About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas. My work is directed by a desire is to help people experience emotional growth with stronger forms of self-regulation. My goal is to help people establish the foundation(s) that will help them create and maintain greater coping skills. The strengthening of existing personal skills will help a person deal with the difficult events and stressors of their past more successfully. The creation of new skills is life impacting. These new skills will help guide a person as he/she moves toward positive experiences while leaving the negative past behind.

I feel the relationship between a counselor and client is extremely important. My counseling style demonstrates compassionate, affirmation, flexibility, and fairness. I personally feel that healing happens best within an environment of kindness, trust, and understanding.

Mark is an exceptionally communicative and attentive counselor. I set clear goals for my sessions and he is always ready and prepared to meet me where where I was at. He provides fantastic guidance that is catered to my unique experiences. I feel comfortable talking through what I am going through and always feel re-centered after a session.

One of the best therapists for sure! This is my first time receiving therapy and he’s made it so comfortable and welcoming for me. I couldn’t and wouldn’t ask for anyone else. I’m truly thankful and glad I’m able to have someone so cooperative and understanding as Mark. Thanks BetterHelp!
