Oftentimes, there is that inner voice in our head that has become more of a critic instead of a friend. We have trained our minds to overthink, overanalyze, and overcomplicate daily situations. My name is Hara Wachholder and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Florida. I specialize in working with teens and adults looking to shift their perspective of themselves and the world around them. As an empath myself, my goal is to serve as a guide that will assist you in processing the past, improving the present and creating a more positive future for you and your loved ones.
Entering into therapy is a big step, and I feel that an important aspect of helping you to comfortably make this step is providing a safe and supportive therapeutic environment. People begin counseling because they want something to shift or change in their lives. I facilitate positive change by encouraging exploration, processing relevant issues with you, and helping you to identify healthy and unhealthy coping mechanisms in your life with the purpose of changing those that are not adaptive.

Non judgmental, non prescriptive; I will provide a thoughtful analysis of your problems and their solutions.I am a board certified clinical psychologist offering psychological services to adults, children, and families.
Stresses in life happen all the time, and sometimes we just need that extra support to get through them! I've worked with and enjoy working with clients of all ages.

I have been practicing Marriage and Family Therapy and individual therapy since 2005. Marriage is a bond that is often difficult to keep together as a couple goes through difficult times. Therapy will focus on components to assist clients from being stuck in their own way of thinking and processing. It is the stuck place that often brings people to feelings of helplessness, depression, anxiety and not perceiving issues with hope and options for change. I specialize in helping couples working through more severe issues, such as, infidelity, personality disorders, etc.

Is the transition to motherhood more difficult than you expected? Do you wonder what you're doing wrong? You may be tired of the sadness, guilt, worry, scary thoughts, and anger. You may be feeling disconnected and isolated, wondering if you're cut out for motherhood. You might not even remember how you felt before all of this started. But one thing is for sure: you're ready for some relief. You're ready to start feeling like yourself again. You're ready to reconnect with your loved ones and enjoy your children. Most of all, you're ready to find joy and contentment in motherhood.
Are you struggling to understand why life has become so difficult? Are you trying to navigate feelings of shame, unworthiness, sadness, depression alone? Does your heart feel weighed down by an ache that you can’t quite put into words? Even worse, the people in your life that you love and care about have no idea how much pain you are in? People tell you to “get over it” and that everyone “has bad days”. It doesn’t have to be this way. You feel your emotions on a deep, intense level that no one else seems to understand? Help and healing are closer than you think.

Are you a woman experiencing anxiety and depression from all the different roles and responsibilities in your life? Are you a mother who is pregnant, recently delivered, or has small children you are trying to keep up with? Do you feel overwhelmed by the daily tasks involved with being a wife, mother, and friend? Are you tired of trying to be everything for everyone else and not feeling supported? Imagine a life where you feel relaxed, happy and fulfilled. A life where you can give yourself to the ones you love, without giving too much of yourself. A life where you don't feel shame or guilt when you prioritize self-care.
Do you frequently feel nervous, anxious, sad, or unmotivated? Have you had many difficult relationships, partner(s) or family members that leave you feeling down or unheard?

You have what it takes to achieve wholeness, and I can help you take the steps to get there.
Your well-being is the foundation that serves you in life and self-care can often fall to the bottom of the list. Although life may seem uneasy right now, addressing your own needs should not be seen as a selfish act, but rather a path to self-preservation.

I believe therapy is a process that provides the guidance and tools necessary for change; change which can lead to a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
