Please let me introduce myself, I am Dr. Louise Mitsianis, and my job as a therapist is to assist in helping you to overcome the issue(s) and/or concern(s) that you are currently experiencing. Let me tell you about my credentials. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, (LMHC), National Board-Certified Counselor (NBCC), Master Certified Addiction Professional (MCAP), and International Certification Alcohol and Drug Counselor, (ICADC), Reciprocity Consortium (RC), by the State Board of Florida. Forward Facing Trauma Therapy (FFTT), I have acquired the knowledge and skills to safely and effectively implement Forward-Facing Trauma Therapy Skills and principles in my work. My dedication to achieving and maintaining excellence in the area of treating traumatic stress is highly valued. These credentials mean is that I can help with Mental Health Disorders, Trauma and Substance Abuse Disorders. I have been a therapist for a variety of clients for at least 15 years. I have worked with clients with issues/concerns listed here: Depression, Anxiety, OCD, Anger Management, Domestic Violence, Specialty in Substance Abuse/Addiction, Depression, Stress, Coping Skills with Addictions, Coping with Grief and Loss, Relationship Issues, Family Conflicts, Trauma and Abuse, Sleeping Issues, Motivation, Self-esteem, Confidence, Bipolar Disorder, Coping with Life Changes, Compassion Fatigue, Multicultural Concerns, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), Co-morbidity, Codependency, Communication Problems, Isolation/Loneliness, Social Anxiety, Guilt and Shame, Control Issues, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Impulsivity, and Women's Issues.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, dignity, empathy, and compassion. We will work together to develop your goal(s) to meet your unique and specific issues/concerns that can be accomplished together.
I do want to share with you, that is okay to be nervous when meeting someone for the first time. Especially, when that person will be asking personal questions about your feelings and emotions, however, without any judgment, belittling, or negative criticism. If you have any questions, you may ask them at any time when we are working together in a session or before we start the sessions. All I ask of you is to be honest, so that I may be able to help you and completely understand your issues/concerns that you may want to address in therapy. It takes valor and strength to seek help from a professional and/or stranger. However, I am here to put you at ease and work through issues/concerns in your life together as a team. Thank you for taking the first steps towards a change. I am here to support, guide, and empower you. Please keep in mind that discussing difficult times can increase symptoms of uncomfortability, but we will walk through those together. Therapy is generally considered safe as it is under guidance with a supportive and collaborative relationship.

Sincerely,
Dr. Louise Mitsianis, LMHC, NBCC, MCAP, ICADC, RC, FFTT

Dr.mitsianis has been a blessing since we started talking, she really gets me! I feel very comfortable sharing with her, and I look forward to continuing my work with her 🙂

 Written by J.U. on Oct 10, 2021 after therapy with Louise for 1 year and 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

I really appreciate her help so much. She has experienced similar things to me in her life and it really helps me mentally to know that I’m not alone and she can give me advice that actually works because it’s how she helped herself. I’ve worked with her for over a year I think and I am a completely different person now. I’ve changed so much mentally thanks to her guidance and encouragement. I’ve had 4 other therapists in the past and she’s the most effective person that’s ever helped me

Dr. Mitsianis has been an anchor to me in many places of my life. She helps me push past previous hurts and hurdles. Her advice and experience is well resourced with helpful documents and approaches. Her methods have been successful when I apply them each time. I feel inspired after everytime I talk to her! She is also very funny and a great listener. So thankful for the platform of betterhelp especially during these hard times. This is my first experience with therapy and it has made a profound impact in my life for the better. I feel much happier and loving to myself then I did a few months back when depression started to sink in.

 Written by R.A. on Sep 11, 2020 after therapy with Louise for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

Dr. Mitsianis is very open and honest. She listens to understand and puts every effort into helping you be a better you. She helps you to understand how to process and deal with the unexplainable feelings you have and at no point do you ever feel like you are being judged. She genuinely cares and wants to help.
