  • Where are you located?
    Our main office is located at 851 5th Ave. North, Suite 201 Naples 34102. We are about 1 block north of the NCH Downtown Baker Campus, facing US-41 Tamiami Trail. We also have therapists located on campus at the Main Campus of Collier County Government and the Administration building for Collier County Public Schools. All locations are wheelchair accessible.
  • Am I a good candidate for therapy?
    We believe therapy is for everyone. Whether you’re hoping to reduce symptoms of severe mental illness or increase daily well-being, there is space for you here. Readiness is one of the great indicators of therapeutic success. Our staff is here to help you on your journey to health and well-being whenever you are ready.
  • How long does therapy last?
    Each client has a unique background, distinct goals, and varying availability. We often find that significant progress can be made within six to eight sessions. Some clients see progress sooner, others prefer to work more slowly and deliberately if their journey is prolonged. Most clients are seen on a bi-weekly basis. The Emotional Wellness department is committed to providing tools and preparation to equip you beyond your sessions. It is not in your best interest to keep you longer than you need help, nor is it ethical practice for therapy to extend beyond the goals and needs of the client. We hope to empower you as a person, helping you meet your emotional and relational goals and equipping you to do so long after sessions have ended. Each client works with their therapist to establish treatment goals that meet their needs and address their individual story and complexity with compassion and integrity.
  • What if I don't feel like my therapist is a good fit?
    Don’t worry, we don’t take it personally. Not everyone is a good fit. We completely get that. You have the right to choose your therapist and to switch therapists at any time. We want you to feel good about your choice, and we will work hard to find the right therapist for you, even if that means referring you to providers outside our practice. If you don’t feel like your therapist is a good fit, just let us know. You can speak with your therapist directly, or you can reach out to our Director at .
  • Are sessions confidential?
    The Emotional Wellness department considers confidentiality one of the key components of the therapeutic relationship. Your stories, personal feelings, emotions, and histories are your privilege to share and completely yours to entrust within the confines of your sessions. If you are meeting in the office, please know that the utmost effort has gone into making the room secure and private. If online sessions are held within your own home, you can feel comfortable that you are in control of the environment around you. Prior to your first session, you will review and sign our Client Intake/Consent Paperwork. This agreement includes Informed Consent and clarifies how information is shared and kept confidential. It should be noted that there are a few exceptions to the limitations of confidentiality, in accordance with Florida state law as well as professional ethics and guidelines: If your therapist believes you are at risk of hurting yourself or another person, your therapist may breach confidentiality to protect your or parties in potential harm. If your therapist suspects child or elder abuse in any form, Florida state law requires your therapist to report any relevant information to the proper authorities. If your therapist is subpoenaed for court, your therapist may be required to disclose confidential information, though every effort will be given to uphold and protect your rights and you will be notified of the subpoena prior to any disclosure.
  • What is a Marriage and Family Therapist?
    Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs) are mental health professionals trained in psychotherapy who diagnose and treat mental and emotional disorders within the context of relationship systems. MFTs focus on understanding your problems from a systemic, relational perspective. Marriage and Family Therapists are recognized as a core mental health profession along with psychiatry, psychology, social work, and psychiatric nursing. MFTs take a holistic perspective to health care, and they are concerned with the overall, long-term well-being of individuals and their families.
  • What Is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW)?
    Licensed Clinical Social Workers are mental health professionals who are eligible to provide clinical services at an independent level. They are able to assess, diagnose and provide treatment for mental, emotional and behavioral issues. Licensed Clinical Social Workers also educate the public and bring awareness to mental health issues. This advocacy helps to remove the stigma of mental illness, which can be a barrier to obtaining treatment.
  • What Is the difference Between Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Social Workers and Marriage and Family Therapists?
    Professionals who provide psychotherapy include psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, licensed professional clinical counselors, licensed marriage and family therapists, pastoral counselors and psychiatric nurse practitioners. Of that group, psychologists, psychiatrists and social workers are the most common. All these professionals are trained to offer psychotherapy, but there are differences in their education and training. Psychologists attend graduate school in psychology. The American Psychological Association recognizes the doctoral degree as the minimum educational requirement for psychologists; these degrees include the PhD (Doctor of Philosophy), PsyD (doctor of psychology), or EdD (doctor of education). Some states allow people with master's degrees in psychology to use the term “psychologist.” Graduate training focuses on all aspects of human behavior, with an emphasis on research and scientific methods. Training for the PhD, PsyD, and EdD typically includes four to six years of academic preparation, followed by one to two years of full-time supervised work with patients and licensing examinations. Psychologists in some states can prescribe psychiatric medications with additional training, although this is not the case in most states. Psychiatrists attend medical school and earn an MD (Doctor of Medicine) or DO (doctor of osteopathic medicine) degree. They can go on for additional, specialized training in psychiatry during residency (an additional three to four years). Training for psychiatrists focuses primarily on biological aspects of mental illness. Because of their medical training, psychiatrists can prescribe medications, and their work with clients may include talk therapy combined with medications. Social workers attend graduate school in social work, earning an MSW (Master of Social Work) or LCSW (licensed clinical social worker) degree. Training typically includes two years of coursework and practical experience working at agencies in the community. Social workers are trained to perform psychotherapy, with a particular emphasis on connecting people with the community and support services available there. Marriage and Family Therapists often have a graduate degree in Mental Health Counseling and then proceed with a license in the mental health profession of Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy or Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMFT/LMHC).
  • What are your hours?
    Our offices are open from 7am to 8pm Monday through Saturday. Availability varies depending on the therapist, and we will do our best to accommodate your scheduling needs.
  • What are your methods of payment?
    We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit cards. We accept debit, FSA, and HSA cards. We accept cash and personal checks. Payment is due at the end of each session.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    All appointments must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance, or a $50 fee will be charged. You can reschedule or cancel your appointment by communicating with our secure voicemail at 239-659-7751 or our secure email at Of course, we understand that life happens. Sickness, accidents, and emergencies can be entirely unpredictable and sometimes 24 hours notice is impossible. Grace and compassion will be extended to those with extenuating circumstances, and no charge will ever be made when canceling due to inclement weather, as safety always comes first.
  • Do you offer teletherapy? How does it work?
    Yes, our therapists offer teletherapy. Our teletherapy is conducted on a secure platform that is embedded in our EHR software. Instead of meeting your therapist in our offices, you’ll meet via video conferencing software. You and our staff will schedule a time to meet online, then your therapist will send you a link to join the video call. When you click on the link, you’ll see your therapist appear on your screen, and your session will progress as it would in-person. It is essential that the client is in a secure, private and safe location while the session is taking place.
  • This is my first time going to therapy, what should I expect on the first visit?
    Welcome! It is totally normal to be a little nervous or apprehensive about starting therapy, the therapeutic relationship is a deeply personal experience. On your first visit, many therapists begin with reviewing any paperwork, assessments and discussing what brought you into the office today. Often times the therapist is going to review the biopsychosocial history of a client and the issues they are struggling with. The first session is very client centered and trauma informed regarding presenting problem, goals and building rapport. In many ways, therapy feels like a personal and open conversation about things that we are struggling with or feel conflicted about…a therapist is there to facilitate the conversation while using their clinical expertise to assess the issue, provide feedback, interventions, solutions, referrals, and recommendations.
  • What is the process for making an appointment?
    Prospective clients can access our intake forms on our website Emotional Wellness | Community Health Partners | Naples and submit our intake and registrations forms from our website. Once our intake coordinators have all the signed and completed forms, they will contact you and proceed with booking your appointment with a clinician who matches your needs and your schedule. We will not book or hold appointments until completed paperwork has been received, this allows us to ensure the safety and ethical nature of the client/therapist relationship.
  • How many appointments can I book at once?
    Usually this is decided between the therapist and the client and is dependent on the treatment plan and level of care needed. Most clients are seen bi-weekly and usually therapists will book out a maximum of 3 appointments in order to preserve the fluidity of their schedule. Multiple appointments in the same week can usually not be accommodated as for many clients that would indicate the necessity of a higher level of care such as an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).
  • There has been domestic violence in my relationship, can we come in for couples counseling?
    Couples counseling when there has been domestic violence of any kind is contraindicated, unsafe and unethical. Domestic violence is often about power and control and couples therapy can exacerbate the safety issues and it doesn’t allow for a safe environment for the therapeutic process to occur. Domestic violence is not a relationship problem, and therefore can’t be treated in couples counseling. If you are a victim of domestic violence and/or feel unsafe in your relationship, please work with your individual therapist to develop a safety plan or access the following resources. Florida Department of Children and Families | Safety and Protection National Domestic Violence Hotline National Coalition Against Domestic Violence The Shelter for Abused Women and Children
  • I have forms (FMLA, school notes, disability etc.) that I need my therapist to fill out and submit, how do I proceed?

Please be mindful that the turnaround time for these requests is between 3-7 business days.

  • Do you offer Intensive Outpatient Programs or multiple appointments in a week for those needing a higher level of care?
    Unfortunately, the structure of our practice does not allow us to provide Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP), partial hospitalization programs, urinalysis and other lab work, or services for those experiencing a high level of acuity in their mental health care needs.
