Wes Cain, LPCA, NCC, IHC

President and Founder

I believe the core of effective therapy is the relationship. I tailor my therapeutic process to you, in order for you to reach your goals in a manner consistent with what works best for you and your true self. I believe in working off of a foundation of authenticity, compassion, non-judgment, and genuineness.

With a M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, as a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate, Nationally Certified Counselor, Integrative Health and Wellness Coach, Registered Yoga Teacher, along with professional training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Addiction, I feel equipped to serve you and your needs.

Since 2015, I have worked both as a clinical associate and as a counselor in residential treatment, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and college counseling settings serving adolescents, young emerging adults, and adult populations experiencing a range of presenting concerns.
I specialize in assessing and treating addiction and codependency, athlete performance, identity development, or transition, stress management, depression, life adjustments, managing difficult relationships and communication, and health and wellness strategies.

How Did I Get Here?
My background, skill-sets, and experiences are diverse, both personally and professionally. I have two undergraduate degrees in business and music business from Rhodes College and Belmont University and a Masters in accounting from Rhodes, including my CPA license. I’ve worked as a CPA, wealth management for artists and entertainers, sports marketing, athlete relations where I worked in business development, customer service and management roles with NFL players, as well as an entrepreneur operating my own business. I’ve taught business and finance courses at the collegiate level, played Div. I college basketball, and coached and trained kids at the high school basketball level.

I have a deep understanding of the athlete, the NFL player landscape, as well as the necessary steps that many of them must take in regards to health and wellness, financially, business skills, counseling, etc. after leaving the game. Over a span of six years, I worked with over 2,800 current and former NFL players, sports’ leagues and unions, and their representatives and have grown passionate about the challenges many athletes face during their transition out of the game into other opportunities in life.

In addition, with many friends and family in recovery, and through my own personal work and journey, I have a great desire to give back and serve clients from all walks of life.
In my spare time, I love to spend time with the people I love, including my dog, Snow, shoot basketball, create and play music, travel, read, and try my best to enjoy my life, while helping others enjoy theirs.

Will Radford, LCSW

Counselor

I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for over 20 years and have worked in the addictions/behavioral health field for over 25 years. I was recently the Director of Men's Treatment at Cumberland Heights Treatment Center in Nashville where I worked for 10 years. I have worked with men suffering from addictions and trauma in private practice as well as the facility setting. I am EMDR trained and work with men on issues other than addiction.

I have four children and live with my wife in Nashville.

I use a variety of experiential methods to work with clients. Art, photography, video and music are some of the mediums often utilized. Psychodrama is woven in and out of the clinical work. Taking men to the most vulnerable place and letting love penetrate and heal them is the goal.

Being a person in long term recovery, I appreciate the depth of the work our clients are asked to do. I have a great reverence for the courage that people show in allowing another to really see them in their wounded places and let another love them and heal.

My journey into the field of mental health has involved many twists and turns.

Haley Stocker, M.S

Counselor

Many clients struggle with understanding who they are and who they would ultimately like to become. I believe therapy should be a safe space for clients to explore identity and how our past experiences contribute to our sense of self today. Every person has a unique story. I am here to listen to that story, without judgment, and to help a person navigate their life moving forward.

I am a therapist currently working towards licensure in the state of Tennessee. I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of the South. Upon graduation, I took a position with a rural re-entry program, I worked with incarcerated and recently released individuals on domains of employment, education, and other social services. This work provided me with an opportunity to see the lack of mental health services among many different underserved communities. I decided to pursue graduate studies at Lipscomb University, where I received my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.

My treatment style is eclectic. I use methods from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness-based practices. I believe that everyone has their own path to recovery and that treatment methods should be tailored to the client. Therapy should be a collaborative effort that focuses on helping to resolve client issues.

I work with adolescents and adults. My treatment interests include working with the LGBTQ+ community, substance-related issues, anxiety, family/systems issues, developing positive communication, increasing self-esteem/self-advocacy, and life transitions.

When I am not providing counseling services, I also work as a researcher. I pride myself on being up to date with the latest clinical research. Some of my other interests include needlepoint, baking, gardening, horror films, and exploring new restaurants.

Kimberlee Massey-Owen, M.S., LCSW

Counselor

Life can be complicated, overwhelming, challenging, and messy. People don’t tend to fit in neat little boxes, but I find that beautiful. The people I comes in contact with never cease to amaze and inspire me with their stories, struggles, and victories. I am committed to creating a
safe and nonjudgmental space for people to explore healing and reconnect with themselves, others, and with hope beyond ourselves. My focus is relational and I believe this is the most healing aspect of any treatment modal. “We are wounded in relationship, and we heal in relationship.” I am passionate about those from all walks of life and addressing a variety of issues such as addiction, anxiety, relational issues, grief, and transitions. I believe each person has the
capacity for growth and each individual possesses unique strengths that can be uncovered and developed to address challenges and become the best version of themselves. It is all a process, and we are all in it. We all have this condition called “human.” I love watching it unfold, seeing healing take place, and empowering people to live a life they are called to.

I am a Licensed Master’s of Social Work. My background began in residential treatment working with addiction, trauma, and recovery from various life altering issues. It continued in out-patient and sober living settings with both individuals and families. I received my Master’s in Social Work and Evidence-Based Interpersonal Practice from the University of Tennessee, and my Bachelor’s in Social Work and Behavioral Science from Trevecca Nazarene University.

Outside of counseling, I love all things outdoors, playing music, exploring the city with my husband, and connecting with the people in my life. I value relationships and deep conversations, love a great cup of coffee, don’t mind getting lost on a trail in the woods. I am open to hard
questions, ready to listen, and am invested in knowing the person in front of me.
