I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor as well as a certified parenting coordinator in the state of Florida.
My approach to therapy is unique. I use a blend of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and breath work combined with a wide variety of techniques that I have learned over my 30 plus years of experience. I am non judgmental, supportive and a skilled listener.
Through the years I have helped many people who suffer from anxiety, depression, stress, grief, divorce, and parenting problems. I've worked with couples as well as with individuals assisting them in moving through communication barriers, divorce and parenting struggles. I have provided tools to help individuals navigate through these difficult times.
I will help you address and resolve personal issues. By exploring your patterns, reactions and self talk we can begin to identify specific areas in which you would like to experience change. By seeing these areas you will feel relieved and more present. Then together we can choose where to being our work.
I believe that no one leads a trouble free life. Living in today's society pressures both sexes in every aspect of life. Many of us find we must juggle a career, marriage, children and a social life. This is not an easy task. You may succeed in one area and fall short in another. I can help you move from whatever area you are stuck in, to the next level of effectiveness feeling freed up in your life.
I am here to help you sort through your feelings and to discover better ways of communicating in all of your relationships. We will explore various options and solutions to your problems. I can also help you resolve issues of trust so that you will heal and feel safe in your life. My goal is to have you feel supported and empowered.
I am interested in meeting you and in beginning to make your life easier and happier.

I’ve never connected with a therapist before. I’ve had so much trauma in my life and seen so many therapists but when I read Lisheyna’s profile I knew I had to give it a shot. I sent her a message and she called me the same day. She said she only got through 4 lines of my intake form and knew she had to call me. We talked for 45 minutes and I just couldn’t wait to hear from her again. Now I can’t wait for our sessions and she gives me a totally different way to look at everything I’m going through. So grateful our paths crossed! ✨

Wow. What can I say? I was so worried about counselling as I had never done it before and knew that I wasn’t doing it for some major reason or some big thing that had happened to me. But wow did it help and that was mainly down to Lisheyna! She is so helpful, such a lovely person from the inside out and has helped me with her brilliant analogies to understand everything that my head is going through. From the very first session I was no longer scared, I was actually excited to chat to her! I cannot recommend her enough!

Lisheyna was great to work with. She really listened and gave me several exercises and things to do to help me get through my divorce. I was very depressed and heartbroken and just couldn’t get myself out of it. I don’t know that I would’ve been able to get through it in a healthy way without her help.

Lisheyna has been a great help to me in addressing my anxiety & self esteem issues. She always takes the time to listen to my problems and help me, and positively encourages me. I felt very comfortable talking to her from our very first session, I was super nervous about the whole process but Lisheyna is very easy to talk to and has been invaluable to me as a counsellor. I would definitely recommend her to friends & family.

Lisheyna is patient and kind, and invested in my development. I couldn't ask for a better counselor.
