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!

Donnie is an answered prayer. I’ve really needed insight and prayer from a male voice who understands my faith and who is able to advise (especially regarding my relationship) from a non biased point of view. Weve only had one session as of this review but so much of what he shared even in that one session has helped me to see and acknowledge things to lead to an overall healthier relationship and self.
Even though I just started with Donnie, I can tell he knows his stuff. He acts with respect and talk to me in a way that makes me feel that I can trust him. I am likely to continue with him.
Donnie is a caring, patient, outgoing and understanding Christian counselor. He makes me feel comfortable sharing my thoughts and feelings. He helps me look outside my circumstances, and to Jesus for comfort, strength and courage. I'm thankful for the opportunity, to be counseled by Donnie. God is working through His life to greatly impact the lives of others!
I honestly could not have asked for a better counselor for my first time seeking help. Donnie creates a gentle, accepting, and loving atmosphere where one feels comfortable sharing without condemnation or shame. Donnie is personally invested in helping you, and it shows in everything he does. I would highly recommend him
I love working with Donnie!
I admit my husband and I were very skeptical about counseling and I’m so grateful we took that leap of faith and delved into learning how to resurrect our marriage. Our marriage was on its last lifeline before we started counseling and my spouse and I weren’t even on speaking terms and Donnie provided us honest truth and homework to make our marriage work & thrive. As a result, in the time span we have utilized his counseling we have truly enjoyed our marriage & one another and desire to utilize the principles of The Lord in our marriage. Donnie we can’t thank you enough!
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.
