Dr. Jerome Burt

Meet Jerome


Hey now, I’m Jerome!

I have a PhD in clinical psychology and do traditional therapy at my Nashville practice.

But here’s what you really need to know about me: I love helping people become their best selves.

I live and breathe this work. And if you want to know my truth, it doesn’t even feel like work. Because there is nothing so beautiful to me as watching you evolve as you learn to own your truth and start really connecting with your community — everyone from your partner to the produce guy at Whole Foods.

And I know that if you’re ready to grow, if you’re ready to shed some of those heavy layers you’ve been hiding your bright, shiny self under, we are going be great together.

I cut through the muck—fast. We won’t waste any time in getting you where you want to be. But don’t worry: even though this work is challenging, we’ll have a whole lot of fun along the way.

I know how amazing you are. Really, I do. Over the past decade, I’ve helped thousands of people just like you — stressed out, burned out, bummed out — start to live the kind of lives they’ve only dreamed about. It still thrills me every time.

I can’t wait to share this intimate, powerful work with you.

Ready to get real?
