Professional statement

Dominique Barritt is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Downtown Orlando. She works with adults as individuals or couples. Many of Dominique’s clients come in to address trauma, dissociation, gender identity, attachment wounds, and PTSD. Dominique is particularly passionate about serving people battling with Complex PTSD and Dissociative Disorders, adults working to develop and maintain healthy emotional boundaries with others, and members of the LGBTQIA+ community. She also have advanced training in the area of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), Gender Dysphoria, and Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD).

Dominique is a Certified EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapist and a Certified Sex Therapist. She is also trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Interpersonal Process Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). The integration of these approaches uses the brain's natural processing system to reduce the reactionary response to past traumatic events, while improving the internal communication of all parts of oneself. In session, Dominique teaches breathing exercises and grounding tools that can be practiced in stressful situations outside of session. This approach supports clients to feel more present and connected, while discovering a whole and satisfying sense of self.

Dominique's style is warm, engaging, and non-judgmental. When clients first start therapy, she works to develop an empathic and compassionate environment, in which clients feel safe to explore their difficult histories and create meaningful change for themselves.

Dominique received her MA from the University of North Florida. She has worked at local community agencies, serving survivors of trauma, neglect, and interpersonal violence. Outside of private practice, She enjoys music, museums, true crime books, and sharing good food and better conversation with her favorite people. Dominique offers both in-person therapy at her office on East Concord Street and remote therapy sessions through a HIPAA-compliant platform.


Message to clients

Exploring and discovering who we are, how we came to be, and all we still can be, is at the heart of all self-worth and self-acceptance. My therapeutic philosophy stems from my heartfelt belief that you deserve an opportunity to process and work through the challenges life has handed you, at your own pace, and with someone unafraid of going wherever the journey may lead. It is my goal to create this type of compassionate and patient space for you. I am committed to helping you reach your full potential and to see you succeed in life, on your own terms.

I enjoy collaborating with each client to help them achieve their personal goals. I focus on assisting those who are struggling to acknowledge, control, or express their emotions in a healthy and appropriate way. This may be due to past traumatic experiences or an upbringing that failed to include an emphasis on emotional resiliency. That resiliency lives inside you, and simply needs the time and space to grow. Feeling whole, connected, and valuable is what I will work to help you develop in yourself.

Throughout the therapeutic process, I am committed to providing confidential, knowledgeable, and supportive therapy that is personalized, integrative, and encouraging. I respect that this may be a challenging step for you to take. But as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase just take the first step."
