Since you are checking out our site, it's likely you are considering counseling help for yourself (or someone close to you). A
number of years ago I was in a similar place. At the time, I was living a pretty "successful" life but began to realize I did not
have the relationship with my wife and children that I wanted. I sought some help from a Christian counselor and was able to begin
a journey of understanding (insight) and healing. This journey has continued as the layers of who I am as a person have become
more evident to me. My desire is to remain on that journey for the rest of my life. I want to keep changing and growing as long
as I can – discovering more of who I am and actually become more of who God created me to be.
Beyond my own personal journey of growth, what has equipped me for walking with you on your journey? I have a Master's degree
in Professional Counseling with emphases on both Sex Therapy and Christian Spirituality from Richmont Graduate University
(formerly PSI). Prior to attending Richmont I had a gratifying career in the corporate world and had both bachelors and
master's degrees from GA Tech. While receiving my masters in counseling I interned with Dr. Douglas Rosenau, a well-known
Christian sex therapist and author of a number of other books including A Celebration of Sex. I've also co-led a number of men's
sexual addiction recovery groups with Dr. Rosenau.
The particular focus of therapy that I am most passionate about helping others with is the area of relationships (I've adapted a
term, relationality, which describes my overall thoughts on relationships). Relationality is a concept that seeks to link
commonalities across the various types of relationships that we all experience and participate in. Relationships may be viewed in
multiple dimensions but tend to group in categories of (1) with God, (2) with self and (3) with others. For example, how we
believe God views us significantly impacts how we view ourselves and how we believe others view us.
Specific areas underneath the overall relationality concept include marital therapy (including pre-engagement, pre-marital and
post-marital counseling), sexual wholeness and addiction, men's issues, intimacy (emotional, physical and spiritual), relational
communication and blended families (including parenting skills).
I have spoken on multiple occasions on Marriage and Married Sexuality and my wife and I have led couples retreats on dealing with
emotional pain and experiencing emotional intimacy.
I have been married for 27 years, have 6 children (yours, mine and ours – ranging in age from 34 to 21) and 8 grandchildren and
My calling and my joy is to walk with individuals and couples to identify the true source of their relational pain and journey
with them on a path of growth and healing and I look forward to being a part of your journey toward growth and healing.

|Soul Care is on
For if we be harassed by poverty, or saddened by bereavement...or vexed by any kind of calamity, let good men visit us,
men who can not only rejoice with them that rejoice, but also weep with them that weep...the effect is that rough things
become smooth, heavy burdens are lightened, and difficulties vanquished most wonderfully.
—Augustine of Hippo
