Biography

I was born in the USA (as in the song), but spent most of my life in Australia. I have four adult children. I gained a MTh (Australian College of Theology, 1981) and a PhD (Boston University, 1987). I served in parish ministry, as an Anglican minister in the parishes of St John's Reid, an associate in Church of the Redeemer in Boston and rector of St Pauls Millis, then Holy Covenant, Jamieson. In 1993 I went into private practice as a clinical psychologist, founding Canberra Clinical and Forensic Psychology in Canberra City with over twenty psychologists. I taught pastoral counselling at St Marks for many years. For five years I was the convenor of the clinical psychology training program at University of Canberra and in February 2015 I came to CSU/St Marks as Wicking Professor of Ageing and Practical Theology and director of CAPS. I presently worship at Wesley Uniting Church in Forrest, Canberra. I have written seven books most recently Schema Therapy for Couples with Wiley-Blackwell, 2015, and many refereed articles most recently Grounded Theology of Luck with Theology Today.
