A. Stephen Lenz

A. Stephen Lenz, PhD, LPC, NCC is Chair and a Professor in the Department of Counseling, Health and Kinesiology at Texas A&M University-San Antonio.  

Lenz began his career in the community mental health system where he worked as a licensed professional counselor and clinic director. Later, he transitioned to dual appointments in counselor education and private practice where he established a reputation for productive community partnerships aimed at promoting client well-being through training counselors in evidence-based practices, best practices for use of assessment and evaluation results, increased capacity for data-driven decision making, and life-long commitments to self-care and community interest. Lenz’s community-based work has received more than 5 million in external funding, spans several of the contiguous United States, and has been acknowledged as best practice by the American Counseling Association and the Association for Assessment and Research in Counseling.
