Can my child be taught to control his behavior? Will she be able to have meaningful relationships? Are our goals and expectations reasonable? Will life ever become “normal” for my family? I just want him to be happy and at peace with who he is.
individuals will experience a variety of emotional, behavioral, social and educational difficulties. Mild difficulties often are a natural part of growth and development, and through the process of overcoming adversity, a person learns new skills, develops insight and wisdom, and builds resilience. However, there are times and situations when moderate to severe problems arise, that will require professional assistance to address psychological needs.
we welcome children, adolescents and families who are facing these challenges. Our practice is designed to help support, teach and collectively navigate through the process of effective treatment. If you are ready to successfully reach goals and achieve healthy solutions, contact us today.
We are here to understand.
We are here to promote change.
We are ready to begin.
All services are offered during 50-minute sessions by appointment (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday: 4pm - 8pm). EAP sessions are offered by appointment at Five Horses Ranch in Waller, Texas two Saturdays per month (9am - 12pm).
We begin with an initial consultation, during which we are available to provide answers to any questions that you may have about our services or psychological services in general. Additionally, information collected during the initial meeting enables us to begin to understand the reason for referral, formulate hypotheses, explore treatment options, and develop a plan for measuring treatment progress. We are here to help; contact us today!
Often, treatment begins with individual counseling. To maximize progress, counseling may be supported with parent training and consultation with school systems as appropriate. This supportive and interactive process often leads to gained insight, symptom reduction, and behavioral change.

The most important elements in determining the quality of psychological services are the relationship between the client and therapist and the experience of the professional. Throughout a collective 30+ years of experience providing psychological services to children, adolescents, young adults, parents, teachers, and administrators, we have learned a few things...
We know that students go to school and parents work, so we hold office hours from 4 pm to 9 pm Monday through Thursday, and some Saturdays during the day/evening.
We know that time is a valuable resource, so offer parent training in conjunction with child/adolescent treatment. This will also promote behavioral change and generalization of new skills.
We know that children and adolescents learn "experientially," so offer opportunities for our clients to work through challenges in unique and fun ways above and beyond "talk therapy."
We understand that social skills are best learned in social situations, so offer groups to assist our clients to explore and practice social interactions.
We know that difficulties experienced by one can affect others throughout their surrounding systems (i.e., family, friends, school, etc.). Therefore, we encourage communication and shared knowledge to promote generalization and change.
And, we know that, no matter what the diagnosis, symptoms, or severity of difficulties, we all have strengths to share and connections worth developing.
We are here to understand. We are here to promote change. We are here to help.
