From the Doctor:
I lived and practiced clinical psychology in the Jacksonville area from 1986 until 1996. I have been living and working in the Fernandina Beach area since 1996. Raising children in this environment has been most enjoyable and afforded me the opportunity to develop numerous valuable friendships.
When I meet new clients I give them information about my qualifications and therapeutic approach. I use a range of techniques based upon my experience, education and current research data. I incorporate an awareness of the individual's personal values, goals, life experience and current situation.
It is my pleasure to provide volunteer service hours to the music programs at Fernandina Beach High School. I support the Marching and Symphonic bands by being a chaperone to most events as well as transporting and setting up the musical equipment for the band members.
