About Us

Cadey Phipps, LMFT

Licensed Therapist,

Founder & Clinical Director

*not currently accepting new clients*

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 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 so excited to work with you, wherever you are in your life journey!

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.

Payton Lindner, MMFT 

Masters of Marriage and Family Therapy 

Hi! I’m Payton, my pronoun are they/she! I was born and raised in Wisconsin but moved down to Tennessee mid-pandemic for graduate school. Of the many things that I love my puppies, art, and nature are at the top of that list. I value honestly, authenticity, and happiness and I spend my time pursuing those characteristics. When I first began my own therapy, I was facing equal parts change, adversity, and growth. Whatever brings you here, welcome. The thing that I love most about my job is the opportunity to create genuine connections with clients and make a difference in their lives. My philosophy is based on crafting the life that my clients feel is ideal, while meeting them where they are and approaching their lives with curiosity and inclusivity. Who or whatever you are, you are welcome here.

Pamela Hicks, MMFT

Masters of Marriage and Family Therapy

I’m Pamela and my pronouns are she/her. As a therapist, I believe that each person I sit with deserves compassion and unconditional positive regard regardless of what might compel them to meet with me. I aim to meet them where they are and to create an environment that will feel supportive and safe. I love my job and feel honored that what I do allows me to connect to others with compassionate care and curiosity. When I’m not working, one can find me spending time with my partner, my bonuses, my pups, my chosen family of friends, as well as my loving siblings and their beautiful families. I enjoy reading, traveling, the visual arts, learning new things, dancing, swimming in clear water, and being outside in nature. I am so excited to work with you, wherever you are in your life’s journey.

JD Benson, MMFT Intern

Clinical Intern

I’m glad you’re here. I’m JD, and my pronouns are she/her. I was born and raised in Missouri and have lived in Nashville for almost 19 years. My quality time is spent with my husband/partner, pre-teen daughter, family, friends, and my dog and two cats. I strive to simplify the complications of relationships and emotions and meet clients where they are. Therapy and self-exploration have been a vital part of my life and I look forward to sharing that process with you. My goal is to help you find emotional balance and learn to be present so you can live intentionally and meaningfully.

Caitlin Carlson, MMFT Intern

Clinical Intern & Administrative Assistant 

Hello! I’m Caitlin (she/her), and I grew up in North Idaho, right up in between Montana, Washington state, and Canada. The Rocky Mountains feel like home to me. 🙂 I came to Nashville at the end of 2019 and I love Music City! When I’m not at work or school you can find me on an afternoon stroll, trying a new restaurant, or booking my next weekend trip. I love spending time with friends, traveling, and all things outdoors. I am passionate about freedom, authenticity, and healing. It is a privilege to be a part of people’s journeys as they seek to find these things for their whole person – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Whoever you are and wherever you are on your journey, you are honored and accepted here.
