Dr. Strickland grew up with his family in Northern Virginia. After graduating from high school, he attended George Mason University and pursued an undergraduate degree in Biology. He graduated with High Distinction and was accepted into the Eastern Virginia Medical School, located in Norfolk, Virginia. Following his graduation from EVMS, Dr. Strickland completed his Psychiatry Residency, Child Fellowship and Chief Residency at the University Center for the Health Sciences in Memphis, Tennessee. He is certified in both Adult and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.

After completing his Child Fellowship in 1984, Dr. Strickland accepted a position at the Cleveland Clinic, located in Cleveland, Ohio. Not a fan of Cleveland's winters, he and his family later transitioned to the Cleveland Clinic Florida, located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he eventually served as the Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry for six years. He briefly transitioned to private practice in South Florida, expanding his practice to include Naples, Florida. After a valued colleague, Dr. Paul Zislis, accepted a position at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital (TMH) and recognized the need for child psychiatrists in the area, he reached out to Dr. Strickland. In 2000, Dr. Strickland accepted a position at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital and, along with his family, moved to the area.

Dr. Strickland worked at TMH for over ten years, treating children, adolescents and adults. During that time, along with Dr. Connie Speer, he managed TMH's Child & Adolescent Unit. He has also been on the faculty of the Florida State University College of Medicine since 2003, and he is currently the Clerkship Director for Informatics at the regional campus. In 2011, he accepted a position at the Tallahassee VA Outpatient Clinic, where he was the Chief of Mental Health Services.

Dr. Strickland joined us at Capital City Psychiatry in 2020 - just a week before the COVID shutdown. Although his practice was initially limited to adults aged 18 and older, in his role as faculty for the UCF/HCA Psychiatry Residency Program, he has expanded it to include children and adolescents who are seen as part of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Resident Clinic.
