About me

There are times in life where we may find ourselves struggling with current stressors or are experiencing challenges coping with wounds from the past. While seemingly functioning in the day-to-day routines of work, school, home, and within relationships, it becomes increasingly difficult or sometimes even impossible to manage. For many of us, strength is often perceived as “holding it together” while we are painfully bottling up the emotions that we were actually designed to experience naturally. We can become trapped in the pain of our past (or present) and silently suffer. As an experienced therapist specializing in trauma, anxiety, depression, and addiction, together we can work to achieve healing, restoration and balance. Therapy will afford us an opportunity to identify healthy coping skills to promote a life of hope, healing, and meaning.

Mimi Culpepper is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Master’s Level Certified Addictions Counselor, and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional specializing in individual and group therapy in Florida. She has been passionately and fervently providing mental health and substance abuse services to a broad spectrum of clients for over 18 years. Past experiences include work in diverse treatment settings, such as outpatient and residential substance abuse treatment centers and providing in-office, as well as, home-based individual, couples, and family counseling. Among her areas of expertise are anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, anger management, women’s issues, life transitions, spirituality/faith-based counseling, and substance use disorders/addiction.

In addition to seeing clients, Mimi is also a Qualified Supervisor, providing clinical supervision for individuals pursuing professional licensure to become a mental health counselor in the state of Florida.

Mimi believes that we were all created for connectedness. In her counseling sessions, she constantly strives to create and maintain professional relationships that are warm and trusting through an atmosphere of compassion, empathy and authenticity. In her treatment, Mimi aims for constant collaboration to uncover the unhealthy cycles that present as a barrier for achieving balance. Mimi is an interactive therapist, utilizing a Cognitive Behavioral and Solution-Focused approach while supporting her clients in addressing challenges. Through the examination of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, Mimi and her clients collectively identify healthy coping mechanisms to promote a happier, more productive life. To accommodate the specific needs of each client, Mimi develops a personalized approach, encouraging each client to (re)discover, own, and build on strengths that will serve to break the cycles that have been rooted in pain. Feeling understood, which is one of Mimi’s primary objectives in therapy, will certainly facilitate this process.
