About Me

Hello! My name is Patrick. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist in both Georgia and Texas. I’ve been in the counseling field for over 20 years and have spent time with people on a wide range of problems including self-esteem, building relationships, conflict resolution, infidelity, adjustment, depression, anxiety and more. Regardless of the issue(s), as Christians, we have confidences to depend on regarding who we are because of Christ, our relationship with God, and trust in Him to help us sort things out.

Certainly, we pray for help in doing so; we can expect that help. Thankfully, we also are required to put forth effort. That is what we see throughout the Biblical record, people exercising their faith despite everything. In like manner, we also get to exercise our faith by confronting the issues we face with those confidences and trust in Him.

I am not a pastor so it is only wise to check our conclusions with your pastor. Acknowledging it is the Lord who does the actual changing, I’ll be happy to address your concerns from this perspective, whether individually or as part of a couple

Written by S.H. on Oct 12, 2021 after therapy with Patrick for 3 weeks

We love how Patrick is kind, resourceful, approachable and how he shared with us with the word of God. His advice were useful and his constant reminder of how we could transform our mind and be better version of ourselves is priceless. Would def recommend him to anyone who needs help or just someone to talk to. His reassuring and calming presence allows one to enjoy speaking and receiving from him. Thanks for everything!

I've only completed a couple of sessions in counseling with Patrick as my counselor, but can confidently say that he is an attentive listener, as well as discerning of the needs at hand. His expertise is beneficial and guiding through times of uncertainty and confusing experiences. I would recommend Patrick as a counselor in times when Biblical guidance is needed.
