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.

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.

Written by D.A. on Jan 12, 2022 after therapy with Dwayne for 2 months on issues concerning trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Dwayne has really been a big help in helping me through my trauma and getting an actual understanding of why things turned out the way they did it why certain things happen in general. He is incredibly astute and so knowledgeable. His best quality to me is he's a Christian and is able to incorporate biblical messaging to support what he says. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Therapist to truly help them with whatever is going on in their life. God Bless you Dwayne Kilgore

Dwayne Kilgore has been a huge help and an even greater blessing. I'm going through the toughest season of my life right now, and desperately want to make healthy and wise decisions. Dwayne helped me to center my thoughts, focus on my beliefs, and gave thought provoking feedback on my current circumstances. I leave every session feeling lighter of spirit and encouraged to keep going. Most importantly, he reminds me to keep my faith and to continue being the best version of myself. It feels good to know that there are people whom you don't know that can help you through the toughest storms.I am very appreciative of every session we've had. I pray everyone ends up with a therapist who sees and cares like Mr. Kilgore does, and I pray he is blessed with as much love, wisdom, and support that he provides for others.

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.

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

Written by M.I. on Dec 28, 2020 after therapy with Dwayne for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

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.
