Mrs. Dominique Barritt
Clinical Social Worker/Therapist, Licensed Mental Health Counselor
My therapeutic philosophy stems from my heartfelt belief that everyone deserves an opportunity to process their and work through life’s challenges in an empathic, understanding, and non-judgmental environment. It is my goal to create this type of compassionate space for you. I am committed to helping you reach your full potential and to see you succeed.
During counseling, I enjoy collaborating with adult or adolescent clients, and provide individual, couples, and family therapy. My concentrated specialties are in the areas of sexual trauma (both rape and childhood molestation), gender-related issues (including transgender transition), and relationship issues (including domestic violence). I have worked extensively with a variety of mental health diagnoses and concerns; some of which include Depression, Anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia and Schizoaffective Disorder, Grief and Loss, Self-Esteem, Personal Growth and Transition, Women’s Issues, Family of Origin Concerns, and Boundary Creation/Maintenance. My work focuses on assisting those who are struggling to acknowledge, control, or express their emotions in a healthy and appropriate way.
Throughout the therapeutic process, I am committed to providing confidential, knowledgeable, and supportive therapy. My approach is personalized, integrative, and encouraging. I have been known to utilize a number of clinical approaches including Humanistic, Psychodynamic, Interpersonal Process, Cognitive-Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, Existentialism, Exposure Therapy, Solution-Focused, Family Systems, and Mindfulness. I am also a fully-trained EMDR Therapist (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). My comprehensive treatments and techniques are adjusted based on your individual needs and goals.
I have worked in the field of counseling since 2007. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida, a Nationally Certified Counselor, a Certified EMDR Therapist, and a Certified Sex Therapist. I hold a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, Florida.
