Are you having trouble coping with everyday problems? Do you feel overwhelmed in trying to deal with a close personal relationship? Is your child or teen struggling or making poor choices, or are the challenges of parenting too much to handle? Are you going through a difficult life transition? Life situations can be stressful and can lead us to question our judgment and fill us with self-doubt. You try to address the issue, even with the support of family and friends, but this often does not lead to effective solutions. You may become depressed, frustrated, angry or anxious, or have difficulty managing your daily responsibilities.
I am a Florida licensed Psychologist with over 30 years experience working in private practice and a variety of public settings, including clinics, hospitals, universities and correctional facilities. I served as expert witness in forensic cases involving trauma, head injury and custody. I am a bi-lingual (Spanish/English) therapist working with individuals, families and couples from different backgrounds.
I develop a solution-focused dialogue to identify the problems that bring you in and re-frame them into realistic, workable goals. My aim is for you to leave each session feeling that you have learned a new way to approach your specific situation with strategies to try until our next appointment. My objective is to make every session productive. I combine cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapeutic approaches in therapy.
My goal is to help you build resilience in dealing with life’s stresses. I focus on life skills coaching, parent guidance, problem solving, cognitive restructuring, and remediation using behavioral and practical strategies.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Sarita Schapiro. 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.
She listens and addresses my concerns in a professional manner.
I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Schapiro. She’s very thorough and she listens. I also love the fact that she’s interested in solution solving and gave great tips that are practical for the stressors of life.
Only had 1 short session with her but was very nice and helpful the whole time.
I was in a place of so much fear and uncertainty after I felt like my whole life, as I knew it was shattered. Dr. Schapiro helped me to piece it all back together. She listened, gave great input, strategies, and tools that I will forever cherish and be greatful for.
So far I’m pleased with this service. It’s convenient and helpful
