About Heights Family Counseling
Deciding to start therapy is a big step in investing in yourself and family. For many parents, they have used all the tools they know to help with a struggling child. Heights Family Counseling is here to provide more tools and to help ease any burdens. Many adults struggle with the stressors in life. We can provide a safe environment for self-exploration. Lets work together to find happiness in your life.
The elementary age is a critical age for children. It is often the time we witness emotional difficulties, such as heightened anxiety and sadness in our children. Heights Family therapy strives to create a safe place to discover different emotions and allow for healthy expression of feelings.
Whether you are experiencing work-life issues, depression, anxiety, existential concerns (determining values and finding meaning and purpose), needing anger management, or having a family stress, Heights Family Counseling can help get you started in a new direction.
Heights Family counseling provides counseling services for both couples and families. We are extensively trained in premarital, marriage and family counseling.
Play therapy is the treatment of choice for young children. It uses play, the natural language of children, to provide each child with an opportunity for emotional expression
Heights Family Therapy owner, Amy Rollo, M.A., LSSP, LPC-S has specialized in evaluation services for well over 15 years. Amy understands that the process is much more than determining a diagnosis.
Heights Family Counseling specializes in working with individuals and families with various special needs. We understand that worry and fear begins before the official diagnosis, and the mixed feelings that leave parents overwhelmed after the diagnosis.
Often times parents need support. Parenting is the most difficult job and comes with no instruction manual. Heights Family Counseling seeks to provide guidance and support, as well as techniques targeted to parenting your child.
Heights Family Counseling's owner, Amy Rollo, M.A., LSSP, LPC-S, offers LPC Supervision for interns in the needs of an on and off-site supervisor. Amy's approach is to help guide the intern to find their own therapy style while teaching clinical skills.
As a counselor, I understand the bravery it takes to be completely vulnerable with another individual. My role in the counseling room is to meet you right where you are with respect, compassion, and non-judgement. I find it a privilege to journey with a client.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor and owner at Heights Family Counseling. Previously, I was the Clinical Director at Cy-Hope Counseling, a large group practice located in Cypress, Texas. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Texas A&M University and a Master’s degree in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from Southern Methodist University.
From Our Blog
We have all felt guilt and shame before, but do you know the different between the two? Before attending a seminar on guilt, shame, and resilience, (given by Allison Marek LCSW, CDWF and inspired by Brené Brown’s research on shame, vulnerability and connection), I do not think that I would have been able to accurately describe the difference between guilt and shame. After the seminar I felt enlightened by what I had learned. Here is what I took away from it and I hope that you can take something away from it as well.
Self-care is yes, taking care of oneself, but it goes deeper than that. It is being intentional about taking care of oneself, emotionally and physically. It is listening to what your body is telling you. Sometimes, amidst our busy lives, it is easy to get caught up in what everyone else needs and forget our own needs.
I’ve been sharing some of my thoughts as they pop up the past week or two on the Heights Family Counseling Twitter: “Relax, you don’t need all the answers all at once. You’ll get there with time. ~Amy- my own self-soothing thoughts today” or “Just breathe. Everything is going to be okay. You got this; you've survived 100 % of bad days before. ~Amy- because sometimes we need to hear what our brain doesn't always tell us!”
