Larry Sargent, Ph.D.

Living Well Therapy and Coaching is proud to have Larry Sargent, Ph.D. as a central member of our team.  Larry pursued a career in Psychology in his second-act of life after a successful career as an entrepreneur and business executive.  As a Grand-Master of several martial-arts he provided training for law enforcement and the military and was inducted into the Florida Black-Belt Hall of Fame.  Larry was also a competitive winning powerlifter for 4 decades.

Larry always had a keen interest in psychology and a love for helping others, so he set his sights on the helping professions. His doctoral studies were in Counseling Psychology. Larry also earned a certificate in EMDR therapy and developed an expertise in the modalities of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family-Focused Therapy, and Solution Focused therapy.  Since finishing his doctoral studies Larry has spent years working in professional settings from the Wounded Warrior Project to private practice.

In Larry’s own words:

“As members of the human community we are often confronted with challenges in life that bring sadness and anxiety. Finding joy in working with those individuals and families who are seeking a supportive partner to meet those challenges is paramount to a successful therapeutic relationship. Empathy and an understanding of how depression and anxiety impact people are essential to developing strong coping strategies and skills.”
