Here are some things about me that may help in determining 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 pursuing a career, I decided to begin my journey at the University of Houston-Victoria (Sugar Land campus) where I received a Master of Education in Counseling. Having maintained a 3.9 GPA while thriving in my field experience proved to me that counseling was indeed the right path.
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 15 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. Currently we teach and mentor engaged and newlywed couples.
Finally, I am the former chaplain of the Sugar Land Skeeters professional baseball team. 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.
