Due to health reasons, I will be closing my counseling practice and retiring as of June 9, 2023.  It has been a privilege to have worked as a mental health counselor in Polk County since 1983.  I will miss the work and the people I have come to know for the last 40 years.  

If current or former patients are interested in finding a new therapist, I am happy to help.  If you have health insurance and would like to locate a provider in your network please obtain a list from your insurance company to have on hand before you contact me.  You may also visit with your psychiatrist or primary care physician for a recommendation as well.

Current patients:  I can still be reached through the patient portal Therapyappointment.com using your login ID and password or by calling me at (863) 875-4861. 

Former patients: Please contact me at (863) 875-4861.

Department of Health - Florida statutes require that, following retirement or the closing of an office, records are to be maintained for 2 years.  After that, they will be destroyed.  If you need a copy of your records after I retire, you may send a request including a signed Release of Information to:
