Our Therapists Are the Difference

Successful therapy depends on the relationship between you and the therapist. One of the most important steps when choosing therapy is choosing someone who makes you feel comfortable and understood. 

Many of our clients have had undesirable therapy experiences, due to their lack of connection or confidence in their last counselor. We have a variety of professional personalities, so that you can find the best fit for you. It is our goal to improve the mental health of as many people as possible in the Pinellas County area.

Our Therapists Are the Difference

Successful therapy depends on the relationship between you and the therapist. If you don’t hit it off, it won’t work. We have seen countless clients who have had either a poor counseling experience in the past in addition to those who were initially hesitant to attend therapy that leave the first session feeling confident and at peace in knowing they connect with the person who understands what they’re going through.

Our goal is to improve the mental health of as many people as possible in the Pinellas County area. Our therapists are experts and provide a wide range of counseling services.

    So glad to see this fine agency is growing and thriving. If you are looking for therapy that will provide the right combination of encouragement and guidance to help you through challenging emotions and circumstances, you have found the … More right place! They bring years of experience, insight, and empathy to a safe and caring counseling relationship that fosters change, growth., or simply a relaxed atmosphere where you can “talk things through” and discover tools to help you manage anxiety, trauma, depression, or achieve a healthy life balance in today’s stressful world. They truly care about your well-being !
  • Avatar Amanda Fett ★★★★★ in the last week
    I met Carolyn at a pivotal moment in my life and I can say with the utmost confidence that I would not be in the position I am today without her. She helped change the trajectory of my life. I am forever grateful for the genuine concern, … More empathy, and insight she shared with me. Therapy with Carolyn does not feel like your "run of the mill" counseling, but more of a heartfelt conversation. She came recommended to me as someone who can "fix me right up" and that is certainly how I feel to this day. Carolyn is a very special person with an extraordinary gift. McNulty Counseling and Wellness is an exceptional institution and one I would recommend to anyone seeking guidance and true, genuine care and concern.

    I have been seeing Soula for over a year and a half now, and she makes therapy feel more like sitting down with an old friend. She has helped me work on my personal goals and growth. Everyone should have a Soula!
  • Avatar R R ★★★★★ 2 weeks ago
    Travis and his team are some of the most welcoming and friendly people in their field. I was hesitant at first to pursue counseling due to some past experiences, and they were able to provide a level of service that instantly put me at … More ease. I would highly recommend this group to anyone!
