Jim Schettler, LMFT, CLC, Marriage & Family Therapist in Nashville
I am passionate about helping people overcome, heal, and succeed. With 20+ years of experience I have helped many clients to uncover their true self, overcome significant obstacles, and live a meaningful life consistent with their values and goals. I tailor my therapy by using the most effective approach to fit the individual/circumstances. I can help you develop tools for handling situations, emotions, and relationships effectively. I believe in helping people live a balanced life where they create balance mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. The result? Greater clarity, serenity, joy, purpose, and a better relationship with self and others.
I offer a safe, comfortable, and confidential environment for people to experience personal growth and healing. Though I have worked with a multitude of issues, I specialize in helping people overcome anxiety, depression, life transitions, eating disorders, chemical and sexual addictions, trauma and relationship difficulties.
If therapy could help you find what you're looking for in life, don't you owe it to yourself to try it? You're worth it! I would value the chance to help you get the most out of your life today!
