I am passionate about helping people successfully navigate the challenges in their lives. I believe every child and adult desires to live a life that is significant. They want to have a lasting positive impact on this world and on those around them. They would like to have strong healthy relationships. They want to raise children that are confident, courageous, kind, respectful, and happy. I enjoy helping people achieve these dreams and goals. I want to come along side them and journey with them as they face and overcome the obstacles of life.
I specialize in working with parents and children. I help parents take a collaborative approach with their children to achieve cooperation rather than compliance. I have experience working with substance abuse issues and assisting people with addiction. I also help men with anger and understanding their purpose.
If the client prefers a more spiritual approach to I really enjoy integrating faith with counseling. I find it can really deepen the impact of the therapeutic process when a client wants to discuss the mind, body, and spirit.
I am a married father of three. I have an undergraduate degree in theology and a graduate degree in counseling. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Tulsa, Oklahoma. My wife is also a licensed counselor working with parents and children. I worked as an elementary counselor for 7 years in Tulsa Public Schools. I left the school system to start my own private practice. At my private practice, I work with kids, teenagers, and adults. I utilize play therapy with kids as young as 3 yrs old to help communicate and connect. My biggest passion is coaching parents. I love helping them switch their paradigm and approach their children with a different perspective. I have had the privilege of coaching many parents through this change and it is so exciting to see how drastic the changes are not only in themselves as parents but also in their children and in their marriages.
