Under the Supervision of Jeremy Pierce, MA, LPC-S, LMFT-S
Ken grew up in a military family, moving frequently throughout his youth, until finally settling in Texas when his father retired from the service in 1982. He attended Texas Christian University where he received his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. After graduation, Ken married his high school sweetheart, worked in Dallas for an investment firm for a few years, went on receive a Master’s degree from the University of California at Berkeley, and subsequently returned to Dallas to work in investment banking and private equity finance in the late 1990’s.
Ken understands firsthand how difficult it is to seek and ask for help, and also how beneficial counseling and therapy can be for restoring relationships and individual mental health. After more than a decade building his career Ken began to feel restless and dissatisfied. It was in these years that Ken started to notice his anxious thoughts and compulsive behaviors began to disrupt his daily life, despite an outward appearance of normalcy. Additionally, Ken’s home life was under pressure as his wife and one of his children were diagnosed with various unexpected and misunderstood medical conditions. Through his own experience of seeking help through counseling and therapy, Ken discovered a passion for helping others who found themselves lost, suffering, and feeling hopeless.
Ken received his Master of Counseling degree from Dallas Baptist University in 2016 and has been counseling individuals and families ever since. Ken is currently an LPC- Intern, working with adolescents, their families, couples, and men of all ages to address a variety of struggles and issues. Ken prefers to include the family in the process of counseling and therapy to the maximum extent possible, as he has found that family support and accountability are vital to healing. His aim is to provide a safe environment in which clients can process their feelings and conflicts while identifying personal, spiritual, and relational resources that will help them move closer to the person they were created to be. Ken’s philosophy of life is simple: Every day is a gift – embrace and enjoy the process of living; the destination is the reward.
Ken has lived in Grapevine-Colleyville since 1997 with his wife, two teenage sons, and their rescue dog. When not counseling, Ken enjoys drinking good coffee, reading NYT bestseller-list novels, and playing board and card games.
