I have been a therapist at the Houston Center for Christian Counseling since 1991. I have graduated with a Masters Degree in Psychology from Houston Baptist University in 1991 and received my Professional Counselor’s License in 1993. Prior to this, I worked for Conoco/Vista Chemical Company as a Chemical Engineer and Director of Planning. The change in career paths came as a calling from the Lord to “comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God” (2 Corinthians 1:4-6).
I counsel adolescents and adults in individual, couples, marital and group settings at the Katy location. I am experienced in treating most problems with special interest in depression, anxiety, anger, self-esteem and marriage. My normal mode of counseling is biblical/cognitive-behavioral.
I married in 1970 and have 2 adult children, 5 grandchildren, and 1 great grandson. I attend Katy Bible Church and have ministered weekly for 10 years (2000 – 2010) at the Juvenile Boot Camp in Katy.
