Hello and welcome, I’m Dr. Janine Furdella, a licensed clinical psychologist in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I appreciate your taking the first step to exploring the support you may need and desire to begin living the life you want. So often, the difficulty we experience in managing our thoughts and emotions interferes with being our best self.

I believe in the value of developing a therapeutic relationship in a non-judgmental space. This unconditional regard allows for the identification of emotions, strategies, and goals based on evidence-based practices allow for you to feel free to live authentically and live a life consistent with your values and beliefs.


I completed my Doctoral and Master’s degrees in clinical psychology at Nova Southeastern University and my undergraduate degree in psychology at Florida Atlantic University.
I’ve had the opportunity to work in many environments during my training and professional life including a residential treatment program, schools in Miami-Dade and Broward county, and specialized programs within the mental health center for children, and those with trauma at Nova Southeastern University.
Within those settings, I’ve provided individual, family, and group therapy, as well as psycho-education and support to family members. My clinical training and interests include eating disorders, posttraumatic stress, depression, and anxiety. I’ve worked with adolescents, college-age students, families as a system, and those across the life span.
I believe in the value of providing support, enhancing motivation, and instilling hope while navigating natural developmental changes and life transitions. Sometimes, these experiences -- such as starting a new school or career, parenting our ever-changing children, or managing feelings of loss and grief -- leave us feeling alone and vulnerable. I’m excited to bring my experience to private practice serving teens, adults, and families.
As a psychologist, I always strive to create an environment where you feel free to share your authentic self while using evidence-based practices to target the specific symptoms that are interfering with your ability to be present in your life.

I’m a warm, empathic clinician, that adapts therapy individually to each client. In doing so, I utilize the treatments current research describes as beneficial including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and the Unified Protocol for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders (UP).

The UP targets underlying emotions, the function of emotions, and how emotional and behavioral avoidance may interfere with living a life consistent with our values and achieving our goals.

Originally from the Northeast, I moved to South Florida and raised my family here. My family has a collection of college mascots including Sharks, Gators, Owls, Ospreys, and Army Knights.
I’m excited and look forward to collaborating with you to identify what you may need to live the life you desire while remaining present and grateful for who you are.
