Part 7: Voices from AUNE PsyD Graduates in the Time of the Pandemic

Dr. Liza Colby (Antioch University New England, PsyD ’09) runs a practice seeing all ages of clients. She has a particular interest in serving clients who are older or who have disabilities, in appropriate ways. She talks about her past experiences in seeking jobs and her current experience doing teletherapy. She notes that her personal use of a walker is invisible over the phone, creating questions about when to disclose personal information to clients. We are very proud of our alumni who do excellent work with people who have often struggled to find competent, culturally sensitive clinical services.

Dr. Thom Hulslander (Antioch University New England, PsyD ’16) is another graduate with multiple roles in his job, including some direct clinical work with complicated cases, and great responsibility as Director of Adult Services, a large department in a large mental health center in Nashua, NH. He supervises a large staff who serve on a number of clinical teams, and oversees, monitors, and evaluates multiple programs within his charge. His ability to convert programs and dozens of staff members to working on a virtual platform during the COVID-19 epidemic is remarkable. We are so proud of our alumni who have moved into high-level positions and make mental health service systems work, even in challenging circumstances.
