Welcome! My name is Dr. Mario Lehenbauer-Baum. As a Licensed Psychologist, I provide services at two private practice locations in Nashville (on Mondays) and Franklin (Tuesday to Friday).

Probably, there is a reason why you are looking for a psychologist. Too often, people have a very harsh inner critical voice. They feel stuck with fears, anxieties, worries, negative experiences in the past, or feelings of low self-esteem and deficiency and need help to have a positive perception and acceptance of themselves, to understand, express and change emotions to be more kind to themselves and other people. By providing acceptance, unconditional positive regard and a compassionate understanding for clients, it is my passion to assist and mentor individuals on their unique paths of personal change and growth to live a more authentic life, and to change your inner critical voice to a more helpful and kind one.

One of my strengths is my analytical approach to issues; step by step, I can help you explore and change negative mindsets. I was educated and trained in Vienna, Austria (the birth place of modern psychotherapy!) and Nashville, Tennessee; my counseling and assessment services are guided by a strong commitment to scientific research.

My specialty areas include primarily anxieties and stress management, adult ADHD, general life coaching and mentoring, and men’s issues. However, I also work with relationship issues and sexuality (couples, family conflicts, LGBTQ+ concerns).

Please find more information about fees and other questions you might have on my FAQ page, and feel free to contact me with email or phone to schedule a session.

About Thrive in Life Counseling and Therapy LLC:

I am still involved in continuing research and emerging trends of therapy (such as internet addiction, anxiety disorders and internet gaming addiction); I present findings nationally and internationally. I am also an educator to graduate and doctorate students who are pursuing their goal of becoming licensed psychologists themselves.

I strive to bridge the gap between research and psychological practice; therefore, Thrive in Life Counseling and Therapy LLC also provides continuing education services for Licensed Psychologists and other mental health professionals (approved by the American Psychological Association). Please find more information about continuing education HERE.
