Hello, I am Jose L. Diaz, Licensed Counselor in the states of Florida, Virginia, Utah, New Jersey, District of Columbia and Vermont.

Through my years of experience, I have been privileged to work with a wide variety of individuals and their needs through depression, bipolar, anxiety, OCD, addiction, schizophrenia, relationship, and adjustment challenges. In addition to my focus in various areas of mental health, I have offered valuable support to individuals who have experienced trauma and those within the LGBTQ+ community. Although not a member myself., I have had the privilege of supporting members work through gender identification, orientation, the coming out process and familial/social themes. My counseling style allows you to delve into the depths of their experiences, we can effectively address and work through the issues you are facing, leading to transformative growth, and healing. Through understanding your emotional and mental experience, you can more directly identify the core focus of change, independent yet in collaboration with coping skills. Therefore, it is with acceptance as you are and a non-judgmental interaction that we collective work through the delicacy of your needs. It’s an interest of mine to help you acknowledge the very present ability to create change to your benefit. Also, you are never alone in any emotional experience. I personally am familiar how mental health can affect a person life experience. Being fluent in Spanish also enables me to connect with Spanish -speaking individuals and help foster healthy outcomes. “We have more possibilities available in each moment than we realize” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh I look forward to working with you today. In having taken a moment to read this, you have already taken another step towards self-care.

Hello! I’m glad you’re taking the time to read about me and hope we might be a “fit” in your journey to find a therapist. Taking this first step can be scary and finding a person you trust and connect with is vital. You are fortunate to have many options available - take your time, read many profiles, and reach out if you have any questions after reading my overview. As a Florida Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have been providing individual and couples therapy for over 25 years. My career has taken me from the VA Medical system, to community work, to private practice. Along the way, I’ve gained experience assisting people in the areas of depression, anxiety, relationship problems, career transitions, and other life challenges. When life is spinning out of control, talking things out with an experienced therapist can help you find your way again. I enjoy working with people to manage the moods and anxieties that accompany all life transitions, including relationship change, employment shifts, and family adjustments. I have spent many years specializing in the needs of women and the changes that take place during the perinatal and postpartum period. As both a therapist and a mom to three, I personally recognize the joys and challenges that come with the journey to parenthood, special needs children, and the teenage years! During therapy, I take an eclectic, but client-centered approach. This means that therapy will be tailored to you – your individual history, beliefs, concerns, and strengths. This may involve using solution-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, or any integrative approach to explore your emotions and work toward mutually agreed upon therapy goals. Together, I believe we can develop strategies to help you lead a more fulfilling life and I hope you believe the same. If not, please keep looking – it will be worth it! I look forward to meeting you!

Hello! My name is Angie and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over five years of experience providing therapy services. My experience is in a wide range of therapeutic settings including: inpatient psychiatric hospitalization, domestic violence shelters and with a community mental health agency. I have worked with clients affected by depression, anxiety, substance use, trauma and relationship challenges as individuals, couples and families. Additionally, I am a military spouse and have worked closely with active duty members as well as family members. I can personally and professionally understand the unique challenges associated with this population. As a military spouse, I moved frequently but have finally settled permanently in the panhandle of Florida. I received my Bachelors degree in Psychology and my Masters Degree in Social Work from Indiana University. My approach to therapy is client centered as I strongly believe and recognize clients are the experts on their lives and should determine the path, intensity and length of their therapy. I like to use a strengths-based and solutions-focused approach and I draw on multiple treatment modalities to guide clients in establishing realistic treatment plans to help them reach their desired therapeutic goals. I tend to use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to assist clients in exploring relationships among their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to assist them in discovering any dysfunctional thought patterns leading to self-destructive behaviors and beliefs. I also support clients through developing coping skills using mindfulness and emotion regulation. It takes courage and bravery to take the first steps towards the change you desire. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Havana. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Havana, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Havana region and in the state of Florida. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Havana or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

  • Couples therapy

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Havana area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Havana therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Havana due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Havana may not take health insurance, some in the state of Florida may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With a BetterHelp therapist throughout the state of Florida you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Havana, Florida working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug or medication as treatment, or perform psychological assessments and other psychiatric services.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Havana above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Havana helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety, depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist.

You can also try a Havana therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Havana therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Havana therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Havana therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Havana therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in FL, therapists may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 32333 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Havana counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Havana.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, 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 feedback and advice from a therapist. A Havana licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Havana, Florida can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Havana has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
