I have been a Christian counselor since 1986. My past experiences include working with Rapha Treatment Centers for ten years in adult and adolescent psychiatric and chemical dependency treatment. Most of my experience in working with adults and adolescents has been in dealing with a variety of issues including marriage and family struggles, drug and alcohol addiction, sexual addiction, men’s issues, unwanted same sex attraction, depression and with other life struggles.
I believe it is important that you know the perspective I take in addressing issues of life and that a relationship with God is of the utmost importance in experiencing all that you are intended for. However, I want you to know that I am sensitive to meeting you where you are in your own spiritual life. I very much enjoy the work I do and I take it very seriously. My commitment is to give you the best I have to offer. I also ask that you give your best to the process.
I work with trauma victims and have advanced training in EMDR and Trauma Resolution Therapy (TRT). I am a Certified Clinical Sexual Addiction Specialist through the International Association of Certified Sexual Addiction Specialists (IACSAS). I am also a member of the American Association of Certified Christian Sexual Addiction Specialists. I have served as a speaker on a variety of topics in conferences, workshops, seminars, and classes.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in Psychology and Christianity and a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology. I pursued additional post-graduate training to secure licensure in Texas as a Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor. I have been married since 1986 and have four children.
