I am the proud father of five, ranging from a 2018 college-graduated beautiful young woman, to a 2020 born girl who is keeping me young. Thinking of each one of them makes me smile. I am originally from Ecuador and a lover and explorer of the riches of cultures.
The U.S. has become my home for almost two decades already. Julie, my wife, is the best part of me. We married in 2011 in a celebration of the faithfulness and grace of God in our lives. We live north of Houston in a spacious place that is reconnecting our family with the beauty and the adventure of nature, the blessing of community, and the hope of seeing our family join shared purpose for the sake of wholeness in every season.
I love nature, trees, the sky, and good stories. I love road trips with the family and dream of a season when we can engage in a long journey to visit the beautiful places that I’d like to see before I die. I love silence and I’m constantly trying to overcome the chronic distraction of my mind, so I can learn to be more present and discover the beauty of people and of God in everyone and everywhere. This learning has become the desire of my heart.
My passion is to discover the dynamics of psychology, spirituality, and behavior in the human soul. I do it while respecting the personal perspectives and preferences of my clients. I believe all human beings are constantly being formed and shaped by the experiences they live and by the quality of connection they experience with other human beings and with their own core values. I believe all human beings are wonderfully made and able to learn and grow, even if that requires some un-learning and re-learning. In this context, I have been serving in the teams of Faithwalking since 2007 as a coach and facilitator, Emmaus since 2020 as faculty member, Selah since 2021 as supervisor, and Daring Ventures since 2020 as a profesional counselor.
I work with adults and couples. I specialize in soul care, anxiety management, development of emotional maturity, grief, sexual addiction, and betrayal.
I am a Spiritual Director, a Biblical counselor, and a LPC practicing in the state of Texas. I am a DBT and APSATS MPTM Trained counselor and a CSAT certified therapist.
