I have extensive experience working with adolescent and adult males who have demonstrated contact or non-contact sexual behavior problems. Such behaviors may or may not have resulted in juvenile or adult criminal charges or convictions, or protective services substantiations.
I have evaluated many individuals who have demonstrated non-sexual violent behaviors such as: assault, aggravated domestic assault, armed robbery, arson, kidnapping, manslaughter, and murder.
Referrals of individuals with intellectual disabilities demonstrating the above behaviors are appropriate and welcomed.
Early in my professional career, I was a Designated Mental Health Professional while working on an emergency mental health psychiatric team. I also worked as a substance abuse counselor, a protective services social worker, and as medical hospital social worker.
I first began working with adult male sex offenders in 1982, when I facilitated an outpatient sex offender treatment group in Brattleboro, Vermont. I have primarily worked as an evaluator of adult and adolescent male sexual offenders since 1990. After being introduced to the Hare Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (PCL-R) in 1995, I also began evaluating sexual and non-sexual violent offenders regarding psychopathy.
In 1987, I became the program evaluator for the Vermont Treatment Program for Sexual Abusers (VTPSA), an incarcerative sex offender treatment program that became a model for other prison sex offender treatment programs around the world. I was the VTPSA program evaluator for 28 years until May 2015.
Between December 1995 and August 2016, I also provided sex offender evaluation services to Resolutions Programs in Montpelier, Vermont. Since 1987, I have conducted several thousand Psychosexual Evaluations.
In 1997, I became one of the first in the nation to be certified in the use of the Hare Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (PCL-R). This is considered the “gold standard” for the assessment of psychopathy. To date, I have completed over 350 psychopathy assessments. Between 1997 and 2004, I contracted with the Vermont Department of Corrections to provide nonsexual violent offender risk assessments using the PCL-R, the Violence Risk Assessment Guide (VRAG), and the Level of Service Inventory-Revised (LSI-R).
I earned my Doctor of Psychology degree (Psy.D.) from Union Institute & University in August 2013; my dissertation involved case studies of several offenders deeed to exhibit Extreme Psychopathy. I became a Vermont Licensed Psychologist-Doctorate in November 2015. and soon thereafter started my own assessment practice. In October of 2016, the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB) recognized me as a National Register Behavioral Health Psychologist.
