Florence Mungo, LPC
Florence Mungo is an African-American Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor in Pennsylvania, with extensive experience providing trauma therapy to young people and adults in community mental health settings. She is also a French speaking therapist.
If you identify as Black, Person of Color, or Immigrant and answer “yes” to any of the following questions, Florence is a good fit for your individual therapy:
Do you have sleep problems or struggle to relax? Are you feeling overwhelmed by stress? Are you struggling adjusting to a new phase of life? Do you want to heal from trauma? Do you have negative beliefs about yourself such as, “I’m not good enough”?
Florence provides compassionate trauma therapy because she understands how race, ethnicity, gender, religion, immigration status, and culture can influence the way you cope with lived experiences. Her trauma informed therapy techniques are multicultural, collaborative, and centered in the theory of attachment. She uses the therapeutic relationship and her nurturing personality, to help clients with trauma healing.
Many people often think trauma is only caused by violent crimes, acts of physical abuse, or natural disasters. They may also think because trauma happened a long time ago, it does not affect them in the present. These are a few of the myths about trauma. There are many types of traumas such as the sudden or unexpected death of a loved one, bullying, retaliation in the workplace, neglect from parents, infidelity, intimate partner violence, the witnessing of domestic violence and more. Florence provides EMDR therapy for many types of trauma that occur in childhood and adulthood.
Florence is accepting new clients for online therapy in Philadelphia, on weekdays.
