At Aster Springs Outpatient – Nashville, we provide customized care that’s designed to meet each client’s specific needs and unique goals. We understand that people are not their diagnosis; they’re a combination of all that’s happened in their lives and their future journeys. Because of this, our treatment team partners with clients and their families to design treatment plans that provide a successful pathway to recovery. Treatment can include psychotherapy groups, individual and family therapy, nutrition education, meal planning, and support, medication management, and aftercare planning and assistance.
Our clinical team creates intensive treatment plans that allows each client to explore new ways to enjoy life. In a supportive and healing environment, we take a whole-person approach to treatment using evidence-based modalities, including acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), exposure and response prevention (ERP) therapy, experiential and expressive therapies (art, movement, music, yoga), and trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) that facilitate progress from clinical care towards independent self-care. Our program provides tailored psychotherapy groups that meet each week to teach our clients practical ways to handle life’s challenges, ensuring they address each client’s needs. Group-based therapy, individual psychotherapy, and family sessions ensure optimal progress in treatment and help improve each client’s quality of life.

“i had a really good experience here!! the providers, as well as the other clients, made me feel welcomed and supported. it became a safe place to talk about ed habits and obstacles i faced going through treatment. treatment in general is a difficult thing to go through alone, so i’m glad that i tried out group therapy. it made me feel like i wasn’t alone in how i was feeling. there is a lot of support and love within the selah house community : – ). also they are very supportive of the lgbtq+ community!! i felt extremely comfortable sharing about those sorts of things too. much love xoxo”
“The team exceeded my expectations in all manners. They are the utmost professionals who clearly care about the patients they treat. Willing to coordinate care, they initiate consultations with all members of the treatment team and family. The therapists are astute clinicians with a clear acumen for the field of eating disorders. Their understanding of the subtle and nuanced dynamics at play in patients is excellent and they can communicate this to both the patients they treat, their families as well as all members of the treatment team. In turn, information gathered from attending psychiatrists, psychologists and clinicians also served to inform their work with shared patients. It is true wrap-around service with a concierge feel. More than anything, the warmth and care provided allow for the patients to do the vulnerable and brave work needed. I cannot recommend enough.”
