Welcome to Better Help! My name is Maryssa St. Fort and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I obtained both my undergraduate and graduate degree from Nova Southeastern University.
Throughout my years of working in the mental health field, I gained experience in individual, family and couples counseling. I specialize in working with individuals and couples who have difficulty coping with everyday life situations. I have helped these individuals improve their everyday functioning and have helped couples work through some difficult times in their relationship. I have been a therapist in the for over 6 years and have taken an active role in my community, as she has worked with nonprofit organizations to assist families in Broward County obtain counseling services. In addition to my counseling skills I has held a leadership role with a nonprofit organization for the past several years, overseeing the daily functions of a grant funded program.
It's not always easy to ask for help but it takes a string and courageous person to do so and you have taken the first step! I look forward to working with you!

So far, in addition to the emails and text messages, I have had a couple of physical conversations with Maryssa which I have found to be very productive. The important thing is that these conversations are ran how I need them. For example, for the majority of time I had done the majority of the talking as I needed to off load my thoughts and Maryssa would support with short comments and advice. During other moments, Maryssa has pressed a particular point to enable to get some more depth and clarity to support the development of further discussion and/or next steps. I am very happy with the way things are progressing.
Maryssa is phenomenal! She intuitively knows exactly what question, exercise or worksheet I need to make progress!
Maryssa has a warm and friendly style of counselling, she felt like a friend but a very knowledgable and skilled friend. She has helped me a LOT this past month. I will miss her but I will be back.
I'm new to therapy and its not easy for me to ask for help. Maryssa is very easy to talk to and is on cue when it comes to her responses and advice/questions she gives and ask.
Fantastic support. The therapy has been spot on in terms of identifying triggers and causes of the underlying issues. So of her analysis has brought me to tears with how spot on and real they have been and this has helped as I feel she truly understands my issues
Maryssa is a very understanding and thoughtful person and counselor, she helped me face my problems head on and be true to what I want.
I thank her for her help and appreciate her support.
