My name is Daniel Barton and I come from a long line of “Bartons” that have cared for the mental health needs of Nashvillians for over 3 decades. My father is a psychiatrist and educator, and one of the three founders of Alive Hospice. My mother is a clinical social worker, marital therapist, who along with a few colleagues, was responsible for bringing the mediation movement to the state of Tennessee. My brother practices psychiatry in Nashville as well. I am honored to carry on this tradition by sitting on the frontier of a new and exciting chapter in psychiatry and being one of the few psychiatrists in the state to offer ketamine therapy for patients in the Nashville community and beyond.

The “House of Healing”
4414 Westlawn Drive has been an integral part of the Nashville Ketamine Center. Having been built in the 1920’s, it served as a single family residence for much of its life. Its initial resident grew old in the home until the upkeep eventually became too… much for her to tend to. At that time, a neighbor bought the property and began to use it as rental property. Over the years, the property had fallen into severe disrepair. It had no central air or heat, holes between the main floor and the basement, as well as between the ceiling and the attic space. There was plumbing that didn’t always work, cracked windows, and drafts that went unopposed from one side of the house to the other in the winter time. The contract for the property was agreed upon by Dr. Barton and its owner and written down on a napkin at the old Sylvan Park Cafe over breakfast and biscuits. That napkin served as the actual purchase agreement for the home. The property was renovated from its studs up (check out some of the pictures on the contact us page). Today, it serves as a house of healing for many of the people that come through its doors. Our wish is that it provides you with some hope and healing as well.
