Amy Rollo, M.A., LSSP, LPC-S
Licensed Specialist in School Psychology
Licensed Professional Counselor - Supervisor

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. I am in the process of completing my doctorate, studying at Texas A&M University Commerce and Northcentral University, specializing in child and adolescent counseling and marriage and family therapy, respectively. I am  licensed as a Professional Counselor Supervisor and Licensed Specialist in School Psychology.

I have worked extensively with individuals experiencing life stressors including existential concerns (finding meaning and purpose in life), stress, anxiety, panic, depression, and anger. I enjoy working with women to help with the struggles of adjusting to marriage, entering the work world, finding purpose in their work and motherhood. Additionally, I can help clients cope with the transition of ending a marriage. 

I have experience in AD/HD coaching, play therapy, and counseling children, adolescents, couples and adults. When working with children, I believe in working with the entire family system. Whether it is providing support to a parent who is struggling with a child with behavioral difficulties at home, suggesting discipline techniques, or building the family communication and connection together. My training includes working with children and adults with special needs where I focus on maximizing strengths, increasing coping skills, and working on emotional and behavioral regulation.

Additionally, I have extensive experience in Psychoeducational, AD/HD and Autism Spectrum Disorder Evaluations. I have specialized in evaluation services for over 15 years and have worked along side medical doctors, speech pathologists, diagnosticians, licensed counselors, and psychologists. My experience has allowed me to see a problem through multiple lenses and not just to focus in one area. I believe with a comprehensive evaluation, strengths can identified and early intervention can be provided. 

When I am not in session, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have 2 young children, a husband of almost 15 years and a chocolate lab. I enjoy distance running, novice family bike rides, playing tennis, spending time on any beach, hot yoga, and checking out all the dining options in the city!
