Hello, my name is Mayme Siders. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 15 years of experience in the social work arena and over 5 years in direct therapy practice. I have worked in the medical arena, the public school system, the state child welfare system, as a trainer/educator for the State of Tennessee, as a community mental health counselor, and most recently as a counselor for college students. This varied work experience has afforded me the opportunity to work with a wide variety of people of all ages and backgrounds and with a myriad of experiences and needs.
I have lived in Tennessee virtually all my life. I attended The University of Tennessee at Knoxville for both my Bachelor's and my Master's. I continued to live in Knoxville for 10 years. I am married and have three children. One in elementary school, one in middle school, and one in college (never a dull moment at our house =). I also have 2 completely rotten dogs, a Dachshund named Ziggy and a Havanese named Appa. My passions are being outside (preferably on the water somewhere), working in my garden, spending lots of time with my family and friends and travelling whenever I have the opportunity.
