About Dr. Gould

I have been practicing psychiatry for more than 20 years. I am passionate about the work that I do and understand that mental health symptoms often occur in the context of complicated biological, developmental, psychological, and/or social issues.  I will take the time to explore and understand these issues and how they affect you and your family.  I believe to be effective, the care I provide must be integrated with other therapies and interventions.  I understand the value of collaboration and will work with you to help you achieve your goals.

Prior to moving to Florida, I was the Medical Director of Hillside, Inc in Atlanta, GA.  While at Hillside, I was fortunate to complete extensive training in DBT and helped develop and implement a comprehensive DBT program.   DBT is an evidenced-based treatment that combines cognitive behavior therapy techniques with mindfulness principles.  DBT can help with many mental health issues including depression, anxiety, eating disorders, borderline personality disorder symptoms, trauma-related symptoms, interpersonal issues, problems with impulse control, problems with emotional regulation, self-injurious behaviors, and suicidal behaviors.  I have seen firsthand how life-changing DBT can be.  I also understand how important it is for psychiatric care to support DBT treatment.

My clinical approach routinely incorporates DBT principles with more traditional psychiatric interventions.  As a result, I believe I have been better able to help the people I work with - whether they are enrolled in DBT or not.  I am hopeful that I can be of help to you.
