Child, Adolescent, and Adult Counseling and Assessment Services

“As a psychologist with specialized training, I recognized the importance and need for an increase in high quality services to children, adolescents, adults and families, of all backgrounds seeking psychological services. This resulted in the expansion of being a single provider to running a group practice and bringing on board a team of amazing clinicians who could help meet the needs of others in the area. I am proud of the team by my side and look forward to bringing more clinicians on board to better serve those in the Tampa Bay Area. As you carefully consider what practice or clinician may best meet you or your loved one’s needs, we hope you consider us. We look forward to helping in any way we can.” Dr. Katie Merricks

why choose us?

  • At Katie Merricks Counseling, we believe it takes a provider with specialized training to address specific needs. We do not believe in a one-size-fits-all model, and recognize empirically based training for varying mental health disorders is imperative to reap the full benefits of treatment.

  • I, Dr. Merricks, field all initial phone calls. I do not have a secretary or outside service as I believe and understand the importance of speaking with a clinician when inquiring about services

  • We want you to be an educated consumer and an active participant in your treatment planning

  • We seek collaboration with other providers, such as pediatricians and psychiatrists, who may be important in your or your loved one's treatment
