About Me

My name is Paul Muenzmay (Munz-may). I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I received my Masters Degree in Community Psychology from Springfield College campus in Tampa, FL. The idea behind Community Psychology is that there are many people who make decisions about “the client”; sometimes without their knowledge. It is my responsibility as the therapist to interact with each of those people and we function as a team in order to meet “the client”at the point of their need.
After receiving my Masters degree, I also underwent two years of supervision where I met regularly with a Licensed Clinical Supervisor. I presently work full-time at New River Correctional Institution. I have worked in the correctional environment since 2011. In this setting, I have provided services to folks diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Schizophrenia and helped them to adjust to the Correctional Environment. In addition, I have donte work at First Step of Sarasota “Choices” program which is a diversionary program for people who would otherwise be in jail because of substance abuse issues.
I attended Southwestern Seminary in Ft. Worth, TX where I took courses in counseling and Christian social services. My relationship with Jesus Christ is foundational to who I am as a person and the way that I interact with others. It is invaluable to me in my current role as a full-time mental health counselor at New River Correctional Institution. It allows me to look past the blue uniform that the inmates are required to wear to see the person inside that uniform as one who is a soul “for whom Christ died.”
My life verse is II Timothy 2:24-26 that reads: “And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will. This means to me that I work for the Lord, first. I must be kind and not argue but instead able to teach, have my facts straight, know the Word because that is my ultimate authority and I hold myself under submission to the Lord.
I wish to help you find your purpose and calling. My goal is that you live a life that is filled with purpose. I look forward to praying for and helping you find your purpose and calling.
