I am the wife of a Retired Combat Veteran and a mother to four beautiful children. I understand the complexities of being separated from your spouse for extended periods and feeling alone in the relationship and raising the children. Even the most well-prepared and successful person can find themselves wondering how things became so complicated, messy, or challenging, and feel at a loss when it comes to what to do to put the pieces back together. People have been shaped and molded by their past experiences, both good and bad. Often, people feel drawn to focus on the bad experiences, leading to pain and struggles of many kinds.

Hi, I would like to start with a personal quote I came up with working in addiction treatment for many years. "Fate is for people who fail to take action. Destiny is for people who refuse to accept their failures as fate." Me Simply put, I would be honored and privileged to be a part of your healing journey. I consider myself to be a therapist who is qualified both because of education and utilization of evidence based treatments; and the experiential learning and continued growth of my own life path.

Behind the appearance of separation is one unified field of wholeness. Here the seer and the scenery are one." Deepak Chopra

I want to start by connecting with you in a safe space. I believe growth comes from the courage to face its truth and challenging circumstances in a safe and supportive environment. My role as a therapist is to respect your life experiences and explore the support you need for individual internal growth. My therapy approach provides unique ways to identify what changes you want to embrace and assist you in tapping into your inner strength. My intrinsic style is a genuine humanistic approach, and I encourage clients to take advantage of their ideas through individual reorientation. I want my client to visualize that their therapist has a big flashlight so they can navigate their potential to have a more balanced approach in their everyday life.

I was in the United States Marine Corps from 1998-2003 and during this time I learned a great deal about myself and became more culturally diverse. During my third year of service, I was injured at Officers Candidate School and realized that I needed to develop my counseling skills, so I worked with an agency that counseled teens regarding their addiction. I have been in the social services field for the past twenty years and have been licensed for the past 10 years. When I got out of the Marines in 2003, I went home to North Carolina and my father passed away three days later unexpectedly so, I needed a job and I was able to use my previous years working with teens and became a supervisor at Sipes Orchard Home took in unwanted children from parents, Level II and Level IV agencies, and the Department of Children and Families. After being here at this facility for two years I left as they weren't following the Medicaid standards. I left the agency and went to work for The Cognitive Connection as the Prevention Supervisor providing preventive services for teens and was part of the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) providing groups to adults. I worked with Cognitive Connection for three years and left to go to Pensacola, Florida because I had heard they were starting a MSW program. I felt hopeful as I knew getting my master’s in social work would change my life forever. After I finished the MSW program I immediately started working for Lakeview Services in Adult Outpatient Community Mental Health and then worked in the Drug Court program. I stayed here for three years until I got a job with the DoD in Oklahoma because my wife was trying to get a federal job, so I moved to support her and my family. While working with the DoD I was able to get my supervision for licensing, created an anger management program for the DoD, and stayed until my LCSW license was finalized in December of 2013. When I came back to Florida I worked for Volunteers of America for a couple of years until a federal job opened at Veterans Affairs in Pensacola, FL, in August of 2016. I have been licensed in Florida for the past 10 years, recently became licensed in Texas and Oklahoma. I have some clients who are in therapy with me for several weeks to several months depending on their individual needs. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

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.

Are you experiencing stress, worry, racing thoughts, impaired sleep, feeling on edge, heart racing, nightmares, or/and flashbacks? Do you replay moments in your head and feel hopeless? Maybe you’re feeling like you are not quite yourself; like you aren’t living your healthiest, happiest and most well-functioning life. My specialty is helping clients uncover the root of their problems and then empower them with the skills necessary to regain a healthier sense of control in those areas. Let me help you on this journey! Imagine yourself empowered, as we find recurring themes and self-defeating patterns. You will discover ways to overcome sadness, fear and other emotional obstacles. Problems, once confronted, lead to insights and newfound strength, self-acceptance and freedom. My advanced training is in EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) which is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from anxiety, trauma and PTSD symptoms. My experience and training help us to quickly identify key issues, unconscious factors and ways to resolve them. My primary focus is on helping individuals find balance and peace after experiencing trauma, navigating through life transitions, unhealthy relationships, or loss and grief. I can work with you to develop healthy coping skills and gain insight. I love to help others feel at peace and whole again. If there is one thing that I would like for you to know is that the most crucial part of therapy is to find a therapist that you trust. My priority is to create a genuine connection with my clients by creating a safe and non-judgmental space for them.

My name is Rachel Francis and I have been a behavioral health professional for over 25 years. I have successfully worked as a professional therapist for agencies to include 3AM Counseling Services, Children and Families Services, the US Military (both Army and Airforce), Hospice Care, and Hospital In-Patient Units. I use a client-centered approach to reduce patient symptomology from mental health issues like Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Grief and Loss, and Life Transitions. My patients have expressed that one of the benefits of a virtual platform is that it reduces access barriers to healing. Stress can cause disturbances in both social and professional relationships, physical health, mental health and sleep patterns. Join me on the journey to a better quality of life.

Hi there. Finding a clinician to help you in your journey to feeling well again can sometimes feel overwhelming. I am down to earth and speak to people with compassion, respect, and dignity. I focus on techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. I truly believe that change is possible when we are willing to face challenges and difficulties head on. It can also be difficult to do that alone, which is where I fit in. It is very important to get to know you from the first session to see if this will be a good fit. My main focuses are on the treatment of Depression, Anxiety, Addiction, ADHD, Grief and guiding parents who are navigating a diagnosis for their children. I work with people to teach them strategies to empower themselves and make lasting changes.

Hello! I'm Kelly! Do you feel your past life experiences weigh you down like an anchor and it is hard to "be normal?" Are these memories flooding your day-to-day experiences preventing you from feeling joy and living in the here and now? Is it challenging to see the real you and believe in your worth?

Relationships are important. They can bring us joy, and connection, and opportunities to grow. You talk to friends and loved ones, you spend time with them, and you likely do caring things for them. And, how much time do you spend deepening your relationship with yourself? Do you pay attention to how you talk to yourself, how you spend time with yourself, how you care for your Self? It is my experience both personally and professionally that when we spend time working on our relationship with Self, not only do we become happier, and more peaceful internally- our external relationships with others improve as well. Would you like to work on your relationship with yourself? Let’s do it!

Imagine a life where it wasn't a struggle to get out of bed. A life where you feel confident in your own skin. You trust and love yourself for who you are, not who others want you to be. Your relationships are working and you are capable of setting healthy boundaries. Right now, life may not look anything like that. You may feel depressed, anxious, worthless, lost, or even stuck. I'm Kendra, a Licensed Therapist, and I help women who struggle with boundary setting, self-love and relationship issues. If you're a woman struggling with self-esteem, difficulty establishing healthy boundaries within your relationships, or work-life balance, then you're in the right place.
