Eric Rothe, MA., LPC, LCDC - Counselor
We are all in an important time of change in our world and are finding ourselves doing so many more things by computer. Whether having Zoom meetings, or with Facebook Live, or with meeting in sessions with Texas Online Counseling, we are carrying on so many important activities on our computers and phones. With all of this change, it may come with the challenge of making adjustments. As a counselor, Eric enjoys encouraging clients and helping them to be resilient and to thrive in living–even when times are filled with questions and difficulty.
Eric has lived in Texas since 1981 and has seen so many things grow and improve, while also becoming increasingly complex. He has lived in this dynamic setting, by participating in the regular parts of living–going to school, finding a partner and marrying, adopting a child, and exploring the worlds of work, family, and play. Eric has enjoyed three careers with related moves to several places in the North Texas area. From the metroplex, to the country, and to small towns, he has found that life in this area bustles with excitement and energy. Through it all, Eric has experienced both the joys and the sorrows that make up the details of living for all of us. There have been gains and losses, accomplishments and failures, celebrations and griefs. He has experienced so much, and now is excited to help others through some of the same kind of changes, growth, and challenges.
When he's not doing counseling, Eric enjoys spending time with his family, with his border collie Ranger, and with his horses and cattle. Eric reads a lot and really likes to relax and take it easy when he can. He loves to play Irish music and dreams of a time that he can return to the Emerald Island for another vacation and adventure. Eric loves to hike, but is really slowing down with the oncoming Texas heat!

Patricia Keaton MA., LPC - Counselor
Patricia graduated from Texas Woman’s University in Denton, TX in May 1980 and received a Bachelor of Social Work (licensed as an LSW/LBSW from 1988 – 2019). In May 1997, she graduated from Amber University (now Amberton University) and received her Master of Arts Degree in Counseling (Licensed Professional Counselor from 2010 – 2021) (will renew in June 2021).
Patricia began her career on August 4, 1980, at the Dallas Police Department in the Social Services Unit of the Community Services Division. She was responsible for responding to the referrals from Police Officers for families with problems that included: domestic violence, juvenile issues, elderly, mental health, neighborhood problems, and any other issues that were not criminal but needed assistance. They made assessments and provided short-term counseling and referred to appropriate agencies.
In 1988 – 1996, Patricia was assigned to the Northwest Patrol Station and worked out of the Maple Police Storefront in the community to help families in low-income/high crime areas of the city of Dallas. During that time, she worked closely with the residents of this community and helped develop programs for the neighborhood along with the YMCA. Patricia supervised volunteers and assisted with needs in the targeted neighborhood.
In 1996, Patricia was promoted to the Crimes Against Persons Division and started the Victim Services Unit for the Dallas Police Department. During her time in this division (CAPERS), she learned about all types of violent crimes and how to provide assistance to the victims/survivors of violent crimes including Sexual Assaults, Homicide survivors, Aggravated Assaults, Robbery Victims, and Domestic Violence survivors. Patricia also wrote a VOCA (Victims of Crime ACT) grant to hire a full-time advocate and a part-time advocate. She supervised the advocates and volunteers along with several college interns working on their degrees in Social Work, Psychology, and counseling. Patricia developed and provided training for the recruits at the Police Academy on Crime Victims’ Rights, Texas Crime Victims Compensation, Awareness and Sensitivity, and about Victim Services. She worked in the Crimes Against Persons Division until she retired in August 2017.
A week before Patricia retired from the Dallas Police Department, she started a part-time job as a Counselor with The Counseling Place in Richardson, Texas. Her primary duties were to work with Spanish Speaking clients who were experiencing, trauma, anxiety, depression, sexual assaults, and general family/marital problems. Patricia worked from August 2017 until September 2019 when she did not renew my contract due to financial difficulties of the agency.
