He received these licenses after obtaining his Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. He obtained his Bachelors of Science in Psychology with a Minor in Philosophy from Brigham Young University-Idaho.
His experience at juvenile corrections facilities, residential treatment centers, and working in a Family Therapy Clinic have guided him to appreciate the struggle of adolescence. He has worked with adolescents and families who were caught up in the throes of substance abuse, severe mental disorders, trauma, depression, anxiety, and anger.
He was the Director of the Adolescent Intensive Outpatient and Partial Hospitalization Programs (IOP/PHP) at New Dimensions Day Treatment in The Woodlands, TX. He regularly provided individual therapy, and facilitated peer and multi-family groups.
Adam identifies himself as an educator helping his clients live by the principles of love, honesty, spirituality, accountability, trust, and forgiveness as central to a recovery lifestyle.
Outside of his educational experience, Adam’s life experiences (including being a father of 3 girls and a husband to a beautiful, creative, intelligent, and fun loving wife) have led him to develop great care and concern for the precious and powerful connection between parents and their children.
Adam enjoys singing, song writing, playing guitar and piano, engaging in spiritual activities, and studying philosophy. He enjoys spending time playing with and educating his daughters. He loves being in nature, goofing off, appreciating fast cars, and spending as much time as he can with his wife and kids.
