INSIGHT-ORIENTED



ENGAGING


Insightful, Compassionate Mental Health Care for you and your family.

I have developed a strong reputation for careful and collaborative concern with those that are important to the care of you and your family. This sometimes looks like a call to a teacher or professor after a particularly tough week. This looks like coordinating care with a pediatrician or psychiatrist for medicine management. This could look like discussing challenging scenarios with your attorney or parent facilitator. Whatever the need, I strive to go the extra mile. 

There is no better time to start. I don’t make false promises or lead you down a rabbit trail. I know your time, money and resources are valuable. I develop a strong working plan with you at the beginning of therapy or coaching. I assess progress of the treatment plan each month. I work to give you a strong working rationale of the progress and scope of therapy. I value honest feedback on the services provided. .

I strive towards patience and understanding in the midst of challenging life circumstances. No story is too big or scary. I collaborate with clients by providing support in meeting their desired goals. I remind clients of their inherent self worth and dignity.

About Jarrod.

I enjoy helping children, adolescents and adults navigate through the complexities of powerful emotions and challenging life circumstances. I bring a warm sense of humor with an empathetic awareness to people struggling in tough situations. I want to meet you where you are in life’s journey, while bringing a fresh, non-judgmental perspective to each counseling session.

Training

As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Registered Play Therapist, I specialize in child and adolescent counseling, as well as working with parents and adults. I pursued my undergrad from Texas A&M University, and then received a master’s degree specializing in counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary. My specialty during my post-graduate internship included play therapy and child/adolescent counseling. I received my training to become a parent facilitator in 2014. I received my certification as a Registered Play Therapist in 2019. 

Interests

My special areas of interest include anxiety, ADHD, anger management, grief, depression, divorce care and school problems. I help parents keep their child out of the middle of difficult divorces. I am a trained parent facilitator and coordinator who works with parents on structured co-parenting plans. I provide parent education about developmental stages and reasonable expectations from cute baby to scary teen all the way to thriving adult!
