My name is Eric Lopez. I am fluent in both English and Spanish. I studied psychology at the University of Florida and earned my Masters of Counseling Psychology from Trinity International University. I am client centered in my approach to therapy and believe empathy and understanding are key to the therapeutic relationship. I have over 15 years of counseling in the state of Florida, in which I hold my current license, LMHC. Over the years I have worked with people suffering with depression, anxiety, addictions, trauma, abuse, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, homelessness, and juvenile delinquency issues. The clients I have worked with have between the ages of 5 and 85 from all races, ethnicities, cultures, backgrounds, political beliefs, and sexual orientations. The key to counseling and the client receiving true help, in my opinion, is having an open, empathetic, and trusting therapeutic relationship in which the client feels safe, heard and understood. With the client being the expert on their life, therapist and client together can bring clarity to thoughts, emotions, values, priorities, situations, and decisions. I integrate cognitive, behavioral, motivational interviewing, solution focused, existential and other approaches into counseling that is tailored to the client's needs and personality. Helping clients overcome problems and function at their best is my goal and honor.
I have been a Christian since 1993 when I was invited to a Carman concert and opened my heart to Jesus. The years that have followed have caused me to grow closer and closer to Him over the years through many difficult life experiences relating to relationships, marriage, family, addictions, grief, loss, parenting and church-related issues. I believe counseling that is led by God will always be the most effective as He is the one who knows us fully.
