I’m a psychologist in private practice in Austin, Texas.

I became a Christian when I was young and have been on that spiritual journey ever since…

I’ve been married to my wife, Holly, for over forty years, and we are the proud parents of three amazing adult children. Beyond that, we are the proud grandparents of four super-awesome grandkids who we think hung the moon.

I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to write self-help books over the years, including The Lies We Believe (30th Anniversary Edition). The idea for writing Pop’s Advice came from feeling nudged by God to write something for my grandkids that might benefit them long after I’m gone.

Writing Pop’s Advice has been enjoyable beyond what I could have ever hoped for or imagined. I feel blessed that God would give me the opportunity to pass along the things I’ve learned in my almost seventy years on this planet about how to live an emotionally, relationally, and spiritually health life. I pray that what I offer to my grandkids in Pop’s Advice will be helpful to you, your kids, and your grandkids as well.

I’m crazy about my grandkids. Nothing has brought me more joy and happiness than them being here and being alongside as they grow up. The Bible was right, as it always is, to say “Children’s children are a crown to the aged” (Proverbs 17:6).

Anything we can do to look out for these precious gifts is a great blessing.

I’m so glad you’ve landed here. I look forward to sharing and connecting with you!

Chris (a.k.a. Pop)
