Mark D. Krynski, MA, LPC, BCPCC
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Texas. I received my Master’s in Professional Counseling from Liberty University in Lynchburg, V.A. Before opening Katharos Counseling I worked with the State of Texas Juvenile Justice Department as a Health Care Professional/Case Manager. I am an active member of the American Association of Christian Counselor with the accreditation of a Board Certified Professional Christian Counselor.
Prior to counseling, my wife and I developed and operated a computer software company. I received a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from the University of Utah. The company grew to a state wide organization with installations throughout the State of Texas. After 20 years we decided to sell our business and pursue a calling to help others full time.
Prior to professional counseling I was active working with at-risk teens, men and families. As a Sunday school teacher and Small Team leader my passion to help others grew. My first exposure to leading in ministry involved coordinated an after school apartment ministry. With that experience I developed a mentorship program for the Texas Juvenile Justice Department where I also completed my internship.
I specialize in helping people realize their identity, potential and goals. As a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist the battle is in the mind. Learning to recognize our thought patterns and accepting them simply as thoughts and not necessarily truth is a primary goal for treatment. My practice focuses on mood disorders, anxiety disorders, addictions, impulse control, motivation and relationship issues.
My specific areas of training include; Christian Worldview, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness and Trauma Processing (Simple and Complex). I am in a trained group facilitator for Pure Desires Conquer and 7-Pillars groups.
On a personal note I have been blessed to have 35 years of marriage to the same beautiful women and my best friend. We are the proud parents of three wonderful children and one grandchild.
I strive to deliver Truth with the science of good therapy.
