Dolores T Puterbaugh, PhD, LMHC, LMFT, NCC, Counselor in Largo
Anxious? Depressed? Is your relationship struggling? Are you finding it hard to adjust to a new phase of life? Please call today for a free 10 minute consult. I'm dually licensed in marriage & family therapy, and mental health counseling, with over 15 years' experience. I would like to help you heal relationships, reclaim your life from anxiety or depression, break free from trauma, and reduce stress. Don't postpone getting help; each day spent unhappy is a day spent rehearsing being unhappy...instead, become the joyful and purposeful person you were meant to be. Call or email today.
I work with adults, teens and children; individuals, couples and families. Specialties include couples, families, depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, grief, gifted/High IQ and life stage/phase adjustment. I believe counseling should provide emotional support, insight and skills that allow you to make meaningful, positive changes in your life.
I'm dually licensed in Mental Health Counseling & Marriage & Family Therapy. My training in Lay Pastoral Ministry helps me respectfully integrate faith into our work, if you wish. Approved counselor through scholarship for post-9/11 veterans, military & family through Camaraderie. Learn more about my work at
