Living with the stress of day-to-day life, and dealing with difficult transitions, many of us can use the support of therapy at one point or another. When it comes to finding a therapist, Miramar FL, with its convenient location in the greater Miami metropolitan area may be a better place to look than most. But even in a highly populated city, finding the right therapist for you may not be so easy. 

When it comes to psychotherapy, there are a number of evidence-based therapeutic approaches available, and they don’t all work the same way. If you’re feeling anxious due to unprocessed trauma, but the nearby group practice specializes in family counseling, it’s not going to necessarily be the best match. What you need may not be available close by. Not to mention that it may be difficult to find a licensed psychotherapist in your area that’s taking new patients. 

That’s where online therapy through a platform like BetterHelp can be of service. BetterHelp offers access to over 30,000 mental health professionals such as psychologists, social workers, and licensed mental health counselor (LMHC). These providers specialize in a variety of different areas, and have experience working with diverse populations. By filling out an online questionnaire, BetterHelp will connect you with a therapist who meets your individual needs. And because therapeutic alliance can be so essential to the success of the therapeutic process, if you need to change therapists you can do so at no additional cost. 

Online therapy with a licensed professional counselor from BetterHelp can be a convenient option, as well. Many busy professionals, students, and parents find that online sessions can fit into any schedule, and with video chat, phone, and text messaging options, you can talk to your therapist from the comfort of your own home or office. 

If you live in Miramar, in the surrounding Fort Lauderdale or Pembroke Pines area and have been thinking about therapy for any reason, there’s no better time to get started. Whether you’re dealing with a difficult life transition, want to learn stress management skills, or are interested in seeking personal growth, contact BetterHelp to get started on your wellness journey.

I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including couples/relationship issues, anxiety, depression, immigration-related issues, abuse and trauma, divorce and separation, and grief and loss, among other things. I have also worked extensively with the Marine Corps in the area of force preservation and suicide prevention, and have worked with other branches of the service as well, both in the US and OCONUS. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. I honestly believe we can work together to find solutions for almost any problem and that we can emerge from challenges stronger, and even more resilient. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, mindfulness training, and other techniques. I also have incorporated many things I have learned in my travels and interactions with psychology in other cultures and countries into my extensive training.

25 years of experience as a mental health therapist

My name is Cletus (Clete) Deller and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (20 years experience) who started out my professional career as a teacher. As far as approach, I use both Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Action and Commitment Therapy, (ACT). I have two Graduate Degrees (an MS in Psychology and Counseling, and an MBA), Post Graduate Certification in Forensic Psychology, certification as a Sexual Therapist, and an additional 40 graduate hours, focused primarily on trauma. I am trained and certified in the only evidenced-based scientific treatments, strongly recommended by the American Psychology Association (Prolonged Exposure, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Trauma-based CBT). These 3 protocols have the highest efficiency of any of the trauma approaches, and are the only protocols designed for Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (you have more than one traumatic event in your life, or the trauma happened in childhood). I am also trained in EMDR (designed for one event), and Flash EMDR. My position is you should be able to select between all of the sciences-based approaches - not just the one the therapist decides to learn. Would you go to a restaurant, with only one item on the menu? I also have experience in working with individuals, and couples in the area of addiction (addiction has a 80% correlation with trauma). I developed, wrote, and managed, a 90 day substance abuse program in 3 major Florida jails, that had a 72% to 76% success rate, over a 4 year period, In addition to addiction and trauma, I have experience in working with people with a past, or current relationship, with someone with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), and/or Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). I am certified in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), which is the only recognized treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder. I am also trained in Ideal Parent Figure (IPF), which is the only scientific approach to treating adults with Attachment Disorders. In addition, I am certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia. I am a not a Christian counselor, but a Counselor who is a Christian. What that means is that I can use both scientifically validated approaches to solving mental health issues, and Christian counseling techniques, if requested. The goal is always to craft the right plan, for the person that is seeking help. There is an important difference between my therapy, and that of 95% of the Betterhelp therapists. I AM NOT A TALK THERAPIST. That does not mean that talk isn't important. It is very important. But it cannot be all that we do together. If most of what we do is talk, inside of several sessions, you will end up with a "PAID BEST FRIEND". The therapy I use is unique, but it works, given a chance. Be prepared to work with me, but in the end, you will have the life you always wanted. You will find me a therapist that is laser-focused on you, non-judgmental, empathetic, trustworthy, a people person, and especially results oriented. It would be an honor to work with you as an individual, or a couple. Please feel free to visit my website at peaceorpain.org.

I recently decided to return to my passion for directly supporting others through psychotherapy after working many, many years as a psychiatric and human services administrator. I completed my graduate degree in 1986 and began my clinical career assessing and treating children who were suspected of being sexually abused; I went on to treat adult survivors of abuse and adolescent sex offenders. Since then, my practice has expanded to adults and mature adults experiencing symptoms of anxiety and depression - whose work and life are impacted by feelings of sadness, low self-worth, emotional and physical fatigue and anger. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

Hi, I'm Heather, pronouns she/they! I'm an LCSW and I have 10+ years of experience providing therapy to people who are feeling stuck, unheard, and/or trapped within our system of social norms and unrealistic expectations. I love helping clients get to those "ah ha" moments that unlock the gates to progress and healing. I practice a multitude of evidence based modalities and tailor them to my clients' specific needs. Nothing cookie-cutter, over here. I tend to be solution focused, client centered, and strengths based within my practice. Most of my experience comes from working with those who have experienced significant complex trauma. I believe everyone deserves a therapist that will listen to them entirely and completely free of judgment. I identify as queer (non-binary, poly, pan) and have worked with clients in all stages of recognizing their queerness. I also have experience working with those who have experienced religious trauma whether due to their sexuality or otherwise. If you're looking for a therapist who's laid back, nerdy, uses humor but will also challenge you to make the changes you've come to make; then I'm the therapist for you!

Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services in Miramar that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing with a therapist.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Miramar. 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 Miramar, 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 Miramar 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 Miramar 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.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater Miramar area in different types of therapy, including:

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Miramar 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 Miramar 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 Miramar 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). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Miramar 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.

Miramar 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 Miramar 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 Miramar 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 33027 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 Miramar counselor?

Before seeing your Miramar 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 Miramar.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy 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 Miramar 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 Miramar 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 with a therapist 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 therapist 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 Miramar, 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.

Miramar 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 during telehealth appointments?

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.
