I am a compassionate, experienced and dedicated therapist committed to helping others who are struggling with a variety of life concerns and issues, and are not experiencing life as fully as they would like. I am married for 44years, have 3 adult children and 6 grandchildren (Yea!). Together my wife, family and I have been through and weathered many significant life challenges.
It is because of those who have come along side me and my wife, that I am now privileged to do the same and serve as a counselor.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (TX # 66905) and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (TX # 201696).
I really enjoy serving couples (engaged, premarital, married) and individual adults. Love to focus on building deeper and joy-filled relationships and to help folks deal with related issues that cloud or serve as obstacles to this, including connecting, communicating, emotional attunement, "hearing each other", understanding "why we do what we do", anger, forgiveness, intimacy including sexual intimacy, infidelity, unresolved childhood issues affecting present living, career/life transitions, anxiety, fear, stress, depression, self-esteem and loss and grief. I enjoy helping couples build solid marriage and family foundations.
I have much life experience and have been through several life and career/job transitions.
While raising our kids I earned a BS degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Iowa (1983), an MBA from Pepperdine University (1992) and have more than 26 years experience in the business arena, before being called into counseling.
In 2010 I earned a Masters of Arts in Professional Counseling with a specialization in Marriage and Family Counseling.
Along the way, I learned “I am not perfect, but am enough" and strive to help clients feel the same.
I deeply care, understand and want to help,
