About Me

Meet Your Therapist

Hello! I’m Dominique

Board-Certified Counselor, Certified Family Therapist, Reg. Mental Health Counselor Intern

Thank you for being a visitor here! My name is Dominique Battle and I am a Mental Health and Couples Therapist specializing in individual, couples and family therapy. I am also a Life Transformation Strategist. What that means is that I help to identify barriers, create actionable plans, and implement strategies to assist in navigating difficult life transitions to improve personal and professional development. I believe in the power of transformation and how impactful it can be to begin the process of unlearning negative messages that we were taught in our upbringing, bad habits, and dysfunctional cycles of how we interact with people and ourselves so that we can learn new ways to thrive in our lives, personally, relationally, and professionally.  Being able to be a part of your journey, how you power through the hurts and pains in your life and to see the AMAZING individual or couple that you transform into at the end of our time together is why I do what I do. I learn just as much as you learn in the therapeutic process and I can’t wait work with you!

I currently own and operate private practice locations in Winter Park, Florida and Tampa, FL and I have over 8 years of education, training, and experience in the mental heath field. Professionally, I hold the credentials of Board-Certified Counselor, certified by the National Board of Certified Counselors, the credential of Certified Family Therapist, certified by the National Credentialing Academy of Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapists and I am a Licensed-Associate, approved by the Department of Health and the State of Florida as a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern (License #: IMH17725), registered with the Florida Board of Clinical Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapy, and Mental Health Counseling and operate under the clinical supervision of Qualified Supervisor, Chasity Chandler, LMHC, MCAP, ICADC, CST, CDWF. Additionally, I am qualified to offer services in-office and via secured, HIPAA-compliant video to provide services to individuals with busy schedules. I specialize in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally-Focused Therapy, Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Trauma-Informed Care and Systems Theory. 

My Approach & Values

I have a passion for working with women-in-transition and helping them navigate successfully from one phase of their lives to another. I find that I deeply resonate with people who are on this path and looking to come out happier and healthier on the other side. I enjoy working with women who are struggling to get through a heartbreak, to navigate the phases of divorce, women who are changing career paths and are unsure how to find their passion, women who are new moms and new wives trying to balance their roles with self-care for themselves, and women who are struggling to find meaning in their life. You know that you are in a place of change and evolution but are having difficulty with the uncertainty and fear that it brings. You’re having a hard time finding “you” in the midst of all of your responsibilities and obligations. As someone who also works with couples and families, I enjoy working with couples who are struggling with infidelity issues, issues with trust and struggling to manage the careers of each partner as well as find time to nurture their relationship. My specialties include couples and family therapy, women’s issues, depression, anxiety, and life adjustment issues.
