about

Welcome To Innovative Counseling, LLC

I’d like to invite you to contemplate on the following questions.

At times life can be very challenging… It may feel like you can’t catch a break, fighting multiple fronts, nothing is working, you feel emotionally defeated and exhausted. Sometimes, you just want to give up but deep inside a voice tells you YOU CAN’T, you simply can’t give up. That’s why you’re here. I want you to know two things: You are not alone and we are here to help. We’ve been helping clients on problems like this for over 12 years.

I know how difficult it can be taking that first step and reach out for help. However, don’t let doubt stop you. In our practice, we use an eclectic approach of evidence-based modalities and holistic perspectives as everything is interconnected. You will be treated by highly ethical, professional and experienced practitioners. We will discuss practical tools and immediately start tackling the problem so you can start seeing changes as quickly as possible.

Our Services - Miami FL

counseling

Individual Counseling

Our individual counseling sessions empower you by helping you understand what it means to live authentically and regain control over life that often feels elusive.


At Innovative Counseling LLC, we help to connect you profoundly to your authentic self, giving you insights that few have the privilege to discover. Moreover, we empower you to reclaim your life, meaningfully navigate significant transitions, and cultivate an enduring sense of joy.

couple

Couples Counseling

A more fulfilling relationship is within your reach. Having assisted hundreds of individuals over the past years, we are proficient at helping couples to gain prosperous relationships.


Relationships are a labor of love. They demand mutual respect, empathy, trust, and effective communication. In their absence, even the most robust relationships can falter. At Innovative Counseling LLC, we strive to help you and your partner align your aspirations, foster a deeper connection, and derive more satisfaction from your relationship.

family

Family Counseling

Life coaching empowers you to harness your talents, determination and bravery towards what you value most.


Your coach will equip you to embrace the optimal mental readiness to confront your goals. Your coach understands that mindset is critical for your triumph. Even the best strategy fails without the correct mentality to execute it. Coaching exposes unproductive thoughts and actions, shatters negative cycles, and assists you to reach and surpass your desired outcomes.

life

Life Coaching

Start a transformative journey towards a life of deeper meaning and purpose. We are here, standing by to navigate with you.


Our coaching is centered on cultivating personal growth and achieving your goals. We are committed to helping you identify your strengths and weaknesses, set attainable goals, and devise effective strategies to reach them. Our coaching extends into both your personal and professional life, focusing on career advancement, personal growth, executive prowess, relationships, and beyond.

trauma

EMDR Therapy

Facing the demands and challenges of life can be overwhelming, especially when you’ve recently experienced a traumatic event.


This is why Innovative Counseling LLC provides leading-edge psychotherapy modalities best suited for trauma survivors and the holistic healing of their minds and bodies. We offer high-quality mental health care with EMDR therapy and help our clients overcome PTSD by helping them release painful memories intertwined with trauma.

hypnosis

Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a powerful and safe tool that empowers you to regain control over adverse behaviors, or better manage anxiety and pain.


With our hypnotherapy services, you acquire the capacity to quash fears, strip away anxiety, negate harmful thinking, and shed bad habits. Hypnotherapy conditions you to enhance performance, elevate self-confidence, and dismantle dysfunctional patterns. Remember, every human behavior stems from the subconscious mind, and is guided by learned beliefs. While some beliefs prove beneficial, others can be harmful. But the silver lining is this - whatever we learn can be unlearned and relearned at a subconscious level.

Telehealth

Research have shown that telehealth is as effective as in-person counseling. You will not miss any body language given the fact that most body language is expressed through the face.

All of our sessions are through Telehealth which is a face-to-face, live video communication platform that is secure and HIPAA compliant. You will still get the same quality of service as in-person-counseling, but from the comfort of your home or wherever you are; therefore, ideal for busy people.

Now, you no longer need to waste time driving, rushing in traffic, finding parking, and spending money on gas. You don’t need to sit in a waiting room feeling awkward in front of people. All you need is an internet connection, find a place where you feel comfortable and enjoy a wonderful counseling session. Isn’t that awesome?

We invite you to contact us by submitting an inquiry or contacting us on the phone. We are here to help!

Best experience ever. For a good while I was trying to find the right therapist and I almost lost hope until I found my current therapist. Louise has been so welcoming and supportive of the things I say or do and has really driven me to continue to be better for myself and for others around me. I look forward to many more years of friendship.

I highly recommend Ms. Carlisle. Ms. Carlisle’s approach is incredibly effective. She’s very empathetic, honest, and extremely knowledgeable. Every single session equipped me with valuable tools that led to positive growth and change. I have seen a number of therapists throughout the years and Ms. Carlisle, by far, has been the best.

I’ve been seeing Muriell for months, and her counseling has been a godsend during a difficult time of intense anxiety and stress. She has helped me deal with a range of struggles including financial hardship, adjusting to life in a new city, and a string of debilitating panic attacks. I’ve lived with anxiety issues for several years and seen several mental-health specialists. The guidance and strategies I’ve received from Muriell have been very effective. She offers some of the best treatment I have ever received!

Muriell is an excellent therapist that I recommend to all people seeking tele-health therapeutic services. She provides holistic and individualized treatment for all of her clients and works with evidenced based modalities. I feel honored to have worked and consulted with Muriell for the last 12 years and have learned invaluable strategies/techniques to apply not only with my own clients but in personal life as well.
