I am a father, husband, and lifelong learner; a clinician, an advocate, consultant, and ally. Throughout my life, I have lived in Massachusetts, Virginia, Kentucky, the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.
I earned my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Gallaudet University. My dissertation empirically examined the 'Crab Theory' phenomenon as it pertains to intragroup discriminatory attitudes within the Deaf community.
I am currently an In-Home Therapist and Intensive Care Coordinator at Walden Community Services, a Deaf-specialty community service agency providing therapeutic support services to children and families impacted by trauma or other behavioral health concerns. Prior work and training experiences include hospitals, a university mental health center, supportive group home programs, a residential treatment program for Deaf children with emotional and behavioral challenges, and federal corrections institutions of low, medium, and high security levels. My research interests include implicit bias and oppression; and effective treatment of trauma via caregiver intervention.
