About Kristina Fecik
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist
Hi, I am Kristina Fecik. I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and I belong to the group private practice called The Psychology Group located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Relationships Within Reach is a marriage and family therapy practice that was developed with the idea that each person’s desires within a relationship are possible to obtain.
Based on my experience in doing therapy with individuals, couples and families, I believe that obstacles can be overcome; goals can be achieved; and situations that appear hopeless, can improve.
In therapy, I provide a safe, supportive and nonjudgmental environment where problems can be discussed. I seek to understand my clients' concerns, in order to help them identify and make the adjustments necessary for them to achieve their individual, relationship and family goals.
I have a Master's Degree from Nova Southeastern University's School of Humanities and Social Sciences and I am currently a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, MT 2854, in the state of Florida.
In addition to my private practice, I have worked in a variety of settings with various popuations including:
Drug rehabilitation with adults recovering from substance dependence.
In-home therapy with children, families and couples exposed to domestic violence, child abuse and/or neglect through the Department of Children and Families; the goal being to improve communication and living circumstances so to ensure the safety of the children and preserve the family unit.
With the public school system assisting teens, children and families with school issues such test anxiety, feeling overwhelmed by school pressures, adjusting to divorce or separation in the family, grief or loss, behavioral issues, self esteem and bullying.
With patients diagnosed with various psychiatric disorders such as Bipolar Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Major Depressive Disporder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder/ Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Schizophrenia in an intensive outpatient hospital and with the elderly in a nursing home setting.
Prior to my work as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I studied and conducted research in the area of Organizational and Industrial Psychology and have maintained this area of interest. Blending my knowledge of the two fields, I seek to assist clients with relational issues such as in a family business or with individuals in their workplace.
