Welcome! My name is Dr. Stephanie Akl and I am a Psychologist in Miami, Florida. I provide therapy for a variety of personal needs, with special emphasis on treating anxiety, depression, and the effects of trauma. My primary focus as a therapist is to help you heal, grow, and become the best version of you. I believe in providing you with a safe, accepting atmosphere to achieve these changes, and I will be with you every step of the way. Life can be stressful enough…visiting a mental health professional to help get through it shouldn’t be! That’s why my approach is to start where you are, focus where you want to, and go at your pace.
In addition to providing therapy, I also specialize in psychological testing (also called “psychological evaluations”). I provide a wide variety of psychological evaluations and forensic evaluations, and I am able to travel for these depending on your needs. There is much more information on both my therapy and evaluation services throughout this website, so feel free to look around. Or, if you’re short on time or know exactly what you need, call or e-mail me today to schedule your free initial consultation to discuss your needs!
I offer the following services for adults, adolescents, and children:
I currently provide therapy services and some psychological evaluations virtually via Zoom. If you haven't tried this platform for therapy before, have no fear--research tells us that it's just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as the fit between therapist and patient is good. We can schedule our initial consultation using Zoom if you'd like to test the waters a bit. Or, if you're a Zoom pro, contact me today to set up a consult or an appointment.
Join me weekly on Fridays (12:00 pm EST) for an EPPP Study Group held via Zoom, or plan for one or more individual (one-on-one) EPPP coaching sessions. Group provides camaraderie and a faster, more efficient intake of information. Individual sessions allow for a slower pace, deeper mastery, and discussion of specific test-taking skills and strategies that can help you conquer the exam come test day.
