Mariana Carabantes, Psy.D. – Licensed Psychologist & Health Coach
I am a private practice psychologist serving clients in person, in and around Miami, as well as online for the whole State of Florida. As your therapist, it is my priority to create a safe atmosphere that promotes growth and positive change, for you. I look forward to working with you to address your challenges and realize your goals. Therapy is a process that can move you toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the life you desire.
I use a variety of approaches to address my clients unique needs. Many successful treatment plans will utilize a combination of approaches (behavioral, biopsychosocial, cognitive/cognitive-behavioral, eclectic, emdr, psychodynamic, solution-focused brief therapy) and quickly move toward a tailored treatment plan that includes tools to help sustain the growth experienced in regular therapy.
Additionally, there is a growing body of research that supports the practice of self-compassion and mindfulness in psychotherapy. Neuroscience research reveals individuals that practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is my honor and mission to help my clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential individually and in their relationships.
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
