My purpose in life is to live with a thankful heart each day by helping everyone I meet feel like worthwhile, valued individuals.

I am a retired professor of pastoral counseling at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne where I also served as Vice President and Dean of Students.  For nearly 25 years I taught a number of classes in marriage counseling, premarital counseling, family counseling, crisis counseling, and more.

I began my career as a high school teacher.  I taught business and Bible classes, and was an assistant principal, athletic director, and head varsity football and basketball coach.

I have a successful counseling practice and am passionate about helping individuals, couples, parents, and families enjoy satisfying personal lives and relationships.  Within Christian circles, I am a popular relationship speaker and audiences enjoy my influential style of encouraging and guiding individuals, couples, parents, and relationships to succeed.

I earned a Bachelor of Science from Concordia University Chicago, and received a Master’s of Education in Administration from Wayne State University in Detroit.  I also earned a Master of Divinity from Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and hold a Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy from The Chicago Theological Seminary.

My wife and I have been happily married for over 40 years and have two married sons, along with six grandchildren.


Thank you for helping us save our marriage and family! Without your help, our little angel would have never been born.
