Dr. Denise Davis is a clinical psychologist who specializes in cognitive behavioral psychotherapy for depression, anxiety, phobias, self-esteem, body image, pain and chronic medical conditions, and coping with stress related to work, family, health, trauma, recovery, life changes or difficult decisions.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is an active, problem-focused psychotherapy where the client and therapist focus on current, here-and-now issues. Hundreds of clinical trials provide powerful scientific evidence of the benefits of cognitive therapy for many different disorders. The goal for most clients is to solve specific problems, make decisions, change patterns of behavior, achieve or adjust to changes, and overcome emotional distress. In CBT, clients also learn more about themselves and ways that they can optimize their happiness, resilience and quality of life. As a Founding Fellow of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy, Dr. Davis integrates well-established methods of altering distressing thoughts and self-defeating behaviors with cutting edge mindfulness and acceptance strategies to help her clients achieve their personal goals for well-being.
Dr. Davis has over thirty years of clinical experience as a cognitive behavioral therapist for older adolescents and adults. As a licensed Heath Service Provider in Clinical Psychology (TN license #P-1348), she is committed to providing a high quality psychotherapy experience. She combines comprehensive scientific knowledge and contemporary methods with compassionate understanding and concern for each unique individual.
