Dr. Amanda Veldorale-Griffin


About Me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Florida with a PhD in Family Relations from The Florida State University as well as an MS in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Kentucky and a BA in Psychology from The University of South Florida.

I understand that starting therapy can be scary and I strive to make your experience I positive one. I believe therapy should be a collaboration between therapist and client. You know your situation better than I do. I will combine my therapeutic expertise with your expertise about your family and your situation to create workable solutions for you. I operate from an approach that draws on your strengths to help you and your family function the best it can!

I am an LGBT affirmative therapist with a passion for helping families. I specialize in working with parents, children, adolescents, survivors of trauma, and LGBT clients. I am also a certified Relationship Enhancement instructor.

Not only is Dr.Veldorale-Griffin extremely sweet, she's very real and knows how to handle the information that is provided to her. I feel very safe, and have developed a trust to where I know I can open up in the most honest way, which I haven't been able to do in a while. She knows what to say, what to suggest, and listens very well. Already seeing results in myself because of her. Glad I was provided with her help!
