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, a National Certified Counselor and a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor.  I have two master’s degrees from top schools in counseling and theology.

I see all ages of clients and about half my practice is adults and couples and the other half are children and teens with most of those being younger kids.  With adult clients this gives me a lifespan perspective on problems to help them understand how they got where they are and how to move forward.  With children it helps me enter into their world and encourage the right things both for them and their parents.  I was a consultant in the banking industry for about 20 years before starting this second career so I am very familiar with workplace stresses and job changes and see a number of male and female executives helping with issues related to working on teams, job transition, work/family life balance, and handling work relationships.

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

I am the proud father of four girls, one born to us and three adopted.  We are an active family and are strongly connected to our local church.  My favorite thing in the world is spending quality time with my daughters.  Some of my hobbies include training for Ironman races, reading, and cooking.

We would love to talk with you.
