COUNSELING

We believe there are many seasons in life in which Biblical Counseling can play a vital role in continued growth a maturity of an individual or family. At Ethos Church, we are committed to helping our church family grow deeper in all facets of the Christian journey. We are pleased to provide connections to godly counseling through the following people and counseling centers. 

Harpeth Hills Counseling Center

The counseling services are offered to the Harpeth Hills church family, as well as the community at large. While individual therapy is provided for matters such as anxiety or depression, a major focus for the Center is that of “relationships.” This includes preparation for marriage, marital therapy, divorce adjustment, stepfamily adjustment and parent-child relationships. The Counseling Center is open Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Appointments can be scheduled by calling 615-690-4661.If appointments need to be canceled, clients are encouraged to call 24 hours prior to their scheduled time in order to make the necessary changes. The customary fee for counseling is $85 for an initial evaluation and $85 for each hourly counseling session. While the counseling center does not file insurance, clients are free to file their own insurance to assist in paying for counseling. Financial assistance is available to Ethos Church Family Members.

Andy Melton: MS, LPC-MHSP

Sometimes we need a safe place to go where we can be ourselves and say anything.  At times we simply need to be understood and talk things out with someone who is not part of our family or friend circles, someone with the training and skills to help us navigate through difficult thoughts and emotions, relationships, work, and faith.

"When you're ready, I'd be glad to sit down with you to talk through your story and discuss strategies and solutions to move forward.  My experience includes over 15 years training and practice, accountability through state licensure and professional associations, teaching and supervision of novice counselors, and a specialized focus on anxiety and couple & family relationships." — Andy

Andy, his wife, and kids are members of the Ethos family.  He is a Licensed Professional Counselor.  Rates: $50-$120.  Most insurances accepted.  Financial assistance provided based on need.  Andy's office is located in the Inglewood area of East Nashville.
