Lisa Benitez, LMHC
I consider myself a relational therapist and believe it a privilege to sit with people while dealing with life’s challenges. Through a multi-discipline approach, integrating the practice of healthy social-emotional strategies, positive psychology, love and forgiveness work, I assist the client in their pursuit of personal growth and resolution. I work with people of all ages, individuals, couples and families. I also have a unique specialization with children under the age of five as a trained Infant Mental Health Specialist through the Harris Institute of The Florida State University Center for Prevention and Early Intervention Policy.
Bringing knowledge to help the family with traumatic and life changing situations, I practice child-parent psychotherapy to assist dynamics due to relational disruptions. I also have expertise in working with trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, and chronic pain.
I am a Certified Mental Health Intern Supervisor and trained facilitator in the Circle of Security parenting curriculum. Being an adjunct professor at Daytona State College, I have over ten years’ experience as a teacher for community professionals regarding social dilemmas and child and family issues.
