Seeking counseling can make a person nervous of what to expect and we are here to make your experience both pleasant and rewarding. Whether you are coming in for individual counseling or as a couple, our goal is to understand how you are feeling, identify areas of focus and provide tools and coping skills. Some of our primary areas include communicating feelings and needs, de-escalation techniques and active listening skills. Between sessions, assignments are defined to help you practice in your everyday life what you have just learned.
You are here because you want to improve certain aspects of yourself or your relationships, counseling can help reduce stress and depression and it's a place to share how you feel and work towards goals you want to achieve. There is absolutely no judgement in counseling, many of us have gone through similar things and are here to provide help and guidance with empathy.
We specialize in couples through several different aspects that include talk therapy, solution focused therapy, effective communication, conflict resolution, reducing defensiveness and/or criticism We help to identify your love languages and that of your partner, underlying triggers and finally wants and needs. Let's work together in bringing back the joy that helped you fall in love.
As the the owner of LMC, I am trained in Gottman Level 3 for couples. Gottman is well known in our industry as one of the best therapies for couples. I also practice Solution Focused Therapy which can reduce tension and increase partner satisfaction and intimacy, making a difference in a short amount of time
Individually we can explore your needs and goals and work towards them. Lately, anxiety has been on the increase after Covid which has impacted many due to isolation and worry of the unknown. We can help reduce anxiety with EMDR therapy and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) to change one's inner thoughts to a “can do” attitude.
We are over ten Family Therapists that provide caring, empathy and compassion in the Lake Mary area treating and helping everyone we can. At Lake Mary Counseling, therapy can be valuable before marriage, during marriage, or when considering separation. Counseling can help you identify what you feel and why you feel that way to make changes if needed or enforce your boundaries.

(Getting the proper diagnosis is crucial in improving symptoms like Bipolar which can take up to 11 years to be correctly diagnosed by a clinician. There's mania or anger and depression.Some people have both ADHD and Bipolar, if ADHD is treated before the mood is stabilized it can lead to mania which can cause impulsivity and problems sleeping. Both can run in the families. I'm passionate to support you and for you to feel heard with your medication provider if needed so you can finally get on the right meds. I don't believe in giving up. How you feel can be improved.
