My name is Donnie and I have 10 years experience as a Christian Counselor in Texas. I am a licensed and ordained minister, Licensed Professional Counselor, and a National Certified Counselor. I enter every session with a non-judgmental approach and with the goal to help you to reach your goals. The reality is: Life is hard and Satan is out to destroy individuals and families. We cannot overcome Satan and Sin by ourselves. While I understand that there are certain disorders and diagnosis that require medications and specialty treatments, I also believe that many of the struggles that we have are Spiritually based. The issues that we struggle with may be because of our own sin or we may be the victim of someone else's sin, yet we are carrying the burden. Linking Scripture, God's Love/Mercy/Discipline, and our needs into a therapeutic session is important for our relational growth with Him.
I have experience working with people ages 5 - 85. My career has provided me the opportunity to work in schools, correctional facilities, non- profit organizations, churches and homeless shelters. I enjoy working with people from any and every background on issues that include, but are not limited to: Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Relationships, Pre-Marriage, Marriage, Spiritual, Career, Anger Management, Grief and Addictions. These experiences have fanned the flame of passion that I have for working with all populations of people.
While clients may enter counseling unsure of what to expect, nervous, or even being "voluntold" to participate, I strive to be personable, open minded, and encouraging. I fully understand that opening up about feelings, emotions, thoughts, experiences, and desires is not always easy. Many times, putting in the work to address changes in life that need to happen in order to become healthier on a multitude of levels, isn't easy. However, I am here to come alongside you to assist you with this journey.
I look forward to working with you!

This has been an incredible experience already. The convenience of the app as well as the true expertise of the counselor is really unbelievable. I feel very comfortable and heard. I have already recommended this to a few other people. Thank you
Donnie was able to listen and assess my needs and identify a clear plan of action for improvement in a very short of time. The online portal and his responses allowed us to maximize our time spent. I would highly recommend him.
