Counseling Associates

Cynthia R. Carter M.S., LPC, LMFT is pleased to offer therapeutic counseling services by Licensed Professional Counselor Interns and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associates at a reduced fee rate.  Our counselors and therapists are licensed by the Texas State Board of Examiners and are directly supervised by Cynthia R. Carter M.S., LPC-S, LMFT-S. 

Are Licensed Professional Counselor Interns and Marriage and Family Therapy Associates experienced enough to service your problems?  Yes, absolutely!  That is why they were granted licenses to practice psychotherapy by the Texas State Board of Examiners.  Our business associates are NOT students- but rather professionals who are working towards independent licensure... and... who have already completed a minimum of 300 direct hours with clients prior to obtaining their current license.  

Our business affiliates are competent professionals who bring innovative approaches to working with children, adolescents and adults.  I have personally chosen to work with each of them due to the wisdom, compassion and unique experiences that they bring. 

Therapeutic counseling services are available to individuals, families and couples.  Please review each of their individual bios below for more information about their specialties.
