My name is Andrea Dawson. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Tampa, and completed my Masters at Nova Southeastern University. I have over 10 years of experience working with children and adults in both inpatient and outpatients settings. I have extensive experience working with various psychiatric conditions, ranging from depression, anxiety, early childhood abuse, behavior problems, and mood disorders. I specialize in cognitive behavioral techniques in treating patients. My approach is tailored to each person's individual needs, for a better long term prognosis. My goal is to help others develop the necessary tools to help themselves and improve their overall emotional and physical wellbeing.
