Joshua Eagle, Psy.D. is the Dean of Students at Commonwealth School. He also maintains a small private practice in Brookline. Prior to arriving at Commonwealth, Dr. Eagle served as the coordinator of child and adolescent services at the Brookline Community Mental Health Center. In that capacity, he worked with children and families dealing with a wide range of mental health challenges, with a subspecialty in incorporating mindfulness and behavioral activation strategies in treating adolescent males with ADHD. Additionally, he supervised and taught other clinicians in the Center’s internship and post-doc program and ran a transition to independent living program for homeless young men. In his free time, Dr. Eagle likes to spend time with his wife and three young children and also very much enjoys running (even in the winter!).
