Prior to becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor, I was on the staff of Scope Ministries in Oklahoma City where I worked as a chaplain, teacher, group facilitator, fund raiser and personal guidance minister. In 2006 I returned to college to persue a degree that would allow for professional licensure. In 2010 I graduated from Southern Nazarene University with a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy. Upon graduation, I joined a counseling agency in Oklahoma City where I provided therapy for low income families, foster families and children who were victims of trauma. In October 2014 I began working in a private practice where I have provided therapy for individuals struggling with relationships and other mental and behavior health issues. I am a member of the American Psychological Association. I currently reside in Blanchard with my wife of 33 years. We have two grown children and three grandchildren.
