Jeff is from Fort Worth, Texas. He is married with 2 little boys who surprise him every day. He received his Masters in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary, and he is always looking to further his education through experience, continuing education, and possibly attaining his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. The mission of Clearfork is something that is of personal significance to him as he celebrates 15 years sober in March of this year. He believes that a solid therapeutic approach, upheld and founded in Biblical truth, is the only way to make lasting change and truly lead young men to a new legacy. “An interesting fact about me is that I love working with my hands. That includes making hunting and camping knives, building houses for the poor in Mexico with my church, and creating rustic art.”
Under the Supervision of Austin Davis, LPC-S
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. 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.
