A CORRECTION AND AN APOLOGY:  In the January, 2021 issue of USA Today Magazine, I mistakenly identified the American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA) as the professional group who moved a conference due to a Tennessee law.  The group in question was the American Counselors Association (ACA).  I apologize for any misimpression this may have caused.  A correction has been sent to the publisher of USA Today Magazine.  - Dr. Lori Puterbaugh

Recent Changes

In January, 1999 I founded my private practice at 801 West Bay Drive in Largo.  In 2018, after nearly 20 years, I closed that location and moved my practice into two parish offices:  St. Matthew Catholic Church in Seminole, and Espiritu Santo Catholic Church in Safety Harbor.  The new locations are convenient for more clients, and clients of all - and no - religious affiliations are finding the locations peaceful, discreet and comfortable.   The change has enabled me to reduce my fees and serve a wider range of clients.  It has been a long-time desire to move my practice in this direction and I am grateful for the opportunity given to me by both parish communities.
