Tim, who has been serving as the interim executive director of the organization since December 2018, has also been the agency’s clinical services director since 2001. “We are so very pleased that Tim has accepted this new leadership role,” shares Jane Murphy, Family Services Board Chair. “The board, management team and entire staff of Family Services are confident that Tim is the exact person needed to move Family Services of Davidson County forward. His leadership style combined with his level of expertise of the agency is a perfect fit. We looked outside the organization knowing that the true leader was right here the entire time.”

The organization provides counseling services, youth and family services and crisis intervention.
Counseling services assist individuals, youth and families who are or have experienced primary and secondary traumas that continue to create difficulties in managing important areas of their lives. The agency’s licensed clinicians provide quality individual, couple, family, and group counseling services that address issues such as parent-child relationship problems, child behavior problems, child abuse and adults with a history of abuse and anxiety, depression, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder and other problems associated with experiencing trauma.
Youth and Community Services provide comprehensive services to reduce juvenile delinquency. Staff assist young people and families who are faced with difficulties at school, home or in the community to improve their chances for success in life. Priority is placed on reducing the likelihood that at-risk youth will continue down a criminal path.
In addition, Crisis Intervention Services provides a safe, temporary home, accessible 24 hours a day to individuals and families who are actively fleeing domestic and/or sexual violence, to support victims and their families throughout the legal, medical, and healing process. The crisis line is available 24/7 to provide immediate confidential crisis response intervention, information, referral, and support services to victims of domestic and sexual violence.
“The Board’s focus over the next few months is to formally introduce our new executive director” explains Murphy, “and spend time telling the awesome story about Family Services.” A community wide open house will be held in August to help welcome Tim into his new role and provide an opportunity for community members to visit the agency and learn more about services provided.
