Waynette Speakman


About Me

My name is Waynette Speakman. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Florida and I am also a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) through the National Board of Certified Counselors. I am also a Board Certified -TeleMental Health Provider (BC-THP). I graduated from the University of South Florida in 2007 with a Master's in Counseling.
I primarily work from an Adlerian counseling perspective as it utilizes psychodynamic, cognitive, and behavioral techniques. I incorporate cognitive and behavioral strategies into counseling to facilitate goal-directed positive behaviors, while also taking into account past history, birth order and family dynamics. Adlerian therapy is goal directed and future focused, therefore we will not spend too much time on past history, rather add it to the other pieces to create the best possible picture. I will integrate solution-focused strategies and motivational interviewing techniques to encourage problem solving from a positive goal oriented perspective.
I am really excited to meet you and start working with you.

Waynette Speakman is a great counselor. She has helped me in so many ways. Before our first session she was always replying to my messages in a timely matter. She was always there to talk and was very helpful to me. My first video session with her went great! It is so great to be able to talk with someone who understands what you are going through and can give you advice to help you through it. I am so glad that I found her on here!
