Adam Rahman; Clinical Director

Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor, M.A.,LPC-S


As humans, we’re not always comfortable expressing our needs, owning our issues, or admitting that we have a problem. Frequently we wait until our lives are simply too big, too messy, or too complicated for us to manage before seeking out help. In the meantime, our problems don’t solve themselves. Quite often they get worse, involve other people, and begin to interfere with other aspects of our lives – like our families, our jobs, and our friends. Maybe this is your experience, or you’re afraid it will be. Because we feel stigma around mental health, especially if we’ve achieved some personal or career success, this experience can be lonely – even isolating.

What you’re experiencing is what countless other men are facing as well. I know this because I see them in my office every day. Their stories are all unique; however, they share more in common than they know: burnout, anxiety, self-sabotage, depression, relationship issues, codependency, and addiction. Left unchecked, each of these has the potential to create permanent damage. This is what I work to prevent, and this is all about us.

My clinical practice is exclusively dedicated to the needs of humans and I work to bridge the gap between where you are, and where you want to be; between who you are, and who you want to be. Sometimes the first step is this: knowing you’re not alone. Together we can begin to deal with the rest.

Adam Rahman is a board-certified Licensed Professional Counselor. He utilizes the most advanced clinical methods, including EMDR, to treat anxiety, trauma & PTSD, depression, men’s issues, addiction, as well as issues around relationships and career.

A Message From Adam

Are you or a loved one grappling with relationship challenges, such as codependency, low self-esteem, or a pattern of entering and exiting relationships? Do you sense a disconnection from those around you? Have you noticed the development of unhealthy habits or compensatory behaviors? Our counselors specialize in guiding individuals in discomfort towards finding solace through our therapeutic alliance.

Our preferred clientele includes individuals navigating challenging or strained relationships, as well as those grappling with concerns such as anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and trauma. Unaddressed, these challenges can lead to enduring damage in relationships, diminished academic and occupational performance, and ultimately, a complete disruption of daily routines.

Often, past decisions and behaviors contribute to a perceived lack of control over one’s life. If you or someone you care about is contending with these difficulties, the encouraging news is that assistance is available, and you or they are not alone in facing these challenges.

Dr. Monique Raack Rahman

Licensed Professional Counselor – PhD., NCC


Monique is a graduate of Texas A&M University Honors Psychology program with a minor in Neuroscience, and the University of Houston – Victoria’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling graduate program. She is also currently enrolled at St. Mary’s University’s Counselor Education and Supervision doctoral program with a concentration in play therapy and a desire to further research counseling from a wellness perspective.

Monique has had experience on a university helpline, at psychiatric hospitals, community agencies and clinics, as well as private practices.

Though the majority of Monique’s experience has been with clients who are in crisis (suicidal, homicidal, psychotic), she also enjoys helping people deal with more common life stressors and becoming a happier version of themselves. Believing in a holistic view, she believes it is important to address all areas of wellness, and works from a person-centered, solution-focused orientation. If you’ve heard her speak, you may have heard her on her soapbox telling everyone how important taking care of your mental health is, whether you have a mental illness or not. She can often be heard asking, “If you don’t wait to break a bone to go to the doctor’s office, or wait for gingivitis to go to the dentist, then why wait for a crisis to see a counselor?” She commends all of her clients for taking responsibility of their health and emotional wellness, and jokes that the “crazy” people are those who choose to ignore their health. As she believes people need to start conversations about emotional health from a young age, she is also currently working towards becoming a Registered Play Therapist. For more information about how children can benefit from counseling, please read more about Play Therapy in our services section. Monique enjoys helping clients throughout the lifespan, and tries to incorporate creativity, activities and expressive arts with clients of all ages.

When she’s not watching movies with her dogs, friends or family, Monique also enjoys traveling the world, doing arts and crafts, or reading a good book with a warm cup of tea.

Thinking that it was time to retire, Stuart retired in 2011 at the age of 61 to pursue other interests but quickly realized that retirement was not for him. He then became passionate about helping young people who were in trouble and addicted to drugs and alcohol. He went back to school and obtained his Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor – Internship license and went to work for the Cenikor Foundation as a Behavioral Technician until a counseling position became available. He completed his internship at Cenikor and had a caseload of over 50 individuals. While working as an LCDC-Intern, his passion for helping people deepened and everyone could see it. He became the most desired counselor at the facility.

After working there for several years, Stuart moved on to the Cheyenne Center where he counseled hundreds of young men during the four years he worked there. He not only counseled them individually but also held over 16 psychoeducational and process groups weekly. While working at the Cheyenne Center, Stuart realized that he wanted more mental health counseling education, so he returned to school and received a Master’s in Mental Health Counseling from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. He graduated with a 3.67 grade average out of 4.0.
