About Me

I am a Licensed Psychologist (Oklahoma #1118) and have both a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and a  Masters  in Forensic Psychology, from the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Professional Psychology (GSPP).
I attended Oklahoma Baptist University (OBU) for my undergraduate degree with majors in psychology and sociology. I was raised in Tulsa, OK and have family in the area (in fact, if you pay attention, you may notice similar names at CFI). I attended graduate school in Denver and loved living nearby to the mountains and outdoor activities.
I currently reside in Tulsa, Oklahoma where my wife and I have two children.  We are part of a faith community called Rivendell Fellowship.

I genuinely appreciate the opportunity to meet people in the context of therapy because it gives me a privileged chance to share in people’s lives. I believe that everyone can benefit from therapy as a source of support and encouragement as we go through change. I believe that we all want to be heard and understood. Since positive relationships are such a key component in the overall health of a person, therapy offers a place to become better at engaging in relationships with others. The model of counseling at Christian Family Institute, where I am currently an associate, encourages couples and families to attend therapy together so that more players in the system can benefit from the process. I also perform psychological evaluations for a variety of issues: child and adult ADHD, learning disability screenings, psycheducational evaluations,  forensic evaluations (answering specific questions for attorneys or courts), personality evaluation, cognitive evaluation, Social Security Disability consultative examinations, diagnostic evaluations.
