Our Counselors

Two things need to be present to make a good Counselor--a heart for people (or empathy and compassion) and professionalism (or a master of the tools of psychotherapy). A Counselor that is all professionalism and no heart is missing the mark, because love is empowering according to Virginia Saatir. A Counselor that is all heart and no professionalism is charging too much because this is best gotten in a good friend over a cup of tea. You can trust that every Counselor at Counseling Resource Center meets these two criteria.

Counselor Evaluation

Ann Bolton

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Pharmacist. I graduated from the Houston Graduate School of Theology with a Masters in Counseling and also earned a degree in Pharmacy from the University of Texas at Austin. I have been married since 1983 and have two adult children. I have worked as a counselor in private practice since 2006--working with children, adolescents, and adults.

I see the study of Psychology as a great tool into understanding and working with human behavior, and therefore I use an eclectic mix of counseling theories.

I am familiar with the etiologies and workings of addictions, and an advocate of the Twelve Steps of Recovery. In addition to the Twelve Steps, I also use Cognitive/Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and some Gestalt techniques to heal the mind-set that is hindering the growth of the individual.

I am a Certified Anger Management Trainer and I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and professional mediation. I find the win/win technique of negotiation valuable in marriage and family counseling.

I agree with Virginia Satir's statement that love is empowering and healing.

I am the owner of Counseling Resource Center. The doors were opened May 2008.

Lillian Priest

I graduated locally from Houston Graduate School of Theology and have been a Licensed Professional Counselor in practice since the year 2000.

Family is important to me as I understand from personal experience how early memories and unresolved emotional issues can affect all areas of our lives. My first marriage to an abusive alcoholic lasted thirteen years. I have now been married, by God’s grace, a second time for over 30 years and am very proud of my son, 2 stepsons, 10 grandkids, and 4 great-grandkids.

As an LPC-S I work with adults in individual and couples settings. My primary counseling method draws heavily on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I am a Registered Play Therapist, and am also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) and CISM (Critical Incident Stress Management). I adapt my methods to suit the needs of each client. I get the most joy from bringing sexual abuse survivors to wholeness and health.

My passion is to help people realize some of their unproductive thinking and lead them to a place of wholeness and health; allowing them the freedom and self-confidence to be who they were intended to be. I have a strong faith in God and His redemptive work and believe that incorporating spirituality, with the counselee’s approval, into the counseling sessions brings about the best results in a person’s life.

Chip Pasche

Marital / Pre-marital
Men and Women
Adolescent boys
Anger management
Trauma Recovery

Being faithfully married for 38 years, I enjoy guiding struggling marriages towards reconciliation. I also enjoy helping pre-marital couples come to appreciate not only their areas of strength, but also guiding them to discuss their areas of needed growth together. As to counseling of individuals, my experience includes helping Men and Adolescent Young Men with issues such as Anger and Stress Management, PTSD, Depression, Meaning of Life Issues, Pornography / Sexual Addictions, and all types of Relational Difficulties. I am also experienced in helping Women with the aftermath of Trauma, Anxiety and all types of Relational Difficulties.

My psychological theory would generally be Cognitive-Behavioral. But I also believe that psychological counseling and spirituality integrate beautifully together. If such a combined approach is desired by the counselee, then this more holistic approach can be extremely beneficial to emotional health. I specialize in counseling that includes integrated spirituality.

I consider counseling a labor-of-love second career, following a combined 30 years in the military and corporate business worlds. I am also very proud to call Tomball, TX home, being in a family that has lived in the Tomball-Klein communities for five generations.

Donna also has a fondness for the 12-steps and guiding principles of Alcoholics Anonymous and has been privy to the transformation that can take place as a result of sharing of one’s experience, strength, and hope. The 12-step program not only combats addiction but serves as a healthy model for daily living.

All of her experiences contribute toward her Rogerian perspective which includes unconditional positive regard which enables clients to grow in self- awareness  She has become familiar Jungian ideas and embraces practices of Psychodrama and Gestalt as a means of gaining insight into less successful patterns of behavior. She believes in the life long journey towards wholeness and refers to the quote, “The privilege of a life time is to become who you really are” (Carl Jung).
