About Kenna

Life can throw curveballs at us that we are least expecting and when we are least
expecting them to. Maybe you are trying to find help for your child or adolescent, but it feels so
overwhelming that you are just not sure where to start. My goal is to help your child or
adolescent grow and develop into the person that they were created to be. If they have
experienced trauma from their past or are currently experiencing struggles in their life, I would
love to be the person to walk alongside them on their healing journey. I have always had a
passion for helping children in all walks of life, and have years of previous experience working
with children in many different arenas.

I have a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Dallas Baptist University, and I am
currently in the Master’s of Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Houston Baptist
University, under the supervision of Dr. Renee Fauria, Ed.D., MA, LPC-S, and Mikayla
Williams, MA, LPC, NCC. I have experience working with children as young as 3, and
adolescents as old as 17, who are experiencing trauma, anxiety, grief, life transitions, and
social/emotional challenges. I will use either child-centered non-directive or child-centered
directive play therapy with your child, which simply means either guiding your child through
structured play, or letting them take the lead and seeing what they come up with themselves
during our time together. This allows the child to feel like they are understood through a
language that works for them - PLAY! If play therapy does not work for your child, or if you
have an adolescent, I will utilize person-centered therapy. Additionally, I also offer faith-based
therapy should you wish to have that for your child or adolescent.

“Children don’t know how to ask for what they don’t know they need. Their asking
comes in the form of behavior.” - Bonnie Harris
