Knoxville Center for Marriage Counseling

Knoxville Center for Marriage Counseling (KCMC) provides counseling services to both couples and individuals who want to work on healing emotionally, mentally, relationally, and spiritually.  KCMC uses non-judgmental, empathic, and research-based approaches to guiding couples and individuals through their struggles and into a happier and more fulfilling life. Additionally, KCMC offers counseling services from a Christian perspective to those who believe in the importance of incorporating their faith in the counseling process.


Are you wondering if counseling can help your relationship? Here are some common reasons couples choose to seek counseling:

  • “We have the same fights over and over again and nothing ever gets resolved”  

  • “We feel like roommates more than lovers”

  • “There’s been infidelity and we don’t know how to heal”

  • “We have a baby coming and we want to resolve any problems before life gets busier”

  • “We’re never on the same page when communicating”

  • “We feel so distant and disconnected”

  • “We’re getting married soon and want to start on a solid foundation”

  • “We’re threatened by divorce and don’t know what else to do”


Couples counseling can be helpful regardless of what stage you are at in your relationship. Some couples seek counseling to help strengthen their engagement or marriage and increase their connection, closeness, and intimacy. Other couples come in crisis; after the discovery of an affair or loss of a child. If you’re questioning if counseling can help you and are wondering if I’m the right fit, please don’t hesitate to contact me for a free 15-minute phone consultation.


Marriage counseling can help you and your partner navigate stuck points, decrease the frequency and intensity of your arguments, and start to feel closer and more loved. 


We all struggle sometimes and individual counseling can help by offering you a safe place to process thoughts and feelings and learn coping tools to better deal with life's challenges. 


Christian counseling is offered for couples and individuals who want to incorporate their faith into the counseling process. 

About Me

Joey Wenning, LPC-MHSP

Certified EFT Therapist

I’m a master’s level, licensed professional counselor and have been counseling in Knoxville since 2009. I began my work with families, primarily counseling women suffering from addiction, mental health, and trauma, with a focus on mending and healing relationships with their families. My passion has always been working with couples and helping them strengthen and heal their relationships. In 2014, I began training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and have since become a Certified Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist. I’ve been specializing in this model of therapy for the past 5 years in my work with couples and, similar to what research studies have shown, I have experienced it to be an incredibly powerful and successful approach. I am a part of several professional memberships including ACA (American Counseling Association), ICEEFT (The International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy), and TCA (Tennessee Counseling Association).
