About Me

I am a mental health counselor licensed in Florida with over 10 years of experience working with families and individuals of all ages, primarily with children and teens experiencing anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, low motivation, coping difficulties, parent related stress, bullying, anger, OCD, and ADHD. I am a mother myself and feel I have a natural sensitivity and holistic approach to helping children and teens. I find that the best treatment outcomes are produced when treating the client comprehensively, including lifestyle, screen time, social media, diet, exercise, sleep, and peer group choices.

My counseling style is empathetic and non-judgmental. I believe in treating everyone with compassion and sensitivity toward their experience. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and mindfulness counseling. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you and your family!

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Katie Amit. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.

She was wonderful to my 17 year old daughter, thank you so much!

I'm a retired USMC Scout Sniper with more mental health issues than most. Give therapy a chance and know it is a process not a blue or red pill scenario. Katherine is vastly more careful and professional than any of the many others before her that treated me. Why settle for being a number at the VA when you can have a name and an open line of communication with someone who understands the importance of having personal experience with mental health care. Everyone has mental health issues so don't feel alone. Only the smart ones have the courage to do something to make life better for themselves and the people who are in their lives.
Thanks Katie.

She was very thoughtful and insightful and I would recommend her to others.
