Do you feel like you don’t quite fit into either the Deaf World or the hearing but can function in both? 

  • Do you feel frustrated with hearing people who don’t seem to understand why sign language is so important to you?
  • Do you struggle with loneliness, depression, or anxiety that affects your relationships at work or home?
  • Are you the parent of a deaf child who needs family counseling or help getting school services?
  • Do you have an aging parent who is experiencing  frustration in not being able to participate in family events anymore?
  • Are you a professional working with the deaf and need the knowledge of an expert?

Hello!  I am a hearing-impaired psychologist. I specialize in working with people who are deaf or hard of hearing (D/HOH), their families, and other professionals, agencies, and organizations that care for them.

I offer a full range of services including in-person psychotherapy, teletherapy, consultation and assessment.  At this time during the pandemic, however, I am only offering teletherapy. 

I also work with educators, attorneys, and medical professionals who need expert assistance with the deaf, including consultation, psychological and educational assessment, and expert report and testimony.

My areas of psychotherapy specialization include:

  • Prelingual and late onset hearing loss
  • Choosing or adjusting to cochlear implants
  • Parenting deaf and hard of hearing children
  • Mainstreaming students in public and private schools
  • Trauma & PTSD
  • Physical, sexual, and emotional abuse
  • Gender & sexual identity issues
  • Age related hearing loss
