About me

I have been licensed as a professional counselor (Texas LPC #10783) since 1991. I earned a Masters in Counseling (M.A.) with dual specializations in community mental health and substance abuse treatment at St. Mary's University in San Antonio, Texas. From 2005-2018 I provided Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) DoT Back-to-Work Evaluations and am currently re-entering the SAP evaluation field beginning in mid-2024. I have experience in helping clients with coping with addictions, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, career difficulties, & coping with life changes. While I currently only see adults in one-to-one settings, my background consists of all ages from 4 to 104 in 1:1, couples, family, and groups. I practice currently online, although the majority of my past includes working in my private practice office, in- and out-patient treament facilities, and on assignments with federal safety agencies such as Customs and Border Patrol and U.S. Coast Guard. I have utilized hypnosis in my individual private practice over the past 20 years. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

Gordon is a perfect fit for my needs. I feel very comfortable speaking with him and trust his expertise and advice. He is open to listening if I just want to vent and offers insight and perspective.

Gordon is very responsive and gives great feedback. He knows when I need him to listen to me and does a great job of knowing when I need advice.
