About Us

Cadey Phipps, LMFT

Licensed Therapist + AAMFT Approved Supervisor,

Founder & Clinical Director

I’m Cadey and my pronouns are she/her. As a therapist, I find it important to first show up as a human. I aim to meet others where they are and allow for the parts of me that have personally experienced healing, heartbreak, love, grief, joy, trauma, and loss to sit beside me as I work with you. I love that my job allows me to connect to other, real humans with compassion and curiosity. When I’m not working, you can find me spending time with my partner, our rainbow/IVF baby girl, our cats and a rotation of foster kittens and pups; reading; creating music; or eating at a new restaurant. I love finding new ways to move my body in a fun and enjoyable way, and am HAES aligned and IE informed. I am passionate about helping humans connect to their inner wisdom in order to connect fully with others. I’m here to listen without judgement and help you find healing, peace, and acceptance in order to live your most authentic life. I am so excited to work with you, wherever you are in your life journey!

Payton Lindner, MMFT

Identity Doula + Healing Practitioner,

Partner + Director of Administration & Office Operations

Yo! I’m Payton, I’m an openly queer + nonbinary human and my pronoun are they/she! Of the many things that I love, my two very large puppies, expressive art, my wonderful partner, and exploring nature are at the top of that list. I have burning passions for advocacy, authenticity, creativity, inclusivity, and breaking all of the norms. (Lucky for us, this – in my opinion – is the perfect combination for constructing a beautifully customized path towards your growth and healing!) My philosophy as an Identity Doula + Healing Practitioner takes into consideration that every human and every situation is different, thus unique tools and approaches are required for unique people and things. Sessions with me will go beyond standard talk therapy, as it is my personal and professional opinion that humans often heal with art, movement, visuals, embodiment, activities, and music better than they do with standard talk therapy alone. Who or whatever you are, you are welcome. I’m stoked you’re here.

Shelby Logsdon, MMFT

Masters of Marriage and Family Therapy

Welcome!  My name is Shelby and my pronouns are she/her. Originally from California, I came to Tennessee by way of Washington, DC many years ago. When I’m not in my therapy office, you can find me managing life’s follies with my partner, hanging out with my 3 kids, and wrangling a myriad of felines and our German Shepherd, Spike. I love to read and am always learning. I also enjoy seeing live music and exploring new places. I stay active through yoga, hiking, running, and paddleboarding as often as I can. I am passionate about helping people on their healing journey and I am honored to be considered a part of yours.

Lacey Raley, MMFT

Masters of Marriage and Family Therapy

I’m Lacey! (she/her) I am deeply passionate about helping you work toward autonomy in your life, which is a fancy way of saying that you deserve to intuitively define what you want for yourself and your life. I believe we are complex humans who deserve complex and complete healing, but that looks different for everyone; I am also a complex human, and I bring my authentic self into all of my work. I have no desire to be some sort of therapist robot who feels disconnected and one-dimensional. Outside of the therapy room, you can find me spending time with my partner (when he isn’t on the road – hi music industry fam) along with our pup, Theo the Weimaraner. I also love baking autoimmune-friendly desserts (hi chronic illness fam), getting creative with creative projects, biking, finding new ways to move my body, and finding beauty in the small stuff. I am HAES aligned and IE informed, and I work from an intersectional, creative, and somatic healing perspective.

JD Benson, MMFT

Masters of Marriage and Family Therapy

I’m glad you’re here. I’m JD, and my pronouns are she/her. I am originally from Missouri but have been in Nashville for over 20 years. As someone who comes from a large family, I have experienced the unique dynamics and challenges that come with family relationships. Relationships are a place where we can find some of our deepest wounding, but they are also a place where we can heal; starting with the relationship with our Self. When I am not working, my quality time is spent with my husband/partner, teenager, family, friends, and my dog and two cats.

Shari Anderson, MMFT

Masters of Marriage and Family Therapy

Hey there! I’m Shari, and my pronouns are she/her. I made the move from the Windy City (Chicago) to Music City in 2021 to attend Lipscomb University’s Marriage and Family Therapy program. When I’m not in therapist mode, I enjoy cooking, traveling, finding new restaurants to try, concerts, reading, karaoke, and a good Netflix binge! I also love spending time with family, friends and my schnauzer/terrier mix, Onyx. As a therapist, I strive to provide a space where you can be seen, heard, honored, and supported in your growth, no matter what that looks like for you. I work collaboratively with you, showing up as a cheerleader when you need motivation, a coach when you need tough love or a nudge to step outside of your comfort zone, and a teacher when you are seeking to understand your patterns and cycles. I’m so glad you’re here and I look forward to working with you as you aspire to make choices that honor you and allow you to flourish in life.

Hannah Allison, MMFT Intern

Clinical Intern

Hi there! My name is Hannah, and my pronouns are (she/her). I’m originally from the San Francisco Bay Area and have lived in Nashville for the past 10 years. When I’m not at work or school, you can find me spending time outdoors hiking, grabbing Margarita’s with friends, writing songs, or playing out at a writer’s round in Nashville. Alongside my career as a therapist, I also have a career as a country singer/songwriter, so music is a big part of my life. I love writing, recording, and releasing new music whenever I can.
