About me

I finished my Master in Counseling degree in 1997. I opened my own practice, Passionately Ever after Counseling, in 1999 in Collin County, Texas. As I grew my practice I did contract work with major outplacement firms, an alcohol treatment center and a methadone clinic. In my private practice, I have worked with individual adults, couples and teenagers and/or their families. In addition, I have supervised many counseling interns.

Through my own individual counseling and training, I have mastered the art of helping clients identify, respect and honor their free child, viewed as the soul and essence of who they really are. Allowing that "spirit" or "energy" to inspire their life and choices will transform their life into an exciting and passionate adventure. It is this "free spirit" in me that led to the genesis of Passionately Ever After Counseling.

I highly recommend Gary! He has helped me through martial problems, pregnancy/postpartum difficulties, and work issues. His coaching and guidance has improved the quality of my life. That's priceless.

Gary is actually the best! From my first session with Gary I knew he was there to listen to me and help me figure out any problems that I had. Gary has been a great help and I can’t wait to continue talking to him!

I am just going to be blunt with this. Gary is an amazing person to talk to, he makes you think, and challenges you. That is the therapist i didn’t know i needed. There was a time that what he was saying really started to piss me off, but that’s why i came here. To work on myself, and find ways to understand what is going on. You have to be ready and willing to work on yourself. And Gary, is definitely the man that will guide you on that journey. He has outstanding knowledge, extraordinary tactics, that will push you to think. The non judgmental atmosphere helps you express your honest self, your true self, and allows you to set the foundation you would like to build on. I would say, Gary is will give you ways to grow, tell you how it is, as long as you’re ready to accept it. God blessed me with Gary. God bless you.
