About Us

We believe that every person at one time or another comes to a place in life where they are experiencing struggles. It is at these moments when some seek outside help to assist with life transitions, difficult situations, and to learn new skills that can help them to navigate life’s paths more effectively. Having an outside support person (therapist) to assist during these times can be very beneficial in overcoming the adversities at hand.

Overcoming Adversity currently has one therapist, Alisha L. Cobb, MSC. Alisha attended Carson-Newman University for her post high school studies. Mrs. Cobb majored in Applied Psychology during her undergraduate program at Carson-Newman and obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree within this major.

After obtaining her bachelor’s degree, Alisha later re-enrolled in the graduate program at Carson-Newman University. Mrs. Cobb successfully completed the graduate program and was awarded a Master’s of Science in Counseling degree.

After obtaining her Master’s degree, Alisha began the process of working toward becoming licensed. She is currently working to obtain her LPC (licensed professional counselor) and MHSP (mental health service provider) licensure. Her current goal is complete this licensure process by the end of 2013 becoming fully licensed at that time.

Since September 2006, Alisha has been working for a company that provides intensive in-home family therapy to families in East Tennessee. During this time Alisha has assisted many families in their development of a wide variety of skills such as anger management, coping skills, parenting skills, and communication skills. In her work with children, specifically, Mrs. Cobb has helped in the development of social skills, positive behaviors, de-escalation plans, and relaxation techniques. Many struggling families have been able to learn new skills and interaction patterns, increasing their level of family harmony due to their work with Alisha in the therapeutic process. Alisha will continue her work with this company while also working to build a private practice through Overcoming Adversity. Her long term goal is to obtain the license she is currently working toward obtaining and moving into a private practice setting full time.
