    Panelists Bios:

    Brenda S. Faiber, M.S., LMFT has been a practicing Marriage & Family Therapist for 37 years and have worked as a consultant and therapist in many different venues including JFS, Intensive Outpatient Substance Abuse Centers, FEMA and recently as a Behavioral Health Specialist for a comprehensive and all-inclusive LGBTQA center and my private practice in Altamonte Springs. Brenda cannot think of anything else that she would be happier doing or as rewarding. Brenda has helped so many broken individuals; be it abuse survivors, trauma victims, ones suffering from anxiety and depression, substance abuse addicts, wounded inner children, dysfunctional couples and families and those threatened by a catastrophic illness. She has held their hands every step of the way on their journeys to healing, assuring them, supporting them, empowering them and encouraging them to see the possibilities that are out there. Brenda is a cancer survivor, 26 years out, given 6-9 weeks to live in March, 1996. The rewards have definitely been overwhelming at times. Before her eyes, Brenda has witnessed individuals who were totally dysfunctional heal and reclaim their lives and become successful both personally and professionally.  Brenda’s greatest joy is when a client shares that she made a significant difference in their lives and they will be forever appreciative and grateful.  Helping people live safely in the world being all that they can “be” is what being a therapist is all about. Brenda’s mission has always been to provide a safe, nurturing environment for individuals to heal their wounds, reclaim their lost selves and learn how to become proactive in their lives. Brenda believes that: “We all have the gift of life and it is up to us how we live it.  Don’t ever give up and take “no” for an answer.

    Sam Friedman, MBAA Jewish communal professional of 12 years, Sam Friedman received his early career training at the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County, before moving to Orlando in 2014 to help restart Hillels at UCF and Stetson University. Sam has written articles that have been featured in the Times of Israel, the Jewish Daily Forward and the Florida Heritage Jewish Newspaper. Recently, Sam began the next stage of his career as the Chief Development Officer of the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando and the Jewish Community Center. Sam lives in Longwood with the love of his life, Jennifer, and their dog Charlie Bear. You can often find Sam scoping out new restaurants, breweries and good conversations.

    Molly Friedman Losey's, M.A., LMHC, CCformal training includes attendance at New York University (NYU), University of Vienna, Austria through the Institute for European Studies (IES), and the University of Miami Honors Program, where she received her B.A. In 1973. Molly received her Masters Degree in Counseling with Honors from Rollins College Graduate Program in Counseling in 2008. Molly's practicum Study was conducted at Rollins College Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) and Internship at the Center for Drug Free Living Outpatient Services in Orlando. Molly is trained in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and became a Certified Life Coach in 2011. Molly is the Past President of the Mental Health Counselors of Central Florida, an active member of the American Counseling Association and currently on the Board of Central Florida Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. Additionally, Molly serves as the Chair of the Board of Advisors of Rollins College Hamilton Holt School. Molly finds her life experience to be one of her best tools in counseling. She feels we are all fellow “pilgrims” and she is not an expert on others' lives.  Molly collaboratively guides her clients and shines a light on their dark recesses. Molly has been married since 1973, has two grown children and grandchildren. Molly spent many years as a stay-at-home mom and active community volunteer. When she entered her own “existential vacuum,” Molly decided to return to school and continue a career that had been whispering in her ear for many years. Molly believes strongly in lifelong learning and that it is never too late to change our steps. That is one of the reasons she feels so strongly about the value of counseling. Molly truly loves the work she does and considers it an honor and privilege to help others explore their lives and make the necessary changes needed to feel whole. Molly works with adolescents, adults, couples, and families; and she offers individual counseling and couples counseling. Molly believes the mind/body/spirit connection is essential to feel whole. She also pays close attention to gender and sexual orientation, cultural, and spiritual viewpoints of her clients as understands that this greatly impacts who they are.
