Mike was born and raised in Fort Worth. He attended Texas Wesleyan University and received an undergraduate degree in Information Technology. Mike committed himself to a Christ-centered residential treatment facility at age 28. It was there that he had an encounter with God that changed the trajectory of his life. It was also there that Mike met Austin Davis, one of the LPC’s on staff. Two years after treatment, Mike got the opportunity to go back to work for the treatment center that he attended, under Austin’s leadership. It was during his employment there that Mike felt God calling him to equip himself to help others and Mike began pursuing a Masters in Counseling from B.H. Carroll Theological Institute. After finishing grad school, Mike pursued an opportunity to work with Austin again at Clearfork Academy. Mike has served as Recovery Coach at Clearfork Residential and is currently a therapist at Clearfork Intensive Outpatient Program in Fort Worth. It is Mike’s belief that finding one’s identity is central to recovery from substance use and he finds that identity in Jesus Christ. Mike’s faith has been the cornerstone of his recovery and he is excited to be able to share this faith with others who are struggling. Mike is married to his wife Jessica and they have one son, Raylan.
