About me

I have been an outpatient mental health practioner since 1998. I have mainly worked with adults with dual diagnosis and mostly in individual sessions. I am a white male, but I am very liberal and multicultural. I am married to an Asian American and live in Southeast Texas with a mainly Hispanic/Mexican American population. I also have several neighbors in the military.

I have treated patients on an outpatient basis in clinics for depression, schizophrenia, anxiety, and also with a dual diagnosis involving an addiction. I have several methods for managing stress, anxiety, and anger. I also can do diagnostic impressions via psychosocial assessments and treatment plans. I began my practice in Louisiana in 1998 and I have been practicing in Texas since 2012. I began my practice after earning my degree in counselor education and receiving my LPC. I also hold degrees in psychology at the bachelors and masters level and in social work at the masters level.

I speak and understand American English. My LPC Texas license number is 65372 and is currently active. And in June 2021, I passed my ASWB licensing exam in social work. I applied and should get my LMSW certificate in the mail by end of August 2021.

Joey is very supportive, understanding, and creates a safe space for one to share their thoughts and feelings. He helps me make sense of the complex situations in my mind, and process them better. He also offers a different perspective to make you feel less alone and gives different methods of dealing with anxiety too.

I e only spoken with Joey once before the holidays but in that one session he said something that I had been thinking but couldn’t quite make the change from jobs. I carry around a lot of stress from my current position and his input helped me make the decision to take the leap and start work with a different company.
