Overview

Dr. Whitaker received her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University New England in 2006. She completed her internship in a combined position with SUNY-Albany Counseling Center and Ellis Mental Health Clinic in Schenectady, NY. Dr. Whitaker began her post-doc hours as a Child and Family Therapist at Riverbend Community Mental Health before transitioning into a position as the Coordinator of Deaf Services for the State of New Hampshire. As Coordinator of Deaf Services, Dr. Whitaker managed a statewide program housed at Greater Nashua Mental Health Center with the mission of increasing accessibility to culturally and linguistically appropriate mental health services for people who are deaf throughout New Hampshire. In the more than 3-1/2 years that Dr. Whitaker managed the program, she focused on outreach and education to the under-served Deaf Community and provided multiple training programs throughout the state on the provision of mental health services to people who are deaf. These initiatives resulted in the program tripling in size under Dr. Whitaker's leadership.

In August of 2010, Dr. Whitaker became Director of Assessment and Brief Treatment at Greater Nashua Mental Health Center. In this position, she manages an adult outpatient program that serves over 2000 individuals in the Greater Nashua area and is developing a doctoral training site, while also continuing to be involved in the management of the Deaf Services program. Dr. Whitaker is fluent in American Sign Language and is dual-licensed as a psychologist and a sign language interpreter in New Hampshire.
