Henegar/CBI Counseling Center Welcomes New Counselors to Clinical Staff

CHATTANOOGA, TN – (September 12, 2013)

The Henegar/CBI Counseling Center, a part of Richmont Graduate University, is pleased to announce the additions of two new counselors to its clinical staff.

  • Jane Neall, recently graduated with a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling and brings a wealth of life experience to her work as a counselor. Her personal journey as a nurse, wife, mother, and cancer survivor uniquely equips her to serve clients throughout Chattanooga. Jane summarizes her approach to counseling saying, “I use an interpersonal process approach to therapy which means I understand current problems through the lens of personal history, patterns of thinking and relational style, but focus the therapy on current behavior and relationships. I use some cognitive behavioral therapy approaches and solution-focused approaches when appropriate.”
  • Ryan Thompson, began his training at Richmont in Atlanta before going to George Fox University where he completed a Psy.D. He is now a licensed psychologist and joins the Henegar/CBI Counseling Center from Hatch’s House of Hope in Chattanooga. He is a well-trained and experienced in psychological assessment, particularly cognitive functioning, and will provide counseling services to adults and children. He is also near certification as a trainer in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and will provide this important service to families as well as teaching other clinicians and interns the skills of PCIT. Dr. Thompson is also an adjunct professor at Richmont and will now serve as a member of the Clinical Faculty.

“Henegar/CBI Counseling Center continues to be blessed by God’s “parade of providence” in bringing such wonderful counselors to our staff,” said CBI Director and Richmont faculty member, Dr. Tim Sisemore. “I am very thankful for the superior quality of clinicians we have gathered here.”
