Andy Melton, PhD
Professional Counselor (LPC-MHSP)
I've been working as a Licensed Professional Counselor for nearly 15 years. During that time I've had the opportunity to work with folks in private practice, community mental health, university student counseling, psychiatric hospitalization and addictions programs. I look forward to putting my experience to work to help you reach your therapy goals.
In 2018, I completed my PhD in counselor education and supervision from Trevecca University in Nashville. In 2007, I graduated with a masters in counseling and marriage and family therapy from John Brown University in Arkansas.
My wife and I, along with our 15 y/o daughter and 13 y/o son, live in the Madison/Inglewood area of Nashville. My wife and I are high school sweethearts from a small town in Missouri. We've been married 20 years and settled into Nashville about 9 years ago. We are proud to call Nashville home.
I LOVE WHAT I DO
A LITTLE ABOUT ME
EFFECTIVE COUNSELING SERVICES
When you guys are ready, I'd be glad to sit down and talk through your story and discuss strategies and solutions to move your relationship forward. I once heard someone say, "When your marriage sucks, your whole life sucks." I tend to agree. Any positive changes you guys make, even tiny changes, can make a significant impact on your world as a couple. I’ve successfully worked with many couples who want more in their relationship.

Maybe you're an entrepreneur, executive, part of a start up, or a mix of all of these roles. Perhaps you feel at times that no one gets you. You’re likely aware that manic-depressive symptoms are synonymous with entrepreneurship. The high highs and low lows are not easy. You may need a safe place to discuss the unique challenges of your work. I’d be glad to meet up for a brief consultation to see if I’m the right fit for you.

Sometimes we need a safe place to go where we can be ourselves and say anything. At times we simply need to be understood and talk things out with someone who is not part of our family or friend circles, someone with the training and skills to help us navigate through difficult thoughts and emotions, relationships, beliefs, and work-life. I've had the opportunity to walk along side clients who desire internal and external changes, but may not know the steps.

PREPPING FOR A
Premarital counseling is typically 6-8 visits covering communication, conflict resolution, money/time management, sexual expectations, what's different in good marriages, etc. Couples take an online assessment (PREPARE) which gives both of you the chance to take a robust online assessment to discover more about your strengths and potential blind spots as a couple. Four or more sessions qualifies for a $60 discount on a TN marriage licence. Call or text 615-669-4105 to set up a consult or click below to schedule a session.
