After spending four enlightening years in the Marine Corp, I attended Harding University in Arkansas where I earned my bachelors degree and masters degree. I am a Clinical member of both the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy and the American Association of Christian Counselors. I’ve worked as a manager in residential and out-patient treatment centers for adults and adolescents who struggled with depression, substance dependency and other challenging issues. I was also on the Board of Directors for the National Association of Therapeutic Wilderness Camps. I have a love and passion for counseling; it’s what I enjoy doing.
