Giovanna Agostinelli

(MS, LMHC)

About Me

My name is Giovanna Agostinelli. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. I have experience in working in many different settings with all ages, genders, and cultural backgrounds. I have worked closely with individuals and families who varied in their presenting problems, such as trauma/abuse, anxiety, depression, stress, family-related issues, sexuality/gender identification, relationships, codependency, need for parenting skills, and more. I provide great attention to remaining multiculturally sensitive, as well as unbiased in all areas. I work with various modalities, but tend to utilize CBT, trauma-informed modalities (CPT, TF-CBT), Mindfulness-based techniques, Nurturing Parenting techniques, and Narrative therapy techniques. I offer messaging, phone sessions, live chat, and video sessions. I do offer chat only sessions on the weekends on occasions where I will need to accommodate.

The childhood/teenage years can be incredibly challenging for children/teens and parents alike. These years are filled with high pressure and stress-inducing situations. This pressure reveals underdeveloped areas in ourselves and can cause us to look at difficult questions. These situations can lead children and teens to resort to blending in, compromising their values, acting out, feeling misunderstood by caretakers/teachers/friends, etc. Counseling can be a great way to implement self-care, receive feedback and psychoeducation, gain parenting skills, learn healthy coping skills, modify unwanted behavior, develop self-confidence and acceptance, and more!

*There is no "one fits all" to counseling because you are uniquely YOU. My services to you will reflect this in our conversations. It's an absolute honor to be a guide and witness to your incredible journey ahead!*

Giovanna is extraordinarily capable of helping to bring the change her clients are looking for. She seems to have a well thought out plan, and flexibility within that plan, in order to help guide those seeking counseling to their goals. She doesn't brush aside or downplay anything you have to say. She shows that she values your time and the effort you put into your end of the counseling experience. If you're willing to give it a shot, she'll meet you where you are, and help you rise.
