Meet Adam Naylor

The Basics

Where are you from?

Millbrook, AL is my hometown, but I also count all of these places home: Destin, FL; Hinesville, GA; Wichita Falls, TX; Moses Lake, WA; Tuscaloosa, AL; Nashville, TN; and now Memphis, TN

How do you spend your spare time?

I like to hang out with my wife, go to concerts, read books, travel, write music, hang out with friends, and play soccer, football or basketball — whichever has enough people gathered to play.

About Your Practice

Why did you become a therapist?

Life’s richest for me when I get to enter into the “mess” with others. We all have it. It’s common ground. We can move forward, together.

What do you think is important for a client to look for in a therapist?

Competence, continued growth, humility, availability

How does your faith play itself out in your work as a therapist?

I believe that, in this world, relationships are broken between self and God, self and others, and self and self. Therapy is an avenue through which we can be made whole again, and I believe healing always begins with honesty and trust between people who are in your corner.
