About Andrea Puech
Counselor, MS, LMHC
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor bringing extensive experience and training in counseling individuals and groups from diverse ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds, including adolescents, adults, and the geriatric population. I bring to the psychotherapy sessions an international and varied background particularly suited to cater and help Florida’s vibrant and diverse community. I am a trilingual individual, fluent in English, Spanish, and French who has lived in 5 countries and several cities in the United States, Europe, and South America. I work with a wide array of issues including, anxiety, depression, trauma, stress-related problems, grief and loss, cross-cultural issues, substance abuse, anger management, domestic violence, parenting, family and couples’ relationships, life transitions and simply helping people overcome their problems and live richer and gratifying lives. As a psychotherapist, I strive to mix traditional “talk therapy” with more experiential methods.
My integrative approach takes advantage of the latest research in psychology and neuroscience that helps to understand how individual’s minds and bodies get “stuck” when problems and issues arise, and how they can get “unstuck”, find emotional regulation, explore new behaviors and habits, and create a more vital, meaningful life. I provide psychotherapy through a strengths-based perspective using a variety of evidence-based treatment practices such as Trauma-informed therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Relational life therapy Solution Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Mindfulness, and a Psychodynamic approach. Finally, I have been trained in the administration of a variety of Assessments: Mental Health Evaluations, Domestic Violence, Parenting, Anger Management, Trauma, and Substance Abuse.
I encourage you to contact me if you have questions about my work and my ability to help you. Changes in life happen when we feel listened, understood and accepted without judgment. I am convinced therapy can have a positive impact in your life!!!
