HandsKatherine is currently licensed by the state of Texas as a Licensed Professional Counselor and is a Registered Play Therapist. She is also a Foundational Theraplay Practitioner, TBRI Practitioner and EMDR Trained Therapist.  She holds a Master’s degree in Counseling from the University of North Texas and Bachelor of Art degree in Psychology from Texas Woman’s University.  She is also a member of the American Counseling Association, Association for Play Therapy, Texas Association for Play Therapy, and North Texas Mental Health Professionals.

Katherine’s passion is helping children and families who are struggling to connect, communicate, and relate find more meaningful and enjoyable relationships during the brief formative years when family is the greatest source of support.  She specializes in not only helping to provide a safe, secure environment for children to understand and process their feelings and experiences, but in supporting families with resources, education, and training so parents can feel better supported and equipped to handle the often emotional roller coaster of growing-up.

 Katherine’s formal education, training, and experience counseling at a non-profit organization, as well as private practice, have prepared her to counsel adults, children, and adolescents in individual and group settings focusing on issues such as abuse, adoption/foster transitions, anger, attachment, ADD/ADHD, bullying, childhood trauma, depression, grief, life adjustment, and peer/sibling conflict.
