Founder and Director

Alessana Fordin, LMHC is a licensed psychotherapist specializing in treating individuals, couples and groups. She maintains a group practice, LOTUS COUNSELING CENTER in Miami (Brickell), as well as, Aventura and Boca Raton, Florida.

Alessana works either in a more traditional 'psychodynamic' and/or 'self-psychology' orientation (helping clients to link the unconscious to the conscious and identify those behaviors that are not working for them) or in a more 'solution-focused' perspective -- getting results and moving sessions along quickly. No matter which orientation 'I give feedback and am warm, clear and supportive.' Alessana received her Bachelor's degree from Cornell University (1976) and completed a Masters of Science degree at Barry University (2001) with a Dual Specialization in Mental Health Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy. In addition, she completed a year long Certification in Addiction Studies at the University of Miami and is a certified addiction professional candidate. Other postgraduate training includes a two year post graduate Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Program at Florida Psychoanalytic Institute. Alessana maintains a strong interest in fitness, wellness and nutrition related activities as well as being a certified yoga instructor and dedicated yoga practitioner.
