  • Welcome Message

    Hola! Thank you for stopping by! My name is Esther Victoria Gomez and I am Cuban American, born in Gainseville, FL and raised in a little town outside of Miami called Hialeah. I am the owner and sole therapist of a private practice called Striving Minds Network (Mentes Esforzadas) in Miami, Florida. As a trauma-informed counselor, I have the privilege of helping young adults and adults who are presenting clinical concerns such as anxiety, abuse (sexual, physical, emotional, verbal, spiritual), and addictive behaviors.

    Were you sexually abused as a child with no one to turn to in order to talk about it and as an adult you have been triggered by painful memories? Are you in a physically, verbally, or emotionally abusive relationship and need guidance? Were you sexually exploited and are seeking freedom to regain control of your life? You try time and time again to break unhealthy habits or addictive behaviors and repeat the same patterns. Are you constantly in fear, panic, or worry its too overwhelming to bare? Do you believe anxiety has distorted your decision-making? If you have answered "yes" or "maybe" to any of these questions, then you have made it to the right place.

    Do you oftentimes find yourself stuck, trapped, or hidden? Pain is often skin deep, unseen, both in a spiritual and mental context. It’s difficult to overcome what you’ve experienced. Look no further, you've made it to the right place. At Striving Minds Network, you will discover the support to be heard and comfort to be eased from your burdens. I listen without judgment and demonstrate compassionate care. Give me a call today for your free 15 minute phone consultation. I look forward to working with you!

    **While conducting services, I am a working under the qualified supervision of Dr. Alison K. Davis, Ed.D., LMHC, NCC, BCPC.
