From the Doctor

I was raised in Central Florida and moved to Jacksonville in 2009 to attend college. I love to spend my free time paddle boarding, kayaking, hiking, and exploring local and national parks. I also play various sports and practice yoga.

My philosophy of care is to provide a safe therapeutic environment to help empower patients to engage in self-exploration, growth, and enact positive change. I believe that each patient is unique and deserves a plan of care tailored to their specific needs.

I’m a strong advocate for giving back to the community. I enjoy being involved with mental health groups, to advocate for positive change. I also enjoy volunteering with community organizations for local park and beach clean-ups.
