Therapy for Veteran's Issues
Veterans’ issues involve any issues associated with veterans and/or their family members (military families). Veterans oftentimes present with issues that are unique to the human experience. PTSD, suicide, and substance use prevalence are high in this population as a result of immense stress and trauma. Other issues may include adjustment to civilian life, re-integrating with family, medical care, mental health treatment, employment, and finances. Working with a therapist who specializes in veterans' issues may help someone overcome mental health issues linked to military 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.
