I am a licensed Ph.D. clinical psychologist. I am the co-developer of GST (Group ST) and available for Skype supervision and training in individual and group ST and self-therapy for schema therapists and those in the training process. I co-direct the Schema Therapy Midwest - Indianapolis ISST training program in Individual & Group ST. I am an Adjunct Professor of Clinical Psychology at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and Research Director of the Center for Borderline Personality Disorder Treatment & Research at Indiana University School of Medicine - Eskenazi Health. I am active in research to evaluate the effectiveness of group ST and have been principal investigator and co-PI on international trials of group ST. After 25 years as faculty, I now am in private consulting, training and supervision of Schema Therapy. Together with Ida Shaw I give training internationally (15 countries so far).
I have written two books on ST published by Wiley-Blackwell: Group Schema Therapy for Borderline Personality Disorder, 2012 and The Schema Therapy Clinician's Guide, 2014 and one for Guilford Press (2018) Experiencing Schema Therapy from the Inside Out: A Self-practice/Self-reflection WOrkbook for Therapists. A DVD of our group ST model is also available: Group Schema Therapy: an Innovative Approach to treating patients with personality disorder in groups, IVAH 2012. I have several published journal articles and chapters in many ST edited volumes. I was the ISST Coordinator for Training & Certification 2012-2018 and am currently chair of the Training & Certification Advisory Board..
