"A Different Kind of Clinician"

Hello! I want to thank you for considering Prather Behavioral Health and Counseling for your mental/behavioral health needs, located in Cape Coral, FL. I pride myself on providing a counseling experience that is tailored to your needs and personality. You are likely searching for help with a problem involving yourself, your child, and/or your family, and I would love to be helpful to you. I will make your mental and behavioral health needs my priority and serve you to the best of my ability. I have years of experience working as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in the state of Vermont and relocated to beautiful SW Florida in 2020, where I was a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). I graduated from the University of Vermont with my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and am a Board Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) from the National Board for Certified Counselors. I am also a Certified Forensic Mental Health Evaluator (CFMHE) through the National Board of Forensic Evaluators. My experience includes working with behavioral and externalizing youth and young adults, anger control, oppositionality/defiance/conduct issues, violence, sexualized behavior issues, parenting, as well as many other mental health needs such as anxiety and depression. I also am involved in the Lee County, FL court system and conduct court-ordered individual and family therapy/treatment, as well as other types of services and therapy. I serve on multiple boards including as the Vice President of the Family Resource Center (FRC) in Fort Myers, FL, and a board member of the Association of Family Law Professionals (AFLP). Both organizations are working to create positive change in the court system for children and families going through difficult divorces/custody issues that require court involvement. Please give me a call at (904) 878-0006 or email me at jprather@pratherbhc.com and let me know how I can help you or your family. I frequently have availability in my schedule so your wait to begin counseling will likely be short. Reach out for your FREE consultation today.
