Getting to know Calvin

Calvin grew up right here in Dallas in the Lake Highlands area. When he was younger he was very shy which fueled his passion for technology and gaming. It was not until high school that he came out of his bubble and joined the schools band along with the country western dance team. He loves to go two-stepping with his wife, exercise, Netflix, eating Italian food, or relaxing with friends.                    

The desire to become a counselor started at an early age for Calvin. The interest sparked when he could see the incredible change it was making in his own life. While struggling with anger, fear, sadness, and family issues he was unable to handle all that life had thrown his way. Throughout the counseling process he began to see change in his self-esteem, interactions with others, anger, and his sadness. Despite the hard times that are surely to come, Calvin believes and can testify to how counseling has made a positive influence on his life. 

Calvin went to Texas Tech University in Lubbock Texas and achieved a BA in Psychology and a minor in Human Development and Family Studies. After graduating Calvin returned home to Dallas Texas and finished his Master's in counseling at Dallas Theological Seminary.

style & Approach

When working with clients, Calvin looks at the whole person. He believes an individual’s family of origin and the early life messages they received growing up have a powerful impact on how they operate and see the world around them. With clients, he works to uncover how these messages play a large role in many of the issues they are struggling with and help them to create a new story for themselves where they are the author of their lives. He will help clients have a more comprehensive understanding of themselves by looking through their past experiences. He believes struggles and conflict are opportunities for growth and as a counselor will provide opportunities to dig deeper into the meaning behind those issues in order for clients to be equipped to move forward in their growth process.
