Welcome to my website. I am a Clinical Psychologist in Pawtucket, RI, USA. I have specialized in working with people after significant losses in their life for almost all of my 40 years as a practitioner. I have also been involved in publication, research, and training around this topic for many years.

This website provides many avenues by which you can learn more about my work. The About Me page provides information about my background. The Workshops page will tell you something about the different types of workshops that I offer. The Publications page leads to a list of my books and professional articles – you can link to the books for purchase, and you can download many of the articles right from this website. Therapy/Consultation describes my clinical and consulting work.  Please note - as of January 1, 2019, I have retired from doing clinical works, and am no longer accepting new clients. I do continue to do single session consultations (usually via Zoom, sometimes in person) for clinicians who are working with a bereaved client, or with bereaved persons themselves. Evaluations gives some examples of the evaluations that I have received from participants in several of my workshops, plus comments from hosting agencies that have used me as a trainer. Information & Contact offers brief information about how to reach me if you would like further information.

Thanks for visiting my website – let me know how I can be of help.

Most of my current professional work involves providing training of mental health professionals, as well as other caregivers for bereaved persons (clergy, funeral directors, etc.) However, the COVID-19 pandemic that swamped the U.S. in the spring of 2020 halted or, at minimum, altered most of my training activities as well. Since the pandemic began, almost all of my trainings have been delivered "virtually," or online. While I hope to return to face to face trainings in the future, it is impossible right now to know precisely when that will happen. Many, although not all, of my trainings are also listed on the website of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and can be found at this link; https://afsp.org/suicide-bereavement-clinician-training
