Dr. Bill LaBauve specializes in marriage and family therapy as well as child therapy. Originally from New
Orleans, Louisiana, Bill received his doctorate from Texas A&M University - Commerce. He is a member of the American
Counseling Association, Texas Counseling Association, Texas Association of Counselor Educators and Supervisors, and the Mid-Texas
Counseling Association. He enjoys spending time with his children, engaging in sports and a variety of outdoor activities.
Although this is his second published book with Debbie, Ms.Mabray and Dr. LaBauve were initially published in an international
journal (Sex Education) in 2002, "A Multimodal Approach to Sex Education".
"Let's Talk" takes an eye-opening, positive look at these issues, offering gentle reminders and suggestions
for improving our patterns, bonding, and creating an open, encouraging environment...Mabray and LaBauve deliver valuable illustrations
of the often misunderstood messages adult behavior sends as well as what youthful actions may be trying to express.
By bridging the gap between parent and child, not only will you form a more meaningful relationship with your children, but
you'll also help increase their chances for successful relationships and endeavors throughout their lives."
