Merissa Goolsarran, LCSW

Making the decision to start or resume counseling can be daunting. I am here to empower and support clients on their journey. My specialties include working with clients who are experiencing anxiety and relationship issues. I also specialize in mental health issues that are prevalent in the Caribbean/West-Indian and South Asian communities (perfectionism, intergenerational trauma, people pleasing, burnout, etc.).

Online therapy makes it easier to find and connect with the therapist that is right for you. You no longer have to search for things like "South Asian therapist near me" or "Miami anxiety therapist." 

Online therapy can be safe, easy, and convenient.
