Service on Saturday, February 24 will be held at the Prosper campus (2000 W Prosper Trail). We will not meet at Frisco East or stream this service online.
Our counseling philosophy is based on two main ideas. First, God did not intend for us to do life alone. Second, we can only be as healthy and whole as we possibly can be when we have a place where we can be ruthlessly honest about ourselves.

We have developed relationships with wonderful Christian counselors and therapists in the area. There is a cost involved on your part, but these are professionals we trust who will give you excellent guidance and Godly principles. Feel free to contact them to check on price and availability.
HOW TO NAVIGATE THIS PAGE:

jared@parrishfamilytherapy.com

CLIENTELE: Adults 18+, Married Couples, Dating/Engaged Couples, Families
SPECIALTIES: Premarital Counseling, Grief/Loss, Parenting Issues, Divorce Recovery, Blended Families
Jared is a Licensed Professional Counselor who graduated from UTD with a BA in Criminal Justice and recently attended Amberton University, graduating with an MA in Professional Counseling. During his graduate practicum, he worked with Carrollton Springs Hospital, where he helped provide Group Counseling services to patients mainly dealing with addiction challenges. Jared also works in a private practice and works with populations who are struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship distress, addiction, and trauma. Having been in recovery for nearly 5 years, Jared has a heart for people struggling with all types of addiction.

Whether it be substance, pornography, eating, or unhealthy attachments to individuals, addiction is a tough deal, and nobody should have to go through it alone. My own journey to recovery consisted of having a strong network of counselors, becoming involved in local ministries and attending 12-Step meetings. I encourage all people who are struggling to take action and start doing the work that will lead to a healthier, more self-actualized existence. The great theologian, C.S. Lewis once wrote, “The gates of hell are locked from the inside,” so whether we like it or not, whether we believe it or not, we are more often than not, our own worst enemy. The good news? There are tools to help you get out of your own way and start building a relationship with the loving God who created us. I’d love to help you discover and utilize these tools to help build the life you truly deserve.

Jared is currently not in network with any insurance panels but can provide superbills for clients to submit on their own.

CLIENTELE: Adults 18+, Married Couples, Dating/Engaged Couples, Families
SPECIALTIES: Premarital Counseling, Grief/Loss, Parenting Issues, Divorce Recovery, Blended Families
Jared is a Licensed Professional Counselor who graduated from UTD with a BA in Criminal Justice and recently attended Amberton University, graduating with an MA in Professional Counseling. During his graduate practicum, he worked with Carrollton Springs Hospital, where he helped provide Group Counseling services to patients mainly dealing with addiction challenges. Jared also works in a private practice and works with populations who are struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship distress, addiction, and trauma. Having been in recovery for nearly 5 years, Jared has a heart for people struggling with all types of addiction.

Whether it be substance, pornography, eating, or unhealthy attachments to individuals, addiction is a tough deal, and nobody should have to go through it alone. My own journey to recovery consisted of having a strong network of counselors, becoming involved in local ministries and attending 12-Step meetings. I encourage all people who are struggling to take action and start doing the work that will lead to a healthier, more self-actualized existence. The great theologian, C.S. Lewis once wrote, “The gates of hell are locked from the inside,” so whether we like it or not, whether we believe it or not, we are more often than not, our own worst enemy. The good news? There are tools to help you get out of your own way and start building a relationship with the loving God who created us. I’d love to help you discover and utilize these tools to help build the life you truly deserve.

Jared is currently not in network with any insurance panels but can provide superbills for clients to submit on their own.

SPECIALTIES: Childhood Trauma, Family Issues (Conflict, Communication, etc), Relational Issues/Relational Distress, Trauma, Codependency
Renee’s practice is named “PS Counseling” because she believes everyone has the ability to continue to revise their life story up until the day they meet our Heavenly Father.

People are not responsible for WHAT happened to us in their childhood, but they ARE responsible for what they do with it as adults. People will be remembered for what they did with what was given to them, both the blessings and the pains. Did they pass it on or did they end the generational trauma?

Renee specializations in:
• Mother Wounds/Family of Origin Wounds/Generational Trauma
• Marriage/Couples/Relationship Healing (including parent/ child)
• Medical/Health Concerns • Parenting Support
• PTSD and Complex PTSD

Professionally, Renee is a retired nurse who went on to become a Licensed Professional Counselor. She has completed all levels of training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), which is an attachment-based approach to relationship repair; and, she is EMDR trained, which is a method for healing both big and small traumas. She uses a system and attachment-based approach, which translates to: She believes our past influences our present. However, this does not mean a client has to relive all their past hurts. Rather, she is primarily seeking take-away(s) from significant past events. She believes in working together, with the goal of exploring what is under the surface, what is unspoken and unknown.

SPECIALTIES: Addictions (drugs, sex, alcohol, etc),  Adolescent Issues, Anxiety and/or Depression, Family Issues (Conflict, Communication, etc), Relational Issues/Relational Distress
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate supervised by Julia Wesley, LMFT-S. I like to describe myself as a guide, helping you pick up and hold the pen as you go on to write your own story. I work with individuals, couples, and families as they navigate transitions, confusion, and stress and help them find peace in the storm. My goal is to help prepare you with the tools and insights you need to establish healthy relationships and fully experience life.

I  want to create a comfortable and nonjudgmental environment where anyone can feel free to be their authentic selves and find the courage to unshackle their heaviest burdens. I primarily utilize a structural approach, which helps redefine the relationships and establish appropriate boundaries. I also like to use reflective and experiential techniques so that the client does not simply know but rather fully understands their goals and changes. I believe that all of this begins and ends with the courage to do something that makes a meaningful difference.

I have a BA in Youth and Family Ministry from Harding University. I also received my MS in Marriage and Family Therapy there as well. While my favorite demographic to work with is teenagers, I also see individuals, couples, and families with all kinds of relational difficulties. In my free time I enjoy watching movies and playing disc golf, and have recently found a new passion in table-top Role Playing Games.
