As the Director of the Behavior Therapy and Psychotherapy Center, my responsibilities include managing the clinic and supporting a scientist-practitioner model of training for pre-doctoral clinicians.

Interpersonal Violence topics include: child victimization, sexual abuse, trauma, domestic violence, and criminality. I also conduct forensic evaluations and provide expert testimony for the courts. Two recently developed community programs are Connecting Cultures and the New England Survivors of Torture and Trauma (NESTT):
