Isabel Tanenbaum is a bilingual (English/Spanish) Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and Master Certified Addictions Professional (CAP). Her personal belief is that life is a journey, where each day we add another piece to our individual puzzle of life. At times, these pieces do not fit the way we think they should. When this happens, it can create feelings of being confused, overwhelmed, trapped, frustrated or powerless. Instead of life being a positive journey, it can feel like a struggle. With this in mind, Isabel founded Beginnings Counseling in order to provide the most individualized, personal counseling to her clients.
For more than 14 years, Isabel has helped and encouraged individuals to move through life’s surprises and challenges with courage and perseverance. Though life’s storms are always on the horizon, Isabel shows her clients how to take the necessary precautions and learn to weather the storm in a collaborative, respectful, safe, caring, non-judgmental environment.
Isabel is a member of The National Board of Certified Counselors and certified by EMDRIA. She is a Florida Supreme Court-certified family mediator, Parenting Coordinator in fourth judicial circuit and a Domestic Violence Assessor for the state of Florida. She carries a certification for Eye Movement and Desensitization Reprocessing therapy (EMDR), Emotional Feeling Technique (EFT) and hypnosis. These specialized techniques allow Isabel to address issues in a more condensed time frame, offering additional solutions beyond traditional therapy.
Isabel provides comprehensive counseling services in most all areas, with special expertise in: individual, couple, family, adult and adolescent psychotherapy; trauma psychotherapy for stress disorders, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID); substance abuse; domestic violence and anger management; relationship and family issues arising from parenting, parenting coordination, divorce and blended families; and mood disorders like depression, anxiety and bi-polarism.
