Welcome to The Family Center for Therapy and Assessment
Welcome to Help. A lot of times in a relationship we don’t know when we need help, and by the time we realize it, it is often too late. Whether it be between partners, children, or both, at the Family Center we are here to help you find the help you need to overcome any obstacle you may be facing. Because help can look different for everyone, contact us here at the Family Center to find a specialized treatment plan for you and your loved ones.
The Family Center for Therapy and Assessment (TFCTA) is a private practice owned by Dr. Gaston Rougeaux-Burnes. Dr. Rougeaux-Burnes is a Licensed Psychologist who specializes in working with children, couples, and families, from all over West Texas. Dr. Rougeaux-Burnes offers a variety of services, including couples therapy, individual therapy, and parent training, as well as play therapy for children. Overall, Dr. Rougeaux-Burnes possesses a willingness to help you and your loved ones feel supported and guided through difficult times, and overcome your obstacles.
Therapeutically, Dr. Rougeaux-Burnes employs a short-term approach to help you and your family reach your goals as soon as possible. Therefore, the process of therapy doesn’t have to last indefinitely, just long enough to get “unstuck.”
To make a car run well, you need the right fuel. The same goes for any relationship. While getting in a relationship is easy, identifying healthy and appropriate habits for you and your partner is a lot harder. This is the purpose of couple’s therapy, to help individuals who are in romantic relationships find healthy and appropriate boundaries, discuss appropriate ways to disagree, and reach goals of their relationship.
Just like relationships are built on compromise, so are families. Therefore, a systemic approach is used to address all the varying of the family unit, and help everyone involved feel heard, find their role, and move from where they “are,” to where they want to “be.”
Parent - Training Therapy
Everything in life comes with a manual, except children. A lot of times, parents learn from those closest to them, and their own experiences. But, when everything we know as parents stops working, who do we turn to? This is where “Parent-Training” Therapy comes in. The goal of this approach is to help parents and children develop skills to help them identify what is “working,” and take the focus off of what is “not working.”
Divorce is change, and with that change it can bring a myriad of new issues neither partner ever expected. Whether it be new parenting strategies, relating to your former partner, or managing priorities, this can be a way for all parties involved to compromise towards a better tomorrow.
Sometimes to move forward, we have to look inward. This is what individual therapy is designed to do. Whether it be roadblocks we have always dealt with or new ones that seem to spring up out of nowhere, this approach can help you deal with those obstacles in an appropriate and healthy manner.
Our children, are our future. Which is why it is important to invest in them as such. With children’s therapy your child can learn valuable coping skills, social skills, and interaction strategies to help them deal with whatever life throws their way.
In knowing Dr. Rougaux-Burnes over the last seven years I can say that he is one of the hardest working and dedicated people I have had the pleasure of working with. He is always eager to learn, apply novel approaches, and generally demonstrates an ability to identify the big obstacles even with the most complex patients.Dr. Phillip Hawley, PsyD
Dr. Rougeaux-Burnes attempts to see the big picture with all of his clients , whether they be adults, older adults, families, couples or even children, and helps them reach the goals they set for themselves. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for a psychologist who is as committed to the success of his patients, and supporting them in being the best they can be.
