Therapists in Tennessee specializing in Trauma
Below you’ll find a list of therapists in Tennessee who specialize in trauma 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 Trauma
Trauma is the result of experiencing a perceived, extremely distressful event. Although the stress threshold for each person differs, meaning that each person considers and experiences trauma differently, it is an event that tops one’s threshold. It exceeds one’s ability to cope or emotionally process. Symptoms may include shock, anxiety, confusion, hopelessness, feeling disconnected, mood swings, nightmares, and intrusive thoughts. Working with a therapist who specializes in trauma may reduce symptom frequency and severity and lead to a better quality of 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.
