Your mental health is a crucial part of your overall well-being. It affects how you think, feel, and act, and plays a major role in determining how you handle stress and relate to other people. Though it’s easy to neglect, taking care of mental health is one of the keys to leading a fulfilling life.

At Chrysallis Wellness Center in Fort Myers, we pride ourselves on our patient-centered approach to behavioral health services. We understand that each patient’s mental health journey is unique, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. That’s why our team of licensed behavioral health professionals boasts a broad range of specializations to ensure you get access to tailored treatment that meets your individual needs every step of the way.

Services Offered

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy consists of one-on-one counseling sessions with one of our certified therapists. You can speak confidentiality about whatever challenges you are experiencing — whether it’s an emotional stressor, a change you’re trying to implement in your life, or something entirely different.

Family Therapy

If the mental well-being of your family unit isn’t in order, it directly impacts each individual family member’s quality of life. Family therapy is a collaborative opportunity to address your whole family’s mental health needs with the help of a behavioral health professional in a group therapy setting.

Couples Therapy

Couples therapy is a way to confront challenges in your relationship and navigate solutions under the guidance of a licensed counselor. Our therapists are practiced in helping couples of all kinds (married or not) improve their relationships or stay one step ahead of potential problems.

Faith-based Counseling

Faith-based counseling incorporates faith and spirituality into the mental healthcare process. For patients who are interested, we can blend a modern, scientific approach to therapy with faith-based techniques to provide a holistic treatment experience.

Support Groups

We also offer support groups to help you access resources and connect with other people who are on journeys similar to yours. Available support groups include:

  • Parenting support groups
  • Emotional support groups
  • Autism support groups (for parents of children with autism)
  • Psycho educational support groups


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, or EMDR, is a psychotherapy technique that seeks to expedite emotional healing through a series of specific steps carried out under the direction and guidance of a mental health clinician. It’s often used to treat psychological stress related to PTSD or other forms of trauma.

Applied Behavioral Analysis

Applied behavioral analysis is an approach to therapy that focuses on understanding and improving specific behaviors that are interfering with your well-being in areas like social skills or communication.

Youth Mentoring

We can pair your child or teenager with a committed mentor who will serve as a positive influence on their mental and emotional development. Leading by example is a powerful technique for teaching youth to manage their emotions in responsible and healthy ways.

Substance Abuse Treatment

Our outpatient substance abuse treatment services are designed to help patients who are struggling with addiction transition safely back into the community.

Meditation and Yoga

We also offer training in meditation and yoga to equip patients with ample skills for managing anxiety and achieving mental clarity.

Our Approach

At Chrysallis Wellness Center, we’re adamant about our client-centered approach to behavioral healthcare. We strive to provide our patients with personalized treatment plans that cater to their unique needs as individuals. We’re also fully committed to integrating evidence-based therapies into our treatment plans like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and mindfulness-based practices.

Most importantly, we’re dedicated to maintaining a safe, diverse, and non-judgmental environment where every one of our clients can feel free to express themselves and trust that what they share will remain private.
