Dr. Louise Mitsianis, LMHC
Please let me introduce myself, I am Dr. Louise Mitsianis, and my job as a therapist is to assist in helping you to overcome the issue(s) and/or concern(s) that you are currently experiencing. Let me tell you about my credentials. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, (LMHC), National Board-Certified Counselor (NBCC), Master Certified Addiction Professional (MCAP), International Certification Alcohol and Drug Counselor, (ICADC), Reciprocity Consortium (RC) all approved by the State Board of Florida. Forward Facing Trauma Therapy (FFTT), I have acquired the knowledge and skills to safely and effectively implement Forward-Facing Trauma Therapy skills and principles in my work. My dedication to achieving and maintaining excellence in the area of treating traumatic stress is highly valued. These credentials mean is that I can help with mental health disorders and substance abuse disorders. I have been a therapist for a variety of clients for at least 15 years. I have worked with clients with issues/concerns listed here: Depression, Anxiety, OCD, Anger Management, Domestic Violence, Specialty in substance Abuse/Addiction, Depression, Stress, Coping Skills with Addictions, Coping with Grief and Loss, Relationship Issues, Family Conflicts, Trauma and Abuse, Sleeping Issues, Motivation, Self-esteem, Confidence, Bipolar Disorder, Coping with Life Changes, Compassion Fatigue, Multicultural Concerns, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), Co-morbidity, Codependency, Communication Problems, Isolation/Loneliness, Social Anxiety, Guilt and Shame, Control Issues, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Impulsivity, and Women's Issues. Some of my theoretical (therapy style) approaches are Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Solution-Focus Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Motivational Interviewing Therapy, and Forward-Facing Trauma Therapy. My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, dignity, empathy, and compassion. We will work together to develop your goal(s) to meet your unique and specific issues/concerns that can be accomplished together.
I do want to share with you, that is okay to be nervous when meeting someone for the first time. Especially, when that person will be asking personal questions about your feelings and emotions, however, without any judgment, belittling, or negative criticism. If you have any questions, you may ask them at any time when we are working together in a session. All I ask of you is to be honest, so that I may be able to help you and completely understand your issues/concerns that you may want to address in therapy. It takes valor and strength to seek help from a professional and/or stranger, however, I am here to put you at ease and work through issues/concerns in your life together as a team. Thank you for taking the first steps towards a change. I am here to support, guide, and empower you. Please keep in mind that discussing difficult times can increase symptoms of uncomfortability, but we will walk through those together. Therapy is generally considered safe as it is under guidance with a supportive and collaborative relationship.

She is very knowledgeable and understanding. She is kind but can also be blunt which helps me realize that I can’t be making a mountain out of a mole hill. I highly recommend her and feel that she is very capable and has helped me in more ways than one take control back over my life and emotions. She is with me every step of the way and checks in with me which makes me feel better and cared for. I am very confident in her and feel that day by day I am getting better and healing.
