Stay The Course

I do not play golf anymore...unfortunately. It has become too expensive for my budget. But as a young person I use to play ever summer at our local public courses in Shreveport and Bossier City. These were not gorgeous courses like the ones you see the pros play on but I had fun playing, none… Continue reading Stay The Course


From One Course To Another

Man I so wanted my dad to spend time with me growing up. So I took up hunting, fishing and even golf to be able to spend time with him.

Focal Point

Everyone takes pictures now-a-days, whether it is with a camera, tablet or phone. And it doesn’t matter what the subject matter is, in the photo, there is always a focal point. Using myself as an example, here for a minute, when I take a photo the subject is always in the center of the photo.… Continue reading Focal Point

Forest's Path

When I recently wrote about my promotion to Clinical Director and the career journey that led me to this work I love to do, I omitted a significant piece of my history. We all have a back-story. It is ours to hold or to share. I would like to show you a snapshot of mine. I reserve the intimate details for the handful of trusted individuals in my “inner circle.” But I believe that what follows will enrich the lives of others, so I am honored to give this gift to those who can benefit.

The reality is that I have studied sexual addiction much longer than the 9 years of my graduate and post-graduate work.

A Father’s Prayer For His Daughter

The journey into fatherhood is a unique experience. One that I was truly not prepared for yet one I treasure and do not take lightly. A journey that is also very scary but oh so rewarding.
