I am a Licensed Marital and Family Therapist (LMFT) and Certified Sex Addiction Therapist candidate (CSAT) in private practice at Family Solutions Counseling in NW Oklahoma City. I have a passion for helping build and strengthen marital and parent-child relationships as well as helping individuals with personal growth. Although my strongest strengths lie in the areas of communication and conflict resolution, rebuilding relationships after infidelity, parenting and parent-child relational issues, grief and loss, and overcoming sexual addictions and impulsivity, my expertise cover a wide-array of mental health and relational issues.
I believe that people are inherently good; therefore, it is my perspective that people are not the problem, but problems simply find their way into people's lives. My job is to help individuals, couples, and families learn to effectively cope with their existing problems as well as find solutions that will remove the problems from their lives and relationships so they can function at a higher capacity.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Family Studies and Vocational Ministry from Oklahoma Christian University. I acquired a Master’s degree in the field of Marriage & Family Therapy from Oklahoma State University.
I am a member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) as well as the Oklahoma Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (OKAMFT). I also currently serve as a board member for the OKAMFT.
My family is the highlight of my life. I have been married for over a decade and we have two lovely boys. We are very active in our church where I serve as the college minister. My wife, a college professor, is also heavily involved with the college ministry as well as the children’s ministry.
Other than spending time with my family and church family, I have recently become heavily involved in running. I ran my first full marathon at the 2012 Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon. In addition to running, I enjoy playing many other sports. During my down time, there is nothing more relaxing than reading a book or casting a line.
