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 ago 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 for psychiatric assessment and medication needs. In the Spring of 2018, ownership changes and a new expansion of non-medical services in the clinic led to the launch of Haven Counseling Center as the provider of counseling/therapy services, while the psychiatry/medication management services became an independent practice in the clinic location called Knoxville Family Psychiatry. Seeing the need for more expansion and growth, the partner/owners of Knoxville Family Psychiatry moved that practice into new office space in February 2020 in downtown Knoxville, where they remain dedicated to care for the specifically medical mental health needs of our community, and we are very grateful for their continued partnership with us. We continue our work as Haven Counseling Center in our primary location in the Bearden area of West Knoxville, where we continue to provide counseling, support groups, and development trainings for individual adults, children, adolescents, couples, and families.
We hope that you will consider setting up an appointment with us.
