About Me

I am a native Texan, born to a small town, Southern Baptist pastor’s family on June 27, 1947. I am also a born counselor and therapist! As a teenager, other teens and even adults came to me to confess, get advice, or simply talk things through. I admit, as a teenager, it was not a happy thing because I was just interested in girls, football, and theater. Oh well!

I went to Hardin-Simmons University and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary Education: Drama and Speech and became certified to teach the learning disabled. While teaching special education (for six years), I discovered that many of these children came from families that needed help. So I departed Abilene, headed for San Antonio and Our Lady of the Lake University where I earned a Master of Social Work. I came back to Abilene, became the Chief of Alcoholism Services for Abilene Regional Mental Health-Mental Retardation Center. I then became Chief of Mental Health Services and worked for ARMH-MRC for ten years before starting a private practice of psychotherapy in 1988.

In 1992, while maintaining a private psychotherapy practice, I was called into the ministry to minister to those bound by mental challenges and bridge the gap between psychotherapy and faith. My wife and I began a ministry, Fulness of God Ministries, which later became Church of the Fulness of God.

While jogging around the track one morning in 1995, in the best physical shape I had been in many years, I had a medical event that changed my life. I lost my vision, among other unpleasant things, and ended up in the hospital. The final diagnosis was a rare form of cancer for which they had no real treatment for at that time. I ended up having to close my psychotherapy practice in 1998 and was limited in my ability to work. In about 2010, I became one of the thousands called “disabled.”

September 2013 came with me in the hospital – again! However, I was given a new doctor, a new diagnosis, and a new hope. Today, I am working full time – full time! Why did I tell you all of that? To let you know that I know about life and the curve balls it can throw at you.

We all have challenges; and what I have to share, besides all the therapeutic knowledge I have learned, is about living with and through adversity – continuing to hope when it appears that all hope is lost. I do know some things that the knowing of which can make a difference in your life and bring a totally different vision of a future worth living in.

Let me assist you in living this life of possibility that is your life – Today!
