Shirley Nedock, LPC
My professional experience includes over 13 years of experience working with our military service members and their dependents working through deployments, suicide, multiple relocation’s, marital issues, PTSD and other issues that military families face. In addition, I have worked with families, teens and children on multiple issues such as depression, anxiety, family issues, divorce, substance abuse, anger management, grief and loss, parenting skills, domestic violence, and adolescent issues.
I know that making the decision to contact a therapist can be difficult for some and my goal is to make the process as welcoming as possible. My approach to therapy is solution-focused and collaborative. You will find that sessions are more like a warm conversation in an office setting. I believe that everyone is motivated to succeed given the right tools in a safe and warm comfortable environment. I tend to use cognitive behavioral therapy or solution-focused therapy to help people overcome irrational and/or unhealthy thought patterns. I would love to help you overcome obstacles in your life and move forward.
Do you feel that your past is holding you back? Are you always worrying about the future? Are there days where getting out of bed seems impossible, or that things that once made you happy, don’t anymore? Do you feel tired, overwhelmed, and chaotic? Sometimes we need help clarifying and understanding our lives, like how our past influences our present, but doesn’t control it, and learning what we can change to make our life the one we want.
My name is DeeAnna Allison and I have a passion for helping people just like you. I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor since 2014 with a Master’s in Counseling from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and A Bachelor’s of Psychology from Texas State University. I am trained in Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI), Nurtured Heart, and person-centered therapy among others. Over the course of my career, I have worked with a diverse population with varying ages, ethnicities and cultures. I helped many people with a multitude of issues including anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, as well as grief and loss, using a person-centered approach, as well as, other techniques based on your needs, including expressive arts therapy techniques.
I offer you an open, safe space free of prejudice and judgment. I believe in the power of a positive therapeutic alliance, and my primary goal as a therapist is to empower you to identify the changes you want to make, and support you on your journey to make those changes.

Stacey Carlton, MS, LPC
Hello, I’ve been a Licensed Professional Counselor since 2016. I just recently moved to New Braunfels from the Austin area. I spent my internship and first years as an LPC working with kids who exhibit severe emotional and/or behavioral disturbances associated with co-morbid diagnoses, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and neurodevelopmental disorders. Working with this population and their families has been one of my greatest joys in my career. I began my career as a special education teacher and school counselor so I have a great deal of knowledge and background regarding the academic challenges our children face.
