Jamie H. Barron, Psy.D., C.S.R. is a clinical psychologist, serving Dade City, Wesley Chapel, Pasco County and North Tampa areas, with more than 30 years of experience in treating patients in varied facilities including a mental health center, a prison, a private company and in her own clinical practice in Zephyrhills, Florida. Although her primary modality is cognitive/affective/behavioral therapy, she does not limit herself and uses techniques that will best fit the needs of the patient. She treats a range of patients from children, families, couples, individuals to the geriatric population.
She received her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Nova University (Nova Southeastern University) in 1989, and completed a subspecialty in neuropsychology which was a logical extension from her undergraduate biology and chemistry minors. She enjoys working closely with psychiatrists, primary care physicians, other medical physicians and practitioners to treat the needs of their patients as well as acquiring a medical referral base for her own.
Dr. Barron has worked within the legal (forensic) arena to perform court ordered evaluations of criminal defendants including capital murder cases. She currently performs Guardianship evaluations for Sixth Judicial Circuit when requested by the Probate office. She also performs psychological evaluations for criminal dependents in the Thirteenth Judicial Curcuit.
In May of 2011, Dr. Barron received her Certification in Sexuality and Religion (C.S.R.) degree, which required twenty-one graduate hours of coursework, from the Pacific School of Religion, in Berkeley California.
In addition to psychotherapy, Dr. Barron has lectured on a variety of topics and given seminars ranging from improving self-esteem, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) including the symptoms and the treatment for the individual and the family, sexual orientation issues, addressing GLBTQ prejudice, and the effects of Dementia/Alzheimer’s Disorder on the care giver. The final project at Pacific School of Religion was re-edited for psychologists.
In general Dr. Barron considers herself as an educator and seeker of knowledge; she enjoys academic pursuits but also loves interacting with her Godchildren, Pittsburgh Steelers football games and a variety of music.
