Hello, I am Bobby McNamara, LCSW. I provide individual and group therapy services in the Knoxville, TN area and am also available for video conferencing sessions. I am certified in a promising practice founded by Melanie McGhee called Acceptance and Integration Training™ (AAIT). My areas of expertise are depression, anxiety, bipolar, trauma, PTSD, athletics, addictions, relationship issues, resentments, anger, grief and loss, self-care, weight management, self-esteem, abandonment and perfectionism.
AAIT helps eliminate suffering in a relatively short amount of time, enabling you to make quick progress towards achieving your goals and living a more fulfilling life. AAIT alleviates the emotional charges one feels in response to various problems, replacing them with feelings of relief, acceptance and wholeness. This is not traditional talk therapy.
We will not spend much time focusing on the WHY of a problem. Similarly, you will not be expected to give a narrative or provide details about life’s painful experiences. I have not found this to be an effective use of session time, as it is time consuming and rarely results in healing. Instead, we will directly address your identified problems with the promising AAIT model that work to quickly relieve suffering and facilitate healing. I apply AAIT to minor problems, traumatic problems and everything in between. I hope to teach you these techniques to live life as your true self.
In my personal life, I love spending time with my wife, our three children, and pets. Exercise and good pizza (hence, the exercise) feed my soul. I am also a bit of a fanatic for University of Tennessee and Chicago sports. I routinely include Acceptance and Integration Training™ in my self-care to relieve daily tension and I hope to teach you these techniques to live life as your true self.
