An Integrative Approach to Mental Health and Whole Person Wellness

It is our belief that in mental health, healing occurs by treating the whole person. It’s with this belief that we have created a Therapy Collective of practitioners specializing in mental health issues, nutrition, medication management, body movement and other holistic integrative practices. At Integrative Therapy of Nashville, clients have access to a collective group of clinicians offering comprehensive treatment options for their individual and family needs.

Welcome to Integrative Therapy of Nashville

Hi, we are so glad you are here! We hope that as you explore our site, you will see the heartbeat of this Collective is YOU!

We have brought together a highly competent team of like-minded clinicians who approach mental health wellness by treating the whole person.

We seek to be trauma-informed and culturally-inclusive as we honor each client that walks through our doors .

All of our practitioners operate in their own private practices. This means that they share our values while maintaining their autonomy as a professional provider. Please contact us if you see a therapist who seems like the best fit for you.We can also make a recommendation based on your specific needs.

We hope that as you enter our space you will notice our passion, authenticity, humor and hospitality. Our goal is for you to feel safe, comfortable and cared for as you begin your healing process.
