About Dr. Jalazo

RoycePicLrgI am a licensed clinical psychologist who who can assist you with the everyday common struggles in your life to the more serious issues troubling you.   

I completed a Doctor of Psychology Degree (Psy.D.) in 2002 from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and then continued my training around the country. 

I have helped hundreds of people like you who are looking for solutions for troubling aspects of their lives.  

Prior to going into private practice, I worked in a variety of mental health settings in several states all over this country, to include:  a long-term in-patient treatment facility for developmentally disabled adults suffering from schizophrenia (Wyoming), the inner-city schools (Elementary, Middle, and High Schools) of the Baltimore City Public School System (Maryland), two state psychiatric hospitals (Kentucky and North Carolina) as well as a stint as the Director of Mental Health for a men’s medium security prison in Florida.

These experiences have allowed me to assist a broad array of people in coping with a wide variety of issues.  I provide psychotherapy services to adults and comprehensive psychological and psychoeducational assessments to both adults and children in the general population.

Additionally, I am currently one of only two psychologists in the entire county selected and cleared to work with the Broward County Sheriff’s Office Employee Assistance Program, where I provide psychological assistance for critical incident stress debriefing, psychoeducational information, and psychotherapy services.

BSO EAP provides me with observational learning experiences designed to increase my actual knowledge of and empathic understanding of the employees of their organization.  As such, on a regular basis, I ride along with fire-rescue workers or deputies.

I am also an Adjunct Professor for Nova Southeastern University’s Farquar College of Arts and Sciences, where I teach a number of courses in psychology.
