BelindaBelinda Thrift, MA, RMHCI
Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern IMF 10428

Belinda grew up believing a lie: “Those who seek counseling are weak or crazy.”  During her 40’s, after her life became unbearable, she finally turned to a trained professional counselor who helped her explore ways in which her past continued to affect her present, and learn healthy ways of coping and relating. The difference this made in her well-being, coupled with her compassion for those who are hurting, compelled her to become a counselor and offer that hope of healing to others (2 Corinthians 1: 3-4). Belinda’s passion is journeying with hurting people and offering a safe environment in which they can grow and heal while discovering the truth about themselves: “You are strong, precious and loved.”

Belinda earned her Master of Arts in Counseling from Reformed Theological Seminary of Oviedo and her Associate of Arts Degree in Social Services from Belhaven University of Orlando. Presently, she is a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern pursuing licensure with the State of Florida. She has facilitated grief groups and sexual abuse recovery groups to help participants cope with and recover from significant trauma and loss. At various locations throughout the Central Florida area, she offers therapeutic care for individuals, couples, families and groups seeking assistance in their struggles. Belinda is particularly passionate about her work with folks recovering from abuse, trauma and codependency. 407.302.0880 Ext. 5  or 407.927.6646
