When Christ calls us, he bids us come and die...to go one's way under the sign of the cross is not misery and desperation, but peace and refreshment for the soul, it is the highest joy...we do not walk under our self-made laws and burdens, but under the yoke of him who knows us and walks under the yoke with us.
Michael T. McCloskey, M.A., LPC-SCounseling Intake
I do what I love. I meet with men, women, couples and groups to think deeply about the implications of a sometimes profoundly difficult and painful world on our ability to connect with one another more richly and to be more integrated to our design as God has created us. I see my work and my call as a great privilege - to walk with another human being through sorrow, hope and doubt - to think about life with another, to consider what is true and what has gone wrong in our lives more deeply connects us to what is real. Truly, to walk into the reality of life with another is a joy.
I grew up here in Texas, graduated with a degree in Architecture from Texas A&M, then switched gears completely, moving to Indiana for three years to pursue a Masters degree in Counseling, under the direction of Dr. Larry Crabb and Dr. Dan Allender, from Grace Theological Seminary, where I graduated in 1986. After an internship with Crabb and Allender, I moved my family back to Texas where I have been in private practice since 1987. I am married to the most exquisite woman in the world, Jeanenne, with whom I share my counseling practice. We have three grown children and three grandchildren although I am not nearly as old as that sounds. Ultimately, the work in which I engage I do so with passion, hope and an eye toward returning to what we know most deeply within us.
