About Me

I am a licensed clinical psychologist and health service provider with over 12 years of experience.  I have trained and/or worked in a broad range of settings and with a variety of psychological problems, including:

  • Individual, group, and family therapy with college students, veterans, court-ordered individuals, children, adolescents, families, adults and older adults

  • Psychological and neuropsychological assessment in both outpatient and locked settings

  • Inpatient psychiatric units at medical centers and psychiatric hospitals

  • Locked residential programs for individuals with serious mental illness, substance abuse, and/or significant behavior problems

  • Evaluating individuals brought into an Emergency Department due to safety concerns

  • Assessing and treating clients in skilled nursing facilities and assisted living facilities

Since 2010, I have focused much of my clinical work in geriatrics, and I greatly enjoy working with older people and their families.  I have several years of experience working in skilled nursing facilities, where I performed cognitive evaluations, created behavior plans for residents with dementia, and provided individual and family therapy for a wide range of disorders.

I also work as the Director of Professional Affairs for the Massachusetts Psychological Association.  My role there includes advocating for better access to mental health care, serving on behavioral health-related state task forces and working groups, and providing practice-related consultations to other psychologists.

My other professional passion is teaching and training.  I spent 4 years as a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department at the University of New Hampshire.  I also created a number of training programs for clinical and non-clinical staff in skilled nursing facilities, and continues to provide conference presentations and continuing education seminars for mental health professionals.
