About Me

Thank you for visiting my page… please read to learn more about how I can meet your needs!!!

My name is Chalene Gardenhire and I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Memphis State University in 1994. In December 2008, I obtained a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Georgia and earned a unrestricted professional license in 2016 becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have over 15 years of mental health experience and specialize in relationship challenges, women’s issues, young adult transitions and grief and loss.

As a therapist, I provide individual and group counseling and facilitate grief and loss support groups. I practice the Family Preservation Model as it relates to your emotional and behavioral difficulties while providing quality service, compassion and education to every individual I encounter. I meet you where you are emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. I am open to understanding and appreciating your spiritual journey and will assist with what’s necessary in finding your inner peace. I promote spiritual healthiness through Meditation, listening to uplifting music, spending time with nature, maintaining physical healthiness, purging negative energy, and following your instincts.

I embrace the concept of “meeting my clients where they are” to supply each of you with the tools you need to cope with the trials of life.

Chalene has been a great counselor. She provides clear and effective feedback and action steps between each session. She follows up between sessions and is available for messaging when needed. I'm happy I am working with Chalene.
