I am a Dallas native. I graduated with honors from University of Dallas. I have been a therapist since 1978, and in private practice since 1983. I have worked with parolees in half-way houses, addiction centers, public mental health and psychiatric hospitals. Prior to entering graduate school, I worked in the Adolescent Unit at Terrell State Hospital. My exposure to clients has been wide, and deep.
I also do considerable coaching and consulting work with the business community, advising on matters of leadership, peer and client relations, and business development.
In all my work, my effort is to create the most direct, person to person relationships, and as much as possible avoid the use of boilerplate and ready made, easy to hand formulations that obscure rather than enhance authentic understanding.
