Areas of Expertise


Relevant Experiences

In my 40 years of practice of psychology, I have evaluated numerous accident victims. I also have evaluated, as well as treated many amputees. Some lost limbs in industrial accidents, and others lost limbs in other types of accidents. I have served on (and remain a member of) the Disability Evaluators' Panel for the Bureau of Worker's Compensation. In that role, I have been charged with determining the veracity of alleged psychological conditions, and if the conditions existed, whether or not they were caused by (or if pre-existing, substantially aggravated by) the injury. In that role, I served as a neutral evaluator/expert, neither advocating for the injured party or for the employer/defendant. In other cases, I have served as an expert for one of the parties. In my clinical work, I have treated persons who were injured, who suffered from various depressive, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorders as a result of injuries sustained, and I have also treated patients to overcome such conditions.
I have also treated children and evaluated families in domestic relations cases, often as a court appointed expert. These cases have included some in which there were allegations of sexual abuse. I have also examined and treated numerous PTSD sufferers, and I feel very comfortable with my knowledge of this disorder and how it can affect those with the disorder.
