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 for Deaf Services in an agency called Advocates
Inc. in Framingham, Mass. I was an adjunct instructor at Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts for a
decade, teaching several graduate counseling and psychiatric rehabilitation courses, and I am an adjunct
assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, Massachusetts.
