My name is Chemal (Sha-mall) and welcome to Within Arms Reach Counseling, LLC. I have a Latino - Caribbean background and prescribe to the label of islander. Where I’m from they use the term “crazy people” without clear understanding of what it truly means, but as a therapist and person, I believe differences exist beneficially and I try to understand them all. I aspire to be my best everyday inside and outside of therapy. I love nature, basketball, soccer, family and exploring the mind. Therapy is not just a career for me, but a passion. I have also been in the Florida Army National Guard for 7.5 years.
I am a LMHC, NNC, CCTP specializing in Couple's Therapy and Trauma. I am motivated to help anyone, but specifically look to aid couple's who no longer connect emotionally, verbally or physically. Gottman therapy is my foundation for couple's and it is proven to create lasting change for healthier relationships. I am a CCTP (Clinical Certified Trauma Professional), meaning I've been trained to work with PTSD, Anxiety, Phobias, and side effects from them like control issues and difficulty turning the brain off. You are not alone and there is a path towards peace. If you are interested in understanding self and healing with intention, I am here for you.
