Mikayla Owen, LMSW

Accepting self-pay clients at $90 initial intake/$60 session

My name is Mikayla Owen and I'm a Licensed Master Social Worker in the state of TN currently working towards my clinical licensure.  I have been practicing various aspects of social work in East TN for seven years in shelters, community nonprofit agencies, court systems, school and home settings. I have been focusing on mental health counseling for almost three years now with one year’s experience in a private practice setting. My education included psychotherapy with focused additional training in advocacy, social welfare and societal issues. 


I have experience working with a wide array of concerns, but my main passion lies in grief and bereavement work as well as human animal interaction (HAI) .  Most of my familiarity thus far lies in assisting teenagers and families but I am comfortable working with individuals ages 8 and older in person and/or virtually. 


 I utilize several therapeutic approaches based on each individual's preference and specific situational needs. I lean towards a Humanistic Approach to Solution and Compassion Focused Narrative therapy. I am currently trained in specific modalities of (PFA) Psychological First Aid, (TF-CBT) Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and will soon be working on my (EMDR) Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing certification.  I studied Veterinary Social Work, am a Certified Pet Loss Grief Counselor, and enjoy (AAI) Animal Assisted Interventions. I will be offering alternating grief and animal loss support groups in the future. If you are interested, please check back on our profile for updates.
