Hi there, I'm Sharon, and I'm passionate about helping individuals rediscover their inner child and embark on a journey of healing the wounds from their past. As a compassionate and creative soul, I offer a unique approach to processing and addressing emotions. Through my work, I aim to provide a safe and nurturing space for you to explore your feelings, particularly those affected by addiction and co-dependency. I firmly believe that art, not in the traditional sense but as a personal expression of one's emotions, holds the key to authenticity and self-discovery. My focus is on the process rather than performance, making it a soulful and liberating experience I call "soul art." As part of my commitment to excellence, I am currently pursuing my certification in Creative Journaling Expressive Arts with the CJEAItm. This additional training allows me to integrate journaling and expressive art techniques into our sessions, offering you a dynamic and creative approach to healing and personal growth. If you're ready to embark on a transformative journey, exploring your emotions through the creative lens, I'm here to support and guide you every step of the way. Let's work together to nurture your inner child and empower you to lead a more fulfilling life.

My name is Circe Dunwoody. I am a license psychotherapist. In my psychotherapy practice I help couples and individuals to overcome life difficulties by using cognitive behavior therapy. Many couples and individuals feel overwhelmed by the desire to balance the high demands from work and family life. They report feelings of emptiness and loss of drive. Some report feeling of depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. Others contemplate divorce as a solution to decrease the pressure they are internalizing. You can contact me for help if you are experiencing some of the feelings I have mentioned above, and you are ready to make changes in your life. l work with couples and individuals in a safe and confidential platform environment. In life we all need support and understanding from others. Sometimes the best solution is to seek professional help. Having emotional support is extremely helpful. Relying on friends or family members is also helpful. However, you may not want to overwhelm them with problems. The most intelligent solution is seeking professional help.

Building great relationships is one of the most meaningful aspects of life. Hello perspective client! My name is Ruthie Doles and I hail from the central west coast of Florida. I am that rare Florida native who resides in the same area where I was born and raised. I’m in phase 2 of my work life. I retired from Pinellas County Government in 2017, where I worked as the manager of the county’s 911 Center for over 32 years. The daily human tragedies 911 dispatchers handle can be very stressful, but I found the personal stories of my employees much more compelling. My work as the 911 Center manager inspired me to become a therapist. I earned a BA in Interdisciplinary Social Sciences from University of South Florida in 2009 and obtained a Master’s in Social Work from the University of New England in 2016. I proudly became a licensed therapist in 2020, one good thing that occurred during the Covid pandemic. In my graduate program, I learned that all human behavior develops in the context of relationships. Family relationships are most significant to individual growth. The importance of healthy relationships in a successful life is often underestimated. The value of independence in our society overshadows our human need for connections. The quality of our family, friends, romantic, work and community connections impact our physical, mental and emotional health. Positive interactions promote feelings of connectedness and a sense of self-worth while negative encounters can lead to increased anxiety, a lack of self-confidence, and may even affect your thinking abilities. My primary practice approach is relational, using interventions that can help you understand the link between your thoughts, feelings and actions and the effect on your relationships. This will improve your ability to connect with others in ways that will enhance your life. I want to support you to have the loving, fulfilling, respectful relationships you deserve.

Hi. I'm Gloria, LMHC in the FL State. Are you going through depression, anxiety, long-lasting effects of trauma, adjustment to new cultures, or dealing with children and adolescents with behavioral problems? Are you part of a minority facing bigotry and adaptation to the main culture; or having relational problems preventing you from having the good life you deserve? In a few words, are you a human being who is struggling to be the best that you can be? If your answer is yes to one of these questions then, you are the client I want to serve. Together we can find the tools you need to grow and enhance your strengths; yes your strengths, those that you have even if you can't recognize them. I’ll work within an array of therapeutic approaches, always in the here and now, to familiarize yourself with your mind and its work because I’m convinced that, “ Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom." Depression, anxiety, losses, adjustments, trauma these all are inexhaustible sources of pain. We all, as humans, share them so, "Maybe that's the point of humanitarianism, it's in making the effort, it's in sending the message that you actually care." I care. Feel free to contact me.

Whether it is something you experience within yourself or with a partner, at work, at school, with friends, or with family members, we will work together to co-create ways to help you move forward toward solutions. With my education and experience as both a licensed clinical social worker and a licensed marriage and family therapist, I work from a systemic and relational lens.

Our sessions can be individual or with others, depending on what is most useful in the moment. My solution-oriented approach incorporates mindfulness and utilizes your unique gifts, strengths, resources, resiliencies, special qualities, and talents to open space for possibilities to emerge so we can co-construct your desired future.

I am a fully licensed therapist in the State of Florida. I have taught psychology at Princeton, Tulane, Cornell, and Harvard Medical School. We will spend most of our time creating solutions, instead of analyzing problems. So often, therapy gets bogged down in the endless exploration of problems. Problems are the results of behaviors that didn't work for you in the past. Solutions flow from changes that will work for you starting right now. Solutions make your life better.

Life can be hard and just "raggedy" at times. I know and I get it. For some, reaching out for help is the last thing you may want to do but I would love to walk with you on your journey to healing. Would you believe me if I told you that the answers you are seeking are already within you? I will merely be your guide and safe place to allow you to discover these answers. There is so much more in store for you versus the current narrative you have been rehearsing to yourself. I have a passion for “meeting people where they are” by providing crisis management, solution focused therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. I believe in providing quality services and working with those by addressing a wide range of issues including trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, poor self-esteem and stress management. I believe that therapy can assist one with identifying the root of recurring issues that challenges one’s well-being by developing healthy coping skills and gaining awareness.

Hello! My name is Alana. If you answer yes to any of the following 6 questions, you've come to the right place: 1) Are you feeling stressed, lost, sad, anxious, stuck, overwhelmed, or without direction? 2) Are you having relationship or marital problems? 3) Are you experiencing conflict with friends, family, neighbors and/or co-workers? 4) Are you having difficulty concentrating or accomplishing everyday tasks? 5) Are the activities you once loved, no longer enjoyable? 6) Are you having difficulty controlling your anger or regulating your emotions? In practicing for 30+ years, I’ve had the opportunity to help thousands of people just like you to find joy, contentment, enthusiasm, inspiration, love, peace, and purpose in their lives. I’ve met many of my clients at their lowest points and have always provided them with steadfast support as they tackled their toughest challenges and reached for their highest goals. My therapeutic methodology will be tailored specifically to you. You have your own distinct needs, different from anyone else’s, and, therefore, you deserve your own unique approach that will best suit your personality and your goals. I always seek to deliver the best service possible, and I provide each client with what they need to succeed. I look forward to working with you! I will be here with you every step of the way.

Sometimes people experience emotional problems (e.g., anxiety, depression), behavioral problems (e.g., overeating, smoking), or relationship problems (e.g., excessive arguing, poor communication) that interfere with their daily functioning. These difficulties result from the interaction of biological, learning, behavioral, and environmental factors, which influence patterns of thinking and behaving. Negative life events can contribute to the development of self-defeating patterns of thinking and behaving, which some people can have difficulty changing. In my work, which I have been practicing for 40 years, I help people identify these self-defeating patterns and develop strategies for dealing with them. I emphasize the importance of practicing these strategies consistently, with the goal of handling emotions more effectively and behaving in more responsible and healthy ways. I focus on life pattern changes with respect to relationships, depression, anxiety, anger control, impulse control, and stress management.
