I am Tempia Waddell. I am the Clinical Director of The Resiliency Center of Memphis. I was born and raised in the inner city of Memphis and I noticed a huge problem in my community. People in my neighborhood and in my common spaces were suffering from mental health challenges and there was a lack of resources and services to assist with tackling people’s everyday barriers. It became my mission to offer a space that provides professional support by means of evidence based interventions to lighten the mental health load that was heavy on others. My commitment and pledge to you is that at The Resiliency Center of Memphis you will be believed, you will be treated with the utmost respect, and that our staff will be responsive to your needs. My commitment to you is that if you make it to our office doors, we will walk with you towards the path of living your best life.
