Total Life Counseling Center, MA, LMHC, NCC, Treatment Center in Orlando

We take the guesswork out of finding a counselor!

Having a hard time finding the right counselor? We have heard the following statement for years by people saying "I wish we knew you years ago!" or "We tried 4 counselors before we found you and they did not give us a plan." "You gave us a plan on the first day or second session!" We take the guesswork out of finding a right counselor! The media has asked us to do over 150 local and national news interviews like Fox, ABC, CBS, NBC, etc. Jim West, the president of Total Life Counseling Center, has a unique way of connecting quickly with children, adolescents and young adults through recreation therapy, interactive games, play therapy and traditional therapies. His clients travel internationally and all over the state of Florida. His Summer Camps incorporate a Challenge Ropes Course to accelerate learning and according to parents testimonials the camps and social skill groups have helped students mature 1-2 years socially and emotionally, and increase confidence, compliance, and improved leadership skills. Jim has also been invited to provide consultation to several accreditation boards, private and public schools in the state of Florida for ADHD and bullying.

Holistic Alternatives before trying Medications

At TLC we look at more than just the "mind," we look at the Total person. 85% of our clients are stabilized with therapies and FDA approved supplements instead of medication under the guidance of their physician. However, when needed we do refer to the best psychiatrists in the community. We have worked with clients and their prescribers to help them reduce their medication in many cases to zero.

Traditional, Relational & Recreation Play Therapy

We incorporate traditional therapies as well as warm relational approaches such as recreational therapy, play therapy, challenge courses, and Leadership social skills groups and Camps. We offer court approved parenting, co-parenting and anger management classes. We have a family mediator, collaborative neutral and a registered play therapist supervisors on staff as well as marriage and relationship experts in our Orlando, Clermont, Winter Park, Lake Mary and East Orlando offices!
