DEDE ROWAN, LMFT
Divorce and Co-Parenting
Dede is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of TN and works with both couples and adult individuals.
Dede uses an integrative approach borrowing from Attachment Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Mindfulness-Based, Solution Focused, and Cognitive Based Therapy to provide thorough treatment for the whole person. The blending of these techniques allow clients to mend childhood wounds, learn more about their emotions and nervous system regulation, and develop skills to create more peace and better connection with self and others.
Relationships are the cornerstone of the work she does with clients. She believes her job is to provide a different perspective in hopes that you may access more self compassion, vulnerability, and authenticity.
"I care for the relationship with my clients more than anything else. I’m very intentional with validating and encouraging my clients so they feel heard, seen, and empowered. I like to clarify that I do not tell clients right from wrong or lend advice, but instead acknowledge what may be unspoken or overlooked that could help someone expand their window and see things more clearly. There is so much potential and relief in sharing and I hope to provide a safe space to do just that.”
To practice what she encourages others to do, Dede regularly sees her own therapist for ongoing support and self improvement. Her favorite pastime activities are hiking, live music, and trying new restaurants with her husband. She has a passion for learning about human development and is consuming information as much as she can!
