Hi I'm Chima! I'm happy your here!

A safe place to heal.


Hi! I’m Chima Lubin, a licensed marriage and family therapist and a certified trauma professional in Florida who specializes in the treatment of anxiety, depression and trauma in teens. I’ve worked with children,  adolescents and families for over 9 yrs providing counseling  in-home, outpatient, inpatient settings and has worked as a Clinical Director in Manatee  Detention Center for 3 yrs. My services include individual and family therapy in lakewood ranch and the surrounding regions. My passion is helping adolescents teens and families learn how to  navigate through issues of trauma and difficult transitions.  I absolutely love helping  teens enhance self-worth,  deal with issues concerning depression, anxiety resulting and other emotional issues resulting from the trauma  and help them learn how to find their voice, develop the emotional skills that transform their lives and relationships. Along with enhancing parent-child relationships.

I offer several evidenced based approaches  to trauma that promotes the health of  your mental and emotional well being. My approach to therapy is a partnership, we walk through the process at your own pace. The focus is to grow in your existing strengths and thrive on the capacity to live to the fullest. A little bit about me, I’m married with my husband of 14yrs with 2 beautiful children here in the beautiful Manatee County area. I love to sing, spend time with family watching movies, traveling and going to theme parks.
