About Us

Cedric Dunmore, MA, LCDC

A retired veteran of the United States Air Force with 20 years of service and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC). While in the Air Force I was trained in mental health, substance use, and social work. I also have experience working with military personnel and their families on developing healthy life skills and supportive counseling during wartime and peace time campaigns. Shortly before retiring, I received my bachelor degree from Park University in Social Psychology (2000). I also received my Master of Arts (MA) in Counseling from St. Edward's University (2017). 

Post military career, I worked with substance use offenders with the Substance Abuse Felony Punishment Program (SAF-P) in Hondo, Texas assisting pre-released offenders and their families with skills for reunification with family and tools for a successful recovery. Most recently my passion afforded me the opportunity to perform duties as: case manager, lead substance use counselor, continuing care coordinator, and marketing & business development representative for a local treatment center where I worked for 10 years.

In 1989, I began working in the counseling field with the specialty of working with addicts and their families. I am also an Intervention Professional. I have empathy for both addicts and family members which fuels my passion to help improve their total quality of life as a unit. My beliefs are anchored in the spiritual realm of, with hope all things are possible. My goal is to offer options for strengthening the clients will to maximize their potential for success. 

Debbie Dunmore, MEd, LPC

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I received my Master of Education (MEd.) in 2006 at Texas Tech University.

Since 2004, I have worked directly with children and adolescents in many diverse areas to include: substance use inpatient/outpatient programs, foster care system, and the Lubbock Juvenile Detention Center. The experience has allowed me to broaden my awareness and humanitarian skills. I’m very passionate about working with older adolescents and bringing hope back into their lives. I’ve witnessed that in order to accomplish this goal, the family dynamics must be incorporated. It will take all parties involved to engage and work together in order to see growth and change.

Since moving to the Austin area in 2010, I’ve also had the privilege to work with collegiate age clients and couples/families, dealing with life transitions, communication issues, trust, and conflict resolution. My therapeutic style is geared more toward Reality Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
