Hello World! (Or at least all those reading interested in Christian mental health counseling). My name is Tom and I’m passionate about helping people be more alive. I see that life ultimately comes from a relationship with Christ and his Church. I also know that many people have psychological obstacles that are blocks and barriers to encounter Christ and living a full life. That is why I am passionate about counseling as a means to healing and breaking down those barriers to a full life.
God has brought me through many steps on this path taking me from the great state of Kansas to the Ohio Valley. I studied history and international relations, got Masters in geography, I worked for government intelligence, I spent four years in seminary, and I’ve helped find sponsors for kids in developing countries through the Unbound ministry.
I love beauty in people and nature and literature. So you can find me outdoors with a great novel or a book of poetry. I miss the rolling Flint Hills of Kansas, our wide open skies, Kansas City BBQ and baseball and Jayhawk basketball. I’m blessed to have encountered Christ in a real way that has changed my life and I want others to have that too!
I grew up number three in a family of seven children. My parents met as students at Franciscan, married, and never left. I’ve always thought of myself as a ‘traditional Catholic”—no hand-raising, speaking in tongues, etc. All that was somewhat foreign, even though, as kids, we saw a great deal of charismatic worship on campus.Details
