Sarah Gray, MMFT

Masters of Marriage and Family Therapy


Hello! I’m Sarah, and my pronouns are she/her. As a therapist, I love helping clients answer big life questions about their identities, values, and the stories that have shaped them. Our culture likes to encourage black-and-white thinking, but the beauty of our complex selves is that multiple things can be true at once. You can long to be a parent and still be terrified of this big change. You can have experienced harm from your church and still yearn for comfort in something bigger than yourself. Your relational trauma may continue to cause painful feelings, and yet you bravely continue seeking connection with others. In our therapeutic work together, we will link arms and explore these many parts of you as we allow all of these truths to be present at once, taking what fits for you and your well-being, while leaving behind what no longer serves you.
When I’m not in session, you can usually find me at home or spending time outside. I’m a Nashville native and deeply love our parks, greenways, lakes, and rivers. I’m married to my college sweetheart, and we have one precious son. The background music to my life is often paws galloping as a puppy and black cat chase each other through the house, and the squealing giggles of my toddler as he tries to keep up. I read every day, love sad songs, and usually have a podcast recommendation for any topic we discuss in therapy. I have experienced my own losses and trauma, and I know how scary it can be to address these things. I’ve spent many hours as a client myself, and I’ve been shaped and guided by some truly wonderful therapists and mentors. It’s one of the joys in my life that I now get to help others the same way. Whether you’re here to process life transitions, trauma, relationships, or just the hard parts of being human, I’m so honored to be in your corner.



Depending on the day and topic, our sessions may look a few ways. Sometimes, we’ll just talk, ask each other questions, explore the past, voice hopes and fears for the future, tell stories, and laugh or cry (often both). We may sit in the quiet, and tune into our bodies. We may use movement, visualization, or meditation. We may utilize more structured techniques like EMDR when working with deeply rooted trauma. Whatever the day brings, you will always have a voice in my room, and I will honor whatever you need or don’t need that day.

As far as my special interests go, as a mom, I am passionate about working with those hoping to experience parenthood or those in the thick of it. I love providing support and guidance to prenatal and postpartum folks during one of the most transformative phases of their lives. I have a deep understanding of the unique challenges and emotions that accompany pregnancy, childbirth, loss, and early parenthood. I’m dedicated to creating a safe and nurturing space for you to explore your feelings, address any concerns or anxieties, and develop coping strategies. Together, we will grieve losses, celebrate the milestones, and find ways you can continue to fill your cup. My goal is to empower you to navigate this significant life transition with confidence and resilience, as you cultivate your unique meaning of parenthood.


I am a Masters level Marriage and Family Therapist working toward licensure under the supervision of Cadey Phipps, LMFT (license #1348). I received my undergraduate degree in Gender/Women Studies with a Minor in Psychology from the University of Tennessee. This is where I first discovered my passion for exploring our stories through a systemic lens. I then received my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Trevecca Nazarene University, where I mainly focused on helping adult women explore identity, values, trauma, and life transitions. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which is a type of therapy used to help people who have experienced traumatic events. This technique aims to help the brain process the traumatic memories more healthily and can lead to decreased symptoms of trauma and improved overall well-being. I’m an avid learner and regularly receive trainings on various approaches and use self-study resources to be as eclectic of a practitioner as I can. I often cultivate in my sessions the following approaches: Internal Family Systems, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, and various somatic techniques, just to name a few.
