Willow Springs Counseling

Individual Counseling

We all face challenges in our lives, but when you find yourself overwhelmed, stuck, or alone in these difficulties, individual counseling can be helpful.

Couples Counseling

We provide marriage counseling, premarital counseling, marriage enrichment sessions, and specialized counseling for couple’s recovering from betrayal.

Child & Adolescent Counseling

We utilize a family systems approach to assess and address individual, family and environmental factors that impact a child’s well-being.

Parent Coaching

Parent coaching is a highly effective approach that allows parents to meet with a counselor for guidance on a particular parenting challenge.

Family Counseling

Family counseling includes a counselor and family members meeting together to address underlying issues that prevent healthy connections.

Trainings & Workshops

We offer training and workshops for individuals, couples and mental health and pastoral counselors.

Willow Springs was born out of a dream to bring the worlds of pastoral care and professional counseling together.  

We are a group of professional counselors, who have also served as ministry leaders within the local church. We are passionate about equipping others with the psychological and spiritual resources they need to think, live, and love in all seasons of their life. We provide professional, Christian based counseling and relationship enrichment resources for individuals, couples, families and the greater Knoxville community. 

We understand that the pursuit of counseling is a courageous decision, requiring an investment of your heart and resources. Therefore, we are committed to a standard of excellence in knowledge and care.  We use a goal-directed, collaborative approach that paces with the needs of our clients. However, what makes us distinct is the integration of evidenced based psychology with a biblical understanding of relationships, the heart and change.  We believe this deeply roots people in grace, hope, and healing.

Second, you may call our main office number at (865)444-8580 and leave a voicemail on a counselor’s direct extension or leave a general inquiry on extension 9.

Our counselors will do their best to respond to all inquiries within 24-48 business hours.


No, our counselors do not accept insurance. Upon request, our counselors can give you a detailed receipt to seek out-of-network insurance reimbursement from your medical insurance company. Please be aware that a mental health diagnosis will need to be declared on your receipt for your insurance company to deem counseling services medically necessary and, therefore, eligible for reimbursement. Additionally, you would still be responsible to cover the payments of your counseling sessions upfront, and handle all future paperwork/correspondence between yourself and your insurance carrier.

We accept payment options such as credit cards, HSA cards, cash and checks. We have a required consent form for automated credit card payments, if you choose that option for your convenience. Please see our “Wellspring Team” section to peruse our different counselor’s information and rates, as these vary based on years of experience, expertise, specialized training and length of counseling sessions.

The No Surprises Act

This act requires health care providers to provide clients with a “Good Faith Estimate” in instances when they may lack insurance or insurance is unable to be used for a service. This is a document which outlines the estimated costs for receiving counseling. This protects you as the consumer so that you can plan and be aware of the expected costs up front, and not experience any unexpected surprises. You will receive this Good Faith Estimate by your first appointment.

As part of our office policies, we do ask that you notify your counselor as soon as you are aware of a need to reschedule. Our schedule operates on appointment times, which means that time has been specifically reserved for you. Our office has a 24-hour cancellation policy, meaning if you cancel less than 24 hours in advance, you will be charged the full fee for the session. We do understand that on rare occasions unexpected emergencies can occur and we will take these instances into consideration. Ultimately, we ask that clients keep track of their appointments carefully in order to avoid any additional fees.

In the event of a crisis, please call Mobile Crisis (865-539-2509) or present to your nearest emergency room. Willow Springs Counseling Center operates during weekday business hours and is not equipped with systems necessary to respond to emergencies.
