Sammi L. Siegel, PhD, LMHC, Counselor in South Miami
Clients seeking treatment typically find that their coping skills which had previously worked, are no longer working. I help individuals and couples regain resilience and strength, which may have been lost during challenging and trying times as well as during major life transitions. My strengths lie in providing pre-surgical evaluations as well as counseling for individuals undergoing Bariatric Surgery for weight loss. As a service to my clients, my office will handle insurance billing for you. Privacy and confidentiality are of utmost importance. Therapy takes place in a quiet, safe, and peaceful environment.
I conduct psychosocial evaluations for individuals undergoing Bariatric Surgery for weight loss. For over 20 years, I have focused my career goals in the treatment of eating disorders and work from a "non-diet" approach. Establishing a new relationship with food and body leads to living life with more peace.
Although I have extensive training and education in Humanistic Psychology and Cognitive-Behavioral approaches to mental health treatment, another important approach to therapy comes from a wellness-based model of health. I work toward integrating one's mind, body, and spirit into daily life for greater happiness and fulfillment.
