From the Doctor:
I grew up in New York State but moved to California as an undergrad where I earned my BA and MS in Psychology, with a minor in child development. I then moved to Florida to pursue my PhD in child clinical psychology at FSU. During my graduate training, I worked closely with Dr. William Pelham on the development of the summer treatment program that was the behavioral component of an NIMH-funded multi-site study for ADHD. ADHD continues to be one of my areas of expertise. For more than 20 years, I have been the Director of Psychology and Clinical Services at Hope Haven Children’s Clinic, where I worked with many families and children in and around Jacksonville. I was also the Program Director of Children First in Divorce, the state-mandated parent education program.
I live with my cats in Atlantic Beach. When not working, you can find me at concerts or riding my bike down A1A. I also love to camp, hike or ski.
I served on the Case Review Advisory Committee for many years. I have also served on the CHADD Professional Advisory Committee in both Duval and St. John’s counties.
