Cody Higgs of Cody Higgs Counseling
Cody Higgs is a Licensed Professional Counselor w/ Mental Health Service Provider designation located in Franklin, TN, just outside of Nashville. Before beginning private practice in January 2015, he worked in a school-based program with students age 5-21, ranging from inner city Nashville to rural southern Middle Tennessee. Through the years, Cody has honed in on his niche of working with adolescents and young adults struggling with anxiety. He also offers Walk and Talk therapy as part of linking benefits of physical activity and therapy. He spends his time outside the office training for ultra endurance running, obstacle course racing, and spending time with family and friends. Cody is the dad of the cutest 3-year-old you’ll ever see and the husband to an awesome industrial engineer who’s taught him how to plan and organize – both of which are helpful for private practice.
