Eri Cela is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist located in Miami, FL. Eri works with individuals and couples who would like to find a greater sense of joy, purpose, and balance in their lives. Many of his clients face challenges relating to anxiety or depression. These mental health conditions may be the result of a major relationship conflict - or the root cause of interpersonal issues. Eri helps clients to overcome the difficult emotions that hinder their ability to be present. This is particularly helpful in times of great change and life transition.
Eri draws from his experience growing up in Albania and immigrating to the United States when working with clients, deeply understanding the profound impact that love and resilience can have on a person’s life. He invites clients to talk openly about who they are, how they feel, and what stands in the way of their happiness. Through learning about his clients’ lives, Eri offers different perspectives that can be helpful for clients to consider. Clients learn about topics like attachment theory, humanistic approaches, and the mind body connection. Eri encourages clients to assess how their emotions impact their bodies, and to find ways to relax physically while they work on their mental health. Clients examine their motivations, especially for big decisions and throughout transitions, with Eri’s empathetic support.
