I am Craig Lampkin and a Native New Yorker. I became a Marriage and Family Therapist because I enjoy processing with individuals and listening to personal journeys, ultimately finding a resolution. I went to a Performing Arts High School in New York City. This experience empowered me to have a unique therapeutic approach. By providing therapy through visual cues and using various therapeutic methods and modalities, individuals can learn new coping, decision-making, and problem-solving skills. I received my BA from Binghamton University in Psychology and MS from Florida State University in Child, Family, and Consumer Sciences, emphasizing Family Relations. I am a Florida Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I am the owner of Rothschild Counseling and Consulting, LLC in Tallahassee, Florida. With over 30 years of experience working with children and families. My scope of practice in Marriage and Family Counseling, Domestic Violence and Batterer's Intervention, Child Welfare, Child-Parent Psychotherapy, Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Parenting, Anger Management, Child Development, Individual and Group Counseling. I enjoy going to the gym, movies, socializing with friends/family, and singing in my free time. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I find this a unique challenge for couples and families. When two individuals enter a union, they bring a new relationship between their childhood experience and family life experiences. Marriage and Family Therapy's clinical journey brings together the unique qualities, challenges, and building a new foundation to create a new life together. I specialize in working with children and families in child welfare. I particularly enjoy working with young children and teens since these are some of the most challenging developmental years. Often, clients in this age group experience trauma and distress from systemic and familial patterns of behavior. Parenting is also a challenge. With all the daily stressors parents have in today's fast-paced life resulting In low parental capacities and protective factors. Working in trauma is challenging; when individuals experiencing domestic violence are batterers with low insight into their abuse, substance use has difficulty caring for themselves and others. I've worked with Human Trafficking victims and the LGBTQAI+ community. When individuals' basic needs, shelter, food, and clothing and not met, it's challenging to focus on their mental health challenges. Adolescents are a period of life with specific health and developmental needs and rights. It is also a time to develop knowledge and skills, learn to manage emotions and relationships, acquire attributes and abilities, and transition into adulthood. These are the years that mold our young population to blaze new trails and hand the torch to further our communities. I enjoy working with an individual with Developmental Disabilities. This unique population has an increase in resilience as they learn to understand the environment. I want to process with individuals through rehabilitation supports to ameliorate behavioral challenges. Collaboration with social and paid supports is pinnacle in this population's well-being to ensure stability while increasing coping, problem-solving, and decision-making skills. PLEASE NOTE: TO ENSURE APPOINTMENTS ARE STREAMLINED AND EASY TO MANAGE MY SCHEDULE, ALL APPOINTMENTS ARE ON THE HOUR. PLEASE BE MINDFUL THAT THE DAY AND TIME THAT YOU PICK FOR YOUR INTAKE WILL BE THE SAME DAY AND TIME FOR CONCURRENT THERAPY. IF ANY OTHER TIME SCHEDULED THE SESSION WILL BE CANCELLED. PLEASE TEXT ME FOR CLARIFICATION OR WE CAN DISCUSS THIS DURING THE FIRST SESSION.

There are so many messages that you’ve probably lived with growing up that don’t work for you anymore. Messages that make it hard to be present, to get things done, or make you feel like you're in "survival mode". Maybe you’re expected to move on from some hard times – or hard losses. Or maybe you’ve always had to be the “Perfect One”, the “Black Sheep” or the “Silent One” in your family. But there’s so much more to you than your struggles or the labels that have been placed on you. You don't have to live life feeling overwhelmed with negative thoughts, numbness, or expectations every day. You deserve to live authentically. You should speak to a counselor who recognizes that there is tremendous beauty to the person you are already. Your blood is of rich ancestry, heritage, triumphs and identity. I already know you have all the tools you need to live more mindfully. Every now and then we may all just need the support to see it. Let's talk!

Many of us navigate the world using the survival skills we learned in our childhood. We often grew up learning to view and interact with the world in a way that made us feel safe. Now, some of these survival styles hinder us from building deeper connections with others and ourselves. Our marriage becomes challenging, family interactions feel superficial, and we often feel the need to be vulnerable but don't out of fear of judgment. This stops us from connecting with others, establishing boundaries, and making better decisions.

As beautiful and wonderful as my life is now…This wasn’t always the case. I experienced devastating loss after losing my mother to Cancer at the tender age of 16 and became a mother myself just prior to my 18th birthday. And that's not it, I've lost jobs, money, friendships and went through major disappointment from unmet expectations from people... I lost myself....and I didn't know who I was outside of being a mother, an employee, a college student and a caretaker for several family members. I was emotionally drained, overwhelmed and confused about where my life was going. My personal journey of healing consisted of my faith, personal development books and workshops, therapy, supportive friends, and, later, clinical training in how to effectively process and handle emotional distress. You know those life events that come and threaten your very existence and sanity? My journey led me right into purpose..... My life’s purpose…… is to awaken, inspire, and teach women how to connect with their emotions and build a healthy new relationship with themselves. To awaken you to your potential, inspire you , give you hope and teach you a practical approach to healing from the inside out. My expertise…I received my clinical training from Capella University and earned a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. The most important takeaway from my formal education was the realization that building a trusting and genuine relationship with my clients and meeting them where they are is the best foundation for accelerating the healing process. I utilize a powerful intervention called Internal Family Systems (IFS), in which I am Level 2 trained and pursuing certification. IFS achieves mental wellness by teaching you how to understand the different parts of you and lead from your core inner self.

Hi. Welcome to my page. I am Oswaldo Castro but prefer to be called Oz. I am licensed mental health therapist with a plethora of experience. I first start my journey working in neurofeedback which has allowed me to work with a diverse population from children to seniors with issues with ADHD, autism, sleep disorder, anxiety disorders, depressed mood and a plethora of other neurodivergent individuals for about 7 years. My journey continues to working at a drug rehab facility where I worked with individuals with substance use disorder for about 5 years. My life then continues to work at a survivor's center where I worked with victims of domestic violence, violent crimes and grief for about 2 years. I also gained experience with the LGBTQIA+ population where I worked closely and ran groups with individuals of the trans experience. Moving forward, I have worked with suicidal children and adolescents that have been under a Baker Act which has given me experience in with family systems for about 4 years. If you like what you can read so far, reach out to me and schedule a session. Hope to hear from you so we can start working on those goals that you may have for yourself.

Thank you for taking the first step of courage and making yourself a priority today. Opening yourself up and being vulnerable can be a tremendous step to your healing process. As Brene Brown says, “Vulnerability is not winning or losing, it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome.” You are showing up for yourself today! Although the first steps can be overwhelming, I can walk with you and help guide you on the journey of healing and peace. I will always provide a safe space of acceptance and non-judgement for you to share your emotional pain, grow to love and be kind to yourself, and find the peace you deserve to heal. Remember that you are worthy and deserving of being free of the emotional pain you are experiencing. Be kind to yourself. **If you are viewing my profile for your child (3-17 years of age), I provide a calming and accepting space to assist with regulating your child's emotions. If your child is experiencing symptoms of anxiety, ADHD or difficulty focusing due to inattention or hyperactivity, or maybe your child is lacking motivation and seems more irritable and angrier than usual, I will teach your child the tools and strategies they need to cope with their challenges. Together, we can help your child feel happy again. Please view my website at worthytherapyservices.org

Stress, anger, depression, and anxiety can really impact your overall functioning and quality of life. Are you facing issues that you need help to work through? Do you have a life goal that you would like to achieve? Is it difficult to adjust to lifestyle changes? I recognize that our problems seldom exist in a bubble and that more often than not they are a direct reflection of our upbringing, past trauma, and/or our environment. Clients often cherish my ability to balance warmth and unconditional positive regard with challenging maladaptive beliefs. Investing in counseling can yield long-term rewards to influence healing, intimacy, and wholeness. Acquiring necessary tools for healthy growth can be invaluable to achieving an authenticity of self. We will endeavor to enhance your life through increased self-awareness, personal growth, and self-acceptance utilizing the modality most beneficial to you. Deciding to go to therapy may be a difficult decision. However, therapy can help you process complex emotions and strengthen your relationship with yourself and others. Therapy can also help you learn new ways of coping, especially during a pandemic. I welcome the opportunity to meet you and I'm honored by your consideration to allow me to journey with you.
