I am a licensed psychologist in Texas. I am also a Professor at The Texas School of Professional Psychology at Argosy/Dallas as well as principal author of the book, Cult and Ritual Abuse: Its History, Anthropology and Recent Discovery in Contemporary America (2000). I am co-author of Recovery from Dissociative Identity Disorder scheduled for publication in 2005 and co-editor and contributor to Ritual Abuse in the Twenty-first Century: Clinical, Forensic, Social and Political Considerations, scheduled for publication in 2006. I am currently serving on the Board of Trustees of the Texas Psychological Association.
Special Areas of Interest
My special areas of interest include: suicide risk, borderline personality disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, dissociative disorders, hypnosis, sexual and ritual abuse, and the psychological consequences of childhood trauma. In addition to my clinical work, I provide forensic services in civil and criminal venues, particularly in cases where child abuse, sexual abuse and/or ritual abuse are elements of the case or when issues of hypnosis, false memories and/or parental alienation are raised. I have also completed a 2-year postdoctoral certification program in psychopharmacology.
I see a limited number of patients by appointment only at my Argosy campus office. My office accepts cash, credit cards or checks in payment of all professional fees. I do not accept any insurance assignment including Medicare and Medicaid. My office will be happy to provide appropriate documentation to submit to the patient's insurer for reimbursement within the limits of the patient's policy.
Married since 1970, I am the proud father of two and the grandfather of four. I was commissioned as an officer in the USAF in 1971 and served domestically and overseas until 1983. I have been practicing in Dallas, Texas since 1983.
I attended University of North Texas under a full Air Force ROTC scholarship and received my Master's degree through a teaching fellowship at UNT. I was awarded an Air Force Institute of Technology Scholarship and received my Ph.D. in 1978.
