I am a Mental Health Therapist. I have been working as a LPC for over 6 years and I have been a Christian Lay Counselor in the Dallas area for over 15 years. I have worked with individuals and groups with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issue, however my main area of support is dealing with Trauma and clients with PTSD. I have helped the Vets over the years to navigate through some of their trauma as well as many relationship issues caused by their trauma.
I have a warm, supportive, interactive and positive approach to therapy. I use the Cognitive Behavioral approach as well as other modalities for therapy in helping you to achieve your recovery goals. I use Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD and other trauma concerns.
It has been said, ”Put your hands in mine, and together we can accomplish what you could not do alone.”. I believe we all struggle from time to time and with the help of others, we can get through anything. You don’t have to walk this journey alone. I look forward to helping you become empowered to take control back of the areas your life that you need and want to.
I look forward to helping you to get more out of life.

LPC #74643 (Expires: 2022-06-30)
Dwayne is outstanding at what he does. I have never felt judged and feel open sharing absolutely anything. He gives me a mix of implementable solutions and tools to solve my own problems. He gives me amazing context into why I am reacting to things a certain way and how to address that. I could not recommend him more highly.
Dwayne does a great job of pushing me but at the same time understanding.
Dwayne provided me with very helpful council. He is a good listener and gave me tools that helped me navigate the challenges I have with anxiety and depression. He made me feel comfortable during our sessions. He used a good measure of both clinical and spiritual methods.
He’s a great counselor and an even better person
Dwayne has helped me tremendously with identifying the root cause of my issues.
Dwayne has been very helpful. I was on the verge of having a breakdown, feeling distressed, depressed and overall not myself. Dwayne helped me to focus on the issues, gave me an exercise to help me make decisions and helped me take the time to realize what's important and what I want my life to be. Now it's time to walk the walk. Thank you Dwayne for your to the point and direct counseling. I look forward to following up as I go through this next stage.
This is the first time I looked forward and enjoy my therapy sessions. In the past I always dreaded it but now I love it and can really see the difference in my week. Thank you Mr. Kilgore for always listening and being flexible with your time. Very much appreciated.
Dwayne has been a godsend. He has helped me see things in a new light and learn how to manage my triggers. All in just a short period of time. I’ve never done counseling before, and I couldn’t imagine it any better. So, thank you.
Be ready for an impactful but meaningful conversation. He might not be for the light of heart but he will get to the meat and bones of what ails you.
It is refreshing to find a provider with whom one can look forward to working with, despite the circumstances of having to come into therapy, and feel confident that they are familiar with your condition as well as the treatments and techniques used to promote recovery. It is also reassuring to know that your provider is familiar with the experts in that particular area of mental health; that was a new experience.good
Dr. Kilgore is a very good counselor, Great listener and always shares solutions to any problems. Most importantly he makes you feel like you can trust him.
Always thoughtful and a good listener. I don’t always have easy things to talk about so Dwayne helps me to look at things a different way with examples.
he's a great man
As a Christian man still growing in my walk with God, Dwayne has helped me onto a path of reflection and discovery about the real truth of my relationships. How God sees and loves me, how I serve and love the Lord, and how this dynamic is reflected in my marriage, parenting, and fellowship with others. I am early in my transformation but am encouraged by Dwayne's honest questions of how and whether I truly love the Lord my God with all my heart, mind, and soul. I would recommend Dwayne to anyone looking to start the journey toward the authentic person that God designed them to be.
Dr. D. always listens & provide tangible & practical methods for improving your life.
Very honest and straight forward...extremely helpful and understanding...
He has been supportive and firm in his conversations with me.
He seems very calm and easy to talk to. Very understanding.
He is extremely helpful! I am not good at english and he is very patient . I highly recommend.
A really warm kind guy! I instantly felt like he cared about me and my situation! I would love for him to be my husband's counselor, I just don't feel comfortable having a male counselor.
