My background is a bit of winding road, but one that I believe was divinely guided by God. My early background was in youth ministry with undergraduate majors in Biblical studies and psychology from Evangel University (Springfield, MO). This evolved into a focus on counseling and masters degrees in general and clinical psychology, and eventually LPC licensure. Finally, I pursued a doctorate in educational psychology at Texas A&M University, and this led to my current research and teaching focus on methodology. I'm married to an incredible woman and have two awesome kids. In my spare time, I enjoy outdoor activities and being involved at New Life Church in Denton. And I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors, #15495).
