About me

I have been doing counseling and psychotherapy for many years. I am also a retired Presbyterian minister. Much of the time before official retirement I was working full-time for a counseling agency and part-time for a church. Because I greatly enjoy working with people, I have continued to maintain a private counseling practice, working with both individuals and families. I have a MA degree from the University of Texas and another from the University of Chicago. I make use of several therapy styles, including client-centered, Imago, "emotionally focused," and cognitive/behavioral. I am a widower with three sons and three grandchildren.
