I would like to state that my mission and or calling is to assist individuals in areas in their lives where they are struggling. This can be from past traumas, present on going relationships, or future events. I do what I do simply because it’s my passion, not my job.
I focus my training on adults, couples, and teens. I have specialized training in E.M.D.R., certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and have a heart for treating traumatized individuals. I have experience in working with addicts (Substance Abuse) and mental health disorders (Bi-Polar, Anxiety, Schizoaffective Disorder, Schizophrenia, Depression). I have also had experience in career counseling. I am open and fully culturally competent to work with biblically based individuals as well.
I have worked in several psychiatric hospital settings for 3 years which included working with a treatment team. This included a nursing staff and doctor to assist providing the client both psychological (therapy) treatment as well as the pharmacology aspect. I have been in private practice for almost 3 years and have worked with a wide spectrum of clients including children. I prefer to work with 12 yrs. and older only due to my experience with teens and adults.
I love sports and the outdoors. Although I haven’t done much of what I would like to do, such as skydiving or hunting, I still have that craving and curiosity for it. I am a Houstonian. However, I received my Masters while attending Dallas Baptist University. I have a passion for ministry and serving people.

Thank you so much Joseph, for working with me.
Joseph is very attentive, respectful and doesn't make you feel like you're being judged. He definitely helps me see things from view points that help me to understand me. Within the first week of talking to him I really started feeling better about everything. He listens and I am comfortable talking with him, even if its just to vent. I would recommend him to anyone.
