Hi! My name is Mary Torok. I am an accomplished and Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. I have over fifteen years of experience supporting adults, children, adolescents, and families through counseling, psychoeducation, directive, and non-directive instruction. I trusted Jesus Christ as my savior at the age of 18. Since then, I have dedicated my life and counseling career to God, as my ministry. Per request, I have supported Christian clients with scriptures and prayer in conjunction with various evidence based therapeutic practices. I have worked for numerous for profit and non profit businesses, including Christian homeless shelters and organizations. Also, I have volunteered as a prison ministry leader and producer for Christian radio and television stations. I have frequently utilized a faith and strength based approach in sessions for those seeking Christian counseling.
Overall, I am passionate about motivating, empowering, and helping people manage situations and overcome obstacles.
My specialties include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, Client and Person-Centered Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness and Relaxation, Motivational Interviewing, Strengths-Based Therapy, and other modalities. I have had success working with various populations, including clients diagnosed with anxiety and depressive disorders, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Adjustment Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive, and other personality disorders. I have assisted clients by providing critical resources to help with employment, education, and community referrals.
Furthermore, I have helped clients improve self-esteem and overcome situations related to bullying, discrimination, and abuse. I also specialize in improving communication and applying conflict resolution skills to manage family and relationship issues. Overall, I believe that education is the key to change. Therefore, my priority is to provide a trusting therapeutic relationship for teaching client’s the skills they need to improve any situation and ultimately transform!
