Welcome to Our Clinic
We appreciate the opportunity to work with you here at Turning Point. By seeking counseling, you are a step closer to empowering yourself on a path of growth and well-being.
Our Mission ... Is to provide a full range of psychological services to individuals, families, and businesses along the Emerald Coast in the northwest panhandle of Florida, and to do so in a compassionate, respectful, and confidential manner that honors our clients' strengths and dignity. We welcome your business and appreciate your feedback.
Our Providers ... Dr. Miller, Dr. Chandler, and Dr. Tucker, all Licensed Psychologists, each with over 30 years of clinical experience, all work with adults and adolescents, while Dr. Miller and Dr. Tucker additionally see children of all ages. Drs. Miller and Chandler, co-recipients of the Okaloosa/Walton Mental Health Association Outstanding Mental Health Professional Award for 2015, established Turning Point in 2002. Dr. Tucker, a highly trained and diversified clinician, who is licensed in both Colorado and Florida, joined our practice in 2016, bringing with him a personal warmth and a playful sense of humor. Unique to Dr. Tucker is his training in the assessment and treatment of children with developmental delays and those who fall on the autism spectrum, as well as his training in positive psychology and ego-state psychology. Dr. Chandler's approach to therapy, which includes extensive work in the field of trauma recovery, is well described in his recently published self-help book, Psychomechanics: Tools for Self-Regulation of Emotions. Dr. Miller plays two roles in our practice. Assisted by our outstanding staff, she is the manager of day-to-day office life at Turning Point, and as a psychotherapist, she uses a combined cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic approach in treatment. For further information regarding each clinician, please see Our Providers Page.
