Adrienne Thompson, LPC-MHSP (Temp)

Licensed Professional Counselor

Helping a young person and families find hope, strength and resiliency through connection is what I love about being a therapist. I am passionate about working alongside children, adolescents, and families as they navigate life’s hardships. I believe that when working with children and teens, working together with the family helps promote growth and change. I have experience working with depression, school behavioral concerns, anxiety, trauma, sexual and physical abuse, divorce, and grief. I use an experiential approach as I have found that allowing children and teens to process their experiences and emotions with a hands-on approach to be beneficial for healing. I incorporate evidence-based practices through play-based interventions, mindfulness practices, and person-centered therapy.

I completed my Bachelor of Science at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga where I majored in Child and Family Studies and minor in Psychology. I then decided to return to the Nashville area where I completed my Master of Education in Human Development Counseling at Vanderbilt University. During that time, I completed my first internship with Vanderbilt School-Based Therapy and completed my second internship with Nashville Children’s Alliance where I received training in trauma for survivors of sexual and physical abuse.
