Dr. Carlos Garcia
I am the owner and lead therapist at Tampa Counseling and Wellness. I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Coach, and Speaker. I provide counseling and coaching to individuals looking to positively transform their lives. My areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, grief, and post-traumatic stress, as well as issues around faith and spirituality. I also work with individuals who struggle with motivation and self-confidence. I specialize in working with veterans, police officers, firefighter and other first responders. As a business owner and entrepreneur, I also work with executives and business owners looking to take their performance and leadership to the next level. I also specialize in working with college and professional athletes. I help my clients get unchained from the past, overcome mental blocks, and find the confidence they need to live more fulfilling, successful, and empowered lives.
I received my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from Nova Southeastern University and completed my residency at Rutgers University. I also served in the armed forces as a United States Marine and as a firefighter and paramedic prior to receiving my doctorate degree. I am not about a “quick fix,” but instead focus on helping you uncover the unconscious drives and fears that have been holding you back. My goal is not just to alleviate your symptoms, but to guide you toward deep personal growth. I believe there is no greater joy than becoming the person you have always wanted to become.
I have spent over 25 years working on myself and believe that the best coaches, counselors, and therapists are those that have done their own “self-work.” My journey has been challenging but it has also helped me to grow in ways that deepen my understanding of what it means to overcome challenges and thrive in life. I’m driven by a deep passion to help others find themselves and create lives of impact and profound change.
