From the Doctor:
I am originally from South Carolina, but have lived in six other states. For the past five and half years, my family and I have enjoyed the warm weather and mild winters here in Jacksonville. I am the parent to a special-needs child and have experienced the joys and challenges of international adoption.
My primary philosophy is to establish a level of comfort and sense of safety with my patients. I take an interpersonal approach in order to learn about the person as a whole. Exploring a person’s sense of identity coupled with their experiences can yield lasting results that will serve them for years to come.
