My Info

 

I have been working in the mental health field for thirty years, since 1983, and in private practice since 1990.

I have been a Licensed, Ordained Minister since 1980, and a Licensed Professional Counselor since 1988. I am a supervisor of LPC interns.

I have been married since 1970 to Lynn [Powell] Graham. We have three adult sons, Marty, Brad [deceased] and John David, and three grandchildren that we spend as much time as possible with.  In addition to my counseling practice and her job at Northlake Christian School, Lynn and I are co-ministers of music at Grace Baptist Church, Holiday Road, Folsom.

I have written a devotional book entitled "The Blossoming of the Soul: Devotionals From the Heart of a Christian Counselor"  It is available from me for $15 or through Amazon.com.

I especially enjoy working with couples, but have experience across the spectrum of spiritual/mental/emotional issues.

I see clients Mon.-Fri. 8am-7pm and Sat. 9-12.
