A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
Clyde Fraley, MA, LMFT Associate, NCC
My recent history in counseling involved providing therapy to students at Sam Houston State University with issues that included trauma, depression, performance anxiety, and relationship issues. I also helped families of domestic violence at the SAAFE House in Huntsville, TX. I'm currently in private practice and provide therapy to individuals, couples and families with issues that are primarily relational in nature.
My past experience in the helping profession began 30 years ago. I was involved with church programs that fed the hungry and provided assistance to those in need. My compassion for people led me to The Crisis Assistance Center where I managed a program for the homeless. I also built another program for the homeless for Volunteers of America that houses 40+ families. This award-winning program is still thriving in Conroe today.

Mary Nichter, PhD, LMFT-S, LPC-S
As an LMFT Associate, I am required to receive one hour of supervision per week for two years. Because of her vast experience in counseling couples, families, and individuals, I have agreed to have Dr. Mary Nichter provide this supervision. She is board-certified to provide supervision to LMFT Associates (License 1957) and LPC Interns (License 13526). If you need to contact her regarding the care you are receiving, you may do so by phone or email.
Dr. Nichter has been an SHSU faculty member since 1999 and has fulfilled the roles of professor, counselor, educator, and program coordinator. She has also served as the first chair of the Counselor Education program at SHSU. Before she came to SHSU, she served as a professor and program coordinator at both San Jacinto and Blinn Colleges. Dr. Nichter’s early experience includes pre-school and kindergarten teaching, as well as school counseling.
