Therapists Specializing in Adolescent Mental Health in Florida

Adolescence is a formative developmental phase of life full of rapid changes and unique challenges. Given the social, emotional, and physical changes occurring, it’s very normal to experience some degree of distress during this time. Therefore, it can be difficult to distinguish normal distress from more serious mental health concerns, particularly because adolescents can find it hard to communicate emotional and psychological difficulties. If symptoms such as persistent irritability, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, risk-taking behavior, or mood changes are negatively affecting an adolescents’ relationships or academic participation, seeking the opinion of a mental health professional may help.

A therapist will be able to discuss these symptoms and help choose the best fitting therapy type to help. Depending on the specific issues faced, therapists can help adolescents learn new skills for coping or communicating, deal with bullying, and examine thinking patterns in order to develop more helpful perspectives.

Below are therapists in Florida who specialize in working with young people and adolescents. Therapists have been vetted by the Zencare team for clinically rigorous, quality care. Visit their profiles to watch an introductory video and book a free initial call to find a good fit!

It has been in my heart to be a therapist ever since I was young. I truly find purpose in helping others and improving your quality of life. This is why I added to my practice with Yoga. I want to ensure that I have the tools to help you reach your goals.

If you are open and willing, you can make a change. The biggest reason I see people not moving forward with change is that facing trauma is extremely uncomfortable, and who can blame them. With me, I use Cognitive Processing Therapy. This means we don't go into detail about your trauma unless you want to. Our main goal is to figure out what is keeping you stuck, and help you get unstuck.

I think working as a team is the most important thing. I am not going to make you do anything you don't want to do. I may make suggestions you disagree with, and that's okay. This is your treatment and my goal is to give you the tools and challenge you to reach your goals. We are looking for small changes, as most change does not happen overnight. I have confidence that you can make that change.

The experience of pregnancy is life changing and many of us don't openly talk about it all - the scary, anxious, sad, frustrating, contradictory, and lonely feelings that may intrusively appear in your thoughts. You are not alone and you shouldn't have to learn to manage these thoughts and feelings alone. You are seen, your feelings are valid, and there is no shame in the struggle through this phase of life.

We all need our "village" to help us in this transition and with all the changes that come along with all phases of your pregnancy. Sometimes, our "village" has to be created and I am here to be a part of your "village" that will join you on your journey, holding space for your emotions, promoting you to see that your value is independent of your thoughts.

You are not alone, you are not to blame for the struggles that you may be feeling, and I am here to help you through the difficult journey. Lets schedule a free phone consultation to better understand how I may be of help. I can offer therapy in Spanish and English, weekend hours, and to better meet your needs telehealth or in-person services are offered.

Relationships can be very challenging and complicated both with others and ourselves. If you find yourself in a place questioning repetitive thoughts or feeling emotions that may be roadblocks for personal growth, therapy is an opportunity for you to explore and grow both personally and interpersonally. We are all made up of many parts and often times we have a couple parts of us, such as an angry part or anxious part, that we feel defined by. Often times these parts prevent us from living our truest and fullest selves. I promise to be fully present and committed in helping you understand these difficult parts and how they may be preventing you from feeling like yourself. I have a very interactive style and will work with you at a pace you are comfortable with to help you find peace and harmony with yourself and in your life.

Are you someone who finds themselves feeling overwhelmed, confused, or frustrated about their life? Do you sense you have little support from family and friends? Perhaps you're on edge and aren't able to relax? Or maybe that you can't remember a time when your world didn't run on chronic stress?

So you’ve noticed these feelings and have tried ways to challenge them. Start yoga, didn’t work. Read a self-help book suggested by a friend, didn’t work. Sought solace from your peers. They didn’t understand. Even Googled your symptoms. Yeah, that last one was a bad idea.

Maybe you even know what is causing you so much turmoil. Grief and loss, discrimination, infidelity, or trauma.

If you find yourself saying yes to any of the above, then you're on the right Zencare profile.

Our clinicians are equipped with the clinical tools to assist you with achieving your goals, overcoming your struggles, and finding the most authentic ways for you to live your life. They will teach you skills to manage your feelings, thoughts, and actions. They will work with you to find your footing in a world that always feels off-kilter.

The search for a therapist often begins when you hear yourself say things like: "My life is a mess.", "I want the pain to go way”, "No one understands me", etc. Whatever bought you to this point to seek help doesn't matter. What matters is that you want to feel better, and live your best life. As a therapist, I am here to listen and support you as you find the answers. I am not there to give them to you, or to judge you. My success in treating patients is founded in the idea that all therapeutic relationships are a partnership of patient and clinician working together to restore the body and mind to health.

Identifying a rapport early on is important in proceeding with, and succeeding in treatment. A good therapeutic relationship is key. I know my areas of expertise and want to be sure I can provide the best care to you. Therapy is a very personal experience, and it is important to me that both you and I feel we are a good match. To make everyone more comfortable, I require a fifteen-minute consultation before booking an appointment.

Hi! I’m a person-centered, strength-based therapist who believes that every individual is an expert in his/her/their own life. I help people uncover and use their own strengths to overcome obstacles and grow into their best selves. I’m passionate about validating individuals’ unique experiences while empowering them to find meaning and purpose in all areas of their lives.

I think that therapy can be so much more than a one-sided conversation! I believe it’s essential for clients to feel comfortable, and I strive to offer a relaxed, safe environment in which you can fully express yourself. Please tell me if something isn’t working for you! I’m dedicated to being collaborative, real, and honest – allowing, and even encouraging, humor to build our relationship and work through issues.

If you’re interested in learning more about me and seeing if we would be a good fit, please feel free to reach out. I look forward to meeting you!
