Dolores A. Guilliod, MA, LPC

I am a Masters level, Licensed Professional Counselor, specializing in individual, marriage, and family therapy, as a private practitioner at Dolores Guilliod Christian Counseling Services. I earned my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Connecticut in Storrs, Connecticut, and my Master’s degree in Professional Counseling from Amberton University in Garland, Texas.

Prior to embarking on the journey to become a counselor, I worked with adolescents and troubled youth for over twenty-five (25) years within the state and county juvenile justice systems. In addition, I conducted kinship home assessments for children who had been removed from their family due to abuse and neglect, and conducted home studies for families who desire to adopt.

God has blessed me with a heart for the hurting adult and adolescent, and a burden for the family.  In my practice, I have the privilege of working with individuals from a variety of backgrounds and cultures, and with a range of presenting problems including grief, depression, anxiety, childhood abuse, and OCD.  I counsel married couples desiring healing from betrayal trauma, as well as couples who desire to break their patterns of conflict and obtain a deeper connection with their spouse.

I assisted in the development of the "Psalm 40 Retreat" intensives for pastors, preachers, missionaries and their spouses, and was the lead, on-staff counselor for the retreats.  Presently, I am an on-staff counselor at the "Hideaway Experience" located in Amarillo, Texas, which is a four-day marriage intensive for married couples in crisis.  

In my practice, I conduct both "In-Office" and "Tele-health" sessions. 

I believe in, and depend on, the power of prayer and God’s Word to surpass man's limitations. I will meet you where you are, in order to help you get to where you want to be.

My Values


Confidentiality is one of the most important components between a client and counselor.  Successful therapy requires a high degree of trust between the counselor and client. While the communications and records are confidential there are exceptions to confidentiality which we will talk about at our initial meeting.


The intricacies and depth of the problems presented in counseling, require creativity and wisdom. The value of creativity allows one to view the intricacies of each case and explore and test the approaches and solutions best suited for the problems presented.


Clients bring to counseling burdens and wounds that weigh them down. Compassion is a caring response to others' distress with the purpose of bearing another's burden and a desire to help alleviate the distress and weight of it: I will bring with me, the highest level of care and compassion to each client I meet.


We are all made in God's image and are "fearfully and wonderfully made."  Clients bring to counseling their unique personalities and life experiences. I will meet you where you are with acceptance, in a non judgmental manner, while we collaborate together to get you where you desire to be.
