About me

My name is Eric Lopez. I am fluent in both English and Spanish. I studied psychology at the University of Florida and earned my Masters of Counseling Psychology from Trinity International University. I am client centered in my approach to therapy and believe empathy and understanding are key to the therapeutic relationship. Having over 15 years of counseling in the state of Florida, over the years I have worked with people suffering from depression, anxiety, addictions, trauma, abuse, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, homelessness, and juvenile delinquency issues. The clients I have worked with have been between the ages of 5 and 85 from all races, ethnicities, cultures, backgrounds, political beliefs, and sexual orientations. The key to counseling and the client receiving true help, in my opinion, is having an open, empathetic, and trusting therapeutic relationship in which the client feels safe, heard and understood. With the client being the expert on their life, therapist and client together can bring clarity to thoughts, emotions, values, priorities, situations, and decisions. I integrate cognitive, behavioral, motivational interviewing, solution focused, existential and other approaches into counseling that is tailored to the client's needs and personality. Helping clients overcome problems and function at their best is my goal and honor. I hold a current License for Mental Health Counseling (LMHC) in the state of Florida.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Eric Lopez. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

I found Eric as a last resort in one of my darkest times in life. Other sites I submitted help too either didn't respond or they couldn't take me. I thank God for Eric being a part of my weekly routine now. His thoughtfulness, toughness, and clarity has brought me back from very hard days as he's diagnosed and continues to treat my condition. He's a blessing. I highly recommend him if you need help as I did/still do.

I came into therapy knowing exactly what I wanted to get out of it and Eric comes into this practice ready to do his best. I'm very greatful he listens and asks thought provoking questions. Eric digs deeper while always considering my ability to go deeper and respecting the difficulty associated with touching the sore spots.
