Thelma Rouse, Ph.D., LPC-S, NCC, LMFT-S
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I have a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a dually licensed therapist in the state of Texas, as a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). I am also a nationally certified counselor (NCC). I have been professionally trained in a “systemic” approach. As a systemic family therapist, I observe problems within the context of the family.
As a therapist using the systemic approach, I believe that the source of the problem originates within the context of the family as a whole, and not merely the individual. It is my hope as your therapist to use this approach to empower you and your family to obtain long-lasting change, as you reveal and learn to alter the generational patterns causing distress in the family system.
