About me

I have been in counseling for over 40 years while starting out in the church setting. I became a licensed professional counselor about 17 years ago in order to specialize in certain types of counseling. For the past fifteen years, I have been handling Child Protective Services cases. These have involved family dysfunction, addiction, and abuse of different types. I continue to do religious counseling for people searching for spiritual meaning in life.
I have undergraduate and graduate degrees in theology. I also have a professional counseling degree in psychology. I was a senior pastor of a evangelical church for forty-three years. I have seen the best and worst in people. I have also seen it in myself.
I believe that all people have a positive and successful self. It may take some time to find that person within someone, but it is well worth the search.
I use Cognitive-Behavioral therapy as well as Rogerian therapy. Carl Rogers believed that all people deserved to be treated with respect and compassion. I care personally for the clients that I see and invest myself in their wellness.

I have been part of a Christian cult for a number of years and he helped give me another perspective about the Bible and Christianity. He recommended some books which I found very valuable. I will keep him in mind when I need more counseling moving forward.

I am so glad I was connected to Sam as I’ve been looking for a Christian therapist for a long time. He’s very understanding and empathetic. He allows me to communicate in a way I feel at ease and that makes me extremely comfortable with him, especially since I’m a very shy and quiet person. I’d totally recommend him to anyone.
