I'd first like to recognize the strength it has taken to reach this stage in your growth and healing. Seeking assistance can often be an overwhelming task, but you're on the right path! I have had the privilege of accompanying people on their path towards "something better" for roughly ten years, of which the last four have been spent as an independently practicing Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I am relaxed, direct, and I strive to make every moment within our work together as productive as possible. I'm accessible and easygoing. I also happen to think that I'm pretty funny, so at least I have that going for me!

My name is Eric Lopez. I am fluent in both English and Spanish. I studied psychology at the University of Florida and earned my Masters of Counseling Psychology from Trinity International University. I am client centered in my approach to therapy and believe empathy and understanding are key to the therapeutic relationship. Having over 15 years of counseling in the state of Florida, over the years I have worked with people suffering from depression, anxiety, addictions, trauma, abuse, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, homelessness, and juvenile delinquency issues. The clients I have worked with have been between the ages of 5 and 85 from all races, ethnicities, cultures, backgrounds, political beliefs, and sexual orientations. The key to counseling and the client receiving true help, in my opinion, is having an open, empathetic, and trusting therapeutic relationship in which the client feels safe, heard and understood. With the client being the expert on their life, therapist and client together can bring clarity to thoughts, emotions, values, priorities, situations, and decisions. I integrate cognitive, behavioral, motivational interviewing, solution focused, existential and other approaches into counseling that is tailored to the client's needs and personality. Helping clients overcome problems and function at their best is my goal and honor. I hold a current License for Mental Health Counseling (LMHC) in the state of Florida.

My mission is to empower them with coping skills and strategies that allow them to embrace a life of recovery and resilience. As a therapist, I focus on guiding patients towards building essential skills to overcome their challenges.

Hi, thanks for stopping by! I am no stranger to the challenges of change. As an 11-year-old child, I left my native Havana, Cuba with my family for a new life in Miami, Florida. Being an introverted person and speaking English as a second language, I still decided to pursue my dream of becoming a mental health professional. Then, as an early student of Psychology at Florida International University, I changed majors to obtain a Master in Social Work degree instead, from the same institution; which better aligned with my focus on a more practical approach to mental health. Acceptance of change continued on as a common theme in my adult life, throughout growing into roles such as wife, mother, and therapist. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker I hope to work in my private practice primarily with adult clients. I have worked in the past with clients dealing with Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Substance Abuse, behavioral issues, trauma, life transitions, grief, and personal development; facilitating individual, couples, group, and family therapy. I consider myself a change facilitator, being passionate about supporting clients through growth at any stage in their life, towards evolution and self-actualization.
