Cresson Haugland, LMFT

Cresson's approach as a therapist has been developed as a result of ongoing training under various psychotherapists utilizing systems theory, attachment based focuses, and a psychodynamic approach. Her therapeutic style is direct, compassionate, and collaborative. Trained in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, she is especially passionate about helping couples in chronic conflict and crisis get unstuck. She also uses a trauma-informed lens to guide individuals through the process of learning to tell the truth about who they are and how to navigate life's difficulties.

Cresson returned to her college home town of Nashville after several years in the nonprofit sector and pursuing her graduate degree in California. Her clinical experience began in the community mental health sector in the Los Angeles area, where she worked primarily with couples and families in crisis. Outside of her role as a therapist, Cresson is also the Clinical Director for Sage Hill and is pursuing her PhD in Counselor Education & Supervision from Belmont University. When she isn't in the therapy office you can find her opening up a bottle of red wine at a table with family and friends, reading journal articles for "fun", or planning which mountain peak to cross off her list next.
