Haley Boswell, LMFT
Haley is passionate about walking alongside people being restored to wholeness and living from a place of authenticity. Her approach to therapy is collaborative and includes integrating Narrative, EMDR, CBT, Experiential, IFS, 12 Step approach, and other systemic theories. Part of her specialty is creating a non-judgmental, safe space for people to practice vulnerability and find healing.
Haley’s educational background includes a Master’s Degree from Lipscomb University in Marriage and Family Therapy and a Bachelor’s Degree from Southern Illinois University in Industrial Engineering. Her clinical experience includes working at Lipscomb Family Therapy Center, the Tennessee Prison Outreach Ministry, and The Ranch. Her education and training, along with her own experience in recovery, give Haley a holistic lens to operate from.
Haley does this work because she believes the journey of being restored to wholeness can be some of the most respectable and valuable pieces of life.
She is from the flatlands of Illinois, but has learned to love the rolling hills of Tennessee! She has been doing life with her husband of 10 years, along with their two Great Danes, Sam and Tuxy.

About Your Practice
Accidentally... but I couldn't imagine doing anything else now. In short, I got into this profession by testing it out first as a client. I'm able to say I believe in the product I'm advertising!
Who has influenced your work?
Pia Mellody, Bessel van der Kolk, Murray Bowen, Francine Shapiro, Brene Brown, Melody Beattie, Patrick Carnes, and John Bradshaw. I fully believe in the idea of mentorship so I've had several individuals that have personally influenced my relation to self and consequently others.
How does your faith play itself out in your work?
I think I will always be learning more about my faith, my work, and how the two intertwine... maybe they're one in the same.
I have never been able to answer this question in a straightforward way! I love music. I initially pay more attention to the rhythms and layers of sound than I do the words. Depending on how I feel, my favorite will be classic rock, hip hop, jazz, 90's rap, 80's anything, reggae, instrumental, Christian, and pop.
Which TV show would you never miss?
I often miss TV shows.
What's your favorite book or author?
Such a tough question. TBD
What is your favorite sport/physical activity?
Volleyball and Dance
What's your favorite place to visit?
That place with water, mountains, nature, and 73 degrees partly cloudy with a slight breeze.
Just for Fun
What is your most treasured possession?
My Nike Air Jordans. I'm kidding... while I do enjoy a good pair of shoes, I'm going to say old family photos passed down from prior generations.
If you have friends coming over, what would you cook?
n/a - the cooking part. I do have friends that would come over though!
What pastimes or hobbies do you enjoy?
Two stand out as great memories from childhood: going hiking/rock climbing and playing cards/games at family get togethers. I enjoy both of these today!
Other than your current home, if you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
The places that come to mind I've never actually been to like Italy and Australia. I may go there and find out I don't want to live there, but that seems unlikely! Otherwise, I'd go with that place with water, mountains, etc. that I mentioned earlier.
