Arkansas is where I was born and I continue to live in Arkansas today. I was raised in the city and exposed to the outdoors as a child, which offered a unique perspective on life. I use that perspective in my adult life and it ultimately shows up in my therapy approach as well. I received a bachelors of arts degree in psychology from Arkansas State University in August of 2011 . I then attended Henderson State University, where I met my wife where we both studied clinical mental health counseling and received our masters of science in December of 2013. We both...

I enjoy walking with clients on their journey to improved mental and emotional health. Most of us spend our lifetimes trying to understand and grasp the ideas that lead to more happiness and better well-being. It is still an honor, even after 28 years of practice, to be chosen to accompany people on that path. I most enjoy issues related to phases of life, work (such as burnout, job stress, or career changes), and maintaining recovery from addiction.

We are all worthy of love, happiness and respect, as long as these do not come at the expense of others. Happiness, joy, peace, fulfillment, love and meaning may not be something we just find, they are likely things we must discover, create and nurture throughout our lives. Our current selves are the products of our past however this does not define who we are. I believe we all have basic human needs that are in constant flux and we are responsible for finding methods to fulfill those needs through the choices we make and relationships we maintain.
