Hi, my name is John-Mark R. Carter. My lovely wife and I live in the Northwest Austin Texas area with our 3 kiddos. We have 2 twin 9-year-old girls and a 7-year-old little brother who lives to hear his sisters squeal. Our favorite thing to do is to make a huge Saturday morning breakfast, snuggle up, and find a great family movie to have ‘teach time’ without them realizing it.
I’m a Licensed Chemical Dependency counselor with over 9 years of experience in this field. I truly love to see the change that happens for clients on a daily basis. I also love seeing my own personal growth coming from each interaction I have with new clients. I’ve learned so much more from my clients than I would ever be able to teach them. I believe that a clinician’s primary responsibility above all, is to provide a conducive atmosphere for the client to find their truth; which can only be cultivated through unconditional positive regard, clinical congruence, and empathy.
