Donald Short's bio

This content was provided by Donald Short "I have been licensed as a Professional Counselor since July of 2003 (lic. # 2669) and am also a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (Lic. # 648). My wife and I have been foster parents to special needs children for over 25 years serving about 35 children during that time. We have fostered children with ADHD, Autism, developmental disabilities, behavior disorders and a variety of other mental health disorders and family challenges. I have helped many clients work through complex family issues and assisted them in developing solutions to their problems. I have a general practice with a focus on clients with marriage, relationship and family issues. I am also a marriage counselor and use my 41 years of being married to one wife, professional training, and my deep understanding of people and relationships to help couples create a rewarding relationship and family life. I have been a resident of the Lafayette area for over 32 years. My wife and I have ­­four grown children, one, which is adopted, and two grandchildren."

I have seen many psychologists and therapists throughout my many years living with Bipolar and PTSD. Mr. Short was the ONLY one, from Acadia Parish to E. Baton Rouge Parish, who was able to not only help me, but continue to maintain stability in my life.
