About me

I am a therapist that genuinely hopes the best for my clients and works to reach treatment expectations as determined by my clients. My experiences in life have provided insight to the struggles and difficulties life presents. I am a Generation Xer having been born in 1966. Most of my formative years were spent in Ohio. My family moved to South Carolina right as I entered into high school. Sports has played an important role in my life. My hopes of getting into recreation management was redirected in college. I discovered the Family Therapy course offered one semester in college and enrolled. I thoroughly enjoyed the course. So, that lead me into the pursuit of becoming a psychotherapist. The path of obtaining higher education and licensure as a professional counselor took me to Texas. I received my initial training through a seminary my grandfather attended in the early 1920s. In 1989, I married and moved to Texas to follow my dream. The training I received has served me well. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the modality of choice for me in my practice. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy puts the emphasis on thoughts that lead to feelings which in turn manifest in our behaviors. Aiming to address the way we think and correct it can significantly impact lasting change to behaviors. I feel strongly about connecting with my clients and working toward a therapeutic alliance. Doing my best to give clients information, encouragement has been a successful formula in my practice.

He's a very intelligent and engaging individual. He is helping me work through a few primary issues, as my relationship implodes. He's easy to talk to and has a fun personality. I've been enjoying my sessions and learning a lot about myself. Two thumbs up.
