Psychē is dedicated to providing clients with the most highly-trained, responsive, and solid group of therapists possible, and of going above and beyond. Psychē is led by Dr. Stephanie Vaughn, Psy.D., a seasoned Cognitive Behavioral Therapy therapist (CBT) and Linehan Board Certified Dialectical Behavior Therapist (DBT). Whether you need therapy support for yourself, your child, or with a loved one, we will work for you so you can be confident that you will be taken care of. We can help with:
Therapy at PSYCHē
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Mentalization Based Therapy (MBT)
Mentalization is the way that we understand other people’s emotions, thoughts, desires, beliefs, and intentions. In fact, some of us have bigger problems than others in trying to mentalize. That’s part of the problem. Mentalization Based Therapy offers some solutions.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
DBT focuses on balancing acceptance and change, teaching real-world skills, and providing support between sessions in order to meet treatment goals. DBT draws upon the extensive Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) research, and was originally introduced as a specialized form of CBT.
Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RODBT)
RO-DBT helps those who may be a bit too “high strung” and “walk the line” a little too narrowly. RO-DBT studies have shown that it may be helpful with clients diagnosed with chronic depression, treatment-resistant anxiety, Anorexia Nervosa, Avoidant Personality Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder, and Autistic Spectrum Disorders.
Whether you need specific advice, techniques and tips, or just a kind and supportive listener, we have therapists who can help. We are trained in a variety of different treatments, both old and new. Our clients expect and deserve the best, so we never stop learning.
Joining a group therapy session can be scary, but the payoffs can last a lifetime. Whether it’s a Dialectical Behavior Therapy group (DBT), Radially Open-Dialectical Behavior Therapy group (RO-DBT), or Mentalization Based Therapy group (MBT), let’s find out what works for you.
Whether it’s communication problems, sexual issues, infidelity, or something else, you can bet we have a couples therapist who can help. Looking for pre-marital counseling or just want to make sure you stay as happy as you are now? We can help with that too.
Because we don't work with insurance companies, we can schedule quickly and provide more thorough assessments. We believe in doing things the right way the first time. We don't conduct "standard batteries" of tests because each clinical question is different. We tailor the assessment to your needs and your questions. You won't get one more or one less test than is needed to get the job done.
“Dr Vaughn and her staff are the best in Nashville. Professional in every sense of the word. They make you feel as if you part of a family. Couldn’t be happier with their services. I highly recommend Psyche if you need a life change.”
“When you are ready to improve your life, look no further than the team at PSYCHe, they are simply the best of the best at what they do. There are no other clinicians in Tennessee that are equipped or prepared to offer the same level of care that is provided here!”
“I cannot explain how grateful I am to have come across this group of individuals. From my first call to set up my intake appointment until my last day of therapy, I felt so much compassion and genuineness from every single person at this office. Participating in individual therapy and ESPECIALLY the DBT group was the absolute best investment I have made in my life thus far. Every single penny has been worth it. ”
