Hello and welcome!
My name is Antwan McKenzie-Plez, The Expectation Grief Specialist. Counselor by Profession... Healer by Calling. I am currently a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Florida.
I hold a Bachelor of Science in ESE K-12, a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and a Graduate Certification in Alcohol & Drug Abuse Counseling.
I am trained and experienced in providing various types of therapy, including EMDR, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Trauma-Focused CBT just to name a few.
I am experienced in treating a myriad of issues, including anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma-related disorders.
I work with individuals ages 11 and up, and provide a focus on helping people survive and thrive in the systems they live in, with particular focus on the ever present role that unresolved grief plays in many of our situations in which we feel “stuck”- unable to move forward with life. My clients benefit from learning what it is that is causing them to feel stuck, and then becoming empowered to take effective action in their own lives toward getting “un-stuck”. Sometimes this includes freeing oneself from the bondage of expectations, which can sometimes keep us from living as our truest and most authentic self.
I am a strong advocate for all gender minorities, to include cisgender women, women of color, and trans-identified individuals.
I am a fierce defender of every child’s right to live and grow in a supportive and loving environment, and a champion for families.
I am an advocate for human rights for all people. My therapy office is a safe space for all people.
