Supreme Court of Florida Mediator
Isabel Tanenbaum is a bilingual (English/Spanish) Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and Master Certified Addictions Professional (MCAP) who strongly believes that life is an ever-evolving journey, where each day adds a unique piece to our individual puzzle. However, there are times when these pieces don't fit as we expect, leading to feelings of confusion, overwhelm, and powerlessness. Instead of embracing life as a positive journey, it can become a struggle. Motivated by this understanding, Isabel founded Beginnings Counseling to offer her clients the most personalized and tailored counseling experience.
With over 24 years of experience, Isabel has been a source of support and encouragement for individuals navigating life's surprises and challenges with courage and resilience. She acknowledges that life's storms are always on the horizon but guides her clients in taking necessary precautions and learning how to weather these storms in a collaborative, respectful, and safe environment, free from judgment.
Isabel's credentials include membership in The National Board of Certified Counselors and certification by EMDRIA. She is a Florida Supreme Court-certified family mediator, Parenting Coordinator in the fourth judicial circuit, and a Domestic Violence Assessor for the state of Florida. Additionally, she holds certifications for Eye Movement and Desensitization Reprocessing therapy (EMDR), Emotional Feeling Technique (EFT), and hypnosis. These specialized techniques allow Isabel to address issues more efficiently, offering effective solutions beyond traditional therapy.
Isabel provides comprehensive counseling services, with a particular focus on individual, couple, family, adult, and adolescent psychotherapy. Her expertise extends to trauma psychotherapy for stress disorders, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). She also specializes in substance abuse, domestic violence and anger management, and addresses relationship and family issues stemming from parenting, parenting coordination, divorce, and blended families. Moreover, Isabel offers support for mood disorders such as depression, anxiety, and bi-polarism.
Through her holistic approach and specialized techniques, Isabel Tanenbaum empowers her clients to overcome obstacles, heal from past traumas, and embrace the journey of life with newfound strength and resilience.
