He also specializes in the aging population, dementia, the sandwich generation, caring for caregivers, and professional men successful in their work but struggling at home.

Harry was born in Dallas several years ago and, ever the adventurer, he’s still there!  While he has stayed close to home Harry enjoys travel to new places as well as visiting his many family members and friends dispersed around the country. Harry is a Christian and his faith is a foundational part of his life having been active in church and ministry throughout his life. His faith and love for others is an important part in his counseling.  Harry is a family man and spends much of his time visiting and enjoying time with his children and grandchildren whenever he can.  He also enjoys sports both as a fan and playing himself.  Although he is not as active as he once was, he will still jump in and compete when he gets a chance.   Music is a very important part of his life and he enjoys listening to live music, especially smaller local acts.  He also finds listening to music and making music of his own to be very therapeutic and comforting.  Harry loves people and his extensive experience and eclectic interests help him connect with his clients.
