Shlomo Lawrence

(LMFT, EMDR)

About Me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the State of Florida. I graduated from Nova Southeastern University in Davie, Fl in 2007 and since then have been working in the counseling field. I have over 14 years experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in a variety of settings including community based treatment, addiction treatment that include co-occurring disorders and have years of experience working in the trauma setting to support client's experiencing trauma. I have extensive training in EMDR and have experienced tremendous outcomes with this modality. I have had experience working with a broad range and severity of clinical issues. I have experience working with substance abuse sufferers, trauma victims, those families or couples struggling with relationship/ marriage and family issues and inter-familial conflict. Clinically, I also have years of experience working with individuals struggling with depression, spectrum disorders, obsessive behaviors, struggling with anxiety and depression. Finally, I have experience working with second and third generation survivors of trauma.

I am compassionate, caring and an active listener. I believe that our society depends on how we treat ourselves and others and believe one's mental health process is the foundation for harmony, peace and spiritual process. I was born to first generation survivors of Nazi Germany and experienced the difficulties with living those memories. My conviction to the spiritual process and my belief that there is a greater purpose then the self has encouraged me to continue to provider fellowship, support and volunteering where it's best suited within the community. I know that having mental health issues and life's challenges can be difficult. There is still so much stigma around having mental health issues, the process for getting help can be overwhelming, and it can feel so frustrating when you seek out help and it seems so challenging. I foster the approach of being compassionate and a person that's easy to speak to help support the joining trust that I develop with my client's. I have experience utilizing many approaches of therapies; however, these are the therapy modalities I tend to use in treatment: CBT, Solution Focus Modalities, Narrative and Structural therapy, integrative couples therapy, EMDR.
