About Dawn Ament
Seeking counseling is a huge step in receiving the help or creating the change that you want in your current situation, and I would love to walk alongside you through this process. I pull from cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) because most of the time we need a shift in either our behaviors, way of thinking, and/or negative thought process. However, I believe there are many roles a counselor can serve, and it will be different for each individual client depending on the needs. As your counselor, it is my duty to do my job to the best of my ability and within the ethics of the field and most up-to-date research. As a former high school teacher, I feel it is important to help my clients learn about themselves through education and thoughtfulness. I serve as a coach to guide you through the hard times, stumbles, and growth, knowing my role is sometimes to push you out of your comfort zone. Finally, I am always your biggest cheerleader, there to be positive and supportive in your personal journey.
Personally, I have been married for 24 years to a former Marine and former TAMU cadet and am a parent to two current Aggies, one of which is in the Corps of Cadets. I have worked for the Texas Aggie Corps of Cadets Association for over seven years. I am especially passionate about working with cadets as I know their language and lifestyle requires a special understanding and they have unique needs. I have served in the College Station community for over 12 years as founding president of National Charity League—Aggieland, founding board member of Young Men’s Service League—Aggieland, CSISD Citywide PTO president, and on various other PTO boards in the district. I am also dedicated to working with teenagers and/or their parents as well as young adults and college students as they face the many challenges that our modern world presents. Veterans, first responders, and elders also hold a special place in my heart, and I would be honored to help you navigate your current story.
