in which to explore your concerns. I believe that a good working relationship between therapist and client is essential and one of my goals is to develop the most therapeutic relationship possible.

I have a very gentle, easygoing demeanor. Yet, I'm a diligent therapist who listens well and is open and down to earth. You will not be judged and you and your concerns will be treated with respect.
