Dr. Donald Schuman


About Me

I am a Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), licensed in the state of Texas. I am also a Texas supervisor for candidates working toward their LCSW. In addition, I hold a Texas state license as a Chemical Dependency Counselor. I have extensive experience with active-duty military, veterans, and their families. I also have extensive experience with substance use and substance misuse issues.

My therapeutic approach is to focus on both psychodynamic as well as behavioral concerns.

Behavioral approaches are usually shorter-term and address behavior and thought patterns. Psychodynamic approaches consider personality and family history so as to address the possible underlying causes of your concerns.

I employ an integrative approach where I may blend different but complimentary theories in order to work with you in the most effective way. This flexible approach enables us to tailor the counseling experience to your individual needs and style. I do not think that any one theory works for everyone, so I think it is helpful for us to be flexible enough to switch to another approach if our preferred one is not working.

I’m a tough nut to crack but dr Schuman is working hard to figure me out. He’s had some pretty solid insight on a few of my issues and I’m interested in seeing where this goes.

I have enjoyed working with Dr. Schuman on my therapy journey! He provides great advice, insights and listens and hears my needs even when I myself am unsure about what those needs are. Thank you Dr. Schuman!

I really enjoy talking with Dr Schuman. He is helping me get to the root of some of the reasons why I experience anxiety and feelings of frustration. He is a wonderful therapist.
