Larry J. Nulton, Ph.D.
Larry J. Nulton, PhD, graduated from Tyrone High School in 1981. After graduating from Penn State University with a BS in Psychology, Dr. Nulton continued his education at West Chester University, earning a Masters Degree in Psychology. His educational endeavors culminated in a doctorate from Bowling Green State University. Dr. Nulton was one of eight students accepted from a pool of over 800 applicants. He completed his dissertation, entitled “Neuropsychological Correlates of Hypertension: A Psychophysiological Study” in 1995. He was accepted as a psychology resident at Geisinger Medical Center.
Dr. Nulton has over twenty years of experience in his field and is a respected and well-known clinician across the state of Pennsylvania. He has worked as a therapist, supervisor, EAP Psychologist, consultant, and educator. He truly made his mark, however, when he developed an agency to provide comprehensive psychological and psychiatric services to children and adults. In 1995, Nulton Diagnostic & Treatment Center opened its doors with 5 employees. Within 5 years, the agency had grown to over 300 employees offering treatment in various programs including Outpatient Psychiatry and Psychology, Partial Hospitalization, School, Home and Community Therapeutic Services, Family Based Intervention, and Geriatric Services. He grew from one office location in Richland, to seven locations including Altoona, Bedford, Ebensburg, Somerset, Richland, Indiana, and Westmont.
Dr. Nulton recently sold the Therapeutic Support Services portion of his agency so he could concentrate his efforts in further developing clinical programs. Dr. Nulton has since developed a Residential Treatment Facility, Day Treatment Programs in Cambria and Bedford counties, and an extensive Geriatric Program that is offering psychiatric and psychological services to patients in Cambria, Somerset, Bedford, Indiana and Blair counties. Dr. Nulton was also recently selected to serve on the Review Committee for Value Behavioral Health.
Dr. Nulton is dedicated to community service. He was instrumental in the development of the Learning Lamp, a non-profit tutoring center that provides quality educational experiences for children regardless of their ability to pay for such services. Dr. Nulton is also heavily involved with the Goodwill Industries. Goodwill has honored Dr. Nulton several times through the years for his dedication and continued support of their agency.
In addition, Dr. Nulton serves on the Johnstown Symphony Board and supports Beginnings (an agency focused on at- risk infants and preschoolers).
Dr. Nulton resides in Westmont, a suburb of Johnstown, PA. He is married to Dr. Lorraine Napora-Nulton with whom he has two sons, Corbin (13) and Cameron (9). He is the son of Charles and Joanne Nulton of Tyrone and brother of Robert Nulton (San Antonio) and Timothy Nulton (Tyrone).
