Not Licensed Professional Counselors

Donald Moon

Director of Operations & Counselor

Since 2000, I’ve been working as a Certified Counselor who specializes in helping people cope with their issues. My counseling encourages clients to utilize both their heads and their hearts when it comes to dealing with everyday issues. I first learned about counseling when I struggled to move past a roadblock in my own life. The techniques I developed were so successful that friends and family began asking me for help with their challenges. This motivated me to turn my newfound passion into a full-time ministry.  I spend the bulk of my time as the Director of Operations and counseling leaders in the church, community, and those around the world serving as missionaries.

Johnna Sandor, ms

Director of Administration

I grew up in southern California, but please don’t hold that against me. I got here as soon as I could and I didn’t bring anything with me! The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful husband and 2 great kids. I graduated from Westmont College with a BA in Liberal studies and went on to get my teaching credential and Master of Science from National University. After teaching elementary, preschool, and working with kids in therapeutic foster care, we were able to start our family. I was then able to stay at home to raise our children. I have always been involved in women’s ministry, Bible study, and teaching Sunday School. With administration as one of my Spiritual Gifts, I feel privileged to be able to serve the Counseling Center in that area.

Mollie Laqua

Children’s Counselor

I am so excited to be a part of CV Biblical. I come from a background of sign language interpretation and was a special education teacher for SAISD for many years. I felt a strong calling to do the part of my job I always loved best which was listening and working to help kids handle their challenges. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Education from Angelo State, finished my degree in Biblical Counseling, and am now pursuing a Masters from Liberty University. I am married to an awesome guy. We have four precious children who are all teachers too. In addition, we have three beautiful grandchildren. God is allowing me to fulfill my dream and passion by helping those who are hurting and encourage them to turn their focus to Him! He is our hope!

Lou McLemore

Counselor

I grew up in Germany and moved to Texas in 1991. I am married to my best friend, Mack.  We have four sons and nine grandchildren. I started as a volunteer at the Pregnancy Help Center of the Concho Valley in 2010. Ever since then, God has been leading me down the path of post-abortion counseling and biblical counseling. Now I am a Certified Life Coach and a Certified Biblical Counselor. God opened the door to work at CV Biblical Counseling in 2019. My heart has always been for the post-abortive woman and now I counsel women who are broken for other reasons as well. I also counsel couples through pre-marital and marriage counseling. I love to see God break the chains of intimidation, fear, guilt, and shame in women who have been harmed by abortion and other negative experiences. My favorite scripture is Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God.

Counselor

I am so excited to be on the team at CV Biblical Counseling. It is an answer to my prayer to God to put me where He wants to use me at this time. I am a mother to my daughter and a grandmother of three. After attending the school of hard knocks, I felt God’s leading me through 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 which says, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Mercies and the God of All Comfort, who comforts us in our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the same comfort.” I have received certification for Biblical counseling through the American Association of Christian Counselors and want to help others process through brokenness and find hope. 

Claudia Meza

Bilingual Counselor

Nací y crecí en West TX. En 1991, me gradué de ASU, pero durante los últimos cuarenta años, he servido a otros a través de negocios y marketing, a partir de la edad de once años. Mis mayores bendiciones son mi hija, mi hijo y mi nieta. Una vez me lastimé y me rompieron con muchos dolores  y problemas de este mundo, pero ahora he llegado a un círculo completo. Mi hijo y yo tenemos una vida activa en la iglesia en Immanuel Baptist. Soy un amante de Jesús y he encontrado mi verdadera identidad en Él… psst, soy una hija del REY y ahora me toca a mí devolver. Quiero caminar a tu lado mientras estás lastimado. Necesitas saber que el poder sanador de Jesucristo es un gozo inexplicable. Es mi oración que me permitas consolarlos con esperanza y libertad que sólo se encuentran en el Señor. Juntos, encontremos a la persona que Dios te ha diseñado para ser.

“Considéralo pura alegría, hermanos y hermanas, cada vez que te enfrentes a pruebas de muchos tipos, porque sabes que la prueba de tu fe produce perseverancia. Deja que la perseverancia termine su trabajo para que seas maduro y completo, sin faltar nada.”  -Santiago 1:2-4

 

I was born and raised in West TX. In 1991, I graduated from ASU and for the last forty years, I have served others through business and marketing, starting at the age of eleven. My biggest blessings are my daughter, son, and granddaughter. I was once hurt and broken with many heartaches and problems of this world, but now I have come full circle. My son and I have an active church life at Immanuel Baptist. I am a lover of Jesus and have found my real identity in Him … psst, I am a daughter of the KING and now it is my turn to give back. I want to walk beside you as you are hurting. You need to know that the healing power of Jesus Christ is an unexplainable joy. It is my prayer that you would allow me to comfort you with hope and freedom found only in the Lord. Together, let’s find the person God has designed you to be.

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”  -James 1:2-4

 

Debra & Steve Lawhone

Marriage Counselors 

We have been walking together with the Lord Jesus Christ for over twenty years. In 2021, we were married for thirty. For the first twelve years, we did marriage our way and were headed directly to divorce lawyers. Someone who loved us very much convinced us to give our marriage to God. And we did! Since then, our life together has been beautiful because we have allowed God to lead us. He then led us to facilitate marriage classes, speak at retreats, and counsel truly hurting husbands and wives. Later, He led us to become licensed ministers. We now have four adult children, nine beautiful grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. We are so excited that the Lord has assigned and anointed us to help hurting marriages through Biblical counseling. We want to get in the trenches with you and equip you with the Word, so you are able to get out and stay out of the hurt. We could not have succeeded so sweetly on our own if God hadn’t sent us help all those years ago. Now it’s your turn to accept His help, through us.

 

erica tribolet

Financial Coach & Counselor

Born and raised in Texas, my blessings include being a wife to an amazingly patient husband and a mom to 2 humans and 3 dogs. Needless to say, my life is never boring and my house is never clean. I’ve recently been in a period of self-development and waiting. Wanting to be more involved in my church, do God’s work, and better control our family’s finances, I was led to join, and then help coordinate, Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University. Because I liked their system so much, I went on to pursue further training as a Financial Coach Master through Ramsey Solutions. Since then God has blessed my family and me while also opening my eyes and heart to my true purpose. I want to walk with others so they can experience the hope, peace, and freedom having a financial plan that works can bring to their lives. Being better stewards of the money God has allowed us to earn opens the door for us to live His true purpose for us! I would love to start a journey toward financial peace with you!

Sean Mullin

Counselor

Having been born and raised in South Africa, I came to San Angelo in 1981. I was saved in 1982 at First Baptist, met my wife Gena, and we were married in 1983. We have two children and two grandchildren. I have a diploma in Telecommunications Maintenance, and I have a BA in Theology. Gena and I served in Africa as missionaries for the past 26 years with two different mission organizations. The first was Jesus Alive Ministries where I served as a pilot, flight engineer, and mechanic flying throughout Africa supplying missionaries, orphanages, and programs feeding children. I then moved to Samaria Mission, where I was in a leadership role and supervised short-term mission trips into Mozambique. I was also involved in evangelism, church planting, church leadership, church development, and water well drilling. Gena and I have since returned to serve our community here in Texas however God would direct us. Because I have a heart for counseling, I am excited to be a part of the staff at CV Biblical Counseling Center.

Kristie Crisp, M. Div.

Counselor

Born and raised in South Texas, we moved to San Angelo in the summer of 2020. I am married to my high school sweetheart, and we celebrated our thirtieth anniversary in 2022. We have been blessed with two daughters and one grandson. 

I have been called into ministry for almost the past twenty years. My heart is to lead people to the healing and saving grace of Jesus Christ. I earned my BA in Pastoral Ministry from Southwestern College and my Master of Divinity from United Theological Seminary. It is a privilege for me to pastor a new church plant called “New Beginnings.” God recently opened the door for me to continue learning how to minister to hurting individuals through counseling by becoming a Certified Biblical Counselor. It is a joy for me to serve our community as a counselor at CV Biblical.

Christopher medina

Counseling Intern

For twenty years I ran from God’s calling on my life but am now learning how God doesn’t waste anything. Through the fire, I continue to be purified for His ultimate purpose. My life experiences have led me to be able to relate and identify with those in treacherous areas of life.

In surrendering to God, doors have flown open in my life. I am an alumnus of the Journey Recovery Center, an ordained chaplain, operated street ministry, lead Christ-centered recovery groups, and now have been certified as a Biblical Counselor through the American Association of Christian Counselors.

This Biblical counseling opportunity is a divine answer to a lifelong prayer because restoring one’s identity in Christ is vital to the restoration of one’s brokenness in this life. I’m living proof and am so grateful to let my experience and testimony inspire hope and encourage others’ faith.

If we are unfaithful, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny who He is.”                            2 Timothy 2:13 

Megan McCracken

Administrative Consultant

Sometimes your life changes when you least expect it, and you know it’s ALL GOD. After years of working in education and business, I am excited to be on a new journey at CV Biblical!

I was raised in Graham, TX, and came to San Angelo for college. I never finished my degree, so 25 years later, I am again a full-time student at ASU, finishing a Bachelor of Psychology degree and working in administration at the Counseling Center with plans to move into Biblical counseling in a few years.

My favorite titles in life are “Dog Mama” and “Aunt Meg.” I love to play handbells, teach children’s Sunday School, read, and listen to music.
