My formal education, practicums in play therapy, clinical internships in schools, residential group home, and at Childens Medical Center of Dallas / Psychiatric Consult Team prepared me to counsel individuals, groups, couples, families, and children.
The therapist's response is to come alongside the client to provide professional and competent care.Counseling is most helpful when there is a relationship between client and therapist that is honest, empathic, and committed; and provides awareness and personal growth. I believe the therapist and the therapeutic relationship serves as a mirror to the client whereby the client can view his/her reflection in a setting of acceptance, affirmation, change, and hopefully - healing. The client's journey to wholeness and healing is personal and self-directed and the therapist joins only by invitation of the client.

Masin is the parent of four children, one with special needs.
I love using CBT and neuropsychological assessment in my work with kids, parents and adults. There is no such thing as perfect, but there is such a thing as better. Every day we have a chance to make small changes towards understanding ourselves and our loved ones. I strive for progress and understanding, not perfection, so you will never feel judged here. I'm also a parent, so I can empathize. If you're looking for harmony in your family, a strong, healthy bond with your children or to understanding certain cognitive or psychological struggles, but you're not sure where to begin? Here and now is the best place to start.

I specialize in children and parenting. If your child has high anxiety, seems sad or withdrawn, or has had behavior changes, you might consider counseling. Sometimes the older kids just need someone besides family to talk to about what's going on. If your child is particularly challenging, maybe they have a lot of meltdowns, is aggressive, sad, or has had a traumatic event occur then I may be able to help. Has your child had a lot of medical procedures? Play therapy could help. If you are college-aged & lost or stressed/depressed/anxious, we can work together to get you back on track.

I believe in creating an environment which serves as a ‘soft place to land’ for my clients. When children are challenged, the entire family is challenged. By creating a positive environment where children feel accepted, valued, and safe, they are able to make sense of their world by expressing themselves in a way that feels natural to them. Children do not always have words to communicate their struggles and can become overwhelmed by big emotions. As a Registered Play Therapist, I strive to give voice to these challenges and support caregivers in navigating the sometimes difficult and very important job of parenting.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Rockwall, TX provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Rockwall build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
