Since 1977, I have performed diagnostic psychological testing and behavioral treatment planning, concentrating on children with mental retardation, developmental disabilities and autism.  As a certified school psychologist, I have helped mentally and emotionally challenged children to achieve greater success in school.  I have presented my professional work in the areas of treatment outcome measurement, mental imagery, psychotherapy and behavior modification at state and national meetings of professional psychological associations and at meetings of the American Association on Mental Retardation.  I invented a device called the "Behavior Barometer" which has proven to be very effective at helping children ages 2-10 to change destructive behavior patterns and a diagnostic tool to facilitate the discovery of Lyme disease in children.  I provide leadership to a nonprofit Foundation that provides training and supervision to providers of Behavior Specialist, Mobile Therapist and Therapeutic Staff Support (EPSDT “Behavioral Health Rehabilitation”) services.  I direct a group of several other psychologists who oversee the delivery of these EPSDT services to children who depend on Medical Assistance for their healthcare needs and created a facility where diagnostic psychological evaluations of Pennsylvania children with disabilities can be completed quickly and at no cost to families, regardless of income.  I have been married to my wife, Kathie, since 1980 and have two children.


I am available to assist in establishing and accessing EPSDT services and creating collaborative relationships with governmental and mental health treatment professionals in Pennsylvania and other states.   CLICK HERE to schedule a private consultation
