Fringe Counseling Collective serves to assist individuals and families in Florida achieve growth, healing, and wellness. Our therapists are professionally trained in a variety of evidence-based treatments.
OCD & Anxiety
If you are living with OCD, you are familiar with the vicious cycle of intrusive thoughts, distress, and patterns of fear, avoidance and compulsions. OCD is often misdiagnosed or confused with GAD. In Generalized Anxiety Disorder, the constant worry and feeling on edge make life feel exhausting and out-of-control. You may find your relationships starting to suffer and even hobbies feel overwhelming.
Therapists at Fringe are knowledgeable and well-trained in Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Exposure Therapy (ERP) to expertly guide you toward long-term recovery with skills for life.
Stress, Trauma & PTSD
Sometimes, memories are too painful to face because of trauma or chronic stress. The brain represses, or hides, them away in an attempt to escape discomfort. Eventually this pain starts showing up in the body in the form of anxiety, depression, fear, avoidance, or anger. Trauma therapy aims to confront and heal the parts of you that hide those feelings and memories away, so they no longer feel painful or make the world seem like a terrible place.
Therapists at Fringe are trained in TF-CBT, Written Exposure Treatment, Mindfulness based Interventions, and Somatic Therapy to help you move through toxic stress and trauma.
Families & Parenting
Every family is unique. Whether you're a single parent, have a loving partner, or your family is non-traditional, children do not come with instructions. Parenting is especially difficult when children or teens struggle with behavior or big feelings. You might feel hurt, confused, or disconnected from your family - especially when your own childhood wounds resurface as a parent. Therapy can help the whole family heal with better communication, understanding, and acceptance. Therapists at Fringe are trained in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Play Therapy, and Supportive Parenting Interventions to help bring peace and healing to your family.
ADHD, SPD, ASD, Gifted
At Fringe, our therapists are neurodivergent-affirming and/or identifying. We do not view neurodivergency as a flaw or illness that needs to be fixed. Instead, we work with you to develop functional skills, reduce shame/guilt/embarrassment, and learn to live an authentic life mask-free.
Building a Brave Space
Those who identify as LGBTQIA+, face unique stressors including increased violence, stigma, and discrimination, especially in Florida right now where trans and queer right are at stake. At Fringe, we validate all clients' experiences and advocate for a safe, respectful, and inclusive environment, while walking the path with you as members of the queer community.
Compared to women, men are significantly less likely to seek treatment for depression, trauma, and anger. After all, society sends a strong message about male gender roles that leave little space for men to safely express their true needs and sensitivities. We understand that men's needs are different, but equal, to women's. We skillfully help men come into their own natural power in a holistic, balanced, and value-driven way.
Kink and Poly Allied
Sex is an important part of the human experience, but can also feel deeply shameful when our culture or family view sex as morally wrong and as something that should be suppressed, controlled, or "cured." This can be especially true among sexually marginalized communities, such as those who explore kink, BDSM, ethical non-monogamy, and other often stigmatized sexual interests/preferences.
