Counseling Services. The Just Us program now offers counseling for youth and families seeking assistance related to gender identity and/or sexual orientation. We offer group, family, and individual counseling, as well as referrals to medical providers, legal assistance, and other providers as needed. Learn more about our counseling group at Pride Posse.

***Special Note about Fall 2018*** the therapist for Just Us is scheduled be out on parental leave for August, September, and October 2018, with a return planned for mid-November. If you have questions about counseling services or would like to be added to our wait list for services, please contact Cheryl Mendez at or 615-327-4455.

Intake Meeting with the Therapist and a Parent/Guardian. The first step is an intake meeting with the therapist, youth, and a parent or guardian. This helps all parties get to know each other a little bit, and to see if Oasis services will be a good fit. It also gives everyone a chance to ask questions, and make sure they know what to expect. During this time, the therapist will also review important information about limits to confidentiality, and Oasis counseling procedures.

Free Services. Oasis recognizes that mental health care isn’t always a budgeted expense, and so we are committed to offering quality counseling services free of charge. We do not bill insurance.

Contact: Dan Dumont, LMSW at (615) 983-6884 or to get more information or to schedule an intake meeting. Please know that there is sometimes a wait list for services, depending on the availability of the counselor and the family.
