Here are some things about me to help you determine whether or not my services are right for you:
After graduating from Dulles High School in Sugar Land, I received a baseball scholarship to San Jac in Houston. While at San Jac, I received the Academic Excellence Award and had the privilege to play in the Junior College World Series both years. Although this was an incredible experience, I am most grateful for the friendships I made through baseball that continue to this day.
After my baseball career came to a close, I transferred to The University of Texas at Austin and received a degree in Marketing from The Red McCombs School of Business. I was also a member of the professional business fraternity, Alpha Kappa Psi, where I received the Best Active Award for my service to the organization.
After graduating from UT and starting my career, I later began my journey at the University of Houston-Victoria (Sugar Land campus) and received a Master of Education in Counseling.
Since becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor, I enjoy helping teens and adults work through a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, and relationship struggles. Additionally, I counsel couples and also high performers such as athletes and business executives.
On a personal note, I have been married nearly 20 years and have two children. Since we met, my wife and I have served together at Second Baptist Church and credit this as a major reason for our close relationship. I am also part-time counseling staff at Second.
Finally, I am the former chaplain of the Sugar Land Skeeters professional baseball team (now the Space Cowboys). This opportunity began in the inaugural season of 2012 and lasted through their championship season of 2016. Although I miss serving the players, coaches, umpires, and front office, I knew it was time to pass the torch in order to spend more time with my family.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story, and I hope it will assist you in finding a therapist who is right for your family.
