About Dean

I started Wisdom Professional Counseling in 2012 to provide excellent counseling for adults, couples, teens and children going through difficult times in their lives. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S) in Texas and a Registered Play Therapist.  I have two master’s degrees from top schools in counseling and theology. I was in the banking and consulting industry for about 20 years before starting this second career in counseling so I am very familiar with workplace stresses and job transition, work/family balance, and handling work relationships.  I realized I wanted to work more with people and so left this to start a second career in counseling.  I love what I do and that’s helping people every day.

I see clients of all ages and half my practice is adults and couples and the other half are children.  I believe this gives me a lifespan perspective on problems to help clients understand how they got where they are and how to move forward.   One of the hallmarks of my approach is strengthening the relationships clients have with their loved ones: parents-children, spouses/parnters, families, and adult relationships.

Some of my past training and experience includes work in the fields of domestic violence and sexual abuse as an intern at the Children’s Advocacy Center for Denton County and Denton County Friends of the Family before opening my own practice.  I use a variety of therapy modalities including talk therapy, play therapy for children,  and Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples.

I am a proud girl-dad and am actively involved in my community and local church.  

We would love to talk with you.
