(Click here for www.Clinical-Psychologist.com)

      Dr. Charles E. Martin is a licensed clinical psychologist in full-time private practice with offices in Knoxville, Tennessee (Knox County).  He is currently accepting selected new patients.

     Dr. Martin has been in practice over 30 years working with adults, couples, and families with a wide range of problems.   One of Dr. Martin's special areas of interest is marriage and couples counseling.

     Dr. Martin's approach in marriage and family counseling is to give couples direct advice and help them develop "how-to" skills in solving problems.   Most couples who seek marriage counseling have difficulties in communications, and one of Dr. Martin's areas of specialization is helping clients improve their communications skills.   He does this through special attention to a list of connunication skills called the Ground Rules of Communication. This is a series of guidelines that help couples stop hurtful and frustrating arguments and start communicating effectively.   Of most importance, Dr. Martin tries to help couples to find "win-win" solutions to problems.

      You are invited to browse through any of the following sections to gain more information about his practice.   Dr. Martin is currently accepting new patients and invites your call.

Directions to Dr. Martin's Office

 

 

     We are located just off Kingston Pike on Center Park Drive just barely west of the Pellissippi Parkway interchange. At the traffic light at the entrance to the Fort Sanders West complex, turn North on Center Park Drive (away from Fort Sanders West and toward the Slyman Real Estate Building), go around the immediate "S" curve, and we are in the first building on the left.  This building has offices on all four sides, and our offices are on the back side of the building in Suite 1300.  The entrance is around the corner from the parking area.  The office sign reads Pellissippi Psychiatry & Counseling.

Marriage Counseling Treatment Philosophy

 

     Dr. Martin's approach to marriage and couples counseling is to teach them: (1) ways to improve communications skills, (2) gain respect for each other, (3) learn when, where, and how to talk about problems, (4) learn how long to talk about a problem, and especially how to 'agree to disagree', (5) learn how to cope with slips and slidebacks, (6) and improve problem-solving skills.   Of highest priority is Dr. Martin's teaching couples how do develop the attitude of wanting 'win-win' solutions.

     In a nutshell, Dr. Martin teaches a couple how to have the best attitude, communication skills, and problem-solving skills.

     An important part of finding solutions is making the most of the sessions.   Dr. Martin will often suggest homework assignments or recommended readings which the couple can pursue between sessions to enhance the counseling process.

     If either partner is having problems with depression or anxiety or there are any indications that medication appears to be needed, Dr. Martin will help the client get an appropriate medical evaluation.   Dr. Martin routinely works with a client's primary care physician or psychiatrists in the community.   If a patient does not have a primary care physician, Dr. Martin can give a referral list of well-qualified physicians.
