About Me

My wife and I were born and raised in Jacksonville and attended the Duval County Schools. Our greatest joy is spending time with our two sons and our grand children. Our oldest son is an accomplished and award-winning actor, producer and screenwriter while our youngest son is an orthopedic surgeon with the Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute and the Head Team Physician for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Over my many years of clinical practice with children and teens, I have focused on improving parenting skills and family management, developing self-confidence and self-esteem in children and teens, and establishing a more warm, loving, and positive relationship between parents and their children. Parents should not be blamed for any parenting errors; they need better skills to strengthen their family relationships. It is through a very practical approach that I am able to build better family relationships and enhance the lives and future of children and teens in our community
