Hi! I am Kristina Fecik a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and owner of Relationships Within Reach, LLC. I provide individual and couples therapy at The Psychology Group Fort Lauderdale.

Relationships Within Reach is a marriage and family therapy practice that was developed with the idea that each person’s desires within a relationship are possible to obtain.

Based on my experience in doing therapy with individuals, couples and families, I believe that obstacles can be overcome; goals can be achieved; and situations that appear hopeless, can improve.

In therapy, I provide a safe, supportive and nonjudgmental environment where problems can be discussed. I seek to understand my clients' concerns, in order to help them identify and make the adjustments necessary for them to achieve their individual, relationship and family goals.

Individual Therapy

Are you searching for happiness within yourself, your relationship, your job or career? Do you feel stagnant? Is there something missing in your life? Where do you want to be in your life and what is getting in the way of you reaching your goals?

By exploring your vision of where you want to be with yourself (more confident, less depressed, more social, less anxious, living a healthier lifestyle), and establishing a set of goals, the relationship you want with whatever you are having a problem with, can be within your reach.

By exploring feelings and obstacles, focusing on future hopes and dreams, and building upon your existing strengths, I can be supportive in helping you get there.

Examples of problems I address in therapy with individuals include the following but are not limited to: 

  • Depression, Anxiety and Anger Management Issues
  • Relationship Issues
  • Problems at work or With Family
  • Substance Abuse/ Dependence
  • Feeling Stuck With Where to go with Future Goals
  • Codependency

  • Drug rehabilitation with adults recovering from substance dependence.
  • In-home therapy with children, families and couples exposed to domestic violence, child abuse and/or neglect through the Department of Children and Families; the goal being to improve communication and living circumstances so to ensure the safety of the children and preserve the family unit.
  • The public school system assisting teens, children and families with school issues such test anxiety, feeling overwhelmed by school pressures, adjusting to divorce or separation in the family, grief or loss, behavioral issues, self esteem and bullying.

Prior to my work as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I studied and conducted research in the area of Organizational and Industrial Psychology and have maintained this area of interest. Blending my knowledge of the two fields, I seek to assist clients with relational issues such as in a family business or with individuals in their workplace.
