About

‘I can’t handle it anymore, all by myself! We have to get help or I don’t know what will happen.’
We Are Here. We Care. We Understand.

You may feel helpless and hopeless, but our caring staff of counselors can help you find the support and understanding you need to make the changes you want.

Work with a skilled, dedicated, experienced counselor who can assist you in dealing with divorce, trauma, and life changes. Therapy focuses on developing relationships within the family through individual therapy for the child, parenting assistance, and family interventions. Life is complicated and we can help!

Learning to navigate parenting issues, marital troubles, issues from our past, and integrating our world view into our lifestyle can be difficult–especially when we feel so disconnected from others. Find free content in our counseling and education blog, come to our parenting and relationship classes. If these resources aren’t enough, call for an intake session to talk about the many choices you have in dealing with your family’s problems. Access your online HIPAA compliant account, and learn all about our staff on this website.

My Christian Faith and My Professional Practice

Our practice support families in integrating their worldview into their child's life. While we work closely with the child, unless they bring up faith related topics, we prefer to teach parents how to incorporate their world view into parenting. This allows the parents to be the main touchpoint for spiritual issues, which is a foundational belief for us. We educate, support and offer suggestions on ways we have seen people successfully teach Christ's love and boundaries as parents. However, as we are not theologically trained, we can only offer lay understandings of the scriptures.

Ashley Barkley

LPC
I began my career in the reunification of children and families who had been in the foster care system in Oklahoma. I am familiar with the court system and feel passionately about helping families learn to parent effectively together in challenging situations.

In 2010, I became a school counselor. This provided me with a great understanding of schools and the struggles that children often face in a group setting. I believe that environment plays a large role in healthy functioning so something unique that I offer clients in conjunction with office therapy is a one or two session observation of the client in their natural environment (i.e. home, school, daycare).

I have worked in many areas of the counseling field and have truly loved the different dynamics that they offer. My focus has been children and families but I enjoy working with a variety of people.

I moved to Denton two years ago, and while I’m not quite ready to call myself a Texan, I have truly embraced Denton and l

LPC Intern Supervised By Sharon beam LPCS
In 2011, after being a stay at home mom for eight years, I was led to resume my education and it had to be within the world of mental health. I received my bachelor’s in psychology from Dallas Baptist University in 2013 and continued my education at Mid-America Christian University. Graduating in 2016, I received my master’s degree in licensed professional counseling in 2016, which included a practicum tenure at The Children’s Advocacy Center of Denton County. I have been trained in Natural Lifemanship, an equine assisted approach to therapy and am currently under the professional supervision of Sharon Beam, M. Ed, LPC-S.

I absolutely love being a wife, mother, and homeschool teacher to my three children. In my spare time, I have the privilege to serve on the board of Christian Youth Theater Dallas, co-facilitate a small group at The Village Church in Flower Mound with my husband and am an active member of the Denton County Homeschool Association.

LPC Supervisor Registered Play Therapist
My growing up years were spent all over Texas and Kansas, but I graduated from high school in Conroe. College Station was my home in undergrad--WHOOP!--and once I received my BA in Psychology at Texas A & M, I moved on to Sam Houston State University for my masters in Clinical Psychology.

My work as a therapist started in 1999 at a Mental Health Mental Retardation center. I first worked with adults diagnosed with chronic mental health issues and then moved to work with children and families. I was fully licensed by the state of Texas in 2000 and received my registration as a play therapist in 2001.

My family moved to Denton in 2001 and I began working with extremely traumatized children who were unsafe for themselves and others. My work changed substantially in 2003 when I became a mother for the first time and a private Christian therapist. I've been working with children, families, and traumatized women since then while learning to integrate my life as a wife, mother, and Chris

Dr. Pam Rinn

LMFT Associate
Life can be hard sometimes. The life you've wanted can seem out of reach due to past emotional scars, loss of hope, being stuck in behaviors that aren't helpful. I recognize that there are times when individuals, couples, and families need a new perspective when they find what has worked before doesn't work now. I have over 25 years of experience helping families with young children and adolescents navigate the life course. I partner with individuals, couples and "empty nesters" to work through challenges to discover support and symptom relief.

Systemic family therapy identifies patterns of coping behaviors that help or get in the way of healthy relationships. Symptom relief and healing are aided by an individualized therapeutic approach which nurtures the whole person or relationship, celebrates unique strengths, and works to promote protective factors.

Contact me at 940-222-8703, ext 705 or email me at pam@acorncounseling.services. I can't wait to meet your family!
