Founder & CEO

Emily Pardy is the Founder of Ready Nest Counseling in Nashville, TN. She is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and one of the first in the country to be Certified in Perinatal Mental Health. Her own journey into motherhood led her to helping couples and individuals transition successfully through the life stages of conception, pregnancy, postpartum, infertility or loss. 


A published author, Emily is also a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, Postpartum Support International, and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. She is a speaker and educator, dedicated to bridging the gap in prenatal and mental healthcare.  

"As a wife and mother of four, I’ve personally experienced the joys and challenges that life transitions can bring to various relationships. At Ready Nest Counseling, it's an honor to help families feel supported, learn healthy coping skills, and remind them they are not alone."
