Jay Petry, LMHC, NCC, CCMHC, Counselor in Saint Petersburg
I am seeing clients in two locations for your convenience. Evening appointments available for new clients now. My therapeutic approach is client-centered and focused . You are in charge of how your therapy sessions go and I work at your pace, helping you along the way in your journey to healing. Therapy is about change, commitment and the deliberate focusing of your mind. If you are ready to change the circumstances of your life, I am ready to help you do that now.
Most people experience instant relief from symptoms using Tapping therapy. Tapping is not new, but is a new addition to the list of Evidence Based Practices by the American Psychological Association. Tapping therapy is used by progressive therapists everywhere. Combined with Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, rapid results will amaze you.
As with anything in life, you get out of counseling what you put into it. If you're ready for change and/or healing, it will happen with ease and flow for you. Attitude is half the journey and I am happy to join you in your journey.
Take the first step to help. Call Jay Petry now - (727) 478-4118 x254
