I am an ordained minister and Deacon in the Southern Baptist church and a Licensed Professional Counselor/Intern in the state of Texas.I have a Master of Science in Counseling from University of Houston - Clear Lake.I also have a Master of Arts in Education Administration from University of Houston - Victoria. My Bachelor of Arts in Psychology is from Baylor University. The first part of my career was in construction management and the rest has been in education.These two experiences have helped me understand unique family dynamics.I regularly attend continuing education related to my field, as a counselor and educator.I have a passion to work with families and couples towards understanding what God’s plan is for them.My formal education has prepared me to work with individuals, marriages, families, and groups.My wife and I have been married since 1981.We have three grown children, whom have all returned to our home to live for a season. This has given me a passion to help other family members understand and prepare for adult children living with their parents.
The counseling setting is a unique environment for everyone; therefore, I tailor as treatment plan based on what is most beneficial to the individual or couple in helping accomplish their goals and understand their full potential in God’s plan.I believe in building a trusting and caring relationship with my clients.I prefer to use evidence-based treatments, blending my training in psychology with my experience in theology.I utilize interventions from Gottman Level One, Solution Focused Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, Gestalt Therapy and Logotherapy.
