My name is Dolores Guilliod and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I earned my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Connecticut in Storrs, Connecticut, and my Master's degree in Professional Counseling from Amberton University in Garland, Texas. Presently I am in private practice with Christian Counseling Associates.
My Counseling Approach:
My approach is an eclectic one in which I utilize facets of restoration therapy, and cognitive behavior therapy as instruments of change. With the many psychological approaches available, I understand and hold to the position, that true healing and wholeness comes from the power of the Lord Jesus Christ. My Christ-centered approach relies upon the infallible Word of God and the power of prayer to surpass the limitations of man. The foundational scripture for my counseling practice is I Corinthians 3:6-7: "I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that plants anything, neither he that waters; but God that gives the increase." Only with your permission will scripture and prayer be incorporated into the counseling session.
My Counseling Specialties:
I am a member of American Associates of Christian Counselors and Christian Counselors of Texas, and am certified as a Level I Restoration Therapist. As a "hands on" counselor I have conducted home assessments on behalf of children who have been removed from their home due to abuse and neglect. I also facilitate a grief group at my home church for individuals who have experienced the death of a loved one. I am also available for private companies and businesses to conduct crisis grief counseling at their employment site. Presently in my practice, I provide counseling services for adult males and females, adolescents, premarital couples, and married couples who are experiencing the following issues:
- Married couples seeking healing from infidelity/adultery
- Grief and Loss
- Sexual Abuse
- Emotional & Physical Abuse
- Marriage Discord
- Pre-Marital Counseling
My Professional History:
As a retiree from the State and County Juvenile Justice Systems, I have worked with troubled youth and their families for over twenty five years. In addition I have conducted home assessments for families who were seeking to adopt or provide foster care for youth, and home assessments for children who have been removed from their home by CPS, due to abuse and neglect. I have worked with youth sports for over twenty years as both coach and administrator. My wide range of professional experience has allowed me to work with a diversity of populations. This experience has served to deepen my level of compassion and understanding towards my clients.
God has blessed me with a heart for the hurting adult and adolescent, and a burden for the family. I look forward to working with you and walking with you on your journey towards change.
