Exceedingly Abundantly
Beyond All
You Can Imagine

Ephesians 3:20

A Distinct Identity

We are committed to honoring and serving God by leaving a legacy through Christian counseling and education. Guided by a Biblical model of practice it is our privilege to journey with you through life’s struggles to a place of renewed emotional strength, hope and a revitalized passion for God.

We believe that we can work through our struggles in such a profound way that they can be used to draw us to a place of wisdom, depth and dependency on Jesus Christ. That is where true healing can occur and our lives and relationships can be changed forever.

It is a safe place where a person can allow their story of struggle to transform them and their relationships through Biblical truth and experience God’s love for them in incredible ways.

Welcome Home

It was our dream for many years to have a counseling center in a home where you felt comfortable and relaxed. We're located in the heart of Cypress, Texas on three acres in a beautifully renovated farmhouse.

Who We Are
Guy Gourley

Licensed Clinical Pastoral Counselor


Guy is the founder of The Legacy Center for Christian Counseling and has been counseling for thirty years as a therapist. 

He holds two Masters degrees. One from Colorado Christian University in Biblical Counseling and another from Dallas Theological Seminary in Biblical Studies, emphasizing pastoral counseling. He was a Texas Licensed Professional Counselor for over twenty years before becoming a Licensed Clinical Pastoral Counselor through the NCCA, The National Board of Christian Counselors Examiners.

While in Denver, Guy was a therapist in a large group practice working with individuals and couples with anger management and domestic violence issues. As a result, he is highly effective in working with struggling couples, especially those who have little hope for their marriage or relationship. Additionally, Guy furthered his expertise by joining a large group practice in Houston where he has worked primarily with marriages and couples in relationship restoration, adult and adolescent males with anger management issues, adults with depression, anxiety, trauma-related issues, adjustment problems, affair recovery, and single life issues.

He has a passion for relationship restoration and enrichment because he knows that if the marriage stays together, the family stays together. In the past, he partnered with The Clearing, an organization committed to providing marriage intensives that are refreshing to the soul and restoring relationships. Today he still does private intensives for couples.

He thoroughly enjoys combining his faith and spiritual direction to his counseling and respects where a person is in their spiritual journey. Whether developing seminars or speaking, Guy’s heart for people and his passion for his work are evident. His entertaining presentation is both motivating and hope-invigorating. Guy’s insightful and compassionate approach touches people’s hearts where they need it most. We hear his clients comment all the time about how they once were uncertain about getting help and now it is like sitting down with a coach or a good friend.

Guy is frequently requested to present his marriage enrichment seminar and speak at conferences, retreats, divorce recovery programs, and churches. Audiences everywhere overwhelmingly receive him.

Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor


Adriana Wallace is a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor who attended Sam Houston State University for undergrad. She completed her specialization in Chemical Dependency at LoneStar College, receiving her license through the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. Since then, she worked at a group practice before opening her own practice in August 2021. She is honored to work with adolescents, adults, families, and couples to provide an emotionally safe, non-judgemental environment where they work towards healing and acceptance.

Alcohol and substance use are lonely roads that can quickly leave you isolated; separating you from the ones you love and the life you most want to lead. Adriana believes strongly in taking your struggles and turning them into a place of strength and growth, she wants to help all of her clients learn the skills they need to live the healthy and productive substance free life they deserve.

Every individual is unique in how they came to depend on their substance of choice, therefore every path towards recovery should be uniquely tailored for that individual. Lets work together in setting the goals and learning the skills you need to find joy and balance in recovery towards a better way of dealing with life’s circumstances.
