Please do not send any emails with content related to your therapy sessions; emails are not secure or confidential. It might also be possible that Dr. Mario Lehenbauer-Baum is not able to read emails every day (e.g., if he is on vacation or on a conference), but he tries to answer emails within one or two work days.

If you call the phone number, please note that in most cases, Dr. Lehenbauer-Baum is not immediately available. You may leave a message on his confidential voice mail and your call will be returned as soon as possible, but it may take a day or two for non-urgent matters. If, for any number of unseen reasons, you do not hear from us, or Dr. Lehenbauer-Baum is unable to reach you, and you feel you cannot wait for a return call or if you feel unable to keep yourself safe, please: 1) contact Tennessee Mobile Crisis Services under 855-274-747 and you will be routed to a trained crisis specialist in your area, 2) go to your Local Hospital Emergency Room, or 3) call 911 and ask to speak to the mental health worker on call.
