Therapists Specializing in Domestic Violence in Florida

Domestic violence involves any type of physical, sexual, or emotional abuse within a relationship or family. Domestic violence can happen to anyone, and it often has a huge impact on the mental and physical health of those who experience it. People who are subjected to, under the threat of, or have witnessed domestic violence may struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma symptoms, and/or substance abuse.

If you or someone you know is at risk of harm, safety is the first priority. Having the support of a trusted therapist during the process of planning how to leave can be of great benefit. Once you are safe, therapy can help you heal from the psychological effects of domestic violence. Though people react in different ways when faced with stressful and potentially dangerous situations, many providers take a trauma-informed approach to therapy.

The therapists in Florida below can help you work through your experiences, develop coping strategies, and heal. Therapists have been vetted by the Zencare team for their expertise in domestic violence and the provision of clinically rigorous, quality care.

I work at the intersection of psychology, education and development to help professionals in business, healthcare, the arts & education, university students, and emerging adults. I have helped clients make transitions to mindfully develop skill sets that reclaim their authenticity, reduce pain, suffering and self-injurious behavior, overcome trauma, cope with physical illness, strengthen effectiveness across all domains of their lives, and build lives of worth.
I am intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, as a first cohort member of the 2-year Linehan Institute Behavioral Tech DBT-Team-Building Intensive for Independent Practitioners.

I will work with you to provide a warm, welcoming, and affirming space to safely speak about anything that is keeping you from living fully and richly or from progressing towards your goals.

As we develop our relationship, I will also respectfully challenge you in the service of expanding your sense of what is possible. I believe that once established, a trusting and generative therapeutic relationship is a place to laugh, cry, dream, vent, reflect, and expand. It can allow you to feel seen and heard in new ways, and through that experience, to develop new ways of feeling, acting, and thinking in your work and relationships.

Together we will work to deepen your knowledge of yourself, both in the present moment and in the context of your life history. We will identify and utilize your existing strengths and resilience to help address life concerns, provide clarity about parts of yourself that could benefit from greater attention and development, and improve your ability to feel comfortable identifying and coping with challenging emotional situations.

I believe the power of therapy is in its ability to restore self connection that has been interfered with by the world of experiences that have caused one pain. Life’s injuries, our innate instinct for survival, or the way we accommodate ourselves to others demands can be undone through the explorative healing work of therapy.
I believe the healing begins in returning to your wholeness and reclaiming yourself. Injury can appear and impact us in all stages of life and often individuals seek help so as to reorganize themselves during period of transitions. There is a hibernation we seek to awaken from as we look to align ourselves to a new set of circumstances and opportunities.
My work has focused on working with adults of all stages of life who are seeking more fulfillment in their identity and relationships and looking towards what else is possible for their future.
Sometimes we have to ask ourselves what is informing us: our spirit or our wounds?

Starting with a new therapist can be really difficult and feel daunting. My practice philosophy is rooted in the belief that your genuine and secure relationship with your therapist paves the way for change. I approach my clients with a respectful curiosity along with deep honor and compassion for your experiences. Together we'll build a relationship that feels safe for you to explore the inner workings of your mind and emotions.

My hope is that you leave our sessions feeling seen, understood, and with a greater sense of how to ride life's waves.

It can be tough to start counseling; telling your story to someone new. It's a brave thing to seek help when life feels out of control, and you should feel proud of your choice to make a change.
I have special expertise in treating many women's issues - everything from emotional pain stemming from reproductive health challenges to dealing with infidelity in a relationship. As a woman, I understand how life can affect us differently. Problems like unplanned pregnancies, chronic illnesses, overwhelming anxiety, eating issues, postpartum mood issues - it's stuff like this that can really have an impact on how you feel.
It can be difficult to talk about the problems that are keeping us up at night, but counseling is one place where it’s ok to say anything, and to truly be heard and helped. In goal oriented psychotherapy, we will use the power of your narrative to show the way to a more connected life. You will experience a safe, empathic environment to share, learn and grow through our work together. Healing through making changes in your life isn’t always easy, but therapy can be a supportive place to start! You are the expert of you, and I want to help you use your intuition to be the best badass 'you' you can be. I look forward to embarking on this journey with you.
