I have been a professor in the Department of Psychology, affiliated with the Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program since 1995.  I teach and provide clinical supervision of both psychological assessment and psychotherapy.  I also supervise student research.  My students mostly do research related to family dynamics in families with D/deaf or hard of hearing children, as well as on principles of attachment theory, and the effect of hearing loss on overall adjustment.

I teach courses in psychopathology; methods of psychotherapy; child and adult development; and special topics courses in mindfulness, parent-child attachment theory, and brief psychotherapy.

I have served in the past on the Council on Graduate Education, the University Faculty Senate, and the Faculty Salary and Benefits Committee.  I have also served on a number of smaller committees set up for particular tasks, such as search committees or program evaluation committees.  

I currently serve on the Board of Trustees of The River School.

I am also an Associate Editor for The Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education.

My writing has primarily been in collaboration with students and former students who are active scholars.  I have published recently on topics involving positive perspectives on parenting deaf children; parent personality, stress, and child adjustment in families with Deaf children; and parent personality and stress in parents of children with Cochlear Implants.
