He is a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, a Nationally Board Certified Counselor, a clinical member of AAMFT, and an approved professional counseling supervisor.

Our Work Together

In 2010, we worked together to develop materials we used to train pastors, teachers, and mental health providers in Haiti after the devastating earthquake. David worked extensively for over a year in Haiti leading teams of professionals to conduct training in trauma care, equipping  the Haitians to provide the far-reaching services needed for their own people. 

The trauma resources we developed for Haiti have been translated into numerous languages and are now being used worldwide in such places as Rwanda, India, New Zealand, Romania, Dominican Republic, Cambodia, Vietnam, Costa Rica, and the Middle East.

In the wake of the Newtown, CT, Sandy Hook School shootings in 2012, we led teams to train pastors and community workers in how to best assist with the trauma and terrible loss. We returned on the anniversary of the shooting to continue to offer support, training, and guidance to the community as they processed their trauma and grief.  

For the past two years, David took the trauma materials to Rwanda to help survivors of the 1994 genocide.The materials are also used routinely in alcohol and drug treatment centers and juvenile detention centers, based on the understanding these issues are directly related to trauma. 

Whether it’s the enchanting realms of fictional allegory, the spellbinding landscapes of fantasy series, the time-honored tales of historical fiction, the sacred narratives of Biblical fiction, soul-enriching devotionals, whimsical children’s stories, or insightful professional trauma resources – in every word, on every page, our ultimate pursuit is to echo the sentiment of “doing it all for the glory of God” (I Corinthians 10:31).
