Doug Webster, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Meet Doug, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and the owner of Palm Harbor Counseling Team, with over 40 years of experience in the field of mental health. Doug's vast experience includes working in Community Mental Health Centers, managing Crisis Intervention Services, Psychiatric hospitals and Outpatient Clinics in Director-level clinical and administrative positions.

Doug has extensive knowledge and experience in the treatment of Schizophrenia and Bipolar disorders, but he now specializes in rapid treatment for individuals with Anxiety and Depression. He has been trained by one of the four founders of CBT-Cognitive/ Behavioral Therapy, and his clients quickly learn what Anxiety really is. Instead of focusing on the symptoms, Doug teaches his clients how to move beyond symptom management to identify and alleviate the sources that cause the symptoms. With powerful tools and techniques, clients learn to change the way they think, which, in turn, changes the way they feel.

Doug is passionate about educating and training students, school systems, and various professional organizations about mental health, particularly suicide assessment and prevention. In the past, he has served as the President of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness in Pasco County), demonstrating his commitment to community service.

Doug's sessions generally run for 90 minutes, and research shows that this approach can expedite treatment up to four times faster. Doug continually updates his training in CBT, specifically TEAM therapy, which is his primary approach to treatment. He is person-centered, trauma-sensitive in his approach, and believes in developing a strong empathic relationship with his clients. Understanding the impact of the client's experiences is a cornerstone of Doug's approach, whether working with individuals or couples.

Doug's joy comes from seeing people learn and use the tools he teaches, resulting in them feeling better in a matter of days and weeks, not months.

Keri Jakubowski, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor
As a trained clinical therapist with years of practice and supervision, my approach has a Person Centered focus based on an individual‘s unique characteristics, goals and principles. I can help people effectively manage difficulties in life and most mental health issues. I firmly believe that everyone is able to change if they want to change. We all go through times during life when we feel stuck or not sure of what we want and that’s okay. With the proper guidance and support therapy can help you make many changes, face any challenges you have and empower you to make what you want for yourself and your life.

I have extensive knowledge and skills in working with individuals, ages 5 and up, and families dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem, relationship problems and addiction. My goal is to provide an environment that is non-judgmental and interactive. I want you to achieve the changes and growth you deserve and desire.
