Fleischmann, David PhD
One of the few therapists in Orlando who's smart enough to understand what you're actually trying to tell him, willing to listen when you need to talk and knows what to say when you're just sitting there. The first few times I saw him I didn't even want to be there but after a month or two it felt more like hanging out with a friend than seeing a doctor. I've seen my fair share of therapists and even having since moved to New York and then Tampa I'd rather try to call Dr. Fleischmann on the phone than bother seeing anyone else.

Sara Benitez Counseling
Kids and I have had an amazing experience. Kids, ask to see Ms. Sara when they are having a difficult time. Always a plus, when kids want to see a secialist.
Tips & Advices
Group counseling is when one or more counselors lead a group discussion, usually between five and 15 people. The group may focus on a shared experience or situation, and provide support and encouragement to the other attendees.
Each state defines its own requirements for what licenses and education are needed to be a counselor. It's common for counselors to have a bachelor's degree in psychology or a similar field, as well as a master's degree. After that, counselors should obtain their state license, and can move on to achieving other licenses like the:
  • National Certified Counselor (NCC) license
  • Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) license
  • Master Addictions Counselor (MAC) license
  • Forensic Health Evaluators (FHE) license
  • Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) license
  • Certified Family Therapist (CFT) license
This all depends on the patient's goals and circumstances. Some people are happy with their results after just a few sessions; others continue to meet with their counselors for years. There is no right or wrong length of time to go to counseling.
Anyone can benefit from counseling services. Counseling can help you gain greater insight into yourself; deal with feelings of sadness, worry, depression or anxiety; as well as work out relationship problems, trauma or addiction. Not every type of counseling service works with every person.
Yes. Except in very specific situations, a counselor will never repeat conversations from a counseling session. Situations where information from sessions might be shared include:
  • If the counselor believes the patient might harm him or herself, or someone else.
  • If the counselor wants to get a second opinion on the patient's treatment. If this is the case, the counselor should seek the patient's written permission before consulting another professional.
