For my fellow control freaks - I hired a designer during our remodel. There are a billion decisions to make and as someone who overthinks everything I found hiring a designer by the hour fantastic. We basically worked out a plan where she offers me 3 choices that will work ( budget and aesthetics wise) and I pick. She knows me pretty well at this point so it is getting pretty hard ( I tend to like all the options) but it gives me the illusion of control, let's me feel like I have made the decisions and frees up my time to do all the other stuff I have to do and behind it all I know she has the bigger picture in mind which can be the hardest thing when you are trying to pick one item). With unlimited time I would do more of this myself and enjoy it as a hobby but that is not my current stage of life.. I am really excited to see this all done. I am confident it will be great.

Jeff the Chef, there are many designers that charge a fixed fee. You may also want to consider a designer that does E decorating. They provide you with a space plan and rooms specs customized to your design style. Or consider going to a design school and asking for recents grads. A young talented hipster might be a fit for you and your budget. Tampa has a good design school and isn't too far from you.
I am quite comfortable turning down a design style I don't execute. It's not very much fun doing design work you don't love. I have an extensive interview process and an agreement that is signed before any design work commences and money exchanges hand. It is imperative that the service I provide meets the needs of the client and that they in turn meet my ideal client profile. Personalities need to be a fit. I'm honest with myself and potential clients. There is designer/service out there for most clients and a client for most designers.
Most importantly, whether you are designer or client you should have a signed agreement outlining the scope of the project and the compensation.
