Working with a licensed therapist can help you manage life's challenges and learn to make positive changes in your life.

With BetterHelp, you can attend individual therapy from the comfort of your home at a time that works for your schedule. You can work with a clinical psychologist, social worker, marriage and family therapist, or other mental health professional to find solutions to your unique challenges. Plus, you can change providers anytime until you find one with whom you have a good working therapeutic relationship.

If you need support to manage the symptoms of mood disorders, navigate relationship difficulties with your adult children, or cope with changes to your physical health, an online therapist can guide you through the healing process and help you reach your goals. Connect with an online therapist licensed in Florida to get started.

I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 1996. with experience as a therapist, working with a diverse population. I have experience working with a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, relationship dynamics, grief and loss, communication, trauma, and parenting. My counseling style is warm, receptive, and non-judgmental. I believe that clients are highly knowledgeable about their issues, and that my job as a therapist is to encourage self discovery, and the exploration of solutions, to each individual's unique problems. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I also recommend the use of Mindfulness techniques as part of the process of inner exploration. Interventions are geared for each individual dependent on their style, and needs. I look forward to meeting you as we embark on this exciting journey together. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life, and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

Hello! I'm Heather, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor based in South Florida. Let me share a bit about my journey. I started off my education at the University of Florida, where I majored in Biochemistry and Gender Studies. Life took me on a different path, however, when I realized pharmacy wasn't my calling. So, I headed back to school and in 2016, I earned my Master of Science in Counseling Psychology from Florida International University. I’ll always be a Gator, though! How many times in the last week have you said something along the lines of, “Are you fucking kidding me?” or "Why do I keep doing this shit over and over?" Clients that work well with me have probably said them a bunch of times. Are you part of Gen Z and struggling with anxiety and/or depression because of the socioeconomic and political climate in the US? Maybe you’re a millennial trying to balance being perfect in your career, maintaining friendships (likely by making plans to make plans), attending friend’s weddings/baby showers, and scrolling the dating apps trying to find the love of your life (maybe this time you reactivate your account will be different!). Perhaps you’re just trying to grapple with the millionth ‘once in a lifetime’ event that happened this week, or you’re a parent wanting to heal the trauma from your own childhood so you don’t traumatize your kid(s) the way your own parent(s) traumatized you. Or — you’re a first responder, a therapist, or even a ‘regular’ person simply struggling to navigate your daily reality and its complexities. I've had the privilege of working with clients struggling with a diverse range of issues, including trauma/PTSD, anxiety/panic attacks, body image concerns, perfectionism, emotional detachment, low self-esteem, phobias, and much more. More specifically, my expertise includes working with survivors of mass shootings and community-based traumas, millennials, individuals experiencing panic attacks, fellow mental health professionals, first responders, pre/post-op bariatric patients, and parents looking to break the cycle of intergenerational trauma. My approach to therapy is all about creating a space for clients to develop bottom-up coping skills and healing from trauma. I firmly believe that many of the challenges people face today can be traced back to unresolved childhood experiences. But here's the good news: I believe everyone has the potential to heal and build a happier, more stable future. I view participation in counseling as a partnership between the client and therapist. Clients define the problem(s) to be worked on and therapists use specialized knowledge to help their client bring attain their goals. While this sounds easy, clients often struggle to make changes, especially early on - change is uncomfortable, so it often feels easier to avoid. Most of the progress made in therapy is done outside of and between sessions, so what clients do between sessions will impact the sessions themselves. When I am not working, I spend my time at stand-up comedy shows, playing board games, going to live metal shows, playing with my pets, spending time with friends, and scrolling social media.

My name is Dr. Jennifer Fuentes-Pérez and I am a licensed clinical psychologist. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, which is why I prefer to offer my services in Spanish - my primary language. I have always been interested in studying human behavior and helping people overcome challenges and achieve their goals. I received my bachelor's degree in social sciences with a concentration in psychology from the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras Campus, P.R. Later, I went on to complete my master's and doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the Carlos Albizu University, San Juan Campus, P.R. In 2012, I obtained my permanent license to practice the discipline of clinical psychology in Puerto Rico. Early in my career, I worked in school settings, offering individual therapies and conducting psychological/psychometric assessments. Later, I achieved my goal of establishing my private practice, which I practiced for five years until I relocated to the United States in 2018. At the end of 2023, I obtained my license to practice psychology in Florida. I am currently providing my services to subscribers of BetterHelp and another telehealth platform. I have experience helping clients with situations such as stress and anxiety, depression, adjustment difficulties, life stage difficulties, work stressors, LGBTQ+ issues, family conflicts, trauma, and abuse. My philosophy has always been to work towards a better future, as it is a wise decision. *My practice schedule is Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some commonly asked questions can be found below.

How much does a therapist cost?

Mental health professionals can differ in price. Forbes found that the average cost of in-person therapy in the US is around $100 to $200 per hour. Pricing can also vary based on your location. 

BetterHelp offers payment plans of $60 to $90 per session, charged monthly in a lump sum. You can also take advantage of this pricing on one of BetterHelp's sister platforms, like ReGain for couples or TeenCounseling for teens aged 13 to 19.

Many therapists may be upfront about their pricing and whether or not they take health insurance from the beginning. Additionally, some in your area may offer a sliding scale plan to allow those with lower incomes to pay less for therapy. However, services online can often save individuals a few hundred dollars per month.

How do I know if I should get a therapist?

Mental health services and mental health providers may help you navigate various concerns. You do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy; You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general advice. A counselor may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Mental health issues don't always present as a crisis. Many professionals provide talk therapy and support for life transitions, skills learning, relationship problems, or life coaching. Online therapy sessions in Florida can allow clients seeking therapy to experience professional help through video, phone, or live chat sessions without commuting to an office.

Does insurance cover therapy?

Different counseling services can vary in cost. Therapists must apply to accept insurance through insurance companies, which may take time and money, so not every therapist offers services through insurance. If you cannot find a therapist that accepts your plan, BetterHelp may be cheaper than visiting an in-person therapist.

Is online therapy safe?

Online therapy through BetterHelp and its sister platforms is safe. Therapists are licensed, experienced, and vetted before being contracted with the platform. If you experience any concerns with your therapist, you change your counselor through the platform or app at any time.
