Emily Head is currently a LPC at North Texas Christian Counseling, Ltd. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in child development as well as post baccalaureate teaching certification from Texas Woman’s University. After being in the classroom in a title one school, she recognized the need these children have for counseling. After much prayer, she continued on at TWU and received her Master’s degree in Counseling and Development with an emphasis on play therapy and school counseling. She is now working towards her doctorate in counselor education and supervision.
After working as a school counselor for four years she realized counseling in the school setting was not what she expected and that there was very little time to truly give herself to the children that needed her. The Lord again led her down another path, into private practice where there she can counsel individuals through God’s word and devote her time in helping others. One of Emily’s specialties is working with individuals who have experienced trauma. She is working towards a certification as a trauma specialist. Another area of expertise Christ has blessed her with is the ability to work with children, adolescents, special needs children, and families. Her Registered Play Therapy Supervisor license is pending and she is a certified parent trainer. Even though much of her experience is with children, adolescents, and families, she has also has extensive experience and training in working with addictions, marital issues, grief, anxiety, depression, and various personality disorders.
Emily’s heart is for all people to be restored through the healing power of the Holy Spirit and for people to see how incredible having a real relationship with Christ is. She passionately cares about the youth, couples, families, and individuals helping them to restore balance in their lives and relationships the way God intends it. She is honored and humbled to be used to help others and knows that God has a plan for good things for His people (Jeremiah 29:11). Through Christ we can have restoration, healing, and a fulfillment that we will never find outside of having relationship with Him.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. –Revelation 3:20
