About Me

Greetings. I want to congratulate you on taking the first step towards recovery. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Texas. I am also a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC), with certifications in Mental Health Teletherapy (CTMH), and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP).
Every journey needs a guide. On your journey to recovery, I walk with you to help guide you to a better understanding of where you have been and where you want to go. I believe in the therapeutic relationship and the power of that relationship can help affect change. While I approach counseling from a wide array of approaches, such as humanistic, psychodynamic, and cognitive-behavioral, my approach is tailored to what you need and what will serve you the best.
I believe that effective change and effective therapy takes time. It takes a willingness to explore the past, consider the present, and change the future for the better. You have taken the first step on that path to a better future and I commend you on that bold action. I am ready to work with you and walk the path with you. I wish you a happy and healthy recovery.

Dennis is insightful, patient and very attentive to my concerns. He offers practical and applicable guidance for me to improve my relationships and my outlook on life. I would recommend him if you need to shift your mindset to be more positive and break unhealthy thought patterns.

Dennis (Doctor Steelman?) is the best counselor I've found on this website. He makes me formulate my ideas in a way that often makes me question my underlying behaviors and beliefs, and I feel that my life is on an upward trajectory since I started speaking with him.

Dennis is truly great and I would want to have him as a friend if he were not my counselor. Practical, compassionate, humorous.

My weekly counseling sessions with Dennis have helped me immensely during a very difficult time in my life. I have learnt something new during every session about how to tackle the challenges that I am facing. He is extremely patient and gently guides you to the root of the problem by reasoning with you and challenging you with the right questions. I greatly appreciate these sessions.

I’m really, really happy to have been connected with Dennis. I’ve been able to find and address several issues that I hadn’t been able to identify myself. With Dennis’ kind, patient, and insightful advice I feel more able to address my faults and poor behavior. For the first time in a long, long time I feel hope for my future and the future of my personal relationships.
