About Me

Dr. Lobo is an educated, experienced, and licensed mental health professional. He has extensive experience working with children, teenagers, and their families. He has successfully worked with some of the most challenging youth in various settings, including the foster care, academic, and juvenile justice sectors in both the public and private sector. He currently consults with Miami-County Public Schools, New York Public Schools, and several Charter School Systems and operates a thriving private practice.
Dr. Lobo specializes in working with the most challenging children and teenagers around behavioral and academic issues and is proficient in assisting families in getting back on track.
Counseling is not a miracle cure or a magic wand; however, sometimes talking to an objective individual and sharing your thoughts and feelings can be highly therapeutic and liberating, and getting non-judgemental feedback and guidance can be extremely helpful in navigating life’s issues. Many times things can begin to be sorted out in a couple of sessions.

Written by I.A. on Dec 13, 2021 after therapy with Douglass for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, grief, addictions, compassion fatigue, and lgbt

This is my first time doing this type of therapy. I didn’t know what to expect and I was quite apprehensive and anxious. Especially right before I had my first live-session with Dr. Lobo. From the first five minutes speaking with him I knew he was a great match. He is very personable, the conversation was flawless. It was as if I was speaking with someone I’ve known for a while. After some time I relaxed and became comfortable speaking more openly with him and receiving therapy.

He is very knowledgeable, I really like that he has given me advice, exercises, worksheets to do and recommends books for me to read. He has helped open my eyes to my trauma and how to go about working through it. I am confident that Dr. Lobo can assist me with the therapy that I am in need of to live a better more anxiety free life. I look forward to future sessions with his expertise.

Dr. Lobo is extremely kind and wise, he taught me a lot about how I can help my issues I’m having and opened my eyes up to more possibilities. He really changed the way I communicate with others and helped me with my anxiety and he always answers or responds super fast. He is the most genuine therapist I ever had and he’s so respectful and relatable. He’s helped me with a lot more and I genuinely think he’s the best on BetterHelp.

Dr. Lobo is the best person to have as a counselor. He is the nicest person I’ve met and listened to my troubles. He will get you through on whatever your dealing with without any judgment. And gives good advice:)

Written by S.K. on May 12, 2021 after therapy with Douglass for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, self esteem, anger management, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

Dr. Lobo is a no bullshit kind of guy and provides clarity when things often seem vague. He's helpful, understanding and provides practical solutions to how you can be a happier and better person. Sometimes when you're in a bad place, you need someone to snap you out of it and help you see the bigger picture, help you understand where these emotions are coming from and how to tackle them. Dr. Lobo has done all of this and I couldn't recommend him enough.

Written by L.A. on Apr 23, 2021 after therapy with Douglass for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and bipolar disorder

Dr Lobo has been a perfect fit for what I've needed. He's guided me and helped me to make my own decisions. He's never push or steered my decisions. He's always helped me by encouraging me to try my institution to know what's right, unless it comes to getting cats, apparently that was a bad cut decision :).
Dr Lobo has be wonderful. If I didn't have to leave I wouldn't. He's been the best counselor I've ever found and I worry when I'm able to take the time to focus again. I will never get so lucky to find another like him. Thank you for all your support, kind words and most importantly your style of counseling helping me believe in me.
