I am Craig Lampkin and a Native New Yorker. I became a Marriage and Family Therapist because I enjoy processing with individuals and listening to personal journeys, ultimately finding a resolution. I went to a Performing Arts High School in New York City. This experience empowered me to have a unique therapeutic approach. Individuals can learn new coping, decision-making, and problem-solving skills by providing therapy through visual cues and using various therapeutic methods and modalities.
I received my BA from Binghamton University in Psychology and MS from Florida State University in Child, Family, and Consumer Sciences, emphasizing Family Relations. I am a Florida Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I am the owner of Rothschild Counseling and Consulting, LLC in Tallahassee, Florida. With over 30 years of experience working with children and families. My scope of practice is in Marriage and Family Counseling, Domestic Violence and Batter Intervention, Child Welfare, Child-Parent Psychotherapy, Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Parenting, Anger Management, Child Development, Individual and Group Counseling. I enjoy going to the gym, movies, socializing with friends/family, and singing in my free time.
As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I find this a unique challenge for couples and families. When two individuals enter a union, they bring a new relationship between their childhood experience and family life experiences. Marriage and Family Therapy's clinical journey brings together the unique qualities, challenges, and building a new foundation to create a new life together.
I specialize in working with children and families in child welfare. I particularly enjoy working with young children and teens since these are some of the most challenging developmental years. Often, clients in this age group experience trauma and distress from systemic and familial patterns of behavior.
Parenting is also a challenge. The daily stressors parents have in today's fast-paced life result in low parental capacities and protective factors.
Working in trauma is challenging; when individuals experiencing domestic violence are batterers with low insight into their abuse, substance use has difficulty caring for themselves and others. I've worked with Human Trafficking victims and the LGBTQAI+ community. When individuals' basic needs, shelter, food, and clothing and not met, it's challenging to focus on their mental health challenges.
Adolescents are a period of life with specific health and developmental needs and rights. It is also a time to develop knowledge and skills, manage emotions and relationships, acquire attributes and abilities, and transition into adulthood. These are the years that mold our young population to blaze new trails and hand the torch to further our communities.
I enjoy working with an individual with Developmental Disabilities. This unique population has an increase in resilience as they learn to understand the environment. I want to process with individuals through rehabilitation supports to ameliorate behavioral challenges. Collaboration with social and paid supports is the pinnacle in this population's well-being to ensure stability while increasing coping, problem-solving, and decision-making skills.
Therapeutic modalities are tools I use to decrease problem behaviors while increasing cognitive, physical, emotional development. Some modalities are Cognitive Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Therapy, Narrative, Structural Therapy, Strategic Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy.
I invite you to take a personal therapeutic journey with me. This journey will increase mental health and a greater sense of well-being for your mind, body, and soul.
