Therapists in Tennessee specializing in Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Below you’ll find a list of therapists in Tennessee who specialize in treating Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and are available for online and in-person therapy sessions. You can review each therapist’s profile page to decide if they’re right for you, and then easily book an appointment.
Therapy for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
PTSD is a condition that is precipitated by a perceived terrifying event. This event need not occur directly to the person but may happen vicariously—having seen something terrible happen to another person. The condition may last months or years while symptoms include ruminating thoughts, flashbacks, nightmares, intense anxiety when triggered, and potential substance abuse in an attempt to cope. Working with a therapist who specializes in treating PTSD may reduce symptom frequency and severity and lead to a better quality life.
Finding a Therapist, Counselor, or Psychologist in Tennessee
Finding a therapist in Tennessee may be easier in cities like Nashville. If you’re in a more rural area or if a therapist with a specific specialty isn't nearby, online therapy might be a suitable alternative.
In Tennessee, out-of-pocket costs for therapy typically range between $120 - $165 per session. For couples counseling and family therapy, the costs are likely to be in a similar range. It's essential to be aware that the first appointments with a therapist might be slightly longer and more expensive. Specialized services may also cost more than average.
There are currently over 11,000 counselors working in Tennessee with licenses, including Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW), Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFT), Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC), and Psychologists (Ph.D. and Psy.D.).
If you believe you might be eligible for free or reduced-cost services from the state, it's a good idea to explore local resources to see if you qualify for Medicaid or other state-sponsored programs.
