About Us
        Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.

        Hi, I'm Dominique Battle, Owner and CEO of Guided Steps Counseling and Consulting, LLC. You can learn more about me and my passion for helping people just like you further down this page. As a cognitive behavioral and emotion-focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

        Guided Steps Counseling and Consulting, LLC is a private-pay therapy and consulting practice. What does that mean? This means that each client, couple, or family will pay out-of-pocket/privately for services offered. It's important to know that Insurance companies mandate that in order to cover mental health services appropriately under insurance plans, a mental health diagnosis MUST be given and documented on your permanent health record. Insurance companies will then have access to a significant amount of your sensitive and private information about you by requesting to review all of your records whenever they choose to.  Because of the tremendous stigma and mis-education surrounding mental health and mental health diagnoses, having a diagnosis on your permanent health record could lead to potential denial for such things as life insurance and health insurance premiums could possible increase. Additionally, insurance companies often attempt to limit the type of therapy that can be done, the number of sessions they will cover, and what form of therapy they will cover, which can significantly hinder therapy progress and successful outcomes. It is my desire to be an advocate for each of my clients and ensuring effective treatment by offering a high degree of privacy and more control over their health records, as much as allowed by Florida law. As such, Dominique is listed on Therapy for Black Girls, a clinician directory tailored to women of color seeking therapy and Open Path Psychotherapy Collective, a directory that offers low cost, sliding fee payment options to individuals in need.
