WELCOME to my Private Practice page.
Having relocated to the Beaches area, I have just re-established my private practice of clinical psychology in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. This page lists some of the kinds of issues I look forward to helping my clients with, but note that this list is not exhaustive. Due to limited resources in our office, there are certain services and clients which will not be available in our current setting, also mentioned below.
I look forward to meeting you and working with you to help you achieve a more satisfying level of functioning for any current "problems in living." My clinical orientation is cognitive behavior therapy. This approach involves making positive changes in thinking and behavior as the best way to modify negative emotions without medications.
If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call (904) 447-1467. By working remotely, I can offer appointments any day of the week.

Due to Covid-19 and popular demand, I have decided to offer all sessions remotely through Zoom, Google Duo or FaceTime. This change allows me to expand my hours to any day and any time. It also provides you more privacy- we can conduct our sessions from the privacy of your own home. In addition, since I do not have overhead costs, I am passing those savings down to my patients and reducing my rates. Please call me at (904) 447-1467 to set up your session.
