Thank you for considering Rick Underwood Counseling to help you find the coping solutions or strategies you need.


I am a licensed professional counselor providing private mental health services in your area. As a psychotherapist, I conduct treatment and counseling options via private appointments in my offices, HIPAA-compliant video sessions, and on-site treatment at my farm for equine-assisted therapy.

My Qualifications include:

  • Doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in Clinical Counseling (Trevecca Nazarene University)

  • Master of Arts degree in Counseling (Trevecca Nazarene University)

  • Bachelor of Science (Florida International University)

  • Certificate in Sexual Addictions Treatment Therapy (MidAmerica University)

  • National Certified Counselor with advanced training in:

  1. Mental health diagnoses

  2. Marital therapy

  3. Compulsive behaviors

  4. Adolescent adjustments

  5. Compulsive sexual behaviors (Institute for Sexual Wholeness)

With offices in Brentwood and Nolensville, Tennessee, my services are convenient to clients in the greater metro Nashville area and throughout Middle Tennessee.  My equine-assisted sessions are at my farm in Nolensville.


My wife and I have three married, adult children and six grandchildren so I keenly understand the many challenges faced by families, couples, and teens. I am passionate about helping men, women, couples, and adolescents in all stages of life.


To ensure your counseling and therapy is beneficial, I am actively involved in the most current research of compulsive sexual behavior and recovery methodologies.


I look forward to helping you pursue your emotional and mental wellbeing!
