Supervision, Consultation & Coaching

Hi! I’m so glad you’ve found your way here and I hope to connect with you soon! Melanie Reese, LMFT, CCTP

Statement of Inclusivity

The space I create is welcoming and accepting of those of diverse ethnicities, genders and abilities. I welcome all ranges of social, financial, religious and political standings. We respect and value each other’s differences and strive to practice tolerance and inclusivity.

The intention of this space is to serve healing practitioners and the Nashville community through teaching, supporting and promoting growth and healing. We engage in this space with full respect for all of you, each other and ourselves.


Individual Supervision

PLEASE NOTE: I do not have any current openings for Individual Supervision. I would love to have you join my group!

Individual Supervision can be completed individually or with a partner. I offer online or in-person sessions for individual supervision. If you know someone who is also looking for a supervision partner, feel free to have them contact me as well!
Individual Supervision: We meet the 2nd & 3rd Wednesday of the month, scheduled in two (2) clinical hour blocks (1.5 hours on the clock).
Individual Supervision for Licensure: $85 per clinical hour. If you are working with a partner, you may split the fee.

Group Supervision

Group supervision is a great way to connect with other therapists and get feedback from other clinicians with new perspectives. The group is trauma-informed and would be a great fit for those interested in holistic, brain-body approaches to doing therapy with clients. Email to be added to our RSVP email that goes out the week before we meet. We limit the group to 6 participants in order to meet the needs of the group members.
Group Supervision and Consultation: We meet the 1st Wednesday of the month 9:30am-12:30pm. This is four (4) clinical hours (3 hours on the clock). Hours can be rounded when calculating supervision (45 min can be rounded to 1 clinical hour).
Group Supervision for Licensure: $25 per clinical hour.

Supervision often includes:

  • Staffing cases
  • Person of the Therapist Issues
  • Education (on models, theories, interventions, etc.)
  • Demos of modalities
  • How to start a practice and other business related issues
  • Studying for the MFT exam
  • Mindfulness & Meditation and somatic work
  • And whatever else you need to bring to the supervision session for that day!

Client Case Consultations

Most of our clients have experienced trauma at some point in their lives, but that may not be the reason they originally came to therapy. As we move into deeper work, their trauma may surface and we don’t feel equipped to support the client. Often times this is when the client is referred to another practitioner. If we are striving for a client-centered, trauma-informed approach, I believe supporting the therapist so that they can continue to work with their client may be a better option. Loosing a therapist in this way can be traumatizing and starting over with a new therapist can create stagnation in the healing process.

I offer support to practitioners in the helping fields; This could be therapists, coaches, doctors, nurse practitioners, energy workers, body workers, spiritual guides/leaders, etc needing support navigating client’s trauma. Think of me as another tool in your toolbox to help you and your client reach your therapeutic goals!

Case Consultation for Practitioners in the Helping Field: $200 per hour and can be scheduled in 30 min increments. (Packages Available)

Business Coaching

My dad always said, “Love what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life.” Great advice and I’m doing just that! When I first started a private practice over 10 years ago, I had no idea what I was doing! I made lots of mistakes and learned lots of lessons along the way. No one really tells you that when you work for yourself, you’re an accountant, business developer, admin assistant, marketer…and, oh yeah, a therapist!

What’s My Experience? As the owner of Trauma Therapy of Nashville, I have ran a successful private & group practice for almost 10 years! I also co-created Integrative Therapy of Nashville, a collective network of holistic practitioners with a supportive environment to learn and work with like-minded clinicians. I have consulted and supported some of the owners of well-known practices in Nashville as they were getting started!

I love helping others explore what they love and creating a way for them to share that with others.

I can help with things such as:

  • Developing a niche
  • Creating and designing a website (I’ve built 3!)
  • Getting client referrals
  • Quarterly taxes
  • Marketing
  • Office design & decor
  • and so much more!

Business Coaching: $200 per hour and can be scheduled in 30 min increments. (Packages Available)
