Sean Coyle, LPC-MHSP

Meet Sean ...

Sean (he/him) is a Licensed Professional Counselor Mental Health Service Provider (LPC-MHSP #5808) and a Staff Therapist at ETG. He graduated from Trevecca Nazarene University with a MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.

Until recently he was employed in a residential treatment center setting where he specialized working alongside clients who were struggling with various forms of addiction, trauma, and mental health issues. He has received training in multiple therapeutic modalities including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) (level I), Brainspotting (level I), Psychodrama, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). He likes to approach therapy from an Experiential Therapy mindset of, “show me, don’t tell me,” while integrating concepts from Attachment Theory to recognize what we learned in childhood in regards to who we are, how we relate to others, and what we had to do in order to feel safe and secure.

He believes it is not uncommon nowadays to find ourselves within our society feeling lost. We’ve learned to neglect ourselves, our needs, and feel unable to call upon others when we need help. We’ve learned to internalize feelings of shame and speak to ourselves in a hyper-critical voice. He believe this often comes from a place of wounding from our past that drives us further away from our true, authentic self. When we are able to learn how to care and nurture ourselves in the way we needed in the past, then we can begin to shift the beliefs we hold about ourselves and who we are in relation to others.

Prior to working in therapy, Sean used to work as a Live Sound Engineer around Nashville. Music is still an incredibly important part of his life and he is an avid fan of Punk and Hip Hop. In his spare time he can be found at concerts, hiking, and spending quality time with his cats.
