Insight Counseling Centers exists to restore lives to wholeness - mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
To accomplish this important work we seek to…
- Provide excellent professionally licensed psychotherapy to any individual, couple or family in our community.
- Offer help and healing from a heart of compassion and personal faith that accepts and respects the beliefs of every individual with whom we work.
- Raise and provide financial support to help those who cannot otherwise afford care.
Serving Middle Tennessee since 1985
Insight Counseling Centers, formerly known as the Pastoral Counseling Centers of Tennessee, Inc., was formed in 1985 when a handful of visionary people from Vine Street Christian Church brought to fruition their dream of providing spiritually informed and psychologically sound counseling for the Nashville area. Now over 35 years later, we have grown to ten centers throughout Middle Tennessee and provide around 7,000 hours of counseling to individuals, couples, and families every year. In Spring of 2020, we added telehealth services to our counseling program and now serve clients in counties across the state of Tennessee.
In addition to counseling, we provide professional training opportunities and mental health awareness education.

Our therapists are specially trained and equipped to address spiritual concerns as well as mental and emotional issues. Spiritually-integrated psychotherapy is an interfaith discipline. Insight Counseling Centers welcomes and accepts clients and therapists of all faith traditions and those who claim no faith.
