The story of Haven is not just about the vision of one or two people, but is about the culmination of the dreams and passions of several mental health providers in the Knoxville area. Friends and colleagues who had worked in various medical settings and counseling centers began talking years earlier about having a clinic location that could provide both counseling and medication management in the same practice, and how this practice could provide an inviting environment that would be sensitive to the the values and beliefs of those who were being served (Haven's Mission Statement).
In the Fall of 2015, the original group of clinicians came together as Haven Family Psychiatry and we began seeing our first patients in January of 2016. In the Spring of 2018, ownership changes and expansions in the clinic led to the creation Haven Counseling Center as the provider of counseling/therapy services, while the psychiatry/medication management services became an independent practice in the clinic called Knoxville Family Psychiatry. Seeing the need for more expansion and growth, Knoxville Family Psychiatry moved into new office space in 2020 in downtown Knoxville, dedicated to care for the specifically medical mental health needs of our community. With Haven Counseling Center continuing on in our primary location in West Knoxville, and with both groups looking forward to our opportunities to serve.
We hope that you will consider setting up an appointment with us.
