Joel I. Kimmel, PH.D., P.A. & Associates

Providing Psychological Services for Over 44 Years

Effective and Efficient Solutions

Joel I. Kimmel, Ph.D., P.A. and Associates is a group of mental health professionals who are focused on assisting you or your family in facing life’s challenges.

We have been in practice in South Florida since 1977 and have helped thousands of patients. We have an excellent reputation and pride ourselves on the fact that most of our referrals come from previous patients and professionals in the community.

We practice Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and believe that by changing one’s beliefs, perceptions, and attitudes, a person can change their emotions and behaviors.

We provide effective and efficient solutions for psychological disorders, overwhelming problems, and navigating life’s challenges.

Our therapy process is simple:

  • First, the issues and/or behavioral health conditions are identified and goals for treatment are established
  • Strategies are then developed with you or the client to resolve these issues
  • Finally, these strategies are executed and monitored until the issues have been successfully resolved


Caring for your mental health is what we do and we do it well.

We invite you to look through our website to find out more about our practice, mental health issues of interest, and how we may be able to help you.
