Interests and Expertise

My research interests are broadly defined within the domains of personality disorders and personality assessment.  I am interested in the developmental processes that influence the development of pathological personality, the manner in which personality pathology is diagnosed and classified, and the ways in which personality assessment informs the diagnostic manuals and psychotherapy.  More specifically, I am interested in the construct of a depressive personality and its relationship to development and similar other psychopathologies.  I also have other interests in Dependent Personality Disorder and problematic dependency, Borderline Personality Disorder, and Narcissistic Personality Disorder and pathological narcissism.  My teaching interests are in personality theory, personality disorders, personality assessment, and psychodynamic psychotherapy.

I am now the Editor of the Journal of Personality Assessment, and an Associate Editor for the Journal of Personality Disorders. I am on the Editorial Boards of Personality Disorders: Theory, Research, and Treatment, the Journal of Personality Assessment, Psychological Injury and the Law, and Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic. 

I am fully licensed in the states of Michigan and Texas and maintain a small private practice in Northville, Michigan. My professional affiliations include:  the American Psychological Association, the Society for Personality Assessment, and the American Psychoanalytic Association (Research Associate).
