Being a Teen or Young-Adult presents unique challenges that can impact the rest of the life-span. I have over 20 years combined experience working with this population in both academic and private-practice environments to promote healthy development and habits to set the foundation for a successful and productive future. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a Certified School Counselor in the state of Florida, and hold a Doctorate degree in Counseling Psychology from Argosy University. My areas of particular focus working with teens and young adults include: academic success, social difficulties and family relationships, college and/or career planning, improving confidence and self-concept, decision-making and goal-setting. I use evidence based therapeutic techniques of Cognitive Behavioral, Solution Focused, and Brief Psychodynamic orientations to achieve noticeable results in a short period of time. You will find that I am warm and accepting, with a person-centered, open-minded style based on humanistic principles. I look forward to meeting you!

We appreciate Dr. Hart's wise counsel and help for our daughter in transition between high school and adulthood. Dr. Hart has given her several good tools to help her feel more equipped to navigate her challenges.

Dr. Hart has made a huge impact on my well-being while I’m going through some difficult things. She’s amazing.
Dr Hart has been really helpful and our situation improved a lot after 4 weeks of counseling with her. Dr Hart tries to understand each of our own situations in the beginning and then do a combined counseling, which was really effective in my opinion. She makes us refocus more on the positive things which helps us to recover and move on from the bad times. She's also really responsive and able to slot phone/video session when we needed with urgency. We are really grateful for her help and now is time for us to try on our own. Thank you so much Dr Hart : )

Doctor Hart is the best therapist I’ve ever had. She is extremely warm and supportive but also very professional. I couldn’t recommend her more highly
Dr. Hart is an extremely caring person who listens to your problems and expresses empathy towards situations… I really like the way she presents A problem as more than that but a solution as well… She is quick to find the silver lining in a situation and it has also helped my partner and I to be more grateful… I couldn’t have asked for a better therapist
Dr. Hart really listens. She helped me summarize my thoughts and feelings into manageable chunks without losing authenticity. She was also transparent and candid. When I shared my worries about therapy and my objectives, she met me where I was, and her professionalism and experience shone through. I look forward to my sessions every week!
I'm still in my early sessions with Dr. Hart but she is already providing me with really constructive advice for my current issues whilst tapping into the subconscious reasons as to why they're happening - it's been a great start!
Dr. Hart is a great counselor. She is an excellent listener, good communicator, and she is understanding of the situations I present to her. She is extremely empathetic to the emotions I am experiencing and offers practical ways of dealing with them and improving my life. She is also highly intelligent and intellectually curious, and as such she provides helpful information and context that helps me understand and put my challenges into better perspective. I highly recommend Dr. Hart!
She is great!
