I grew up right down the road in Richardson and am grateful to raise my family in my hometown. I did manage to get out of Dallas for a few years for my undergraduate studies at Texas A&M University where I received a B.S. in Organizational Development. However, it was not long before I found myself back in Dallas completing my Master’s in Biblical Counseling at Dallas Theological Seminary.
My passion for counseling grew from the freedom I found working with my own counselors and mentors as a young man. I traveled down a few other roads with my career before I became a counselor but always felt drawn back to working with people on a more individual setting. There is nothing else I could imagine myself doing with my life.
I have spent the past decade working in various private practice settings. Founding Magnolia Counseling Group, with my four business partners and friends, is the best thing I have gotten to do with my career so far. The majority of the work I do is in relationship counseling, anxiety disorder, depressive disorders, and obsessive compulsive disorders; however, I work with a myriad of issues on a daily basis. While I am a Christian counselor, I work with people from various belief systems and backgrounds. I believe the most important element in the counseling process is the relationship between the client and the therapist. I work whole-heartedly to meet my clients where they are in order to create a warm and open environment.
My interest include: spending time with my wife and son outside, pop up campers, anything involving food, metal detecting, and weather below 80 degrees. My perfect day is a combination of all of the above.
