Björn Sveinsson is an RMHC-I born and raised within the community of South Florida. In his time in community mental health, Björn has worked in dynamic settings such as addiction rehabilitation services for women in inpatient settings, Title 1/ETO academic English classrooms for middle school children/faculty, and as a guardian ad litem for displaced youth to develop social-emotional development.
Since being with Lotus, Björn utilizes the frameworks of EFT, ACT, Gestaltian, Jungian, and TF-CBT to engage individuals, families, and couples ranging from childhood to geriatric lifespan. Björn specializes in working with gender/sexuality, domestic violence, trauma, medication management, personality, comorbidity, esteem building, anxiety, cultural syndromes, depression, OCD, identity formation, psychological Alchemy, and shadow/ego work. Building the sanctuary of therapy is vital for Björn, as having a sacred space of being one's unconditional self is vital to living authentically and passionately in all domains of life.
In the spare time from providing care, you can catch Björn expressing creativity in poetry and writing, meditating, being outside with nature, and adoring his cats, family, and loved ones.
"I do my thing and you do your thing. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you, and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, it's beautiful. If not, it can't be helped."
- Fritz Perls
