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.

If we can’t help you, we know who in Denton County can! 940-222-8703

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor Intern supervised by Christy Graham, LPC Supervisor
Does your child seem distant, angry, or difficult to understand?
Through joy and play, I work to connect with children to assess where they are at and guide them to achieve closer relationships, more self control, and better communication. I offer therapy for children ranging from trauma recovery to social interaction and building communication skills and relational understanding.
If your child seems “buried” within themselves and is isolating themselves more and more or if you notice they are nervous or showing strange behavior, bring them to me and we will work together to bring your child on a path of healing and restoration back to who they truly are. Through play, art, and conversation I can help your child overcome their obstacles; ranging from social and behavioral issues to mood and impulse control.
I am also happy to counsel those struggling to decide which area to study or career to choose onward to a path they feel confident is right for them as they get ready to launch o

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

LPC Intern Supervised by Monya Crow, LPCS
Born and raised in the Dallas/Ft Worth area, I grew up in Flower Mound, TX and traveled a short distance north to Denton for college at TWU as well as UNT. After college I moved to Guam during my husband’s military stay and now we have settled back in Denton since 2009.

The favor of counseling and mental health was first experienced through my own high school counselor which fostered my interest and created true passion for the field. Having taught high school for 8 years and currently working as a high school counselor, I have expanded my experience into private practice and am currently working as an LPC-Intern with plans for full licensure.

Believing in overall wellness, I support counseling in a Godly & holistic way that includes the mind, body, & soul to maximize one’s potential. This world can provide many false hopes & desires that ultimately affects our purpose in life. My beliefs surround that we are all created with greatness that only we can possess. My passion is to c

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.
