Our Team at the Relationship Center of South Florida is a unique and diverse group of mental health professionals. We are 15 psychiatrists, psychologists, and licensed counselors and therapists. Our backgrounds and clinical experience are quite diverse, while we are united in a common purpose: to provide the highest level of professional service using the most effective methods with compassion, concern and unconditional care.

I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge our team. We met together recently to welcome several new team members to our Center. At the meeting I was struck by the remarkable level of warmth, camaraderie, and good cheer in our group. Yet this is nothing new – it’s been a pleasure to work with so many wonderful people over so many years.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I’m truly grateful for your friendship, support and teamwork at our Center. And I’m enriched by your collective experience and wisdom. You have created an atmosphere of warmhearted collegiality and partnership that I greatly value. And your contributions have been significant.

For example, we have a web site that’s rich with valuable information, with contributions from many of you. Informative articles have been written by Nicole Pearl, Karin Witte, and John Imperatore. And one of our newest team members, Annette BoVee-Akyurek recently created 3 new web site pages about important services not previously available at our Center. Thank you for your exceptional contributions.

Our Connections program of marriage retreats and couples therapy intensives has become one of the most successful services at our Center. And Karin Witte has been instrumental in helping to develop this program. It’s been a pleasure to work directly with you, Karin as co-therapists in Connections, and to see your growth and development as a highly effective clinician. Karin also started a new peer consultation group that’s off to a great start.

I also want to mention our 2 psychiatrists, Dr. Nicole Pearl and Dr. Shawn Gersman. Thank you for the many contributions you make to our Center. Your availability and willingness to provide consultation, evaluation and other services to our patients is invaluable. And your participation in our monthly consultation group has been enriching and influential for many clinicians.

It’s been an honor and a pleasure to work with all of you. Thank you for your friendship and support.
