Family therapy or family counseling is designed to address specific issues that affect the psychological health of the family, such as major life transitions or mental health conditions. Families can benefit from therapy when they experience any stressful event that may strain family relationships, such as financial hardship, divorce, or the death of a loved one.

Darcy Pare, LMHC
A little bit about me: Over the course of my career, I have had the privilege of working across many different fields within mental health. I first started my counseling career with an agency that provided counseling services to families, adults, and children who had a history of trauma, abuse, and family conflict. I quickly moved into teaching other counselors how to provide counseling services to individuals, couples, and families. I then transitioned into a school setting where I provided individual and group counseling services to adolescents. I also created and implemented a curriculum for staff to teach and promote social-emotional learning. Finally, I worked at a community mental-health agency. In this role, I taught and supervised all clinical staff and oversaw the mental health therapy that was provided within the hospital.
How I can help you: Finding the right counselor is an important step in your counseling process. It is important that you feel comfortable, safe, and connected with the counselor you choose to work with. I provide you a safe, warm, non-judgmental space as we collaborate together to better understand your needs, work towards your goals, and improve your overall well-being. I tailor my therapeutic techniques to your unique needs and encourage you to be an active participant in your personal growth and development. I have expertise in the areas of: adjustment disorders and life transitions, life coaching, personal growth and development, mood and thinking disorders, and stress management. I have experience providing treatment within the areas of, but not limited to: anxiety, grief and loss, relationship issues, self-esteem, abuse, conflict management, crisis counseling, parenting, premarital counseling, women’s issues and trauma-related disorders.
A glimpse into my life: I am a wife, mom, and Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I graduated from the University of Florida with my Masters of Education and Education Specialist degree in the area of mental health counseling.

Tricia Thomas, MA, RMHCI
A little bit about me: I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology from Wheaton College and now hold a master’s degree in mental health counseling, with a specialist degree in education, from the University of Florida.
My areas of focus include trauma, anxiety disorders, and depression. While in graduate school, I worked for the UF’s outpatient clinic at Springhill, where I focused almost exclusively on trauma work. I have extensive experience working with women’s wellness issues, including self-esteem, body image, and pregnancy. I also integrate Christian principles in my counseling sessions if clients request.
How I can help you: I believe that every person needs (and deserves) a safe place to express themselves—a place to speak freely, openly express feelings, and a place where it’s okay to not be okay. Everyone gets scared sometimes. Everyone experiences pain. But that’s simply the start of the journey. It’s not somewhere we’re meant to stay. I know trauma can often feel isolating and overwhelming, but I believe that these feelings do not have to be the end of the story. Human beings are resilient and capable of things they never thought possible—including healing and new beginnings.
A glimpse into my life: In my free time, I like to write, paint, visit coffee shops, spend time out in nature, and hand out with friends and my dog, Pappie.

Madison Magnus, Graduate Student
A little bit about me: I grew up in Ohio and moved to South Carolina to attend Coastal Carolina University for my Bachelors in Psychology. I am now located here in Tampa Florida as a Clinical Mental Health Counseling Masters student with Troy University.
My undergraduate experience with CCU consisted heavily of research, both in clinical and physiological areas including treating major depressive disorder and the vestibular system. In graduate school, my focus shifted to clinical practices and treatments. I have gained experience working in treatment centers, from inpatient residential to outpatient services. Throughout my educational career, I have gained a huge sense of appreciation for the field of counseling and psychology and am grateful for the opportunities I have to help others make positive changes in their lives. I specialize in providing support to teens and adults that suffer from anxiety, depression, anger, and PTSD.
How I can help you: I use a combination of treatment approaches including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), mindfulness-based interventions, person-centered therapy, and positive psychology. My goal as a counselor is to provide a safe and trusting space for my clients to explore how their experiences, thoughts, and behaviors are influencing how they relate and feel about their lives. I offer a space where you can speak your mind without the fear of being judged or dismissed.
A glimpse into my life: In my free time I love to be active whether it’s weight training at the gym or exercising outdoors. I also love going to the beach, concerts, watching documentaries, and going on road trips.

Sara Schluender, MA, LMHC
A little bit about me: I grew up in central Florida and graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science in Family and Child Sciences, and then graduated from the University of South Florida with a Master of Arts in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling.
Early on during graduate school, I gained experience in a treatment facility and with college students at USF. I worked at a behavioral health center advocating for the educational needs of children and adolescents while they balanced school with mental health treatment. During this time, I really came to appreciate the therapeutic emphasis on behavior and the unique perspective of exposure therapy. Since then, I have worked with kids, teens, and adults who have symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety disorders, depression, Tourette’s, and disordered eating.
How I can help you: I work from a cognitive behavioral perspective and have experience using Exposure and Response Prevention, Habit Reversal Training, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. My goal is to always create a safe environment for clients to share their experiences and receive the support they need to make positive change in their lives.
A glimpse into my life: In my free time, I enjoy biking, kayaking, getting in touch with my creative side, and practicing new techniques to stay mindful.

Dr. Kevin Dennie, DMin
A little bit about me: I am a Pastoral Counselor and Christian Licensed Family Therapist who has provided pastoral counseling services for over 35 years. After graduating with a master’s degree, I continued my education at McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago, Illinois where I earned my Doctor of Ministry (DMin) in Pastoral Care and Counseling.
In addition to working in the ministry field, I have served in the role a mentor and advocate for youth as they navigate through their struggles, counseled many couples as they navigate relational issues, and worked closely with men who find themselves silently struggling with personal problems.
How I can help you: In selecting me as your counselor, you will quickly discover that I am easy to open up to with my calming demeanor, contagious laughter, and encouraging, empathetic approach. You will be strengthened, enlightened, and renewed. As you search for a counselor to best meet your needs, my prayer for you is found in the following scripture: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy spirit.” Romans 15:13.
A glimpse into my life: When I’m not working, I can be found playing my guitar or relaxing with my family!

In addition to talk therapy, I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to better support survivors of trauma.

We mainly offer our services on a fee-for-services basis. Health insurance will pay for treatment of a mental illness, but many people come to see a counselor for reasons other than a mental illness. Furthermore, the diagnosis of a mental illness can follow a person long after the problem has been resolved. That is why we believe that a fee-for-services arrangement offers you the best value for your money. You can get an appointment quickly, usually within the week you call, without needing to get permission from a third party. You can contact your insurance provider for more information on reimbursements.
We are mostly an out-of-network group, although we do accept a limited number of insurances. If we happen to not accept your specific health insurance, we can provide receipts at the end of each month that you can use for reimbursement, depending on the policies of your personal insurance plan.
