Meet our In-Office and Virtual Therapists

John McEwen, MA, LMHC

About me

I am a native of Tampa, born in Tampa General more than a few years ago. I have lived in several other places in these United states, southern Illinois, Seattle WA, Denver Colorado to name a few, but I always seem to gravitate back to Tampa, the home of my extended family for several generations. I am a musician, and I enjoy playing music with friends, practicing classical piano and writing and recording original songs in my spare time.

About me

 Building rapport and getting to know one another is a great first step in building a therapeutic relationship.  First, here is a little about myself.  I was born and raised in upstate New York and moved to Florida in 2013 with my husband and our two sons.  Like many who move to Florida, I came for the beautiful weather!  I love the beach, traveling, working out, sports and spending time with my family.


Camille Faunda, MSW, LCSW

Camille Faunda, Therapist, Grief Counselor

About me

Let’s get to know each other… how about I start? My name is Camille and I am a native Minnesotan living in Tampa with my husband and our two dogs. Our family migrated south for the warm weather and hopes to grow closer as a family. “Grow where you’re planted” has been my mantra living in Tampa and exploring all of the special neighborhoods we get to call our home. There is nothing better to me than exploring with family all of the new places to eat, drink coffee, enjoy runs, or practice yoga. I hope for the opportunity to get to know you as well.

Joel Schmidt, MA, LMHC

About me

My name is Joel and I’m a husband, a dog dad, and  Navy Veteran.  I’m from Nebraska originally, but have been in Florida for about 12 years and Tampa for about 3 years.  A lot of what drew us to Tampa was everything that it has to offer: good food/drink, entertainment, sporting events, and easy access to the beaches.  I love travel, college football, coffee, learning new things, listening to podcasts, Florida Winters, and spending time with family, friends, and our Greyhound named Dean.
