Our Services

Our goal is to enhance the well-being of adults, children and families in our community by providing services that promote greater personal happiness and health, and more fulfilling relationships. Our core values are compassion, cooperative partnership with clients, and effectiveness of services.

Usually, the first session involves an in-depth discussion of your background and the problem that led you to seek therapy as well as affording you an opportunity to become acquainted with your clinician. Following a thorough evaluation, including a review of your own treatment goals, a course of psychotherapy may be started. The range of psychotherapy services available through Tampa Bay Center for Relational Psychology includes:

  • Individual Psychotherapy
  • Couples/Marital Psychotherapy
  • Family Psychotherapy
  • Group Psychotherapy
  • Career Counseling

Each of the psychologists practicing at Tampa Bay Center for Relational Psychology have a preference for using treatment strategies which have received research support for their effectiveness. Examples of these interventions include Gottman Method Couple Therapy and cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy for depression and anxiety. We believe the best care is tailored to patients’ specific treatment needs and goals and is an effective and efficient form of intervention. Your psychologist will often build ongoing assessment into the therapy process to assist in identifying problems accurately as well as to monitor your progress in treatment. We provide care to you in a caring, respectful climate - appreciating the struggles you are experiencing and encouraging and supporting you in making changes.
