I am a licensed psychologist in Massachusetts, specializing in cognitive behavioral psychotherapy and Deaf
mental health care. I provide training and consultation on these topics. I also have a private psychotherapy
practice in Natick, Massachusetts.
I was, for 14 years, the unit clinical director and psychologist of a specialty Deaf psychiatric inpatient unit. I
worked for six years, ending in March 2016, as a psychologist forDeaf Services in an agency called Advocates
Inc. in Framingham, Mass. I am also an adjunct instructor at Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts,
teaching several graduate counseling and psychiatric rehabilitation courses and an adjunct assistant professor
of psychiatry at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, Massachusetts. My publications
include five books: Deaf mental health care (edited); Culturally affirmative psychotherapy with Deaf persons
(co-edited with Michael Harvey); Mental health care of Deaf people: A culturally affirmative approach (co-edited
with Sanjay Gulati) and Cognitive behavioral therapy for Deaf and hearing persons with language and learning
challenges. My newest book, Preparing Deaf and hearing persons with language and learning challenges for
CBT was published August 2016. I am hard at work at my next book, co-edited with Wyatte Hall, to be called,
Language deprivation and Deaf mental health, to be published by Routledge, probably in 2019.
