About me

I am licensed in Florida with 39 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, grief and loss, phobias, pre and post incarceration and anti-social personality. I am a practitioner of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) and Ericksonian Hypnosis. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts, feelings, and topics of faith can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Anthony Schefstad . We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.

Written on Nov 08, 2023 after therapy with Anthony for 5 months

Dr. Shefstad is a great listener, and corrector. He will let me talk a while and let me explore ideas on my own but will step in to correct some wording, re-appropriate the tone, and steer towards functional, useful goals. He takes my abstract meanderings and constructs solid concepts for me to build with.
