With over 25 years experience in health and mental health care, I specialize in treating stress, trauma, pain, anxiety, and adjustment to illness. However, I see the full gamit of patients, including children, adolescents, couples, families, and the elederly. My approach to practice is psychophysiological, psychosocial, and cognitive behavioral.
I have been married for 29 years, have one daughter, and three granddaughters. After serving in the ws_. Coast Guard, I went back to school and became a biofeedback therapist. Later, I obtained a Masters in Social Work and then a ws_. in Social Work from Florida State University. My dissertation involved examining the effects of death anxiety on the burnout of hospice social workers. I worked as a medical social worker for several years, including at Mayo Clinic Jacksonville, and Shands of Jacksonville. I carried out program evaluation research as a Research Associate at the Institute for Health & Human Services Research. For several years I provided biofeedback and psychotherapy with the Headache & Neurological Treatment Institute, mostly with injured workers and auto accident survivors.
